Up And Out With The Chickens

We were up and out real early yesterday (but no where near as early as we were in beautiful downtown Campbellsville) to get to the cardiology’s office so that Miss Judy could run on their treadmill.  After a chest scan, an echocardiogram, a stress test, another chest scan with an isotope after the stress test, it has been determined that she has a heart and it is in good health.  Whew, this could have been a biggie; what a relief.  Now, if we can just keep ourselves out of the doctor’s offices for the rest of the year.

The landing legs arrived yesterday afternoon just as promised by UPS.  The driver who brought them said no signature was required and he didn’t know why the other driver didn’t leave them.  I told him that it was raining and he probably didn’t want to leave the package outside which I appreciated.  A two day delivery was still far better than what we’d expected.

Anyhow, I tore into the box like a five year old with a birthday gift and can tell you that they are one good looking set of legs.  Now, I just need to get the the old leg on the passenger side outta the coach and then in goes the new legs.  Being that it is supposed to be cold and windy today, I will probably only get the driver’s side leg installed – no sense rushing into these things.

Waaaaaaay back on December 30th, we ordered (from Judy’s new sock loom, an instruction book on using a sock loom, and a new router to replace the head ache we currently have.  Well finally all that stuff arrived yesterday – it certainly didn’t take the same route as the Landing Gear took.  Judy is happy with her new toy and the verdict is still out on the new router.  We are getting good 4G speeds, but we were still getting disconnects last night.  Hopefully that will settle out once the router gets itself acclimated.  Only time will tell.

This afternoon we “need” to go to Hobby Lobby and/or Michael’s to get some yarn for Judy’s toy.  Also, I am not (nor have I ever been) happy with acrylic paints, they dry out waaay tooo fast, so I want to pick up some oil paints which means that I’ll need to get some odorless turpentine as well.  Then I should be able to paint just as good as Whistler’s Mother.  I’ll still need to acquire some talent, or at least patience, somewhere along the line.  Practice, practice, practice.
