Big day yesterday.
I started my day with an early morning visit to the doctor.
You will recall that 2 months ago I had my annual physical. My blood work came up with a couple of problems. High triglycirides and low iron.
Doctor said cut back on your drinking to correct the triglyciride problem. I did. By 2/3rds. It worked! My triglyciride count dropped over 200 points and well into the average level.
What a good boy am I!
She told me to eat spinach and an occasional steak to correct the iron problem. I have been eating spinach like Popeye! At least 1 small can a day! It worked. No iron problem.
What good living will do for you!
Then to Lisa’s to baby sit Ally. She was still running a low grade fever.
I continued teaching her how to tell time. Does not seem to be working. I think she might be a bit too young to accept the concept. We played cards. She beat me each time! We played chess. She beat me!
I made macaroni and cheese again at her specific request. Her favorite dish! I sexed it up a bit by using 3 different cheeses. She did not know the difference. Tasted quite good! We both ate 2 plates full!
She only napped for 1 hour. She seemed better.
I took her temperatue occasinally at Lisa’s direction. The low grade fever remained.
However, Ally seemed fine to me. We played all day. She was active all day. Never stopped!
I took her temperature several times at Lisa’s direction. The fever was always there. But her body was cool and again she was active. Extremely active!
I telephoned Lisa and told her that the thermometer was broke. Ally had no fever as far as I was concerned. Buy a new thermometer on the way home to confirm my judgment.
Five minutes later Lisa telephoned again. She said I should take my temperature and then Ally’s. If mine was normal and Ally’s not, then Ally had a temperature! It was not the thermometer!
I took my temperature. Normal. Took Ally’s. 100.7.
Mothers know everything!
Bocci last night. The last matches of the season.
I am glad the season is over. My whole team is. We sucked! The last place team!
We won 1 out of 3 games last night. All were close. But the result was no big deal!
Only 3 showed up on the other team to play. It takes 4 for a match. The game still goes on. What happens is the low numbered team loses 2 balls a round. That means we were rolling 8 balls to their 6 each time. We still lost! We could not beat a team with 2 broken legs and 1 broken arm!
Larry Smith’s team had a one game play off later in the evening to determine the victor of our small 4 team tournamnet. Many stayed to watch the event. Everything on the line in one game! Larry’s team won! They are to be congratulated!
I then stopped at Don’s place for a drink. The bocci players were all there. A good time was had by all!
I wish it noted I consumed only 2 drinks all night. One at the bocci matches and 1 at Don’s Place. I intnend to continue being good boy!
Lisa just called. Ally still has a fever and now is coughing and has a running nose. My services are required again today! Sorry for Ally, but good for me. I have enjoyed this whole experience with her this week!
Today is a special day. Robert’s birthday! He is 5 years old! I just telephoned and congratualted him!
Time moves swiftly! I remember his birth. I helped deliver him. Lisa insisted. An experience! My generation never was admitted even on the same floor at the time my children were born.
Enjoy the day!
