I had to get up at the crack of dawn today. Not too bad. I slept well last nite. I took a good friend to Salina to the hospital for an xray. She was told to be there at 845am. Well, the xray dept. told her she was supposed to be there at 7am. She had her app’t card and showed them. I worked at that hospital for almost 20 years. Nothing has changed. They finally apologised to her and said it was in fact their fault. The xray tech was there when I was. I remember when he started. And he even remembered me. Nice to see him. Super nice guy and good at his job. Which is not scheduling.
After the hospital we ate at the Hong Kong buffet. I love it!! Great Chinese foods. One of my friends does not like Chinese food and we joked about it last sunday when we were trying to decide where to eat. I just had to text him and tell him I missed him. A different friend loves it there. That was always our place to eat when in town. I texted him also. And got a phone call right away. Nice to visit. And he had good news. He is moving closer to me. Easier to visit!
At home I had to write an article as a program for my Swedish group tomorrow. It was easy. I got my info from different sources so I hope I got most of it in order!!
Late afternoon the clouds built up and there was thunder. I went out and took some photos. At the farm we had heavy rain! An inch in much less than an hour. There were a couple of hail stones and no wind. But my husband “W” was SE of here in a pasture. It rained so hard he could not see anything. And the wind was extremely strong. And there was large hail. Large enough that one cracked the windshield of the truck. Yikes! Our dog was with him. She had a total mental breakdown. Would not even get out of the truck here at home. Poor baby. Then it all moved on. The tv said the hail here was golf ball sized. The next 9 days look fairly dry. We are officially out of the drought here. Western KS is still in an extreme drought. They just cannot get a drop of rain. Hope it does not get too hot here. I am so ready for autumn.
