Cece- I feel you. I couldn’t give up coffee completely

Chris - I haven’t read that one but I have read some of hers as well. Yay for finishing.

Norman - Sounds great.

Happy Wednesday everyone.

Mel - this was one of her earliest books, so I guess she was still perfecting her craft. I'm glad I got it finished.

Norman - sounds good.

After a few days of cool weather, it's supposed to get warm and humid here today. Might get out to the store later to stock up on a couple of things they have on sale this week.

My neighbours are a 65 year old man, and his 90 year old mother. The man was taken to the hospital yesterday with chest pains. We didn't see an ambulance come, so didn't realize anything was wrong until the mother came over all upset because she had been watering the garden and couldn't get the hose turned off. She was pretty incoherent, and kept talking Hungarian instead of English, so it was really confusing. We found the son's cell phone number and called him to find out what was going on. Anyways, he's at the hospital here until he can be transferred to the city for surgery. I'll take the mother up to the hospital this afternoon to visit him.

That’s difficult. I know what it’s like being a second language learner. Especially for a situation like that, it can be scarier. One of my parent’s fears is growing older and not being able to fluently communicate with doctors. They are fluent in everyday spoken English, but when things get more technical, they’re lost. Thankfully you were there to help her! Very nice of you to take her to the hospital. And thankfully there are tools like Google Translate. It’s not perfect but it works.

Didn't wind up taking her to the hospital The son thought it would upset her more. He's been able to talk to her on the phone and she's calmer now. I sat with her a bit this afternoon and she seemed better. Will definitely keep checking in on her.

How was everybody's day?

Very true

That’s good Chris.

My day was pretty good. Did a later inspection today so I didn’t get home until 6:30. It went well though.

I’m glad tomorrow is Friday.

Chris -

I’m definitely happy it’s Friday.

I might hang out with my sister tomorrow. Sunday night I’m seeing Alanis Morisette in concert with a few friends.

Hi, everyone.

I'm so behind on reading everyone's posts on here because there is so much sport on TV at this time of year.

To answer a previous question, I was supporting Dimitrov, Medvedev, Zverev , Keys and Andreeva amongst others in the French Open. I will read the rest of the posts later. There is more sport to watch, tennis, golf and the Euros.

Thanks for the anniversary wishes.

Julie - woah, you have a lot of sports to keep up with! Enjoy watching, and good luck to the players or teams you support.

Mel - enjoy the concert! I her songs that have received radio play, but have never heard a full album. We're going to a concert next week. Two actually. Had tickets for Ian Thomas, then a show by a Styx & Journey cover band was announced, so ... it will be a belated anniversary celebration.

Cece - is school out for summer now where you are?

Brought the neighbour home from the hospital yesterday afternoon. It would be Tuesday before they transferred him to the city, so he decided that he'd rather be at home. By discharging himself, he dropped down the list a bit, but has an appointment for the end of the month. Hopefully he doesn't have anymore issues, and can take the time to be sure that everything is organized for his mom.
