To all of you in the United States, I wish a very happy Thanksgiving Day. I'm sure we all can find something to be thankful for today, even though it sure isn't going to be like past Thanksgivings.
I guess I can be thankful that I'm still around. I had an echocardiogram yesterday and have been furnished with the results, but will see my cardiologist on Monday for a full interpretation of those results. I wouldn't be surprised if I have to wear some kind of device in the future, but in the report the technician recommended another type of test. I don't think I'm going to do any further testing - they can have you running in circles, especially at my age, and I'm not buying it!
Jeannie and Donald are having a big Thanksgiving dinner today. I think Donald's mother is coming, and I am considering walking over to their house a bit later. I don't eat much and really don't enjoy going anywhere, especially with Rocky. They have a feisty little puppy, Tito, who keeps after Rocky to wrestle, chase, and play fight. It makes me nervous.
Rocky has become a mostly good dog lately, although he has to let the devilishness out sometimes. I feel so bad for him having an owner like me - he should be playing, running, chasing, and enjoying life with someone younger.
While not completely healed, my wrist is so much better, and I'm thankful for that. I try to use my left hand as much as I need to, and am doing pretty well although there are limits.
I bought a new computer (although I'm using my old one to type this blog entry). Having used a Mac for a number of years, I decided to switch to a Windows-based computer. I don't know if I made a mistake or not as I really didn't want to face such a learning curve at this stage of my life. The reason I didn't stick with the Mac is because it seemed like they were making some drastic changes (they call them "improvements") and I just want a computer to do basic functions, mainly word processing. Of course you can't find simple and logical anything these days. And if something isn't constantly being updated and given a new look, then it's not going to survive.
I'm chuckling to myself because I realize I sound like my dear Grandpa. As I've grown older I now realize how right he usually was. I don't think he ever truly trusted the government, and he would be horrified if he was around today. I have enough of his genes to understand him. And my dad was the same way, so I come by it honestly.
All in all, life has been pretty good to me and I am truly thankful.
