Yesterday morning Stephen called us and wanted to know if Gerri & I would be able to meet him for dinner. He wanted to eat with us, but he also wanted us to meet the young lady he has been seeing. As a no brainer, we gladly agreed. So Monday night we met at Longhorn’s for a “late” dinner. Now late for us is anything after 6:30pm. Jennifer is an attractive young lady who is also in the National Guard. She is studying Criminal Justice and wants to do something in a related field. We spent about an hour and half eating and visiting. She is a delightful young lady and we are glad they have the opportunity to get to know each other and “hang out” together.
I am still struggling with my back pains. A year and a few months ago I hurt my back and after an MRI we found I have a herniated disc. I went through a long series of spinal decompressions and a few lumbar epidurals. All of this was done to hopefully avoid back surgery. It worked and so far I have avoided having back surgery. It seems that I aggravated the back while hosting at the state park and I am trying to resolve an old back problem. I might have to repeat the same process as last year…? We will see!
Enough of that! The weather yesterday and today hints of fall in the air. Gerri and I sat out and just enjoyed a gentle breeze and a beautiful sunset just a few minutes ago. The temps are in the mid to upper 70’s and low humidity…. Makes for a great evening on the patio. We might just build a campfire this week and just chillax under the stars. Seems like a good idea to me.
