Oh my goodness it has been soooooo hot here the last few days. Monday was 113 in Los Angeles and 110 out here. Today was only 90 but it is so humid it feels like 110. It is supposed to slowly start getting cooler. I certainly hope so. The nights have been hot too. That is very unusual for Calif. It usually always cools off at night. It makes you feel like you are in the south somewhere.
Garrett has an appointment soon to go over his test results with his Doctor. Something in his liver is very high. I don't know what they will do to treat it. I hope it is easily taken care of.
I have to start calling people out for estimates on getting the outside of my house painted. I want it to be the color of coffee with a little cream in it, and the trim is going to be white.
That is all for now. It is too hot to think anyway. Love to all. Grams

They finished my doors and windows today about 3:30pm. I was doing the walk through before paying the man and they had forgotton to shut the door that goes out to the covered patio. Barney got scared and flew out onto the back yard. I picked him up and he flew into the neighbors yard. They were not home so I ran in their back yard. I picked him up and he flew into the canal. By this time I am crying and he is crying, because he isn't used to being out. I kept talking to him. The man went and got 2 ladders. He put one on my side of the fence and one in the canal. He climbed over and held the ladder for me while I climbed over. I ran to Barney and by this time he was exhausted and came right to me. I picked him up and wrapped a rag around him so he couldn't fly away again. We climbed back over the ladder and ran into the house. I can't believe I got him back. The crows were flying all around and I was scared to death they would kill him. I was praying the whole time. Thank goodness Rick and I had just trimmed his nails and clipped his wings last week. He could only fly short distances. If he had fallen into the canal, I never would have gotten him. Naturally all the stress and excitement put me into fibulation. That is it for now, love to all, Grams

It was a beautiful 90 degrees today. I hope it don't get any hotter because they are replacing my windows and sliding doors Wednesday and Thursday. It won't do any good to have the air conditioner on when there are no doors or windows. I have to start calling out painters for estimates. When the windows are in I need to get the outside of the house painted. I made maccroni and cheese for dinner. It had to be something easy because I did a lot today and am tired !!! That is it for now. I love you all, Grams
