A Great Day
Our trip to Peterborough to attend the Alzheimers Society meeting went well. We were early enough to first visit the graveyard where Jim's father and aunts and uncles are buried. The meeting was held in a very luxurious retirement home called Canterbury Gardens. I doubt any of us could afford to retire there! They had a buffet supper consisting of various sandwiches, cheese platter, veggie platter and desert tray. Jim and I managed to find lots of food to eat without straying from our diets. We picked sandwiches that just had meat, so we ate the meat and wrapped the bread in a napkin to dispose of later. I had picked a quiet spot to sit and eat so I don't think anyone saw me stuffing bread in my purse! The organizers thoughtfully had my speech at the beginning of the meeting, so when I finished speaking, I accepted a lovely gift basket and we were on our way home again. Jim says I was 100% again, and everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy what I had to say. Hopefully some folks there got a few tips they can use to make life easier. Now its back to hauling wood and screwing screws!
