OCT28 2016

EYE LOOKING GOOD-- BLANKETS IN TH HOSPITAL ARE NOT TAN, BUT WHITE--  WOW
COUPLE MORE WEEKS OF HEALING AND I CAN GO GET NEW GLASSES...
I HAVE TO COMMENT.... THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE BOUGHT GLASSES FROM WALMART INSTEAD OF THE  OPXXXXXXX WHATEVER  - AND I DON'T THINK THEY HAVE EVER BEEN RIGHT. 
 I WAS SORRY TO MIS INGRID'S BREAKFAST-- BUT HAPPILY I WAS BACK IN TIME FOR LUNCH..

THESE 4 WOMAN ARE A  CASE... THEY ARE FORTIFYING MY CONCEPT THAT THE MOST FUN I HAVE HAD IN MY LIFE HAS BEEN TIMES WHEN  I HAVE BEEN WITH A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO  WERE FOCUSED ON SOME  RELATIVELY MINDLESS CHORE AND TOOK THAT TIME TOGETHER TO  ENTERTAIN EACH OTHER WITH CREATIVE CONVERSATION   IT HAS TO BE A TIME WHEN  NO ONE ELSE IS TRYING TO ENTERTAIN YOU WITH MOVIES, OR ANY KIND OF SHOW.. NO RADIO BLARING.. TO DISTRACT YOU FROM PROVIDING YOUR OWN ENTERTAINMENT  OF MOSTLY PURE NONSENSE.....
.. THE CONCEPT WAS PURE ENOUGH IN SCOTLAND WHEN THIS GROUP TO WHICH I BELONGED-- THE PHYS SOC ( PHYSICS SOCIETY) DECIDED TO HAVE A MEETING.  THE IMPORTANT PART WAS  IT WAS TO BE HELD AT 2:00AM  AT THE TOP OF SOME HILL IN EDINBURGH.  A GRASSY HILL- A WALK UPHILL TYPE CLIMB... NO ONE BROUGHT ANYTHING BUT THEMSELVES-- NO LIQUOR- NO ARTIFICAL  ENTERTAINMENT.. ABOUT 20 PEOPLE SHOWED UP....AND WE SAT ONTHAT HILL FOR A FEW HOURS -- TALKING ABOUT NOTHING SERIOUS.. THEN WE ALL WENT HOME.

TO GO FROM THAT TO THE COLBY COLLEGE CONCEPT OF ENTERTAINMENT PROVIDED FROM A BEER KEG.  WAS A SHOCKER..

ANOTHER TIME I SPECIFICALLY REMEMBER WAS AT MY FATHER'S FUNERAL- WHEN WE HAD  50 PEOPLE COMING TO THE HOUSE.. AND TEH CATERER WAS IN AN ACCIDENT- SO WE ALL SWUNG INTO ACTION - BUYING AND PREPARING A MEAL FOR 50 PEOPLE. MOST NOTABLEY WAS NEICE  DEBBY  IN THE BATHTUB CUTTING LETTUCE INTO A BIG PLASTIC BAG, HELD UNDER THE SHOWER THEN ONTO THE CLOTHESLINE IN THE YARD WITH HOLES POKED IN THE BOTTOM  TO DRAIN...... IT IS TOO BAD MY FATHER MISSED IT... HE WOULD HAVE LOVED IT.
****
SO BACK TO THESE 4 WOMEN-- THEY ARE COOKING/PROVIDING   MEALS-- AND NOT JUST PIZZA AND CHINESE FOOD EITHER...  I HAVE SERIOUSLY SUGGESTED THEY PUT IT TOGETHER IN  AN "INGRID'S COOKBOOK" -- I TELL YOU WE HAVE HAD SOME PRETTY STRANGE THINGS-- AND SOME OF THE SALADS THAT ARE ON MY PLATE  HAVE BEEN 
MEMORABLE--- WHO REMEMBERS A SALAD????  WELL.. THESE YOU WOULD...  WHICH IS WHY I THINK THEY NEED A BOOK..  I WOULD CERTAINLY PUT IT IN THE DOGGIE BAG FOR  A FEW BUCKS...

THEIR NEXT GOAL---THEY WILL CONVERT THE LAUNDRY ROOM FROM BILOUS GREEN TO   A  LIGHT TEAL...
*****
PERSONALLY I COULD NEVER GO ON A VACATION AND SIT ON SOME BEACH WHILE SOMEONE FED ME MARGERITAS OFF A TRAY. WITH ALL THAT INACTIVITY,  I WOULD BE SLOSHED BY NOON....  THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH ASPRINS IN THE WORLD TO MAKE THAT A PLEASENT VACATION. 
PLUS  AIR TRAVEL IS POSSIBLE BUT STILL IT IS HOURS OF NO FUN AT ALL---  FROM TRYING TO PARK YOUR CAR-- TO  CROWDED SECURITY-TO WAITING ROOMS- TO WONDERING WHY WILBER AND ORVILLE EVER GOT THIS IDEA INTHE FIRST PLACE....ESPECIALLY WHEN I WAS PERFECTLY COMFORTABLE AT  HOME...
COMFORTABLE YET CHALLANGED...
*******
AIR TRAVEL-- GRACE IS UP AND AT IT  ARRIVING AT 5PM TODAY-- DONNA IS TO RETIREVE HER...  I DON'T KNOW  HER FLIGHT NUMBER .. IT IS ALWAYS FUN TO TRACK THE FLIGHT ACROSS THE ATLANTIC WITH FLIGHTTRACKER.COM...
I WILL TRY AND GET DONNA TO CALL US WHEN THEY ARE CLOSE TO THE HOUSE SO I CAN SET UP ARIOT BY THE FRONT  DOOR.
***
JASPER GOES HOME LATE TODAY-- HE IS SMILING
*********
 NOW THE VOMIT REPORT.... CHARLOTTE STARTED THE PERFORMANCE- TO BE JOINED BY HARPER... JUST SO SHE WAS NOT LEFT OUT, ARIOT JUST  GAVE US BACK A TOY-- 
I WONDER WHAT IS GOIN GON IN THE BARN????
*********
IT IS 6:23  I DON'T REMEMBER WHEN INGRID SAID BREAKFAST WOULD BE SERVED...  BUT I AM THINKING....
***
 OTHER THAN THAT.....
