We have enough "youth".
How about a fountain of "smart"?

It seems like that even tho we age we sometimes don't get the smart that comes with that. WISDOM seems to be elusive.

Have a great week folks.

Wisdom doesn't seem to come with age about many things, we have sure found that out recently, before and after this move. Thankful for our young son, daughter in law for all their help, keeping us out of mischief due to not knowing how "life" goes around here, different than in Calif.

Loretta, does the heat make you lose your appetite? I notice I'm thirstier than ever in my whole life, but don't have a "taste" for certain foods that I used to love, especially salmon, can't stand the thought of it right now.

I had yellow squash with eggs today, iced water, BUT, later on, had that piece of chocolate meringue pie we brought home from Babe's last night.

Lunch was half a ham sandwich on one slice sourdough bread. Iced coffee

Dinner will be whatever we feel up to eating after son's test is over with tonight. Not sure yet, but guarantee a tall, iced drink of some kind.
