2019 July 29 Monday in Cutty’s, Grimes, Iowa


67° and hazy. Topped out at 82° which was a little relief. It stayed hazy again. There are various fires in the US southwest. I don’t know of that’s why we’ve been hazy lately.

The morning hazeness made the sun look like a small yellow ball in a white sky. Maybe an egg yoke lost in the white of the egg.

Just before sunset last night we received some light rain. However, just after midnight it rained hard. I was not surprised to find 3/4″ in the rain gauge.

This year we will be at Union Park UMC, 2305 E 12th, Des Moines. That is on the corner of E 12th and Guthrie, the entrance to the fellowship hall is off the parking lot at the back of the building.
We will gather at noon.
I have plastic wear, solo cups, napkins and paper plates. We will need drinks.
I’m looking forwards to seeing y’all there.

Cutty’s Cafe is still our usual morning meeting place but today there were only 6 out us.

I gave up fighting the leg pain and went to the local clinic for injections in my knees. Buy bed time I could really notice the difference. I’m not close to painfree. However, it it’s a lot more manageable now

From the clinic we made it to the senior center for lunch. I had not signed up for a meal, so I became a “walk up” and needed to go last in line. That was not a problem, there was a lot of food left over. My only concern is that there was both cabbage and broccoli today. That much vitamin K may adversely affect my blood’s clotting ability. I’ll know Thursday when I check my INR.

Then home for a rest before going to work. I was at the gate from 2-9.


God bless and g’nite

day 46/82 my last day of work in July. And due to a clerical error, I will have 6 days in a row that I don’t work in August. What will I do to fill that time?
