A Productive Day

But first, grand daughter, Catia, has managed to break her arm.  On Sunday evening she was jumping on a trampoline and managed to fall off (somehow) breaking her right arm.  She had X-rays Sunday night, saw the Orthopedic doctor yesterday, and is in the hospital at 0645 Eastern Time this morning to have it set and cast.  They’ll “put her out” because of the pain of resetting the bone.


Now, onto our productive day.  After we got ourselves ready to roll yesterday, we dropped my eyeglasses off at Berries Optical in Brunswick for repair.  The nose piece had broken off and they are one of the few places left that will solder it back on. 

Then we went to Mike and Peggy’s where Mike and I put the gear box and the leveling leg through the paces.  We discovered another design flaw (Nah, say it isn’t so!) and corrected it.  Now we are ready for reassembly just as soon as the new drive shaft arrives sometime today.

We returned home around noon time for lunch followed by a short nap.  My glasses were ready so we made a trip back to Brunswick to pick them up (it’s so nice to be able to see clearly once again).

Judy has been wanting a “hoodie” (hooded sweatshirt) for quite awhile now, but hasn’t been able to find one that suits her taste.  A trip to L. L. Bean ensued with a successful ending.

While we were at Bean’s I received a phone call from Mike saying that our mail had arrived and that it was “Martooni” Time so we made an expeditious return to Mike and Peggy’s.

We returned home for dinner, a little television, and some reading.  It was lights out at 9:30 bringing an end to a rather productive day.  Not sure what’s on the agenda for today, but it’s going to be a rainy day so snuggling inside reading will be one of the items.  Picking up the new part will be another item – who knows beyond that.

Take Care Until Next Time - - - - - -
