Spring is here and so are Ed's Wheels

Spring is here for sure. The daffodills are withering, The tulips are in full bloom and the Rhododendrons are beginning to bloom.

The Pear is blossoming.

The Plum is looking great

And more Rhododendron blossoms. I love this time of year.

FedEx was right on the spot and their service is excellent as usual. It's a good thing they were today because Ed was expecting his new toy. Andrew and I quickly assembled this mobility scooter/golf cart for Ed. It's called a Red Max and it is very red and very cool. Ed inspected is carefully and was soon ready to ride.

So he mounted his new steed and was ready to roll.

Giddy up Max!! was all we heard as he wizzed away toward Sunday (a street at the corner) ready for a hard right turn.

Around the corner he went in a cloud of dust and a hearty high ho Silver.

He returned with a smile.

Satisfied and happy to have a way to get to the store and golf course. There is a golf bag holder for days he wants to hit the Oakway course a few blocks away.

Scrabble Queen even got in the act. I'm very proud of her for finding this very nice scooter for Ed and for Jill and Sharyn both for the kindness and support they are giving their dad, who raised them, both so well. Oh and speaking of raising things and spring I should point out the beautiful blooms in this Blog issue were hand chosen and cared for by that sweet lady riding in the middle of the street.

Tomorrow our dearest friends from the Boston area will arrive for a week long visit I can't wait to see them again.
Scrabble Score - No details BUT the contender won the last two matches........

Certainly, it seems true enough that there's a good deal of irony in the world... I mean, if you live in a world full of politicians and advertising, there's obviously a lot of deception. ~ Kenneth Koch
