Hannah and Robert have company. The three kids that did live next door are visiting and staying the night.  They are having lots of fun.  Hannah and the girl went shopping with Aunt Helen and the boys are here doing what boys do.  One last weekend before school starts Monday.

George has been doing pretty good since he got home.  He feels better than he has in  a long time.  He goes back to the Dr the 27th.  I think they will do an Xray and see if what his lungs look like.  For now, he is better and we are glad.

George is home

and feeling much better.  He has 2 antibiotics and a steroid to take for a week or so.  For now he feels better than he has all summer.  He just could not shake that infection.  I am hoping this will take care of it.  He will go back to the dr in two weeks.

has not been feeling well all summer.  Friday night I took him to the ER.  He is in the hospital with pneumonia.  He is much improved today and may get to go home tomorrow.  He had been to the clinic several times this summer with pneumonia or other breathing problems.  I think he just has not been able to get rid of the original infection from back in May or June.  Hopefully, this time it will clear up completely.  At least right now he is much improved.

The Pond

Is clearing up, thanks to Marvin and his Marvelous Weed B Gone.

Almost no green, only reddish brown.

There is a little algae left around that willow tree on the far side.  George and Greg are hoping the will dies, but I like it.

I went to the Dr.yesterday just for a checkup.  I have thought I probably had high blood pressure, and now I have blood pressure meds.  I have to go back in two weeks to see if it is working.

I went back to work today.  We were snowed under all day.  We have an audit next week, so it will not get better until the end of next week at least.

Not much news.  It is hot again.

Kids start to school in two weeks.

Cemetery Work


We mowed the cemetery today.  George took the big mower down.  We still had to do over half of it with the push mower, but the big mower really made fast work of what he could get to.  It took us less than an hour and a half, when our best time before was about 3 or 4 hours.

Emmy thinks she did most of the work, cause she sat and in the truck and made sure no one made off with it while we mowed.

Sister ran the weed eater.  It looks pretty good now.  If it does not rain till fall, which is likely here, we will not have to mow again.  Last year it did not rain after June first.
