Off to the Hot Valley

The alarm went off at 5AM and we are out of here by 6:30AM. Mom is waiting to begin today's adventure! We are going to visit my dad's crypt, change the silk flowers and clean her brother's plaque. It is about a two-hour drive to the cemetery and it is going to be HOT out in the central valley today.

There is an Indian casino about 40-minutes to the east, through the Sierra Foothills. I am bringing my oxygen with me as well as a mask! My mom is going to be in heaven. That woman loves casinos and has not been in one for a year. I'll bet she didn't sleep well last night. Too excited.

Well, the caveman didn't show up at the rehab class yesterday. I was rather relived. The workout was great but I had to kick up the oxygen to 3 liters. Not a good sign. We will see how I do today. At the Irish fiddling rehearsal last evening, we are preparing for a performance in two weeks. The strong guitarist will not be there - vacation - so a new member has to take his spot. He is not a strong musician so we are just trying to have him feel comfortable with the music. Should be interesting.

Here we go! Maybe my lucky husband will win a jackpot! Wouldn't that be fun?
