During the creation and editing of this entry, only the third picture shows up; we'll see what happens when I actually click "save". If you only see red "X's" on two pictures, it's an AOL problem of some sort, no doubt.
Wednesday morning, Cliff went off on a road trip with his brother in his classic car. Somewhere in Minnesota there's a huge car show, and that's where they are now. Tomorrow they'll arrive home... I hope. They've been working on the car in the motel parking lot, with the help of some other classic-car owners.
It's been strange, after having Cliff so close at hand for ten weeks (yes, it's been that long since his surgery), not seeing him for days. This is probably good for both of us, but it feels uncomfortable, having him away.
He's found out there's not much way to eat heart-healthy, low-sodium stuff when you're eating out; the best thing he can do is limit his intake in general, and he's trying to do that, he told me on the phone last night. At least he took plenty of good stuff in a cooler, for snacks.
Meanwhile, I've been eating junk while he's away. Not snacking between meals, mind you. Just eating the stuff I usually don't. Popcorn for supper, grilled cheese sandwiches... oh, and the granddaughters and I had biscuits and gravy this morning for breakfast. It's a good thing I don't drive, or I'd be going to Pizza Hut's noon buffet. I'll be very surprised if I show a weight loss this week.
We got over an inch of rain yesterday, for which I'm very grateful. Our Dish-TV dish has been installed, so we now have wonderful reception (and yes, Joanna, Grissom does look even better). I can call the rinky-dink cable company July 7, when our contract is up, and be rid of them. From now on, I'll pay for TV, phone, and Internet as one bill, at Sprint. We've had both Direct TV and Dish before, and I realize there's the drawback of losing television during storms. It's worth it to have a sharp, clear picture.
That's about all the odds and ends I have today.
