Ed & Marilyn 'The Happy Wanderers' travel blog


I was up by 5:00 this morning. I quietly closed the bedroom door to allow my sweet little gnome to continue her peaceful slumber. I started the coffee and then prepared the slab of baby back ribs for the grill later.

I had peeked at my schedule for the day and discovered that both of us had an appointment at the Doctor's office in Palmyra.

I had been thinking that the appointment was for tomorrow so I looked at that schedule and, sure enough, I had it scheduled for that day also. Which day were we supposed to see the doctor? I wasn't sure so I had to call the doctor's office at 8:00 to find out which day was correct and which day was my mistake.

Today was the day so we completed our normal chores and then took a shower before getting dressed and driving off to see the Doc.

Marilyn & I were both quite pleased to hear the news that we are in very good shape. I did mention some pain I have been experiencing in my left hip when I walk any distance over a quarter of a mile. Since I want to hike trails as long as five miles or so I will have an X-Ray tomorrow and see if the problem can be solved.

We did some shopping before returning home but I had those ribs on the smoker/grill shortly after we arrived back at the house.

It was about 5:30 when we finally settled down to enjoy the BBQ ribs.

It has been another fine day today. We were quite busy but enjoyed this day and the relaxation of the afternoon. Life is Good!
