I went for a drive in Sharlene's new car today. :D

Image

It's a Ford Focus SE 2011 model with only 24,000 on the clock. It's a dream to drive.

I went to Agua Caliente Park again and took a bunch of photos - some of which I'll try and upload later. It was a beautiful sunny day here with temperatures well into the 70s. :D

Buying sweeties and watching a blog (number 3) of the Hobbit. Ah, a daily ration of Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield!

Del wrote:Even more importantly.. how is your health going? Are you getting around okay now? Or at least getting around better? I am only presuming that having Tony there has done you a ton of good both physically with having help and emotionally by raising your spirits. Everything is always easier when you have your best bud there.

Or has he been dragging you out into the desert in a coyote suit chasing roadrunners?


I'm heaps better--emotionally and physically, thanks to his careful care of me! Unfortunately, the shoulder doctor (when he gave me a cortisone injection in the left shoulder--only one not replaced) said "Schedule this surgery as soon as possible." I was hoping to skip that. I think that I've helped his health somewhat, and definitely raised his spirits. And he loves driving the new car!!! :lol:

Just seen this on twitter, :mrgreen: never a truer word said so to speak Re! Tom Cruise's involment in Scientology is a body of beliefs and related practices created by L. Ron Hubbard.

If Tom Cruise is a level III Thetan who can levitate, why the safety lines when filming Mission Impossible? :shock: :lol:

Sharlene, it's great to hear how well you're doing! :D Do you think there's any possibility of holding out on the surgery until Tony is able to come back? Or is that just not realistic?
