Getting back into the swing of things

Today Maggie is really getting back into the swing of things, she picked a broom and swept the front porch ! I don't know why there are three other people here, each one of us quite capable of doing the job. I guess she just wants to feel more normal now that she is feeling better.
A couple of weeks ago our neighbors big tree fell down just missing a corner of our house, I was sitting in the kitchen when we heard a loud  crash like a earthquake I looked out the window and saw a bunch of leaves blowing past our window HORIZONTALLY ! I ran outside there it was lying on the ground and it took down half of a tree on our lawn. The neighbors who own the house live in  New York and are here for a week every couple of months . The neighborhood busybody come out to see what happened, and said he would take care of contacting the people, fine with me. Anyway The tree removal people came they looked at our tree and recommended it be taken down also because of the damage , which we did. It took them three days ! the two large ,old, trees were a lot of work ! My point of this story is , we didn't even get a call,email, nothing from the neighbors !  They are not the most friendly to begin with, but I would have thought some kind of correspondence , just of concern for our well being .  How can people not have any concern ,or just plain courtesy.
The weather has been hot and sticky , so we won't be doing much outside past noon.
 Till next time.......................M&M

Passwords for dummies

Hi every body, I hope you have been able to come to my blog, I haven't . How frustrating is it ? I have spent the last 45 minutes trying to get in ! Don't tell me I'm the only one, I know you all have done this to. I only have two email accounts ,three with Mags, my primary is with yahoo, and of coarse the Gmail, and Mags Gmail. Of coarse there are assorted passwords, there in lye's the problem . Side note I'm sitting here writing , with a little dribble out of the corner of my mouth, you know when you want to  have a drink or something.I made Mag a juice drink this morning, blueberry's, raspberry's, strawberry's,banana, and papaya, gave it to her, she drank it up no problem,had a little left over, gave myself some in a juice glass. Started trying to write the blog, I didn't think it was that long , but, as I lifted the glass to my lips anticipating that sweet , cool , burst of fruit......... NOTHING, the liquid sat in the bottom of the glass like it was painted on, no movement ! I made it thick but that thick ?Showed Mag she laughed
so I got a spoon ate it like custard, I like to feel the little seeds bursting as I chew my juice.
Now back to get my password; is it me or does anyone else have problems copying the inane words they want you to put into the box , I can't imagine how hard it must be if you dyslexic, which after this I might be along with my oldtimers.
Mag is feeling better every day, as a mater of fact it's amazing what 70% off at Cold Water Creek will do to get a woman out of bed!
I'm sitting here watching Lulu eating Figs off our tree, buts that's another story.........

Were Back

Here's the latest news from Maggie & Me I don't know were to start, I think I'll go with the latest and go back into the last 6 months a little at a time. When we got home from Peru Mag had her scans and blood work and they all came back negative for all the cancer, she is free from  that worry.
But it seems there was another problem there was a bulge in her abdomen the Doc said it was a hernia from her first operation, and that it would have to be repaired..............
Into the hospital we went ,along with our good friends Raul & Mirtha, Iris & Cholo, early one morning.
Well as the renown thinker of our time said   " Golly,and Shazam" The Doctors fond Two hernias one on each side, they repaired both, the biggest with a screen ,the other sewn from the inside. The Doc's told us it would be very painful well for once he was right, she has had a lot of pain. Ten small holes and two larger , she is truly a holey person. It's been two weeks and she is up and about, still a lot of pain . Well till next time...........
