 great hope is to laugh as much as I cry;
to get my work done and try to love some-
body and have the courage to accept the 
love in return.

The Gardener

Has help this morning

 They are pulling up all the flowers
 By the truck load and out the gate to the church compost
where all the main garden work starts.They care for acres
and acres of landscaping. 
The little tree that said I can. (come back or I will)
One little green leaf has appeared. 

I went to a new dentist this morning  got my teeth cleaned
and a check up. Need a new crown, should be solid gold
they want so much money. but (Will it make me feel like a Queen?) 
No! more like a poor subject of the Queen.

We went to the board of Director's.
(You know you just can't fight City Hall)

Winifred was right the pool was a salt pool but the bacteria 
got to high, they added chlorine but so many use the pool.
Not just us or the the people that live here--guest and other
aquatic classes  use the pool, it didn't work to kill all 
bacteria. So the health dept. said lower the temperature.
Said our class is the only one to complain. 

Just shut the door then!!!

Hi All This is

(Normal) checking in
Went for a swim this morning in our not
so heated pool. They have dropped the temperature and
opened some of the sliding doors. That cool wind was
to much blowing in. They put wood stoppers so they can
not be closed. Hay we are old people and hurt all over most
of the time.

 I think we will have  to do our aerobic exercise
in the hot tub with The Bennie
 I have been working out in the gym 20 min on treadmill
 15 on the bike, may have to skip the pool this winter.
 We have been told that the pool temperature will not 
be higher------ now or this winter.   What a downer!
