After Betty arrived I gave her the tour of Smiths Falls and we looked around downtown. She even bought a pair of pants at Vickie's. Betty has lost a lot of weight over the past 1 1/2 yrs so she brought me lots of clothes. She is a shadow of her former self. Saturday evening she and I sat out on the swing and chatted for a couple of hours. It was a beautiful evening.
As you know I've had trouble with my shoulder resulting from a pinched nerve. The last time I saw the doctor last week she put me on Lyrica. I started at 1/day so Sunday I started 2/day. Consequently I spent 5 1/2 hours reading and napping outside on the swing while Betty went to Ottawa to go shopping with Terri, Danica and Margie. I can't walk very far due to the drag on my arm.
Monday afternoon Betty, Gordon and I piled into our Squirt and headed for my sister, Margie's house in Ottawa. I had brought my food with me as it was my 'fish' day. It's been a long time since we've seen cousin Terri and an even longer time since we've seen her son, Ben so it was great catching up with them.

Great nephew, Jack, has grown since we last saw him at Easter. He's now walking and has 3 teeth! He's a really cute little guy.
Betty left this morning (Tuesday) heading back to the cottage so we're alone again.
I went out looking at refrigerators today. Ours works ok but it's really old and is not an energy saver. I also have a chiropractor appointment today to see if he can work more on my pinched nerve. The joys of getting old!
