Japanese teahouse


Here’s the teahouse in the hospital’s Japanese garden, featured in Tuesday’s post.  Now doesn’t that look like a great place to relax on a beautiful Los Angeles summer afternoon?  Or morning?  Early evening would be even better, but they close the garden too early, alas.  It’s also closed on weekends.  Sigh.  Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, taken at the City of Hope, and part of my famous Garden series.

LRN4 had her transplant today!  It went perfectly and she’s feeling fine.  Now the healing begins.  Her doctor told us things have been going so well that it’s not impossible to think we’ll be out of the hospital three weeks from now.  As opposed to his previous prediction of four weeks.  We’ll take every week we can get.  We’re natural-born Village People!

In a freak occurrence, it rained pretty hard this afternoon.  Very dark clouds suddenly appeared and it started pouring with fairly frequent lightning strikes.  Kind of strange for around here, although it was nothing like we used to see in Pennsylvania.  For one thing, the hospital didn’t catch on fire.  No complaints there.

Got a flat tire on the way home last night – picked up a nail or something right before I got to Betsy & Bob’s house (hereafter referred to as Betsy & Bob’s Bed & Breakfast, or B&B’s B&B).  The tire went down overnight.  I tried to get Bob’s (very good) compressor hooked up to a (non-functional) tire inflator.  After that failed, I called Ford’s emergency road service number.  They got somebody out in about half an hour.  He re-inflated the tire for me, after which I immediately went to the tire store Betsy had recommended.  They got me right in, fixed and balanced the tire, and had me out of there with another half an hour.  Sweet!  Everything seems fine now.

And that’s it for today – one of the best days of my life!  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking (and possibly related to Tuesday’s news) food violence news: sucker-punching Cheez-It thief!

See you tomorrow.

    Cheez-Its aren’t worth it.
