WILSON CHAMBER BREAKFAST AND DANE’S MEMORY
The Wilson Chamber of Commerce will be having its monthly Business Breakfast on Wednesday, July 6th. This month’s featured speaker will be Steve Skiles, General Manager of the Midland Hotel.
This will be a great opportunity to meet the new manager and hear his thoughts on the hotel and restaurant.
The meeting will be at Made from Scratch on Old highway 40 in Wilson. The meeting will begin at 8:00 and conclude at 9:00am. Doors open for breakfast at 7:00. We hope to see you there.
Dane is surprising me from time to time. Today he remembered that Kim visited him yesterday and precisely why she was there. He was right on the mark saying, “She was here to have me sign some papers regarding Mackenzie’s custodial account”.
Shaun told me Dane did a fine job participating at the Residents Council Meeting Tuesday. He sat at the end of the table, straight and tall, paid attention and participated in the conversation. He made a point of saying they should serve more fresh salads, “which means lots of fresh chopped vegetables on top of a bed of good lettuce!” Some one even suggested he should run for office. Well, I think they meant council office. I guess he lit up with that idea.
Everyone says he looks 10 years younger with his new haircut. Ada did a good job and it does look good. He had a shower this morning and later Denise used electrical stimulation on his leg. He’s lost most of the muscle tone in his left leg. It’s responding well. He stayed up until 2:30 waiting for therapy and finally told me he really needed to get back in bed. He doesn’t have any energy and very little staying power. He told me he felt feverish. They will check that.
It was cooler today. John Griffith came to remove the dead trees and leaning limbs in our yard. He does a good job and is a hard worker. We lost the maple tree that Mackenzie picked out as “her tree” when she was about four. She and her grandpa went to Salina to get it and a lot of it was in her lap coming home. They giggled all the way home. They had a good time and planted the tree together. We were sorry to see it die, but something got to it. It was a beautiful 30 footer, but is no more.
I loaded some casino games on Dane’s computer today. All but one loaded easily, but I need to work on one of them. It’s not performing as it should. I also bought Scrabble Complete for him, but I’m having so much fun with it that I may have to buy another for him. It’s a good version of Scrabble, which is about the only game I enjoy playing. I’m playing against Maven, the computer wizard. She is patient! I buy them from WorldStart where the price is right.
