I hadn?t been walking at the sports complex track until recently, and noticed the lane lines had been repain?ted. The new paint was precisely on top of the old lines. It couldn?t have been done by a human as there was nary a line that was crooked or out of place.
I?m thinking it would have been done by some computerized template or something like that.
With Tabor College?s fall athletes on campus now, the track is filled in the mornings, so I have been taking alternate walking routes.
I get to drive again next Tuesday, which will be a great thing for Nancy and me. I know she is looking forward to not having to drive me everywhere I need to go.
The doctors won?t release me to drive until Aug. 25?12 weeks since the surgery. Doctors say it?s a safety issue. A quick jerk of the wheel could cause a new tear in the rotator cuff or cause the screw to come loose?I don?t want that.
We have had a wonderful time in Los Angeles these past few days. Our entire family met in Sherman Oaks to witness David?s marriage to Sally and to celebrate Nancy?s mom?s 90th birthday a couple of months early. There?s nothing like the entire family being together.
When we weren?t eating, which was often, we spent time on the beach in Santa Monica, at the pool at David?s house or the Cameli boys drove to Compton to see where all of the rappers were from.
We always go to In-N-Out Burger. If you know the lingo, you can get your food prepared other than what is on the menu.
Kid Scoop, our new weekly feature for kids, has been a big hit so far. One eager child demonstrated how to eat cereal with one hand and do the Kid Scoop page with the other.
There are even more things to do on the website kidscoop.com. Check out the tabs for kids, teachers, parents and activity pages. You will find things to draw, videos on the subjects for the weekly pages and much more. All designed to help with vocabulary, reading and knowledge.
