Mondays with Melitas – September 16, 2013

Preview for Battle of Wounded Knee…

I should never have left town because there was a little heat…

It was just not in the cards this time to have a nice pleasant time visiting my relatives and especially attending the San Juan Capistrano Historical Society Annual BBQ.

I lay flat on my back from Thursday evening to Sunday.  I had arranged to get dressed and some of my family even came to me with wheelchair ready for my 95 year old body to go for a ride.  But guess what…I just couldn’t make it! Drats…

On the program at the picnic, the president always announces the oldest people and one of my nephews had told him I wasn’t able to make it.  He opened up the program with the announcement of my fall.  I am sure that put a black cloud on this years BBQ.

When the BBQ ended a bunch of my family and some other folks arrived at my motel with our BBQ dinner.  Of course my tequila cocktail suddenly appeared so a little party started and my mood became better.  At least the trip wasn’t a complete waste of time!

So now, here I am back home, after a brief hospital stay…I am laying on my own couch being tended to by my warden and even my writing teacher came over to transcribe this brief  message.

I may keep this up for awhile, I’m kind of liking this attention…

Until next week…
