OK, Now it is Tax Day
April 15, 2016

My Fall flowers making a great showing in the Spring.

Yesterday and today I was using the wrong dates on invoices and for that reason, I thought yesterday, Thursday, was Tax Day.  Getting old has some advantages, but they are few and far between.

This morning I was slow moving and didn't get to the office until about 10:30.  My plan had been to go to lunch with Mom, my sister, my brother and his wife.  Just as I was about to go, Ron had a job he had to go on and said it was one of those that could take a few minutes or a few hours.  So I didn't get to go to lunch.

While he was gone, I did a little cleaning.  Then I stayed busy with customers.  It was busier than most Fridays.  He came back for a little while before he had to leave for a job at the island.  Since I had expected to go out to lunch, I had not brought a lunch, so just before he left I went to pick up some lunch and then stayed busy for the first couple of hours he was gone.
Mom, my sister-in-law, my sister, me, Ron, and my brother.
As I was leaving up the office, I had just set the alarm and locked the door when Ron drove up.  I headed home and shortly after I got there Ron called to see if I wanted me meet Mom, Debbie, Gordon, and his wife, for supper at Pepe's.  It had been late when I had lunch, so I wasn't very hungry, but I was glad to see them.  My brother Gordon and his wife were only here for a few hours.

Supper was an enjoyable time and my sister-in-law wore the Cochlear mini mic and I was able to hear her.  There is a problem when I use it, in that it brings down the volume of all other voices, so my sister sitting beside me was hard to hear.

Once I got home, I worked in the kitchen for a while and read some before talking to our daughter-in-law in New Mexico.  She had spoken to a group at a church in Albuquerque, and I was eager to hear how it had gone so I waited up for her call.  It sounds like it was very well received.  I am sure it was harder than usual to do with the pain in her leg, but she managed.
