Still In Holding Pattern

Chucks visit to the eye doctor yesterday was a mixed diagnosis, the swelling in the back of the eye was getting better and to expedite the healing, it was decided to inject a shot directly into the eye.  Needless to say this was something that I did not witness.  By next week they are hoping that he will be able to have a prescription for eyeglasses, and once he has those on his face, our butts will be setting in the truck heading down the road, can’t wait to get my arms around our grandson.  We are meeting up with them in Las Vegas, once our plans come together.

We have some nice neighbors here, and went to the movies with them the other night.  Seen Letters to Julia, and it was actually pretty good, even though you knew the whole story before going in.  Took a run to Cripple Creek with Cyndi and John, (daughter an son-in-law) Friday night.  Cripple Creek, once a old mining town, is now a little gambling town about 60 miles from here, up in the mountains.  They are really hurting what with the recession, and offering all kinds of deals.  We went for the seafood buffet, which was wonderful.  Huge crab legs, great shrimp, prime rib, all for 22 dollars a person, but it gets better, it was 2 for one!  Of course Chuck left enough in the machines to help cover the extra cost, I broke even but the kids did well, and we left while they were still way up.  Coming out there was about 3 inches of snow on the car, but the roads were clear, and we made it back safely.  

That about does it for the week, other than going to the store, trying to find a few thing in storage, throwing something at the TV when the cowboys lost to the brothers, cheering when Russell lost again.

Hey, growing old ain't for sissies. Glad everyone is doing well. Aches and pains are minor compared to some other maladies. Best to hold off cashing in on your good luck 'til Vegas. Payouts are bigger there!

Hugs to you both,
