Great game today between Brazil and Mexico….scoreless and about over. I know of nothing more enthusiastic than the crowd at a World Cup Soccer match. I actually find it rather frightening…too many ramped up spectators piled on top of one another.
Tyler is having a great time at Machu Picchu….it’s not every day he gets to feed a hungry llama.
“Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu were amazing… But the Inca Trail took the cake. Lugging around all of our own for 4 days brought a whole new appreciation for Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu.” Tyler Britton

The International dinner (Welsh cuisine) last night was really outstanding…we started the meal with a hearty, delicately-flavored cawl made with heavy cream and served with rolls and lots of soft butter. That was followed by baked salmon covered with a delightful leek sauce, chicken with mustard sauce, traditional meat loaf that was reminiscent of haggis (but good and with another sauce), peas and carrots, English potatoes and three kinds of dessert (all with special toppings and loaded with calories) and a great fruity drink. It was delicious and a lot of fun. I’m probably forgetting half of it due to the amount of wine that was involved.
There is a degree of uncertainty about the future of our International dinners as Joomi and Tim have been unable to hire additional help. They are going on vacation for a couple of weeks so maybe they’ll come up with something after they have time to reflect on it. We all enjoy the evenings so much we hope they can continue.
One thing we noticed last night is that I got in and out of Headrick’s car much better than any previous time when I’ve bummed a ride with them. It just shows that all those exercise classes have helped a lot with my strength and flexibility. It has been a very slow recovery, but I’ve made significant progress. I still can’t manage without a walker and may never “get there”. I just have to keep walking and moving.
Tonight is the monthly potluck supper. I guess you like them or you don’t. They usually have a pretty good turnout. I can’t really cook anything then carry it to the basement. And going through a buffet line is difficult as I can’t carry a plate and use my walker at the same time. Hazel always takes enough to cover me should I want to attend. I did once, and would actually rather stay home. I’m not hungry for one thing. Maybe that will all change in months to come, but right now, I enjoy my evenings in my apartment. I love my apartment and living here…doing only what I want to do.
Now to watch Russia and South Korea…
Thanks for tuning in…
