DH is always sweating but I am very rarely like that. I have actually changed clothes three times today. I gave up this time I look like a marathon runner.
Oddly enough this morning we walked our 4 miles. Then I had errands and also had to pick everything up just in case it rains and high winds. It was in the 90's the humidity was high too. When we walked I had just the right clothing on The other ladies had jackets on and they were dragging a bit today. It was noon time before I was able to start the grocery shopping.
DH appointment for the cataract evaluation will be at the end of August. We are hoping it will be done but I do not have a clue if it might mess up the degeneration. He still has good vision in one eye and so the Dr. gave him a prescription. We took his other frames and were about to pay $380 for the lenses they were marking the glasses up and I realized he may have to have new lenses after the cataracts are removed. I had to say to DH stop. If you have your intraocular lens as I did we would have that paid by Medicare and those lenses will be like mine just waiting to give them to the ELKS club. The transaction is stopped till the retina specialist explains what we will do.
I did everything wrong and we paid for lenses that were only in my glasses for one month. It was expected I would not need glasses but I had to buy another pair in the price range DH was about to purchase.
On the way out DH thanked me for bringing it up.
DH went to get rid of the brush we had taken down and now we know how the big broken branch is hanging over our Neighbor's back yard. We planted the willow over 40 years ago and after it blew down in the ice storm in the back yard. The tree people could not get in to the corner after it was cut own so it began to grow all over the huge stump. It is a wet area and that is why the willow set out 7 or 8 branches and they are thin branches but extremely high they are trunks but they are about 8 inches across. In the recent wind one high branch has broken but it has not fallen. Tonight we expect high winds and we are very concerned that the branch could damage their garage, even worse their Motor home.
I did call the tree person and he said he will call today or tomorrow.
Bad timing on our part but we just noticed the broken trunk earlier this week.
We do not want the branches being over the next door neighbors fences.
The tree people will be here tomorrow to find out how much it will cost to take so many trunks down. HUGS Pat in Maine.
Thanks my friends for being there. Pat in Maine.
