May Happenings

Posted May 25 2012 3:21pm


The top picture is my grandson Alex. He's the sweetest little guy! Bottom picture, of course, is Monty and me.


We took a trip to Winchester, VA last week. First we stopped at the Route 11 potato chip factory. They weren't cooking, but we did buy small and large bags of fresh chips. My favorite is dill pickle. 


We then went to the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley. I borrowed their wheelchair, and we spent about three hours at the museum. Our favorite display was the miniatures. Houses without walls filled with handmade maple furniture, curtains, dishes, chandeliers, it was amazing.


We then took a walk around the pedestrian walkway downtown Winchester. 


We stayed at a lovely place called the Long Hill B&B. The hosts were wonderful, having just come back from a 3-week trip to Portugal.


The second morning, I woke up with a blister attached to the white part of my right eye. It was about the size of my little fingernail. Creeped me out! During the day, it eventually went down. We came back home, and I went to see the eye doctor Tuesday. He said it was a cyst, which I could live with unless it started really bothering my eye. Then, they would do surgery. I have very dry eyes, and have plugs in my tear ducts because of it to help keep my eyes wet. The left plug is gone somewhere. Tuesday, I go in for my eye doctor to cauterize the tear duct so that it will be permanently closed. I'm hoping to have my right eye done also.


We had our book club meeting yesterday. The book was People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks. It is a fabulous book, and I led the discussions since I submitted the book to be read. We had a wonderful time talking, and a wonderful lunch. I just love the people in my club, and I love to listen to them. We have two new members who seem very nice.


Well, that's all for today. I hope all of my friends are doing as well as they can be doing.  Mair
