Belated news from NY

Loretta's CT Scan came out OK and doctor was very happy with results. This gave us some peace of mind as she was quite concerned about some pain. The service for Loretta's sister Lorraine at Arlington National Cemetery was beautiful and very impressive as was the visit to the Marine Corps Memorial nearby.

We spent the rest of our time in Virginia, visiting friends, shopping and dining out and one day long trip to the new Museum of American History at Smithsonian Institution. Loretta got a lot of much needed walking on that trip. But we weren't able to get half through the building in one day, so something for seed.

The weather here in Western NY has been rather yucky all Summer (if you can call it that). Last week we finally got more than 2 days without rain. But temperatures have been so low that we have had to run the furnace every morning and many evenings. We expect 80, 90 and some 100 degree days instead of 60 and 70 degree days we have been experiencing. Must be GLOBAL WARMING?? We have spent some days visiting friends in addition to the day to day, items shopping, dining, laundry, etc. Also have done some computer work for friends and minor maintenance on truck and trailer.

Last Sunday was Loretta's Family Reunion. We had a great time there and she was very happy to see friends that we seldom see again. We did miss those that could not make it though. Loretta's daughter Sharon was there from Tennessee with her husband and daughter. They were having a great time when Sharon took a tumble from the picnic bench where she was sitting. Some of the relatives are with various Fire Departments and felt it best not to move her. So an ambulance was called along with an EMT. She was transportated to to WCA Hospital in Jamestown, NY. As she had landed with her upper back across the edge of a concrete pad so we were very concerned about possible back injury. She did break one rib and has some contusions, but fortunately no serious injury. She is in quite a bit of pain which interferes with their vacation, I am sure, but hides it well.

They are heading back to Tennessee tomorrow I think but as of now we don't have any firm plans. There is a Fleetwood Travelcade Club rendezvous later this month in Farmington, NM which we would like to attend. However the high cost of travel makes it appear out of our budget.

Oh. regarding our friend Cal Doud from Florida, he has been transferred to a different hospital in Ocala. He is showing some improvement and appears to be getting off breathing assistance. But has a long way to go. Please keep him and his family in your prayers as well as Sharon.

Thank You and
GOD Bless

Andy and Loretta
