Elder Abuse?

I have no idea how it happened, but when Travis was here helping me tear down the stalls in the barn on Monday we stopped and went up to the house to get something cold to drink and Terry asked how I got a shiner on my eye. I honestly don’t know. Nothing hit me while we were taking things apart and as clumsy as I am, I don’t remember walking into anything. But there is definitely a big bruise there. If anybody asks me, I’m going to say I’m victim of elder abuse, I just don’t know who assaulted me. 😊

As most of you who read the blog know, Terry has been under the weather for a couple of weeks now. It seemed like she was rebounding a few days ago, but she’s back to having no energy and just feeling lethargic overall. Repeated labs have not shown her testing positive for COVID or the flu, but yesterday the doctor’s office did call and say she has a bacterial infection. They couldn’t specify what kind of infection it was, but they ordered another prescription for antibiotics. Hopefully it will get her feeling better soon.

Since Terry didn’t feel like going to town, I went into Northport yesterday to run a few errands, including stopping at Publix to pick up some milk and some other things we needed. I stopped at the CVS in Gordo on the way home to see if her prescription was ready, but it wasn’t and they said it would be about another half hour. It’s only about three miles from there to the house, and because it was over 90 degrees outside and I had milk and some other cold stuff from the grocery store in the van, I came home and dropped everything off, made a pit stop, and then went back to the pharmacy. Even so I had to wait another 15 minutes or so before the prescription was ready. Terry spells her full name Theresa with an H, and they had it spelled as Teresa on the prescription, which caused some confusion. But with that straightened out I picked up the prescription and headed back home.

Except for answering a bunch of emails, I didn’t get much else accomplished the rest of the day. Hopefully today I will be more productive.

It looks like we have a couple of more days in the 90s before things start to cool down just a bit. Not much, but I’ll take anything we can get at this point.

And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.

  1. A church youth group was having a car wash as a fund raiser when it rained. They made a sign saying, “We wash; God rinses.”
