I picked strawberries. Luscious. I have put a whole bunch in the freezer for smoothies and such, but it seems a shame not to eat them fresh as much as possible for the short season we have them available…so we are doing our best.
I took some strawberries along with a container of chicken salad and a potato salad to my neighbor for her supper. Her husband is in the hospital awaiting five way by-pass surgery. It is not considered an emergency so he has had to wait five days for a surgery time, but they would not let him leave the hospital for those five days either. I just can’t imagine what an anxiety building exercise that must be. I don’t consider a hospital a fun place to pass the time. On the other hand, the things that modern medicine can fix now is quite amazing.
Still, I hope to avoid any kind of close relationship with medical personnel as much as I possibly can…

If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.
If turnips were watches, I’d wear one at my side.


  1. I agree about hospitals. I'd sooner die than spend time in one.
    Well, maybe not.

  2. Oh...the strawberries look favorite berry!

  3. How nice of you to take her supper. She has enough on her mind right now. You are a good neighbor.
    The waiting must be awful. Hope all goes well.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
