Ma & Pa on the Road Again

Yesterday we picked Brock up from Menahga. Then picked up a dishwasher motor from St. Cloud for the church. Have had 3 oil paintings on the wall at the Coffee Cup Restaurant in Becker but the northern lights one hasn't been displayed for a long time so picked that up and had lunch. Took forever. I was down to 69! (not pounds). Brought Brock to Randalls. Waited awhile as Becky had brought Sarah to the Clinic. Sarah ended up at the hospital. By then Ivan had gone to work and Missi not home yet. Found Jody and Tanner at home. Had not checked my calendar. It was Jody's birthday! Happy Birthday Jody, better late than never. Then we went to Jirik Sod. I knew it was a large operation but never dreamed they had that much equipment. Fun to see. Took pictures but can't post them. While there we learned Sarah was in surgery - appendectomy. Back to 500 Main. Wow, they are proceeding very well on their renovation and tackling the 2nd floor now. One neat thing about the house, the back porch is like a "summer kitchen of old". Has stove, double sink with attached drainboards on each side, refrigerator and microwave so can cook in there while the rest of the kitchen is torn apart. Took pictures. Time to eat so we went to the Black Stallion in Hampton. Were going to surprise Amanda but she wasn't working yesterday. By now the traffic was a bit slower going through St. Paul & Mpls. Becky called On-Star. Sarah's appendix had ruptured! Sarah knew one of the nurses as she had brought perennials for the Randalls flower beds so they were joking around. A mile at a time and we added 490 yesterday! dk

Happy belated birthday Jody!! I hadn't realized it was your birthday either. I moved the calendar we got from diane from our kitchen to our office, so i don't have the birthday's in my face every day anymore!
