Dying Man’s Daily Journal – Lucky man

Feeling pretty good today. Yesterday, I had one of my longer naps, can you still call it a nap if it is almost 8 hours long? Well I do.

Had a really wonderful Easter Weekend. Family visiting, great comradary, lots of great food and participated in the cribbage tournament that was for the Championship of the World. Now how fantastic is that? Seeking that elusive championship, this year I pulled out all the spots. At one point I even sought the sympathy of my brutal opponents. Imagine me in my whiniest voice: “Had you remembered I am an orphan (parents passed when I was in my 30’s and 40’s so technically I am an  orphan). Response: NONE!!!! Try again: with whinie voice,  “I am an orphan and have lost most of my hair and don’t know where to find it.” Response: NONE, except I think playing a 24 hand against me!!!! Not being a quitter I gave it one more try.” I am an orphan who has lost his hair and doesn’t know where to find it, Plus, I have a sore big toe. (OK, I was desperate and lied about the big toe part). Response I am sure was likely another 24 hand against me. Geesh!!!!

I have said it dozens if not hundreds of times. I am such a lucky man.

Off to see the sleep specialists this morning. Hoping they can help me deal with this wonkie head.

    LOL You reminded me of fun times with family and friends. Our game is Dominoes but the same type of whining happens.

    I heard all about the tactics that went on to get the upper hand in crib. I also heard what wonderful hosts you and Vi were as well. Thanks for taking such good care of my mom and sisters for me.

    I heard you were not up early in the morning to defend the championship of the world! HA HA

    On a more serious note I hear that Shirley did some yard work at your house. Funny that I picked her and Mom up at the airport and brought them to my house for a few hours before taking them to Gloria’s for the night. I made several comments about the beautiful day, how the grass needed a good raking, and even hinted that the rake was in the shed, but Shirley didn’t take the hint or budge from her seat!!

    It’s like she didn’t even care. It just reminded her of another great story she had about the weekend! So she told that instead!

    I see I had the wrong e-mail adress on my page. Hope this one works out better for you. Love to you both. Cousin Sherry

    Hi Bill, here are mom and I at home with many wonderful memories and a few extra pounds! Vi is such a great cook and hostess. Thanks again for all the hospitality and laughs. I enjoyed every minute as did mom but of course she is here with a title she earned alone – I thought we put up a valiant effort! Thanks for the special invitation to be included in the game but I see I was out of my league. Nice try on the sympathy messages but it is hard to feel sorry for someone who is good looking, has a great sense of humor and treats us so well. We developed a few pictures to show to the family and have told many a story of the weekend there (some of them might even be true) We had a good flight back but the door of the plane would not open so we spent at least half an hour extra waiting to get off. I think the cabin pressure effected my ears as when we got to Sherry’s I could hardly hear a thing. She kept pointing to the shed and then to the front yard but again, I haven’t a clue what all that was about!
    Hoping to see you at the end of July. Until then, I will sit back and hold tight to the doubles championship of the world!
    Hugs to you and Vi from Auntie Isabel and Shirley
    Vi – I will get you the name of the vines, I have not forgotten but there is one awful storm outside so it may be a day or two before it dries up and the wind leaves!

    I hope you continue to be in good spirits–extra sleep is always good.

    *laughing* They’re much kinder than I–I’da pointed to the dictionary and told ya where to find ‘sympathy’. LOL

    Brilliant tactic though–desperate, but brilliant!

    Clearly a good time for everyone, sir. I’m glad for that–everyone needs a good time…..the more frequent the better.

    I’ll hope for a productive appointment for you–and for more naps of the replenishing kind.

    ((((((((((( Bill ))))))))))))
    Take care of you, sir!

    Great to hear you’ve had a good Easter! I hope your wonky head is soon sorted!

    Thoughts and prayers coming your way… and crossed fingers too.

    Take care you.
