Yup, again I've started my Texas Two-Step. . . sideways!! You know . . . to the right, to the right, to the right, right, right!
Old Virtigo is visiting me again. Not as bad as it has been in the past. Just enough to be inconvenient and embarrassing. Last week-end we went to Minnesota to see Dan and his wife, Tammy. There are some neat things to see where they live and we went to visit Schnell's Brewery. The grounds were beautiful and there's an old mansion on the property that some Schnell family members lived in until recently. When we went to the beer tasting room, I opted for root beer (which this family invented during the Prohibition when they couldn't brew real beer). Delish!
However, since I get off-balance and dizzy, someone had to hold on to my arm and steer me around so I wouldn't topple over. I tried to get Hubby to carry my purse, since it is so heavy, it kinda made me even more off balance. Nope. Oh well.
That evening we went to the gorgeous Morgan Creek Winery for jazz and drinks. Lots of good times. Dan took a picture of me pretending to pull a cork out of a wine bottle with my teeth (I know, how stupid acting can you get?) and sent it to sis-in-law Nina as a joke. In the meantime, Nina had texted me, asking how things were going. When I tried to text her back on my FLIP PHONE, I tried to spell out "good. . .jazz and wine".
Okay, I can't text on that phone at all, but this is what I came up with. jawy. Crap! Okay, that wasn't right but I don't have a back button to erase, so I moved over and tried to spell it again. jayx. Crap, wrong again. Finally it turned out . . . jazzamd wine. Close, but no cigar! When I talked to Nina later, I explained to her that I wasn't drunk when I tried writing that, just text-stupid. She laughed when she told me that she thought I was doing it deliberately to look like I was "likkered" up.
The important part about these two events, is that when touring a beer or wine establishment, it is NOT cool to be staggering around, holding on to someone else, or grabbing for railings to keep yourself upright.
Went to the oncologist's yesterday, and everything is going super good. It looks to me like the cancer thing is done and over. My nurse practitioner again apologized for making me take the medicine that plumps a person up. What else can I do? It has to be taken, but I sure am disgusted with it's side effects. Only 3 1/2 more years to go. Whatever.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
