larry weekend, golf, rain yes

well we had larry weekend this weekend
larry was our now demised rooster that frequently attacked
my wife she for several years
she defended herself with the infamous rooster rake
these attacks provided me with numerous jocular moments
over the years
larry submitted to the circle of life but we kept his name on the
annual party at our place we call the country n

the docs and employes from the clinic where i worked were
invited every year
as i had just retired (because of my mci (mild cognitive impairment)
diagnosis this one this weekend turned out to be the largest one
of all
also present were previous doctors who worked there and some
past employees and family members
also the doctor who took over my place in the clinic was here
with his family
i think those of you who choose him will be pleased

think everyone had a good time especially the kids
the kids love to ride on my lawn tractor with its trailer
through the yard, pastures, and 'snake country'

the kids also love the annual trip to the river where they can
wade in the water, throw and skip rocks, get muddy if they can
get past their parents, try to catch frogs and minnows, pet the
neighbors horses on the way, see a deer if they are lucky, and
climb over the rocks

the kids and their big kid parents also got to fly kites although
the wind was strong
mine went right up as the wind caught it but the manufacturer
forgot to tie the string and the kite continued its lofty flight up
towards the canada direction

my wife she and i furnish the hamburgers and hot dogs and each
family brings some food item
my favorite of course were the deserts ranging from several
brownies, chocolate cake, chocolate buck eyes (u know where
that person is from), the special amy desert, yum yum cookies,
ice cream and maybe the best the chocolate fountain

for my retirement i received a nice book of photos from the past
at work along with a gift certificate to my favorite organic green
nursery here in the austin area
cant wait to use that certificate

the photo book brought back old memories and i enjoy looking at
it every time i pick it up
thanks guys

know this is the last larry weekend
they have all been fun
this marks the end of that part of my life and my career as a doctor

now have to face a new future
have prepared myself for retirement
am doing those things i like to do (except for the housework and
dishes and the wash-ok i owe my wife she-didnt realize what she
had to put up with this for several years)

to be continued

thought tiger might come back
thought there might be a big playoff
exciting masters
no more golf for me until next year
now its nba basketball

yes we are getting rain here as i type this blog
those dam birds made a nest in one of my gutters and
it is overflowing
of course they had to pick the gutter thats the highest one
said i would never go back up there after the last time
maybe one more time

hopefully it will rain enough to repenlish some of the moisture
in the ground here
we are inches behind already this year

except for those dam birds this was a great weekend

  1. Your Larry Weekend sounds divine. What a great time for the kids! Surrounding yourself with such love does the heart and mind good. When that rain woke me up at 4:30 I almost went outside to do a little dance, instead I just smiled. :~)

  2. Don't give up the Larry weekend! It sounds like a lot of fun. In fact, make an announcement on the blog so I can come to the next one! Read my latest Post, my son did not enjoy the rain.

    they had a great time
    read my april 12 blog about the ck tour
    and the rain

  4. kw
    read your blog
    my wife she almost does ghe same thing
    she dont like the storms

    our dog disappeared during the storm
    he knew it was going to rain even when
    it was sunny outside
    maybe the barometric pressure bothers him and bothers some people
