My cousin, Patricia, who lives in Fort Leavenworth, KS had to have emergency surgery today. She is doing well. Her husband is in the military as was stationed in Egypt but was allowed to fly back to be with her. Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
Yesterday the Sears repairman finally showed up for the “scheduled” appointment to work on Bob and Marcy’s refrigerator. They have been waiting to get it fixed for a week and a half. Bob explained to the guy what type of sounds the refrigerator was making. He told the repairman he thought that it was either the capacitor or the compressor. The repairman agreed and told him he thought the same. He replaced the capacitor and it still would not work so he ordered a new compressor. The compressor is being shipped overnight and should arrive by Saturday; which is good news. But…..the catch is getting Sears to send a repairman back out to install the compressor. The next available date the repairman showed available was December 30th. That is crazy!! The repairman was very sympathetic to their situation and gave Bob and John the name of a man at the local Sears store who is over the techs for the area who should be able to get someone to install it quickly. They will be going to Sears to see him in person on Monday. We will keep you posted on the outcome.
John was busy today. First thing this morning he was on the phone with Verizon trying to get our internet service fixed. He finally had to go to the Verizon store to straighten things out. Then, he was off to the Freightliner Dealership to pick up some parts. When he got back he replaced the cab shocks on the truck. He got some grease on his jeans but that was ok since they are the torn ones planned to throw away. As soon as he took them off I threw them in the trash.
Late this afternoon we took Christmas gifts over to Bob and Marcy’s and then made a Wal-mart run for some paper products and a few more groceries. The traffic was heavy and the store crowded. I am so glad I am finished with my Christmas shopping.
As we were walking into Wal-mart John noticed he did not have his wallet. When we got back home he looked in all of the usual places but it was nowhere to be found. Now, remember those jeans with the grease on them……..well…guess where the wallet was. Yep, in the trash in the pants pocket. I am so glad we thought to look there.
Tomorrow we are headed to Lake Lincoln Park just outside Wesson, MS to meet firefighter Nathan Bell (Dawg) and his family for the weekend.
Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
