I arrived today just at the end of the afternoon exercise session. Mom was in the front row and participated with enthusiasm. I went to sit in the chair next to her and intended to do the rest of the exercises with her. Instead, as I approached, she said, “Who are you?”
“Mom, it’s me.”
“I’ve never seen you before. Who are you again?”
I looked at the staff members who were nearby and aware of what had just happened. They gave me blank looks. Had there been a sudden decline in her memory? Oh no. I looked at Mom again and she had the biggest smile and started laughing. It was a joke. Her sense of humor is still intact.
And then it was off to get her hair washed.
A couple of weeks ago, Sophia decided she was going to learn to ride a bicycle one evening. 30 minutes later = success. Now she will be able to ride the two-wheeled bikes with the other girls in the Tiger group at daycare.
Up in Lake Wildwood, Tim celebrated with a cigar and took this great selfie.
Last Sunday, July 20, the Rio Linda/ELverta Historical Society had its monthly Sunday Social at the Dry Creek Ranch House.
It seems to me like there’s been an increase in small agri-businesses in the last few years, particularly in the northwest part of RL – M St/W 6th/U St/RL Blvd for those of you who know our little town. I invited a couple of these businesses to speak. The Refarmery:
Michael Long, Alice, and Jon Kupkowski explained the experiments they are conducting to meet their goals.
Farmer Deno of The Natomas Farm brought a flat of pluots to share with everyone and told us about the many different fruits and vegetables he grows and his plans for expansion. He gave the 9 lb cantaloupe he’s holding to one of our older members who did manage to carry it to his car. Deno has a great blog also at thenatomasfarm.blogspot.com
It appears that I have been locked out of my email account which was hacked last week. I can send email from my account but have not received email for a few days. However “Yahoo’s Partner Application” logs in every 12 hours or so. Perhaps looking to see if anyone has sent money to get me out of Ukraine? Attempting to solve the problem with Yahoo has not gone well. So poorly that I’ve closed the account already.
So, I have a new email address which I will not put here for obvious reasons. I’ve sent out that address to many people, but if you did not receive it and want it, let me know here.
Yesterday, I received a message from Yahoo Mail saying I’d logged in from a remote computer. I had. From a district laptop I used while working at TRUSD. I was directed to login within 48 hours. I did and that’s when Whoever gained access. It’s awful when this happens. I received one phone call, one text, one email to my second address, and one comment to the blog within 2 hours of the hacking. Thank you friends, one and all. My apologies.
First, a health update. The prescribed antibiotics were too strong for my body to tolerate. I had several symptoms of overdosing, so my regular doctor said to stop immediately. It took another couple days to recover from that. By last Monday, I felt 100% again which was also the first day of a very cool 6-day job for Twin Rivers Unified School District.
Val Sills, Mike Wade and I were asked to develop powerpoints for teachers to use to prepare students for CELDT testing.
It’s been fun working on this project and visiting in between.
