Other things to do

Ive got to reinstall my eye-fy memory card for my cam on my puter!Ive seen advertized on tv where you can rent games similar to netflix with movies!Im not much of a gamer but,I used to injoy doing role playing games.B4 my divorce I was into one and all my kids used to watch me try to make the right choices as what to do!I forget the name (go figure)of that particular game but,if I have alot to chose from,I can find one I like,then buy it at a store someplace!Ive got transportation now,it just dosnt go to Scituate!Rip Kenny!The b's I think are on to :)!What a time to be a sports fan!Go bruins,celts,and sox!


Today Im just going to stop and shop in Braintree.I dont have it on my list but Ive got to remember to get some alluminum foil!I need that for my cooking needs.

today's plans

All Ive got for today is going to the "y" for my naughtillis training!Then maybe Ill scoot to wallgreens,I still need some milk!I do have to check and make sure I have value on my laundry card!

Kenny's visiting hrs

I booked a ride to get me there at 12 then a return at 1!They got me there at 11.15!My return wasnt untill 1.05!I just started mingling with all of Kenny's great family!There was like a puter monitor that dissplayed lots of pics of Kenny throu the years!I met so many people but cant remember any names,all great people!The staff at the home were great to me!I saw an old friend I played hockey with and worked with at hatherly cc!I asked "Billy,are you playing any puck?"I guess we are all getting older cause he said he's 55!He looks the same as he did when we were working together,I guess some 30 yrs ago! It was sad but,I think Kenny has that great smile on his face after seeing all the great people that came to see him off on his journey!


Today Ive got hics :)!Then Ive got trips booked to and from Kenny's visiting hours!I'm hoping all my trips workout,its just being dependent on others that makes me a little nervous!


Ive had my home visit now Im gonna go to the "y" then to hics for rec!I booked a ride to and from Kenny's visiting hrs tomorrow,Im just glad its in Cohassett!.

Kenny's visiting hours

Kenny's visiting hours are at a funeral home in Cohasset!"The ride" services Cohasset,I'm gonna go to pay my last respects!They are also having a service on Saturday but its in Scituate,"The ride"wont go to Scituate .

hics today

We had an in-service from the disabled persons protection commission!Very informative but,I have no problem anymore cause now I have nobody here to even give me mental abuse of any kind :)!


Today Ive got hics :)!I'm very impressed with the "share your love" page or group set up on fb for Kenny!He touched the heart of so many,including me,its a wonder full way to say "good bye" and to deal with his passing!


I think its great that people create a page or a group on fb about their passing!Its so comforting reading the coments left on Kenny's page from friends,family,siblings!It helps to deal with the loss :(!


Lrv's or light road vehicles!I'm reseaching them!They are very similar to a golf cart!They say they are street legal!I'm just thinking of ways to increase my independence :)!They have a fb page too but,I think the scooter moped will be the best cause it has storage space plus I can have a passenger!I couldnt take it up to Laconia for bike week thou :(!

todays plans

Ive got the "y" to go to today for my resistance training then I'm thinking bout scooting to walgreens,Im out of milk!I need milk to cool down my thought when my ulcerated esophagus acts up!Maybe Ill get some ice cream too!That works when the pain is real bad!
Kenny,exactly as I remember him with that great smile!


My ham was pretty good but,I think I cooked it a tad too long!Its things like this that make me soooo happy thou!In Scituate I never had the freedom to cook a ham!Now,in MY castle,nobodies saying "you cant"!Im just so happy :)!


I went to church this morning,Rich gave me his recommendation for a church closer actually in Holbrook!Its the same church Lisa goes to!She wants to try other churches thou.I said why don't you try beechwood,Ill give you the money it costs me to take "the ride" to Cohasset but,she started with the wear and tear on the car so I knew she wouldn't :(!
