Christmas Week

 

I finished up my physical therapy with Dawn at the VA Clinic. I got to tell a bunch of people "I love you" silently of course; also to wish them a Merry Christmas. I did have a little "mere detour" along the way. My electric scooter I use to travel distances due to some physical limitations, thanks to Agent Orange, was showing that the battery charge was almost at zero.

I cannot get the cart into my apartment so it remains in the back of my SUV. I charge the batteries thorough an inverter that the charger is plug into. The inverter is only powered when the engine of the SUV is running. So I have a couple of options; first is to go on a two to three hour drive but I don't have the time or want to fight the traffic, second is to find someone that will allow me to plug into their A/C. That leads to my brother.

My Brother

My brother, Glenn, has been up here for thirty years or so. He is married and has an extended family. When I first got up here I attended a couple of the cook out he had with extended family. Lets just say that I don't fit in with them. Normally he is tied up visiting the extended family over the holidays. Every once in a while they are home alone and I get to visit with him then.

I did stop by Monday and we check to make sure power was getting to the charger; it was. So I'm going over there after the sun has gone down and most on the kids and grand kids are gone on Christmas, maybe it will be peaceful and quiet. I have already talked to him and arrange to get an extension cord run out to the charges.

Well the best laid plans of mice and men, reset charging for tomorrow. One of Glenn's step kids that brings out the Marine side of me was there and to avoid an unpleasant situation it was best to reset to tomorrow. It must be 7 Day Mental Diet at work causing me to avoid slipping back to the old blueprint, which would had jumped at the chance to mix it up with that person. I know we are to love the whole of humanity but some time it is better to avert situations that normally turn ugly.

My Scooter

It will be nice to run to the store, it has been a week and a half since my last trip. The basket on my cart will hold no more than one full bag of groceries. So the last trip was Monday a week ago and it will be nice to get to the store and get some groceries.

It turns out that waiting till the next was a big plus. Because of where the inverter was to remove the plug required a lot more then we would have been able to do comfortably in the dark. The Master Keys at work saving us a lot of time. Once we were done I headed to the store, yea!
