Dying Man’s Daily Journal

This morning I was out doing my front step sitting and saw something most Canadian’s dread. I saw a large V formation of geese flying south. Why do we “dread” seeing that? It is considered one of the first signs of the end of summer meaning winter is approaching. It almost seems complaining about the weather is like a national pass time. It is amazing though to see how when we are speaking to a tourist, especially from a warmer climate how that complaining switches to bragging. We are proud of what a tough and hardy bunch we are. Picture me strutting around chest puffed out, hitching up my pants. “You think this is cold, I remember a time when I was a kid. Had to walk a mile to and from school (it was uphill both ways). I was wading through snow up to my waist. I was bare foot and wearing nothing but my fathers pj’s. Yup, we are a hardy bunch.”
OK, now that might have been a slight exaggeration.
Yesterday, Vi ended up getting a C scan from her mid abdomin down to her toes. The vascular surgeon feels she may have lower back issues in addition to the blockages in her legs. If that is the case it will then become a matter of which issue ie dealt with first. Results expected Tuesday. Prayers please

    At least your geese go somewhere! Ours like the climate here so well, they hang out in the parks all winter, leaving a nice mess to walk and bike through!

    Best wishes to Vi…and to you!
