I got an email from Ann (sent to a list). It was very nicely done. She said that she and Charlie and Amy (her son and daughter-in-law) were in to see Ron about 4 yesterday and said their goodbyes and by the time she got home there was a message from the hospital that he had died. Her email sounds as if she is at peace. I hope so.  She also reiterated that in keeping with his wishes, there will be no service of any kind.


One thing I meant to do before it got hot was make a batch of breakfast egg and sausage muffins. I haven't had any in a long time. They require heating up the oven and I wish I had remembered. Now it's warm but WTF, I got the ingredients at the store and may do it anyway. I think I'll crumble cook the sausage today and do the rest tomorrow.


The replacement coffee maker arrived. I need to set it up, take the old one to the dumpster, and put away the other groceries. By the time I get that done, it will be time for the lighting people. And when they are done, it will be time for the game.  One thing after another. It's a damn good thing I don't have a day job. I don't know how I'd squeeze it in.


Oh and I was forced into a lane at the pool that was faster than my usual so I was faster than my usual. A good 7 minutes under my normal mile time.


And mine and my doctor's theory about cutting back on the aspirin and vitamin D might help curtail and heal the blood bruises on my hands and arms?  Bunk. I got two one hand while waking around the grocery store and a giant one on my arm from something else I don't remember. Blech.

I don't want to be harsh, but i hope she doesn't try to adopt you as her new buddy now that he's gone.

Oh I've already started the harsh. New mantra... not my monkey, not my circus. And the door stays locked when I am home.

I'm still making the egg & sausage muffins from when you first posted the recipe last year....and Pete's still loving them. When we get low on them, he always reminds me so I can make more.

As weird as it may sound, given that I am on the other side of the country from you and only know Ann & Ron via you - please tell Ann that I am very sorry for her loss.

I feel the same way, but I suspect even if it sounds perfectly normal to us, it will indeed sound weird to Ann. She and Ron have been a part of your "cast of characters" for as long as I've known you, Susan, but they may have been blissfully unaware of this!

Anyway, I'm sorry that you've lost a friendly neighbor, as well.

One thing after another. It's a damn good thing I don't have a day job. I don't know how I'd squeeze it in.

I remember saying one day, not long after I retired, "I don't understand how I ever managed to have both a job and a life."

I cannot imagine how I did it.
