Can’t believe I have turned over another month on the calendar. We have survived 4 months owning the park. Still happy we have done it and it has been a very rewarding time of our lives.
It’s beginning to feel like fall which is one of the best times to be in the La Veta area. It’s breezy and cool. We are supposed to get some rain today which I hope we do. When it rains, the water returns to our river.
I just returned from a fast trip to Springfield, MO by way of Topeka. Mary and I left last Tuesday leaving Denny in total command of the park. We met up with Gayle at Prairie Band Casino to spend the night and play the machines. Billie came up for a few hours too. We were celebrating Gayles upcoming retirement which was this last Friday. We had a fun evening with the machines and had several hours of entertainment. I was up early to get blood work done and to head to Springfield. Made it to see Mom and pickup my sister Jolene at the airport on Wednesday. We took mom to ortho doctor on Wednesday and he gave the okay for her to have a partial knee replacement on October 15. Her knee is pretty gnarly looking so hopefully it will give her some relief.
Gayle Mary and I hooked up at 10th and Gage in Topeka and we headed for Colorado by 3. We drove to Dodge City when Gayle remembered there was a casino there. We thought we better celebrate her retirement again. After eating a giant prime rib, (see photo above), we played the machines and I actually won $141.00 on the Zeus machine and actually cashed it out. That was exciting. We were back on the road by 9 Saturday morning.It was a lot of driving during the week and of course I almost fell asleep at the wheel once we hit Hwy 10 out of La Junta. Mary jumped in and finished driving into La Veta. Denny was happy to see us all. We are back to normal again today. Mary working at consignment store. Gayle is getting acclimated and Denny is out painting. He started the morning cleaning up all the trash out of the dumpster because the bears knocked the whole thing over last night. It’s made out of steel and is very heavy so they were very determined. The bears are foraging so it will probably happen some more.
Had my physical while in Topeka. I’ve had some weird spells, (when haven’t I had weird spells) and he was attributing to possibley some hormone issues. So…I’m trying something new and he thinks I’ll feel a lot better. We shall see.
Continued prayers for Juli. She has finished her last round of chemo and will not do it again for awhile but she will continue to get her nutrition treatments and her and Judy will continue to stay in Sarasota. She’s struggling with the lymphedema in her legs right now and has a therapist working with her on that and hopefully it will ease up soon. She’s very remarkable and is still fighting her cancer with all of her might and prayers.
