Today I’ll brag on my man again. Robin shot his age in golf yesterday– scored an 81 on Cortez Golf Course. That means his name will appear in the Village Voice—right there in the “Ageless Wonders” column. : ) He came home a happy man!
This exciting achievement is a great way to end the week because he’s been dealing with some other much less happy things the past few days. For one thing, the deer got into his garden while we were out of town last weekend. They chomped down several of his tomato plants and ate almost all of his bell pepper plants. So this week he’s had to rig up a way to try to keep out the intruders. He went to Village Home Center and bought some tall metal stakes and some bird netting, and he spent all Thursday afternoon getting that strung up around his garden.
Before fixing his “fence,” though, he had an appointment with his hearing aid specialist. However, she couldn’t test his hearing because she discovered both of his ears were plugged with wax! She suggested he go see his doctor, so he left there and went to Mercy Express Care where the nurse practitioner flushed them and cleaned out all the wax. However, in doing that, she irritated his right canal, so she prescribed some antibiotic drops, and now he’s been treating that four times a day.
When he came in from golf, though, he grinned. “Maybe it’s because I’ve been feeling so discombobulated that I was able to play better than usual.”
Could be. : )
We hope all of you have a happy weekend.
