Up early for coffee, I had the truck down to the body shop for an 08:30AM appointment, they said it would take about an hour and a half, so I walked about a block down the street to the Glider Diner, got a paper out of the machine, and went in for breakfast. This place has been around forever, It is one of those stainless steel art deco diners that were all the rage in the 50’s and 60’s. I wish I would have brought my camera but since the truck was being worked on I left it home. Breakfast was good, all the coffee you could drink and I ordered French Toast, The bill came to a total of $4,49 almost 60’s prices still.
At 11:00Am I got Wendy’s car and took her for her first Doctor’s appointment since the surgery, I guess you can say we got good news and bad news, the good new for Wendy is her foot is healing as expected and she doesn’t show any signs of infection, the bad news is she will have the cast for 4 weeks, but she will not be able to put any weight on it for 6-8 weeks and right now he wants it to be elevated except for meals. I did the math and it looks like my stay in PA. will not be over until a few days before Christmas if I am lucky. I was hoping to be home maybe around Thanksgiving weekend but that’s not going to happen now. Oh well I guess I can plan on snow and old man winter again, I don’t have my buddy John Deere here with his plow either so I will be reacquainting myself with Mr. Snow Shovel when it snows. Hey Andy put the plow on John for me and you can do some plowing and make some change after our drive is plowed.
I see our friend’s Kevin & Ruth, & Dennis & Donna, & Al &Kelly will all be leaving for the south country soon. We will be thinking of you sitting where it’s nice and warm. I have to make a prescription run to the drug store and fill the truck with diesel, be safe out there. Sam & Donna..
