We’ve had a busy few days since we returned to Liberty. We had two weeks worth of phone calls to return and mail to check out. Our granddaughter Jordan is getting married in September and her first bridal shower is today, so we got to pick out a present for her and Marc from their registry. That is always so much fun for me, trying to find just the right thing.
There were also errands to run and while we were headed for the lumber yard, the brakes on the pickup refused to disengage. When we called the number on our insurance card to arrange for a tow, we discovered that the pickup policy didn’t have roadside assistance. Fortunately, the pickup was at “home”, so we added the tow package to the insurance and it went into effect at midnight. The tow service then hauled it to our mechanic and they have it ready for us tomorrow. We could have had it Friday, but we were out of town.
One of the perks of retirement as we see it is being able to volunteer when our neighbors or our church needs help. Northridge Friends Church has called a new pastor and he and his family needed someone to drive the U-Haul truck from Iowa to Wichita, so we went to Union, IA on Thursday and back on Friday. A side benefit of the trip was that we caught up with winter friend Levi Willits from our church in Tucson. His wife Ramona was gone but we had a nice visit with Levi anyway.
I neglected to mention that while we were in Alaska LeRoy got a message from Jordan asking if he would do a devotional for their shower, so he’s had fun putting that together. I mentioned that to a friend at church this morning and he said “Oh that should be fun. I love the way LeRoy’s mind works!” Does that give you just an inkling of what might be forthcoming if LeRoy is left to his own devices?
