Yesterday, early morning, the clouds rolled in and temperatures took a nice nose dive. It was actually 72 degrees in the early morning hours.
The afternoon temperature peaked at 105; that was before the rain. Yes, we had a nice gentle rain for 45 minutes, and a beautiful double rainbow appeared. Sorry, no pictures. We went into town to meet up with some friends to have dinner, they were returning home to Texas in their RV from their family visit to Wisconsin. We had a great dinner and visit at the local Indian Casino.
This morning, I went in for a follow up with my Orthopedic Surgeon on my hip pain. He wanted to see how things were going after weeks of physical therapy. The end result, a nice big needle in the really bad hip and another needle in a couple of weeks for the other hip. I was totally surprised on how painless the procedure was. The doctor used a sonogram machine and one really big Ass needle; yes I said the word Ass. Approximately 6 minutes later, my throbbing pain was gone. The doctor stated “by tomorrow you won’t feel anything”. I can’t wait!!!! As for the lower back, we will continue therapy at the gym.
In conclusion, our fires are contained. Prayers are being sent to those families who lost their homes, farms and one dear family who lost a loved one in the fire. The fire closest to our home was like walking through hell. It was 100 feet tall, burning through fields, forest, homes, farms, cars and gas tanks. The fire burned fast and furious, everything now looks terribly devastated, black, dried out, and dead.
I share with you a new life, a new bloom of my orchid. It’s something alive and not devastated. God Bless Oklahoma,
