After Thanksgiving Day

 Well, I hope everyone had a nice and safe Thanksgiving Day.
Are you still enjoying your leftovers or maybe you went out to eat and not have to worry with the cleaning up after the large meal?


Nancy and I started on the leftover ham Friday morning with breakfast we added hash brown potatoes, a couple of eggs, gravy, biscuit and a cup of coffee to start the day.
We both agreed the Smithfield spiral cut ham was the best we have tasted.

Then Saturday was almost a repeat only this time we had and omelet with peppers, onions and ham.
That really hit the spot and needless to say we didn't want anything for lunch time. 

I watched some college basketball games on Friday and some on Saturday.
Of course, there was some short naps while leaned back in the recliner.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Thanksgiving Dinner

 Nancy and I had a quiet day for Thanksgiving just getting our dinner prepared to eat.


As you cand see, green beans, candied sweet potatoes. corn, spiral cut ham, deviled eggs and rolls.
it did take us some time baking the ham and fixing the rest of the stuff, but the taste was worth it all.

By the time we ate the food and did the clean up, then watching tv a short time we were ready for a nap.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Urologist, all is good.

 I went to the Urologist yesterday with the CD from my MRI that I had a couple of weeks ago at the Radiology Center.

The Urologist (Doctor Syed) said all looked good, but he wanted to scope my bladder to see if all is clear.
I've been having an issue with blood so; he also checked my kidneys and everything else.

He come to the conclusion that the blood was from the two kidney stones that I have, been trying to come loose. 
So, all is good on all that from the kidneys all the way out.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.

Here and There

 After spending a week with Nancy and me Mark and Sherry had to go back home.

They returned their rental car and boarded a plane and of they went.
We really enjoyed having them in for a visit and as usual the time is always too short.

Also, I had to go to the Cancer Center Friday to have blood drawn to check my platelet numbers.
They have been going up to almost normal but this time after two weeks the numbers were down 134 to 122.
I have appointments for two more times to have the blood drawn in the next five weeks before I see my Oncologist.  Unless he looks and discover that my platelets are headed the wrong way.

Tomorrow, I go to see the Urologist to see what the MRI showed if anything might be causing another problem I have.   Seems as though I'm always seeing some kind of doctor.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

A good day.

 Sherry and her husband Mark, came to visit us for a week, and we were glad that they did.

So, the other day Mark, Sherry and I went to the John Chesnut Park to see if we could see a few gators.


Boy, did we.  We saw a bunch of them, I forget the count, but it was 10 or maybe more.  

But the thing that trilled Sherry and me was we were able to feed some small birds out of our hands.

Here's a closeup of Sherry feeding one of them.

Sherry and Mark enjoying the day.

A closer look at one of the gators.

All three of us really enjoyed the day.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

That time of year

 Yes, time of year------College basketball games.
I sure enjoy the basketball games and I've got an app on my "fire stick" that gets about all of the games.


After a good breakfast of egg, sausage on a croissant, with peppers, tomato and tater dots I was ready to start the day.

I did something I have not been able to do for at least two years, I hand washed my minivan.

So, I believe I'm slowly getting better and have a little more strength.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Blood drawn and other things

 Had my blood drawn last Friday which was two weeks doing it instead of one week.
I was a little disappointed of it only going up from 130 to 134.

Its only 6 points out of the low normal range so it is still going up without medication.


I went to the Jay B, Starkey Wilderness Park this past week and that did feel good to be out again.

First thing you can't help noticing is a tree in the middle of the road.
I don't know if this tree has a special meaning or not.

They have a boardwalk going through the swampy area.

The two trees that had oranges on them have died and are dried up.
I sure miss seeing all the oranges on the trees.

To many of the orange grooves are gone, stores and shopping centers have taken their place.

This is the starting point of the Withlacoochee River that goes through Port Richey and on out into the gulf waters.

They have camping cabins plus also a tent camping area.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

More Photos

 I thought I would post a few more photos fr0m my walk-through James E Grey Preserve.


Always waiting for a handout.

With a boardwalk like this it makes walking a bit easier.

This palm tree still standing tall even though it top is gone.

Old stump looked kind of weird setting in the river.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
