The photos are along the way and the captions include some of my memories
|Pigeons on the roof mean a layer of pigeon manure on the floor inside|
|These photos are of the deep small pond a little past the new fenceline. The geese families seem to own it this year.|
|Zoomed views to the NW as I was trying to spot the Sterling Fire Tower where I spent the summer of 1970 watching for smoke in the area you can see in the distance.|
My trip continued on to the River Road and then north to Evergreen and back home again. The second half gets a separate blog entry when I have time.
Margo is off to Mayo today to get a checkup with the surgeon to see how the back and neck surgery is healing -- x-ray. Maybe she will get to start removing her neck collar/brace. It is not very comfortable in hot weather, but she has gotten so used to it, she may have some worries about taking it off. Three months as of today since the last surgery. Her pain is much less, mostly comes from neck aches after she does some activity. The healing process continues for about a year and then she will see how things stand. She drove the car two times now. The second was to bring our neighbor Jennie Nelson to the 77th Annual Sterling Old Settler's picnic. Jennie was the oldest woman present at 98. She enjoyed it very much. Margo loaned her a wheel chair so she didn't have to walk around so much on her own, but normally Jennie walks with a cane.
