30 years today????

Wow 30 years ago we got married and here we are still married eh? Ya 30 years 3 beautiful daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren(and 1 coming ) and 3 great son in-laws. Wendy is still as pretty as she was when I married her. I am not sure what we are up to day but I really don't feel like doing a lot right now. Bob and Kristy are on their way to Red Deer for the week end so it should be real quiet around here for a few days. Wendy is off from work for a month. She is such a sweetie. It is so nice having her around. Sure do love her. I get the feeling that she is really worried about me so just pray that God will give her peace and understanding. She is still spoiling me and thats not a bad thing. I haven't done anything today so not much to write about .
Love you all
God Bless

Thursday Afternoon

Well it's been a while since I updated this but I have been a bit under the weather and in and out of the hospital so that's the reason.
Well lets see I think it was last Saturday that I started feeling bad and it went all down hill from there. I went to church on Sunday morning and didn't feel great but it wasn't too bad but by the time I got home I was really hurting. That afternoon I got sick to my stomach and my guts really hurt. I didn't eat anything on Sunday. I felt a bit better on Monday morning and I went to A&W and ate about half a Bacon and Egger. I went home and started feeling bad again and it just got worst from there. Monday evening I was in big trouble but toughed it out until Tuesday morning. The pain just kept getting worst so about 1 pm. I think it was Wendy took me over to the hospital and then I spent about another 7 hours there. They did a CAT scan and a ultra sound and poked needles in my arm and couldn't find anything so they sent me home. I just got home and then got sick as a dog again and then went to bed and slept for a few hours. Wed. was another day of pain but it started to let up in the afternoon. I slept pretty good Wed. night and felt pretty good this morning. I had a doctors appointment today at 4:15pm. at Dr. Brownoff. This morning I had some toast and that stayed down and at noon I had a bit of Wendy's home made soup and kept that down. Tonight I had big supper and still feel good. I guess it was just a flu of some sort but who knows?
Well hopefully I am back on the mend and will feel better tomorrow. I sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. haha
Thanks for all your prayers. Don't think I could have made it without them. Think I had better start eating and see if I can gain some of the 27lbs that I lost back or at least some of it. I look pretty slim trim right now and all my clothes are a bit big on me. I even lost my stick out tummy but I hope to keep that off in the future. Guess I'll have to work on that eh?
I am heeling up pretty well from the operation so that's a good thing. Thank God for that.
Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Have a great day and may God Bless each and every one of you. Again thanks for your prayers.

Didn't sleep much last night but got up this morning feeling pretty good but here it is about 1:30 pm. and I'm getting the pains back so who knows. Lets ope that they go away but not sure that will happen. I have a doctors appointment on Thursday maybe he can figure it all out.

Sunday Afternoon

Guess it's about time I updated this eh? Well this morning I felt pretty good. Had a good nights sleep for a change so thought that I would take a chance and go to church. It was fun to see everyone but they all want to pat you on the back or give you a hug and that's not good right now. Oh well they mean well. I left shortly after the service but did get to say Hi to Steve and Ray and Shelia. It is Shelia's birthday today.

Thursday Morning. Aug.16, 2007

Well I'm up early and not sure what today will bring. Yesterday was a busy one for me. Went to breakfast, then came home and played with the computer for a while. Then drove over to the Mall and walked for about 30 minutes and then went to the allies and watched the guys bowl for about an hour or so. Then just walked around the mall again for a little while and had a hot dog and pina colada drink at the Hot dog place and watched the Seals perform. Then I came home and sat out in the sun for about an hour. I had to come in every now and then as it was getting almost to hot to stay out for a long time. Had a little more to eat and then went to visit my friends Hess and Ronnie at the Golden Hour Clock Shop. I have to call my friend Henk today and see how he is doing. He went to the hospital yesterday afternoon and had a small growth taken off his back. He said it didn't hurt but the doctor thought that he should get it removed. About 3pm. I went to Wall mart and then to Safeway and picked up some meds. that I needed. Came home and played my harmonica's for a few minutes and then cooked supper and got ready for our men's group. 7 guys showed up at 7 pm. Sure was good to see them. It's been a long time since we all got together. They met 2 weeks ago at Tims but I wasn't able to. What a great group they are. We finally ended that about 10:25 pm. What an uplifting evening it was. Just hearing them Thanking and Praising God and just telling about their answered prayer and oh yes we all seem to have our little problems but they seem small. God is sure working in these guys lives for sure. You can just feel the Love these guys have for each other and for God. Makes you want to meet again tomorrow. Ha ha
Well not sure what I am going to do today. Just took the garbage out and it is raining a bit.
Well that's my story for this morning and I'm sticking to it. Maybe the Lord will open a new new door today and I will be able to tell someone about Him and what he means to me. Hope and pray that you all have a great day. OH! yes I am feeling better every day.
Thanks for your prayers.

