That time of year...



And another view.

On dying on the road

Thanks to those of you who kindly volunteered to go along to the eye doctor today given Olla's expressed desire to die while driving in the countryside. Wait, only one person volunteered (thanks, Sheila) and several professed no interest.

I have to admit I thought over what I would do if Olla became ill in the car. I have always wondered that, ever since I spent ten years driving Grandpa around to places convinced that he was about to die at any moment.

Eye doctor trip

Picked up Aunt Olla at the Fertile Hilton about 12:45 and headed to Ada to the eye doctor. I wheeled her out to the pickup in a wheelchair--walking a long ways after a meal is still hard on her after the heart attack.
