Ed & Marilyn 'The Happy Wanderers' travel blog

Yesterday, Marilyn discovered that her right knee was swollen and extremely sore. In fact by evening time she could barely walk at all. We used ice packs and pain meds but today she is still hurting. She wants to wait one more day before going to the doctor.

Also, yesterday evening, I discovered a “missed call” on my cell phone. I nearly blocked the number but thought the number sounded familiar so I called back. My cousin Mary answered the phone and we had a nice conversation. It ended with plans for three of my cousins, Mary, Joyce, and Cathy, planning to come to Hannibal to meet us for brunch at a local restaurant.

Joyce and her daughter Beth were on the way to their home in southern Missouri and wanted to visit us along the way. Mary, along with Cathy and her husband, Darrel, drove in a separate car and we had a complete group of seven of us gathered together. There were lots of hugs as we all greeted one another and again before we said goodbye, as we have all been close for as long as we were old enough to know one another. It was so nice to have this time to be together with people who are so loved.

Marilyn sat resting her knee while I worked on my next book project. I completed two more chapters before it was time to fix dinner. My dear wife is working me like a borrowed mule. LOL

Now I’ll finish this journal entry and then fix some ice cream with strawberries.

Life is Good!
