A Stream Runs Through It and A Some Non-News

DeBary, FL.

70 deg. light rain, no wind.
Forecast = Partly cloudy with rain showers. High of 88F. Breezy. Winds from the NE at 15 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 20%.

We had a little excitement in the park yesterday.

You see, the gas company is in the community installing all new poly gas lines because the old ones are steel and they're pitting badley. Well, even though they have all kinds of paint marks in the grass and on the pavement, along with those little red, green, blue and yellow flags sticking up all over the place, they still  managed to hit a water line and break it.
Needless to say, there was a geyser and we ended up with a stream running down the middle of the street in front of the house. The above photo is looking upstream,

and the photo below is looking downstream.

The water ran for about 1/2 an hour before they finally got it repaired. Of course there were a lot of residents out there supervising the repair. ;-)

The doctor who did all the tests about 2 weeks ago called yesterday and told Linda that even after sending the samples to Johns Hopkins, the test results were still inconclusive and they don't seem to be able to tell if there is cancer or not!!! He said that he would send all the information that he had to the other doctor and suggested that Linda set up an appointment with the doctor. When Linda told him that she already had an appointment this next Tuesday he was pleased that Linda had already done that.

So, basicly it was non-news. They sill don't know what the tumor is and Linda and Jim don't know what this next doctor will do. Linda says that it needs to come out, so lets do it and they can decide if it's cancerous or not, after it's out, and then determine if any further treatment is necessary. !!

So, it's wait!!! wait!!! wait!!! And, there's really nothing that can be done until Linda sees the doctor next Tuesday. Then, hopefully, a decision can be made and they can get this "show on the road"!!!!

To be honest, I'm a little worried about Linda. This waiting is really starting to get to her. :-(

Did you know that there are more plastic flamingos in the U.S, than real ones?



  1. Yes. Not knowing can be worrisome. Hang in there Linda and Jim, and know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. Take a deep breath and we will all pray that Tuesday will get things started.
