Yesterday Brendon and I loaded up and drove over to Brandon's on the Atlantic side of the state. Two hours and 15 minutes to go 90 miles. It's called DISNEY traffic. There was a pretty horrific wreck on I-4 around the Disney exits, but it was west bound and I was east bound, so it didn't slow me up. There was considerable traffic though even after I got off of I-4. I only have to take it for 22 miles, but it took an hour. It was good to see the kids, grandkid and doggie.
Tonight Brandon and I are going to see Mannheim Steamroller live at the King Center here in Melbourne. They are one of my favorites and Terry would always buy me their new Christmas album every year. Their music is timeless and much more than the traditional holiday tunes. They make it magical. I'm looking forward to it tonight.
Tomorrow Brendon and I are leaving and heading to Virginia to spend Thanksgiving with Jocelyn and her family at her in-law's house in Chesapeake. Tom and Sharon are good friends and it will be a fun time. Since I don't plan on going to Indiana in the spring as usual (no graduations this year), I wasn't sure when I would see them again. We are driving the car this time as the weather in Virginia this time of year can be kind of iffy. And I can't park my motorhome at Tom and Sharon's. They have a large enough house; there will be room for Brendon and I.
I have been busy the last couple weeks. I hired the guy (the wrong guy it turns out) to do some work around the house. He got some stuff done satisfactorily, but he really messed up on some things. My new full view storm doors were not installed completely and there is no trim around them. He just left one inch gaps all around and air was getting in/out. I friend helped me seal them up to keep out the weather and I am going to try and find someone to help get them functional. I don't want the guy that did it back in my house. I'm hoping to get that taken care of when I get back.
Brendon has to see a specialist when we get back. His liver enzymes are high and getting higher with every blood test. High liver enzymes are the bane (one of them) of the Scottish Terrier breed and not always troublesome, but when they appear suddenly and continue an upward trend, they need to be investigated. He doesn't show any signs or symptoms of anything more sinister, so I am hoping nothing is seriously amiss. He continues to be my rock.
Till next time. . .
