A Busy Guy!!!!



Oh Boy! I guess we don’t appreciate what others do until its left for us to do. The us in this case is me, Linda is in Halifax babysitting our grandchildren and have I been busy. Its 11 am and here are the things I have done so far. Dogs got me up at 6.40am, made coffee and a bowl of corn flakes, fed the dogs and the cats. Put medication in Bella’s eyes, cleaned out the two litter bowls. Stripped my bed and did a laundry. Had a shower and dressed, ironed the clothes (always do ironing, Navy Trg) washed the dishes, prepared the wood stove ready to light. Turn off pellet stove for cleaning, while it cooled took the dogs for a 50 minute walk back through the fields. I ‘m home now and writing this blog before I get to the pellet stove. Better get moving the temperature is dropping in here down to 60 degrees. Its a busy day, but hey! an old salt like me can handle it.
Cheers and keep reading. Oh! nearly forgot,took out the garbage too.

    I hope my wife doesn’t read this as it may increase her expectations of me somewhat. It was an interesting read yesterday about your heart problems. We never seem to get an acurate description of some of the feelings that one has when having a heart attack. I have suffered from an acid problem most of my life and always wondered if I would know the difference as the symptoms that have been described for a heart attack match the symptoms I get when I have problems with my oesophagus. Please they looked after you and you continue in good health.

    Hi Tony if you are worried about your wife reading this why did you post it twice????LOL.
    Regarding my heart attack, its nothing like the way they portray it in the movies. I didn’t fall down,no pain in my arm, nobody undid my tie etc. I’m quite fit for my age (73 now)Linda and I walked almost every day and still do. I’m not overweight, haven’t smoked in fifty years, don’t drink much, mostly a glass of wine and the occasional glass of Irish. We both thought we were eating healthy, we weren’t but it wasn’t too bad, no junk food,no pop etc. We are on a stricter diet now with no salt,greasy food etc. Its very difficult avoiding salt though. I have had acid reflux but my view is it has nothing to do with the heart. I think what I noticed the most was breathing, I could find myself out of breath with only a little exertion. Something for you to watch if you have concern about your heart. The only other symptom I had was a strange feeling in my chest, sort of like bubbles floating around. It didn’t hurt and didn’t last long, probably why I ignored it. What actually showed I was having heart problems was the blood test not the EKG or any other test. So if you are concerned make sure they check your blood.However I hope you don’t have a heart problem, I wish you good health.

      I entered it twice because being an ex communicator I can’t abide typo’s and I noticed I missed the ‘d’ off pleased. I tried to correct it after I posted it, and must have hit the wrong button. Ah well.
