My feet still burn today.
l did get over to Boyz Club to let them know Dan’s knee is in bad shape. John A. volunteered to loan us crutches and a cane. Jerry L. offered a special ice pack that can wrap around the leg.
Came home and built the fire to keep the house warm. Dan was able to offer direction so between us it worked and is keeping us warm even tonight. The day was so nice it seemed like a spring day – the temp even got up to the high 50s.
I went to get the crutches and cane and Dan was happy to have something to help him walk around – other than me. While he practiced his guitar, I swept up leaves in front of the house. Its finally dried up enough, they could be swept. Some are still stuck to the asphalt (frozen) but now that I’ve cleared off the top layer, they should be able to thaw.
Jerry came by with a knee brace and the ice pack. What great neighbors!
Julia and Nicole have come to spend the weekend. We ended up playing Hell and had fun. Dan begged off after two rounds. He did help Nicole as she was having a tough time at first. By the end, she’d caught on and was doing well.
Tomorrow the girls are planning a trip to Columbia. Not sure if I’ll go as I really need to get some cycling in.
