We are back from the dentist where Mom had her teeth cleaned. It is a gloomy day, overcast and raining one minute, with bursts of sunshine interspersed. Breakfast got off to a bad start. Mom was just about to sit down when she said 'Uh oh.' That usually means an accident. Yuck. Kinda kills the appetite for both of us. But we got through it. The man from the ramp project, which recommends ramp styles as well as people who can build them, for disabled people comes at noon. Last night I had the new tire put on our car. It was sad, the old one didn't even have 700 miles on it.

Joyce left a note saying that Mom cried when she came to pick her up yesterday because she didn't want to leave her friends! How weird is that? I'm glad Mom has her own thing to do 2 days per week. Sometimes God just sends the right person into your life and in our case he sent Joyce. She is a treasure.
