Jerry blew most of the snow out of the driveway with the leaf blower already. He is recuperating well from the sinus surgery and after this week when he returns to the ENT the last of the packing can be removed from his nose and perhaps he will be able once again to blow it. Relief is expected from recurrent sinus infections which he endured too much of the last year. That's another thing, we stayed home and hopefully now will have most of our medical appointments out of the way. As our late neighbor Frank said years back, "good thing we are retired because we can go to all these doctor's appointments." Still we are blessed that we have outstanding medical care here from Mayo where we live, many people do not enjoy that luxury.
I want to share this Valentine's poem that I found in 2011 and have updated to 2016 marking our years together, and our lifestyle.
"Reserved Seating for Valentine's Day"
It's all been said, It's all been done;
Forty eight + years of chocolates, flowers or "I forgots"
Find us seated in comfy recliners, feet up.
Our eyes scan commercials that portend chocolate diamonds and open heart pendants
Are the only perfect gifts to portray unending love.
When really it comes down to the comfy recliners
And we who remain happily seated there
Over the years.
