productive day

flowers that d and k sent me for valentines day. i was really surprised didn't expect them at all. valentines day was productive. had some medical test done, then spent 2 hours trying to install new bathtub spout, went to dance class, spent 2 more hours installing spout again, kept leaking, finally got it fixed without busting a water pipe in wall, went to church and came home to collapse. expect I'll be sore on Sunday. My old body is not used to so much activity!

grandpa b's

grandpa b's house, old family home, before it was torn down by the airport authority. just one of the family's homes that the airport tore down. all most every house and every school in my life was torn down by the airport. every home my kids lived in has been torn down by the airport. i can never take my grandkids and show them where i grew up or where their parents grew up. all this was to create a new runway for safety, but since twa turned into american airlines and then the bottom dropped out of air travel, the runway isn't even used! so many lifes disrupted and lives turned upside down. a city destroyed.
