May 30,2010

It is hot, in the 90's and humid. Dad (Papaw) is doing well. Even though he has more medical tests, he is excited that he does not have to have stints put in at this time. The surgeon said he was in great shape for his age. He does have some blockage, but not enough to warrant the surgery. He was greatly relieved. Mike is healing nicely and slowly becoming more active. Our green beans Dad planted in the garden were in our stir-fry and our apricots were in our pie tonight. It is exciting to be able to feed ourselves with the food we grow. Our chickens are growing and the adults are providing us with eggs. We have eaten some of our quail. Dad knows how to make them very tasty. I hope to plant some more vegetables tomorrow. Life can be exciting!

Dad is going through medical tests for his heart and probably a hernia. He likes his doctor and the nurses. He loves to joke and joke. Mike has surgery tomorrow for his hernias. It should be an easy surgery, according to his doctor. He is an interesting doctor. We like him.
Our chickens are doing well. I love watching chickens. They are very intertaining. I have 24 quail eggs incubating and 5 chicken eggs. I bought a new incubator because the other one became unreliable. My nephew-in-law is helping me build a new chicken yard and house so we can separate the chickens. Eddie, my brother-in-law, likes pure breeds. I like several types of chickens and don't care if they are pure breeds as long as they lay great eggs.
I love going to the swimming pool and working out in the pool. I am not the swimmer I used to be. Spring is here and plants are growing. Life is never boring!