Monday Aug.13, 2007

So I guess it's about time I update this old blog eh? Well this morning I felt pretty good so off we went to meet with the Seniors for breakfast at A&W. It was the first time since July 9 th. I think. I got a big welcome from them all when we came in. They had 2 cards for me. It was good to see them all and tell my story about 10 times. Seniors don't remember sometimes or is it that Seniors always tell the same story over and over. Hmmmm. Well I really enjoyed being there again and chatting with them all. Come to think about it there was a couple missing(Vern & Irene and Allen & Susan and Murry & Amber). Oh well maybe they will make it next week. Sunday about 1pm. my friends Paul and Mandy stopped in to visit for about and hour. I also got a call from my friend Bob Couture from Dover Plains New York( where I lived for many years)giving me some bad news that my friend Bob Keller who I have known for about 55 years was in the hospital . Bob is about 78. Years ago him and I started a trailer park in Dover and it is still going today. In fact I have a favorite aunt Wayna that still lives there. She is in her 80's.
Well after breakfast Wendy and I came home and then we walked over to the Mall and did a bit of walking/shopping. Actually Wendy did the shopping and I walked to the bowling alleys and chatted with the guys there for about 1 1/2 hours. Then Wendy met me there and we walked home. She's kinda cute making sure I get my exercise eh? Don't know what I'd do with out her.
Last night we watched a movie(an old one Father of the Bride). We have seen it before but it was cute. Made me think of when our girls got married and how beautiful they all were on that big day. But I never cried once. No Sir not me. Sure do miss them now that they are all grown up and moved away but God has given me 3 great son in-laws to take care of them. Thank you Lord.
Well it is getting about time for supper eh? I must be getting better because I'm hungry a lot lately. Ha ha.
Well hope you all have a great day.
Ya all stop in some time ya hear.

Thursday Evening. Aug. 9,2007

Well here it is Thursday already and sometimes I feel like I'm not getting better fast enough. It frustrates me that I have to ask everyone to do things for me. Not used to that I guess. I am still having a bit of pain and have finished all my antibiotics. Guess I was hopeing to recover in a few days and that ain't happening. I have watched more TV in the past week and a half than I have all year and stayed awake for most of it. I can't believe how many times they play (Replays). They do it with sports and movies and talk show and reality show(most of them suck big time) but if you do fall asleep all you have to do is wait and hour and they will show it again sometimes on another channel or on the same channel. The sports and the Food shows seem to be the best and they don't swear on some of them. Some of the food show have a lot of swearing but then is always a good time to watch sports or So you think you can dance eh? Ha Ha.Right now I am going to do a bit of practice on the Harmonica. Don't know why as I don't have any gigs coming up soon. I am going to make a couple of copy's of some of our CD's because a few people are asking for them and I have a burner on my computer. Wendy is working and I sure do miss her not being here. She is such a sweetheart. Don't know what I'd do without her. Thanks for putting up with me Wen. Today we went over to the Misericordia Hospital and visited Bill Pendergas. He has been there for 2 days and is in hope to come home on Sat. morning. He looks good and was joking around but if you know Bill he is always joking around. Kristy and Bob are out for the evening so guess I'll play and make some noise before they get home and then try to get a early nights sleep. Haven't slept well in the past few nights. Last night I spent most of the night on the couch because I was afraid I'd wake Wendy and she needs her sleep. Just keep Bill and Phyllis in your prayers. Hopefully I am getting better but I just don't know it yet I guess. haha
Have a great day. Love you all

Aug. 7, 2007

Well I think I feel a little bit better but sometimes I'm not to sure. Just when I think I'm feeling better then I start to hurt again. Can't figure that out . Yesterday my friend Ron Campbell came over for a visit and brought me some Borsh that his wife Shirley made. That was real good. I had a few phone calls' one from my friend Vern who said I didn't sound to chipper. Forget just how he put it exactly but something like that. Funny thing is that for the last few days my voice is different. Wendy took me out to Wallmart and then to Safeway. So I did a bit of walking and I think I should do some more walking tomorrow for sure. Kristy and Bob came home this afternoon. They have been in the states for a few days with some friends. Kristy made supper(Meatloaf,mashed potatoes and pea's) that was real good but I think I ate too much(sigh).
Pastor Allen called this morning and we had a good chat. My friend Hank is going to bus down here tomorrow from St Albert and we are going to chat over some coffee. Well that's about it for today guess I'll go up and assume my position in front of that Stupid Boob Tube. Have a great day. Love you all.

Saturday Morning Aug.4, 2007

Today is not looking like a day to just sit out on the deck. It is very cloudy and a bit windy at the moment. Wendy made me a great breakfast and now here I am sitting at the computer trying to update my blog. I haven't felt like doing to much updating lately. I weighed my self this morning and found that I have lost a few pounds. This morning I weighed 170.5 lbs. I weighted about 187 before the operation 2 weeks ago. Back to being my old skinny self. Wendy says I have chicken legs. (Don't laugh Vern.) Well I'm getting tired of just sitting around but I can't seem to settle down to anything. I tried my music but that didn't work and I got bored. Then I tried blogging but quite that in a few minutes now I am back at it. Tried watching TV but that sucks. Oh well maybe I'll try reading but I'm normally not a reader. Once I get the plumbing thing working where I can control it I think things will be easier. Well if you all read Wendy's blog yesterday she gave a complete update on my situation so I won't bore you or me with that again. Hope you all have a great day.
