A new week almost gone

The big "Columbia Cup Hydro Races" are over and the OBoyOberto won for the 2nd year in a row. We watched the time trials and practice runs and the Dash for Cash plus the Air Show Practice runs across the river on the Pasco side. It was great, since it was Friday and no one was there. Lots of space and no charge. Charlie got some pictures on her phone for me to use since I hadn't thought to take the camera. It was a great 3 or 4 hours in the not too sweltering heat. 

Our temps are running in the low 100's for the last month now. Hope it turns to fall real soon.  Fall and Spring are my favorite times of the year. I enjoy Winter here in the Tri-Cities because we don't have extreme snow but we do get some pretty cold temps. 

I've done the Dexa scan, finished the PFT testing, and the Lasik exam is next week. That should take care of tests for this year.  I got tired of the VA cancelling my cataract surgery on me and then during the 4th pre op physical telling me that they won't clear me for the surgery without a Cardiac Specialist release. They never asked for that a year ago when I started but now they want one. So, I just got a referral from the civilian doctor for lasik surgery and that pre-op exam is next Monday. Don't know yet when the actual procedure will be but it's not as much of a hassle as working with the VA. And that's pretty sad since I served 20 years in the Navy and can't get half what I need from them now. Oh well, that's life working with government programs.

My Grand daughter and her daughter are moving back here to the Tri-Cities next weekend also. I am so looking forward to have my Olivia around more often.  I haven't had any new pictures of her in a couple of years but I'll make up for it soon.  She likes to do photo shoots. Here's a couple from last years shoot in Grand Junction. And I can't remember which kits I used the day I made these pages. Now I'm putting it in the picture when I make the scrapbook page since I'm loosing memory.
Olivia and her Mom in Grand Junction, Colorado

Another one of the two lovely ladies.

I wish I could remember the designers names and kits. If anyone recognizes their work please let me know. I'll be happy to give you a shout out here!

Darling Olivia when I put her in the bath tub with her stuffed toys to get her out of my way for cleaning.

This was such a great shoot. Bridgit got some really good pictures.

Some beautiful kits for Autumn, but I can't remember the names.

I'm going to do a little more organizing on my computer. and I have to clean up the corner of my bedroom where I sprayed for ants last evening. They were all over my end table by my bed. I set a drink of soda on the end table and an hour later it was covered with itty bitty ants and they made their way to my bed so I ripped it apart and slept in the recliner for awhile. Not much sleeping from 11pm to 2am, just moving around in the living room from recliner to couch and still not getting to sleep. So I just went to my bed and slept on the bottom of the ants there. now I've got to get that room put back together.

Have a Blessed Day!
