Paula and I finished my visit today by having another breakfast at home, talking a lot, and cleaning another table top. Her house is already looking so much better - hope she is able to keep it up and get everything back in order.
We had so much fun together - it is amazing that we can talk so much and still have more to say! I enjoyed my visit very much and I think she did, too. I hope we were able to talk through some things that will help her. It is certainly a blessing to have been friends for 60 years. If I had a sister, she would be it!
I left Davenport to head back to Des Moines about 2:45 and got to Billy's shortly before 5:30. It was a nice drive. The leaves have suddenly starting turning and I noticed a huge difference from just a week ago when I drove the same highway the other direction.
After watching some football and getting some laundry started, we went out to a Mexican restaurant for dinner. We picked a place he had never been so we could check it out. This one passed - food was very good, decor was pleasing, service was good.
Back home, we watched a little more football, I checked my email and Facebook, and we talked before I finally ran out of steam.
I have had another great day!
