Pumpkin Farm for the kids, and I hang back.

I knew that today was the day that Loyce was taking the older grand kids to the pumkin farm South of Gardner, Kansas.  With my recent surgery, I had been excused from this task, and my DIL Daniel would be going along to help maintain order.

Grandmas are not very heavy in the disciplinary department.  So having one of the moms along is a must.  But I was not required just the same.

I decided that since my older son Chris and his wife Melissa were having a garage sale, I would stop by over there for a while and help keep them company as they waited for customers to arrive.  By the time I went over, most of the trade had already gone thru the garage, so I wasn't in the way, and didn't have to help much with any customers either.

He did have a small TV on one of the college games, and we watched that as we shot the bull.  Before long here came grandma and Danielle with some very dirty and tired kids so I left the garage for home.

Back here things got slowed down a bunch as I became interested in the remaining college games.  In fact things just stopped and I watched games until just a little while ago.  How does that happen?  I did just finally change the channel to something I can watch on mute in order to catch up on some of the blogs, but the day is gone and I didn't do a lick of work.

Perhaps that is good for my surgery to heal up a bit without any trauma from bending and twisting, but the Doctors are certain that you need to keep moving in order not to get stagnated.  So somewhere in the middle has to be the correct answer.  I need to get started working on the motorhome if we are to leave out of here after thanksgiving.

  1. Couple of upsets out there in college games today. I was hoping Stanford would be one of them but they got the win in the third OT. Great game.

    Don't be too hard on yourself and listen to your body. Take it slow and don't'll know when it's time to take it easy.

  2. Hey Rod, your retired remember, you don't need an excuse not to do anything. Life is always good when your retired, keep repeating that, you may believe it someday too. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna..
