So far retirement has had its ups and downs...mostly ups. The first week Leon was home we had doctor appointments. I had a spot in my mouth my dentist thought was suspicious looking and sent me to an oral surgeron. This doctor took a biopsy-but it turned out benign. Then Leon had a colonoscopy - but no problems there either. Praise God for the good results.

We both know that getting older our lives will be filled with these type of medical activities. However, we would like to wait as long as we can.

Leon has been spending much of his time working in the yard with mowing, weed-eating, fertilizing, spreading bug control granules - also tilling the garden. In the midst of these jobs he has found time to do some other projects in the garage. Since we both love to fish at the pond we use the golf cart to load up all the fishing needs in the golf cart. Leon is mounting racks on top to carry the rods and reels. The tackle boxes are stored in the back part. When the urge strikes to "go fishin" we can just jump in the cart and head to the pond.

Looks like fun! Do you stock your pond? We might need to bring the girls out there sometime! Madeline just got her very first fishing pole!

Max saw Grandpa in the picture and immediately said he wants to go fishing, too.
