Feeling Better

Thank you to everyone who has asked how Terry is feeling. After three weeks of being miserable, it seems the last round of meds is helping and she is feeling quite a bit better. She still gets fatigued easily and is fretting because she doesn’t have the energy to do everything she wants to get done, but she has not spiked a fever in over a week and says she doesn’t ache all over as she had been doing. I’ll admit this had us both scared, and we’re grateful for everyone’s prayers and positive thoughts.

She felt well enough the other day to model the new shirt I bought her. I think the world deserves to know what an amazing man she married. 😊

With Terry still being forced to take it easy, something she’s not very good at, I’ve been occupying my time with getting some small chores done around the property. Things like mowing the back pasture, extending the lengths of conduit we use to hold up the shade cover over Alli’s outside kennel, emptying and cleaning her little swimming pool in it and then refilling it, and such.

I spent some time working on my Kubota tractor yesterday. One of the adjuster arms for the three-point hitch seems to have gotten cross threaded and I tried to fix it. As it turned out, that job is above my pay grade. I think this one is going to require a trip to Tuscaloosa Tractor to get resolved. I called my buddy Jesse Bolton down in Florida and told him my life was a lot easier when he lived right across the street and was always happy to help me with things like that.

Today our son Travis is coming over and we are going to get started on building the backstop for the shooting range. This is a project we have both been looking forward to doing. I’ll have more on that in tomorrow’s blog.

Congratulations Butch Williams, winner of our drawing for an audiobook of my friend Ken Rossignol’s Murder USA. These stories of murders and of a few cases of attempted murder over 60 years include vivid descriptions of ghastly crimes not intended for the faint of heart or children. Many of these murders went unsolved for long periods, and some still have not been solved or had justice obtained for the victims. One case of a killer allowed out of a mental health facility after he killed two people on the East Coast allowed him to rape and murder 3,000 miles away on the West Coast. Another serial killer wiped out an entire family in one night of terror and is believed to have killed dozens more. A task force that included 75 FBI agents and a dozen county and state police from two states found the killer who set the gold standard for serial killers. Then there are the stories of a rare case of an Amish murder-suicide and that of a Navy ensign who killed his estranged wife’s lover with a crossbow.

We had 21 entries this time around. Stay tuned, a new contest starts soon! Note: Due to the high shipping cost of printed books and Amazon restrictions on e-books and audiobooks to foreign countries, only entries with US addresses and e-mail addresses are allowed. After 90 days, unclaimed prizes revert back to the drawing pool for a future contest.

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. Does anyone else see the irony here?

Thought For The Day – Don’t block all of your haters. Love a couple so they can report back to headquarters.
