Looking forward to this week as for the first time in a long time not a lot on the agenda except a to do list with forty-six items on it.
Last week was kind of a blur. Monday night the caregiver had a belated birthday party for me and we watched JOYFUL NOISE. I like the movie a lot. Tuesday was lunch with childhood friend Dave and he told me a story that I will share with you at the end of my updates. Wednesday my good relatives Don & Belva drove all the way up from Albany, Oregon and bought me lunch for my birthday. They are such a fun a positive couple that time goes really fast when Mom and I are with them. Thursday was the Blazer Draft Party. I really enjoyed it. Cheap Eats and a lot of people with a common interest. The Trailblazers had the number six and number eleven pick in the first round. I think they blew the sixth pick. They took a point guard from Weber State, Damian Lilliard when they should picked forward Harrison Barnes. Time will tell who is right, me or the experts. Friday was a me day and I enjoyed the movie, People Like Us. Saturday was taking mom to lunch and fixing dinner for her and the caregiver.
Tomorrow lunch and dinner at Mom's. Monday and Tuesday just working on the to do list other than a couple of phone calls checking on her there is no mom time scheduled. Wednesday is my day and night at Mom's. Thursday is a day at Mom's. Friday is a me day. Saturday is a Mom day. No events scheduled next week. And on the seventh week he rested.
The story about Dave is one how little things can impact your life. We were living in Bellflower, California and my sister was living in Woodland Hills. Dave was visiting us in Bellflower. His last day there he wanted to go up and see my sister who used to baby sit him. They were going to meet at a New Age Book Store, then he was going on to San Francisco. Because he was leaving after seeing my sister I didn't go with him and he took the bus. At the bus stop he met a Moonie. Dave was going to Montana U and majoring in Sociology. He was wondering to what to write his master thesis on. When he met the Moonie he made the decision to write the thesis on religious cults. He first joined the Moonies. He then joined the UFO group, the one where they all committed suicide (after he left the group). Then is was several other cults. He wrote his thesis and it was published in PSYCHOLOGY TODAY. Due the publication of his article he was given a grant to go to Ireland and study under at the time the leading religious cult expert. While in Ireland he met his wife. See where that chance meeting led?
Now it is your turn comment away then update away.
