I Have Been Super Busy!

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile.  Hubby has had medical issues since the first of the year and many doctor visits.  Trying to get medicine dosages correct and making sure the doctors understand the problems he is having.  We did take a couple of short trips, one in April and another in May but discovered quickly he needed a wheelchair  in the airports.  Traveling is not much fun anymore.

He is doing better at the moment and we did take a one day trip with DayTripper bus tours recently.  We got on the bus and went to Newport Beach Harbor for a 2 hour cruise around the harbor on John Wayne's yacht, the Wild Goose.  The boat was built in 1942 and started out as a US Navy minesweeper.  The cruise was fun, they served bruch and an endless supply of champagne.  Lots of money in that harbor between the big yachts and the lovely homes.   The food was great and we met some nice people.

We now have a handicap placard for the car which helps when we are out driving and running errands and doctor visits. 

Another day trip we have planned in early August is a tour of Warner Brothers Studio.  We are looking forward to that and they have large trams for us to ride around on with not much walking involved.

We are trying to get back to the Thursday morning Coronado Optimist Club meetings.  We enjoy visiting with old friends.  We will attend a Bar-B-Que party towards the end of this month and we booked a room for the night at the big Navy Lodge on North Island.  This will be our first stay at that location.

I enjoy driving the car we have now.  It is easy to drive, sits up higher and is easier to get in and out. We might drive to Fresno in late October for a get together of my high school class.  Not really a regular reunion but a nice dinner.  I haven't been able to attend the last two, so hoping we can get to this one.

I finally joined the 21st century and bought a Smartphone this week.  Learning how to use it is frustrating at times but it will get better.  Hope to get back to you with more news before long.
