Oh, By The Way, I'm Having a Hip Replaced Tomorrow

I am posting pictures of Monday evening's drum and bugle corps contest in Pasco. The Blue Knights, who won, are on the top, there is one shot of the Santa Clara Vanguard Cadets (who were quite good and won the lower class part of the show), and the Troopers are at the bottom. Still photos don't do it justice, since the corps are very seldom still.
A quick note on the weather today...the official high temperature was 84 degrees, above normal for the first time in 1,274,403 years, while it reached 88 degrees downtown. Tomorrow we will be in the low to mid 90s, and the mid to upper 90s on Friday...YES! The weekend won't be AS hot, but still nice and warm, so summer is finally here. Kay and I were driving home from the tennis club this evening, after a very unspirited practice session, Kay's brother John called to let her know that he had appointed Kay to make life decisions for him, and that tomorrow he was going in for hip replacement surgery. His doctor said that he had a pretty good hip for an 80 year old, but the problem is that he is only 47! We are expecting a call tomorrow to update us on his condition. Kay has already hinted that her inclination is to have the machines turned off. Oh the love of a sister and brother!
Note: I noticed today that I have 33 followers. I started this blog almost a year ago, and never dreamed that anyone would ever read it! Thank you for validating my inept life!

  1. Tell Kay that Davids thinks he needs to make those decisions for my parents. He says he is the only person in our family who could make a rational choice! :) Hope hip surgery goes well for her brother!!
