I am home. Surgery was on the 10th and Bruce and I arrived home on the 21st. Except for some follow up visits, all is well. It will take 6-8 weeks to get my zip back but that’s fine. There are lots of people around here to yell at me if they think I am doing too much.
Meanwhile, things have been moving along here. We have now had about 500 people on the canopy/zip tour. They all seem to be enjoying it. The staff is amazed at how many people are calling and reserving for their ride. I understand that WCCO television will have a short story about the canopy tour on the 29th at about 10:00 a.m.
Like everywhere else, the temperatures have been high here. We don’t have quite the tolerance for heat – 85-90 degrees seems like we are dying. Yesterday a thunderstorm and wind hit during the night. Right now it is 75 degrees and feels wonderful. I just finished talking to Lee who is driving in South Dakota. His car thermometer was reading 110. Doesn’t sound like fun.
While we don’t have little kids up here, Lee and Eva’s dog Tucker is visiting. He is having the time of his life. Bruce takes him for a walk every morning. The lake is right here if Tucker needs a swim to cool off. Right now Bruce and Tucker are out picking blueberries. They will both be tired when then get back. A nice bag of blueberries will go in the freezer with winter pancakes.
I will write again soon with all the news and gossip from the lodge.
