I’ve had a wonderful birthday week! Last Sunday we got to go to church with Heidi’s family at Northridge Friends, our home church here in Wichita and then ate lunch with the part of that family that wasn’t involved in some other activity. Such fun to have them around! Then Sunday evening we went to Long Horn Steakhouse with several couples, friends who have stayed in our lives for more total years than I care to add up. What a way to celebrate, even though my birthday was still a day away!
On Monday, we went to Newton to look at a larger motor home that was on a used car lot there. It looked as good in person as it did on the internet, so we made arrangements to buy it and we picked it up on Wednesday afternoon! How’s that for a birthday present?
Another birthday present was a painting that Heidi painted at an evening with the women of Northridge. She knows me pretty well, since both the colors and the flower are pretty special to me. It’s hanging on the wall in the kitchen of the new motor home now!
Any woman that I know loves getting a haircut and I saw my favorite stylist on Tuesday. I told her she could have free rein except for all over color and as always, I was pleased with her work. And then on Friday I got another “present”. I had cataract surgery on my left eye! I can sing along the old song “I can see clearly now”! The right one may or may not be done in the near future, but I’m seeing at a distance well enough to just use reading glasses at present. The right eye just doesn’t see as well. Just don’t look too closely at the wrinkles!
I’ll have pictures of the inside of the Pace Arrow in a few days. We’re changing out the RV refrigerator for a residential one, since the existing one didn’t turn on. Can’t say that I’m sad at all about that! We also have a couple of recliners on order to replace the director’s chairs in the living room. We had things pretty well put away until we turned on the water and discovered a pond on both levels under the kitchen sink. Once it dries out and we get things arranged again, we’ll show it to all of you!
