Meant to take a photo of Erin with her latest visitor – Flash. Brandon arranged with Erin yesterday that he and Beck would come by today about 11 am. Beck arrived in his newest costume – a character named Flash. Clark and I had been up because we watched the last 6 holes of the British Open from about 8:30 am to 10:30 am. Erin dragged herself out to the living room when B and B arrived at 10:30 am. But, she couldn’t stay awake, so went back to bed. People with children definitely have earlier hours than we old folks!
Sounds like a football score, doesn’t it? Judy (Erin’s mother-in-law) texted Erin today that Paco’s Little League team had just won the finals for their district in Traverse City, Michigan. Paco had a hit which had advanced the eventual winning scorer for their team. Next step is the state finals in Grand Rapids.
Erin has mentioned several times today how much she misses her paternal grandmother, Jane, whom she called “Bombi”. Jane would have been 110 today. She lived to be almost 101. She was a very hardy soul with a great sense of humor. Usually I call her daughter, Jan, on July 19th, but today Jan beat me to it and called me.
The Apple store called that Erin’s replacement phone was in. Clark arranged that he could pick it up without having to have Erin go in.
Cindy came by on her way home from work tonight and brought tacos from Rubio’s in Gold River. Cindy even helped Clark figure out Windows 7. She is so calm. Erin enjoyed seeing her.
We spent several hours at the Apple store this afternoon when it was 104 degrees outside. Ever since last Thursday, Erin’s lap top has just spun. A very knowledgeable service clerk took care of that.
After Erin had made the appt for the computer, she discovered that the glass on her iPhone was cracked. But, she had been able to use it for the past 4 days in spite of the crack. We had to wait another 20 minutes or so for a phone specialist. Erin had a choice between getting a new phone, but they were out of stock, and it would mean waiting 2 or 3 days for the new one, or getting the current glass replaced, which she elected to do. When we went back 45 minutes later, they had discovered that a couple of pins were broken, and with the new glass, it wouldn’t work at all. So, now she is waiting 2 or 3 days for a new phone…. and another trip to the Apple store.
Erin held up well and was able to communicate.
Just to follow up on Dave and Alan’s Death Ride. They said it was a long and hard course, travelling 125 miles and climbing 15,000 ft. They finished about 7:15 pm. To celebrate Dave’s birthday, they had In ‘n Out Burgers in Placerville.
Erin’s brace is rubbing on her upper calf and making an open sore which is really bothering her.
