Mr. kenju and his baby girl, along with Curious George, Freddy the Frog and Big Bird - circa 1974.
*********I have a story over here today too. Go! Read! It's a good one.
After spending the morning getting supplies ready for the rehearsal dinner and wedding, I went to my wholesale florist to pick up my $1,000+ order for the weekend's events. They usually do a good job of getting what I ask for, but this time, they outdid themselves! I had ordered about 200 garden roses from South America, and all but 4 of them were beautiful, and so fragrant you could get drunk on the heavenly aroma.
A florist friend of mine came to help me condition them, which consists of unwrapping, stripping low foliage and re-cutting the stems before putting them in buckets of clean water. Thanks to her speed, we were done in 2 hours. Had I done them by myself, it would have taken four and maybe more. In addition to her help, she brought me a huge bowl of pasta salad which was excellent, as is everything she cooks.
I reached the hospital at 5:10 pm, and my daughter came in from No. Virginia about 30 minutes later. Mr. kenju is always happy to see her - and less so to see me - LOL. He has again made progress; we watched him eat dinner entirely by himself. The ease with which he now uses a fork is heartening. I hope that in a few days we can see progress in the use of his leg and foot. As of now, he cannot walk.
Ideally, I'd sit here for 2-3 hours, reading and commenting on your posts. But I am tired and I have so much to do tomorrow, that I am going to bed right now. I haven't been in bed at 9:30 pm in years! I hope it doesn't set a trend.....LOL
