(ALLEN’S CAR–MINE FOR 17 DAYS!)

In my senior years all I ask is a roof over my head, food in my belly and clothes on my back but I find myself having so much more.

The other day went to café Vico for dinner and then to see a good performance of “Beauty and the Beast”—on Friday the excellent movie “Genius” which I have written about.

Monday I took a ‘me day’ (yeah like every day isn’t a ‘me day’!) I had to go to my primary doc for blood work and will go back to go over the results today. I didn’t know how long it would take at the doc’s but I was out in 15 minutes. I checked out the paper and saw “Finding Dory” was going to be on at 2:15 so I went to the theatre getting there what I thought was 45 minutes early only to discover a show was going on in 10 minutes. The icing on the cake was that I had a free ticket with their reward system so instead of paying $11.49 ($3 higher because it was extra for 3D) I paid nothing! After that, since it was so nearby and I had fasted for the blood work and it was sort of early for dinner but late for lunch (any excuse will do) I went to Sweet Tomatoes where I had a 50% off coupon so only paid $4.

Tuesday it was off to the hand surgeon and good news there–he said that the finger looks great and is almost sure we can start talking prosthesis before the end of July. Meanwhile he said I don’t have to have it bandaged anymore but if I wasn’t ready for that (I’m not!) instead of wrapping it up all I needed was two bandages–one over the top and the other around the top–I did look at it today and didn’t faint so that’s a good sign!!! And then I had the day to go to the beach, the art museum, Los Olas Boulevard and the Riverwalk using the water taxi!

Today I have a friend coming over to clean my kitchen and I can go to Wilton Manors, after I check Allen’s place, get his mail,. etc., to see what’s new there, stop for a bite at Cheddar’s as I haven’t been there in a long, long time, and maybe check Out of the Closet for a couple of things I want plus walk around as I haven’t been in that area for awhile.

I know right around the corner something ‘bad’ is waiting to happen—at my age it is part of living—like breaking my kneecap, chopping of my finger, having a heart valve replaced—as since 1999 when I had congestive heart failure something bad has happened every year BUT right now I am living a life that couldn’t be better plus a 2016 Caddie to get around to live it!!

I LOVE GETTING UP IN THE MORNING—WELL, LATE MORNING!
