Saturday was an exciting day. John was busy with his weekend chore of sweeping leaves when he turned to talk to the cat while climbing up some stairs...and fell...no broken bones but many scrapes, gouges and the promise of bruising in the days ahead. He simply cannot multi-task!
We whisked him off to the hospital where he was cleaned up, x-rayed, stitched and bandaged.
What a difference it is in a PV emergency room...no waiting...immediately seen by a Doctor...and everything handled very professionally. Now he is in the care of Nurse Ratchet who decides his every movement!

We journeyed into town on a crowded bus last night...no one offering seats to the elderly this time! Our No Trump Zone group met for dinner at an Italian restaurant that has the best pasta in town...all hand made by the owners!...delicious! It was fun to share glasses of wine and learn more about our friends...very enjoyable.
Part of our group...the other four wouldn't fit!
Mexicans love our shirts!
Papa John...part of the parade?
And then it was finally time for the Mardi Gras parade...which took forever to reach us
...and....boringly.... forever to pass by...with very little of interest.
Noticing that John was weary, I suggested that we walk along with the parade participants
toward the bus. There were at least 70 people waiting for the bus...50 of them were ahead of us
and we debated whether to wait for the next bus...but...opted to board and stand in the crush!
The driver squeezed every last person into the confined aisle. A woman and her daughter
gave us their seats...over the rear wheel well!! It was a torturous, bumpy ride
over 23 sets of speed bumps in an airless...not odorless tinny old bus!
