The last week has been a busy and interesting one.
We’ve spent several days out and about looking at more trees, plants and shrubs. Thanks to Mary Francis Poe for pointing out that I need to have different species of blueberries for pollination. I didn’t know that so we bought a few more varieties. Mary is Dr. Hoe Poe’s wife. He is an anesthesiologist with whom I worked in California. They truly are supportive and loyal friends. Thanks Mary Francis for the advice!
Pam’s brother built our home and did the landscaping in front of the house. So this Spring he’s going to landscape the backyard and the street side of the house. Just can’t wait to start planting some of the plants. Hostas, ferns and ground cover in the shade near the side of the garage. I’ve have to take some pictures of everything after all is planted and blooming.
We had Pam’s brother’s family — Doug, Heather & Gunner over for dinner on Saturday. Tuesday was another long fun day. Pam had her thyroid biopsy down at Passavant Hospital in the North Hills area of Pittsburgh.
I guess the long busy days finally caught up with me. Yesterday, I was foggy most of the day and had a lot of trouble remembering things. Simple things. Needless to say I felt very tired. I’m just out of shape, that’s all.
I’ve noticed another problem beginning to surface. Over the past week I’ve had at least 3 episodes of wetting the bed at night. Will definitely need to keep an eye open on this one. No signs of urinary tract infection. Will monitor it and watch liquid intake before bedtime.

White Lie Joke
— M. M.
I am five feet, three inches tall and pleasingly plump. After I had a minor accident, my mother accompanied me to the emergency room.
The triage nurse asked for my height and weight, and I blurted out, "Five-foot-eight and 125 pounds."
While the nurse pondered this information, my mother leaned over to me. "Sweetheart," she gently chided, "this is not the Internet."
