Dad and I, and Uncle Joe, 90, and Auntie Isabel, 94, went to Alameda today to Louise Russo’s, 89, house and had lunch with Louise and her sister Carmela, 96. Everyone is so positive and bright of mind. Beautiful, sunny day and we had sandwiches in the beautiful, lush, secluded back yard. I took pictures with my cell phone – sure hope I can figure out how to get the pictures out of my cell phone and hopefully post them on Facebook and here on my blog and save them with my personal pictures. We really had a great time. Hope we can do this again.
My back has been out for a couple of days now. I was the old lady at the party! haha They gave me pillows and that helped a lot. When we got home I took one of dad’s Norco pain pills. It did not help my back, but naturally, I was nauceous and headachy. But, not too bad. Just rested this evening.
Dad and I had lunch with Uncle Joe and Auntie Isabel at Burger King. My back has been really acting up today when getting up and down. Otherwise, good. Took a valium and went to the Jacuzzi. Bill Mack brought over pasta, chicken breast, and bananas. Got a lot of running around done this afternoon. Fast, fun, day.
Dad and Bill Mack are going to exercise this morning and then to their last Wednesday of the month exercise class lunch. I’ve got LOTS of errands to run around and do this morning. This afternoon we are taking dad to Kaiser to see if his eyes are ready to get his cataracts removed. He sure hopes so!
Dad and I went to the Memorial Day BBQ at the clubhouse today. Yanni did the catering and we had music and karaoke. They sat a new gal who has recently retired and just moved into the park about three months ago named Sheila. Nice gal.
They originally were not going to have the BBQ and at the last minute they decided to try and had a great turnout with 113 people. Lots of fun. Oh Yeah! I won one of the 17 envelopes from the raffle – $10!
Skipper and Cheri had to go back home today. Dad and I took Luigi to PetSmart at Bayfair to get groomed by Ethan. He does such a wonderful job and Luigi is always so happy to go there. Dad and I went to the dining table at the clubhouse. Lots of people. Lots of fun. Came home, and cleaned up and did laundry and made bacon and eggs. Nice relaxing day.
Cheri and I added dad to Facebook today. Pretty exciting. It is totally different on his Tablet, but it is really cool.
11:00pm Dad has 37 Facebook Friends!
Today we had the cousins Family Lunch at Don Jose’s in Castro Valley. There were 22 of us. Dad and I, Skipper, Cheri, Kenny, Lisa, Debbie, Deaunn, Jim, Carlotta, Al, Lyn, Uncle Joe, Auntie Isabel, Tommy, Bobby, James, Gordon, Nicholas, his wife, son Jonah, daughter Julia,
Then we went to Lucca’s Deli to pick up lots of goodies for Skipper and Cheri’s Monday BBQ in Barstow for Labor Day Monday.
Carol Mack came over tonight and we played cards, Hand and Foot. Lots of Fun! Great Day!
Dad went to exercise with Bill Mack this morning. Skipper, Cheri and I had Starbucks. Skipper, Cheri, dad and I had deli sandwiches for brunch. Cheri got dad’s Tablet set up with www.1mobile.com as his Tablet does not support Google Play Store. She also downloaded a couple of games, like Solitaire, for him. Cheri and I went shopping at Kohl’s and Catherines and picked up El Pollo Loco chicken for dinner. Spent lots of time with the computers today. Fun day.
Cheri, dad and I went to Best Buy this morning. Later dad, Cheri, Skip and I went to Dale’s Hardware. While Cheri napped, dad, Skipper and I went to Costco. Then we ate lots of good food, learned how to do new things on the computer and had a fun day.
Dad, Skipper, Cheri and I went to Uncle Joe and Auntie Isabel’s for two hours for drinks and appetizers. Then we had lunch at Denny’s in Pleasanton for two hours. Lots of fun.
