Monday in paradise

 

P1210721

Thanks to our neighbor, we have a photo of our free tree there on the R…and proof that MM will wear a suit when he has to wear one.  Our neighbor was impressed that MM even has a suit in a moho!  The neighbor is new and doesn’t know we have a cruising habit.  My outfit is old (I wore it for sure on the first blogger’s cruise), but it rides well in the closet and is ready to cruise again.  Soon.

The banquet was absolutely fabulous, and MM got up in front of the whole crowd and did a little reminiscing about our church in the days before A/C, expansions, etc.  It was great fun.  Fr. Paul acknowledged it as Dick’s birthday, but told him after church on Sunday NOT to expect a celebration like that next year!  Shucks.  It will be a big number that rolls around then.

So today’s major chore will be to get a set of hearing aids programmed.  Yes, MM has (long needed) aids, bless his heart.  He has had too many hours of noisy airplanes, beginning back in his Coast Guard days of long ago, running noisy equipment (from high school age), and doing target shooting, etc.  Noise cancelling devices have definitely improved over the years, and the new aids will help to maintain the ability still left in his old ears (according to audio dude).  I’m sure MM will use the volume control to his advantage.  Beware:  I know (wifely) sign speak!

Have yourselves a ginger peachy day, my friends.  Life is as good as you make it!

Y'all clean up pretty well - looking good in your fancy duds. Glad the party was fun. Best of luck to you both with the new hearing aids. I hope they will be quite helpful. Hugs!

You both look awesome. I've seen you both dressed up before though. You do so very nicely.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and scritches to the babies. :)

You both clean up very nicely indeed! Although I like you just fine in cruise casual attire!

a cruising habit... That has a very nice ring to that. I hope Dick's new hearing aids work beautifully for him. Just think of the possibilities when the election campains begin... He'll be able to silence all dipshidiots! Handy!!

Have yourself a mighty fine day! big hugs xoxo

HUbby's headed down that road. It's all a part of aging. I used to laugh at mom who used to say that Dad didn't have a hearing problem, it was a listening problem! LOL!

YOu two clean up right well! Whistle!
