Church is holding on

We returned home from Springfield last Friday afternoon. While there I finished reading The World in Six Songs by Daniel J. Levitin. We made two stops on the way back. First, we stopped at Casey’s General Store just south of Joplin to get a drink and use the rest rooms. Next, we stopped at the McDonald’s over the turnpike near Vinita for a snack. When we got back to Sand Springs, we stopped by the post office and picked up our mail.

We were amazed at how well my father did in surgery. He was at the hospital early Wednesday morning for the surgery and by 11:00 am was ready to go home. It was almost like having outpatient surgery.

When we got him back to his apartment, he spent the rest of the day in bed sleeping. He was up the next morning talking like he normally does.

I went to church this morning for the 11:00 am service. It was another lay led service with Bill Ashley as the speaker. Bill spoke on Sheffield, MA during the times of the Revolution and immediately after. Bill is originally from that area. The finance committee has determined that there will be enough money to continue on for another year.

Following the service, I was asked if Gail and I could play the special music once again. I phoned Gail to see if she would be available next week to play, but Gail will be out of town driving her mother-in-law back to Texas. We decided to play on Sunday, February 22. I told Edna, who schedules the music, that we would play two waltzes by Scott Joplin. Gail and I have moved our practice to Thursday for the coming week.
