Terry and I played some cribbage last night. During our first game I was (well) ahead the entire game until she swept past me dramatically at the very end. The second game went back and forth, though I was leading at the end and only needing 9 points to win. With 8 points in my hand (and counting first since it was her crib) all I needed was to peg 1 measly point during the game. Guess what (didn't) happen.... lol
I was up early this morning, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 5:00.
So I ambled up for an early morning soak, and had a lovely discussion with Art and Tamara about historical fiction books, history programs on PBS, and history in general.
When I got too warm (and that was in the Lower Apple!) I fixed that by swimming some laps in the cooler swimming pool. Not as many laps as I hoped (or would have liked!) but "some are better than none", right?
We keep adjusting ways to deal with Neil - it's definitely a learning process - and today we figured out a way to delete one sling transfer from the morning routine... which will work as long as he continues to cooperate by pulling himself up for a few seconds with the bathroom bar.
