Had another visit with Dad this morning and it was a good one.
He had just gotten up when I got there so when the caregiver
asked if I could take a look at his shower seat and fix it, we
did. Ended up a suction cup on one end came out and see couldn’t
get it back on. He’s ready for a shower now.
That done we talked of past jobs and some of the cars we had
and what we liked about them. I was surprised to learn he worked
at the same flour mill that I did, just a few decades apart. He
left because he found a better job and I left after the mill
blew up. I was taking a day off when the mill blew but it was
We talked of him driving truck for one oil company and my
building depots at other. And we talked of all the cars I
bought and sold during my younger years. It didn’t seem long but
when I looked up a couple of hours had gone by and we both had big
smiles on our faces.
He asked when we were leaving on vacation and where we’d be
heading this time. Since our youngest and his family moved to
Oklahoma we’ll swing by there and see where end up. Who knows?
After all the compass points in all directions. An added bonus
is it started raining so I can’t mow the yard and we have no
idea what’s on the agenda.
I do know we’ll stop someplace so I can grab a cheeseburger and
the wife can have her healthier alternative. So enjoy our first
Monday of the week as I know we will. Now I need some coffee
before I have coffee with my cheeseburger.
