Catching Up

Nothing really anything new to talk about.  My Mother is doing pretty well, she does have some teary moments, but why not.  She has been through a lot over the last several years.  When I call her now she always sounds so much more 'chipper' than she has in a long time.  I managed to get her an 'in person' appointment at the SS office that is just a few blocks from her home.  We got in after a wait of about 5 minutes or less.  The place was packed.  Apparently having an appointment is the only way to go.  We got everything taken care of.  They had enough information they didn't even need the death certificate.  We actually got the call that the certificates were ready to pick up just before we left for the appointment.  Since Daddy died before the end of the month, she has to return his check.  They actually do it electronically so she won't have to do anything other than adjust her check book.  So we are done with that issue.  

She still hasn't heard from Daddy's pension folks.  I called to check and they said they were still in the time frame of contact, 5-7 days.  They told me 1-2.  I will call her today to see it they called her.  She is worried she won't be able to hear them or understand them in order to get things right.  Not much I can do on that front to help out since they can't give a time frame for the call.

I am feeding good friends dog not to far from us for a couple days.  Also we will be getting The Nugget (my newest Granddaughter) all of Friday if not longer along with their dog.  Son#2 has big show downtown that he is committed to and hopes to make a few $$ and generate interest in his first issue of his new comic.

'K' has a few more therapy visits on her foot.  Into early October.  Then we will start seriously talking about a road trip.  But other commitments have popped up within the next month we will have to work around.  Most any place we go will be North.  That means colder weather.  We haven't even been 'North' at that time of year.  'K' doesn't want me to mention a delay to those plans.  Soooo.....
I guess that's enough for not really having anything to talk about.

Happy Trails
