My knee was so much better today. I am now able to put my full weight on my left foot, just not quite straightening the knee completely. But that allows me to walk without the crutches if I am just going short distances. I am very pleased with the progress and hope it continues. I didn’t move around a lot today as I mostly sat at my computer and finished the PowerPoint presentation for the Wayland Sailing Association. It has been fun to relive the two sailing trips I have made on Windbird with Sam and Dawn. The first was a three-week sail in the Bahamas in April of 2017 and the other was the sail from the Dominican Republic to Puerto Rico in early March of this year. Those trips are now documented in a PowerPoint presentation that I think I might turn into Shutterfly book so I can send one to Sam and Dawn.
Jed, Sam, and Jonah are at a Scout camp out this weekend, so Heather and Ollie stopped by on their way home from dropping Sam off. Heather had sent a text telling me that she was going to pick up Thai take-out and come by for dinner. But when she arrived, they had their bags for spending the night, but there was no food. Ollie had decided that he really wanted it to be a special date night with Oma and mommy and he wanted to go to the Chinese restaurant downtown. However, when we got there, he announced that it was not the right restaurant. Good thing, because it is closed. He said the restaurant was on the same side of Main Street as the Chinese restaurant, so I asked if it was Aného, the Mexican restaurant a little further down the street. He thought so, so we drove on. When we got there, he agreed that it was the restaurant he was thinking of, but he really didn’t want Mexican food. Heather and I think he had memories of the two restaurants confused, so I suggested we go to Homeport Sushi. He agreed, so we finally found a place to eat! We had a great dinner and then came home to watch a Nova episode. Also, his choice. He chose one about the development of the Concorde, the French and British supersonic airliner. But halfway through, he found it not very interesting. So, we watched a couple of episodes of Shaun the Sheep and then he and Heather went to bed. That’s a special date night for a six-year old with his mother and grandmother!
