**YESTERDAY. After publishing 2 blogs, 1 a postcrossing about someone I

received a picture postcard from who lives in Finland, I made phone calls to

Medicare to resolve a billing issue and then Wells Fargo with a question about

refinancing our house and property.

I later drove to Orrville to Rite Aid to pickup 3 prescription medications

prescribed by Dr. Steiner at the Wooster Eye Center. They were drops I need to

start dropping into my left eye, 4 times a day starting 3 days before surgery to

remove the cataract in my left eye. He will also place a stent in my left eye

which will help with the pressure that is caused by glaucoma.

I spent much of the rest of the day in the house taking a nap which is unusual for

me and working on my computer.

I later drove back to Orrville to Taco Bell and China Buffet for takeout and back

partly cloudy skies and with similiar temperatures through next Saturday, with

rain on Monday and Wednesday.

weather is one of the main topics, also, especially if you are a stranger to each

other and must come up with something to talk about.

I've experienced both very cold and very hot weather. From a windchill of 45°

below zero in Omaha, Nebraska and South Korea to 3 digit temperatures above

zero in South Korea, Virginia, Texas, Nebraska and here (Ohio) several years


I spent some time in Las Vegas recently, but I didn't stay long enough to enjoy

the sometimes 120° temperatures during the summer.

I've talked to thousands of people during my lifetime and most prefer around 75°


I've always liked warm/hot weather. I was hoping for at least several days of

3 digit temperatures in this part of the world (northeastern Ohio), but nothing

yet. In very hot weather it takes me several days to get acclimated, preventing

myself from getting dehydrated by ingesting plenty of salt and Powerade, water,


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Indian summer

"Indian summer is a period of unseasonably warm, dry weather that sometimes

occurs in autumn in the Northern Hemisphere."

You know something? I would just like to see at least once in my lifetime, Indian

summer sticking around until late April of next year.
