There is an old saying that bad luck happens in lots of three. Yesterday seemed to be a fine example of that.
To start with Leon placed his wallet, garage door opener and cell phone on top of his pick-up while he went to do something else. He forgot about their location and took off...about 1/4 mile down the road he saw some things fly off...and realized what had happened. He recovered all items...some in bad condition. The phone and garage door opener beyond repair...so both to be replaced.
After this he came in and settled down in his big easy chair..turned on the TV...nothing...saw the red light in front...got out the book of instructions...the lamp had gone out...these are not cheap.
Had to put our old cat down...she was 18 years old and was displaying many of the traits of an old cat...could deal with all of them but the wetting in places other than her litter box...during the day she slept most of the time...but at night she would roam and do her dirty deeds...her personality had changed too - not a sweet loving cat she had once been - but most time (when awake during the day) she hollered in a nerve grating voice....needless to say Leon had to take her to the vet...I could not do it...it hurt him too - but not as much as it did me......I cried and cried....yet I knew this was best. We still have the other two cats to love and pet.
Today is a new day - sun is shining - God is still in control and taking care of us. His blessings continue to come our way.
On the bright side - got Leon a new cell phone...not as good as the one he had...but it will have to do until we can sign a new contract. As for the garage door opener will check into getting a replacement for that one. We took the old lamp out of the TV - took it to the repair shop - getting a new one ordered...should be in next week. We have the small TV ...so Leon still has a remote to hold in his hand when he is in his chair.
Have a great weekend...we will!
