My swimming friend, Madelene, had company for one week and is off to see her son and grandchildren this week - she warned us all she'd be gone. And we miss her. Today I got home from the pool and there was a note in the mail from here. A nice newsy note on a card sent in the snail mail. It was a delightful find.
I'm not clear when she gets back but I'm pretty sure it's not before tomorrow so I'm going to write her a note on a card and send it to her house as soon as I finish this entry. I can play retro, too!
I stayed in the pool for an hour and a half today, doing laps and then doing class. It felt good. I can tell that my COPD is getting worse. But, it is least worse when I'm in the pool so I am enjoying the pool more than ever.
I am now on a steady course to buy a Pixel computer. If the Google Play store had free shipping, I'd have already pulled the trigger. I am almost 100% sure that there will be no new Chrome OS hardware announced at I/O next week but I'd sure feel like a dope if there were and another week should not kill me. It probably will but it shouldn't. I also want to see really how much those drugs are going to cost me. If I'm wrong and they cost the same as the Pixel computer, I might really need to be smarter about buying it. I'm now just holding off to see if I can. It's a game I'm playing with me. I'm losing.
