Well, I spent Monday at Dad's like usual and he is now looking forward to "doing something" when I get there. We did the usuall stuff, jig saw puzzle, glueing it together (his favorite part), hanging some of his art on the wall. Well, when mom got home and I went to leave, he put on his jacket and was ready to go with me!! He thought I was taking him golfing! I said, do you WANT to go golfing? He said "ya, lets go!".

I figured he'd change his mind on the way, but he was determined and excited. We put his clubs in the trunk and went to the golf course. He drove the little golf cart vehicle (wild man) and we had a ball!!! He would hit the ball and never wanted to find it!!! He would just drive his cart to the next spot he liked and send out another ball! It was a riot! he was driving his cart onto the nice grass (I'm not a golfer, can you tell?) and I said "Dad, I don't think we are alowed to drive on this grass" and he said "we can till they stop us!" Oh my gosh, what a laugh! We had a ball. He started looking for the balls and I would just throw one out as we drove along and he was thrilled that he found it. It was a good day!

Lyn . . . are you OK sis? I haven't seen you around. I hope you'll give me an update on your health and the new place you were looking at.

Oh what a wonderful story!!! Good your mom and you had such a good time!! Yes, I do really treasure my time with dad. Other people just don't get it. I will see him tomorrow. We painted wodden horses on Monday and I plan to bring some shining clear coat to spruce them up. He spent a lot of time painting. I was surprised how long he worked at it. His horse is solid purple with green boots and a green rocker on the bottom. They were christmas ornaments I got a couple years ago (2 for a buck). I found them in the basement and new immediately dad would enjoy them.

Thanks Lyn . . . I'm so glad you enjoy your mom so much. Makes things all well with the world!! And thanks for the prayers . . . ditto for you!

Blessings!
