AJ called us and said that he could see the creek from our bedroom doorway. We could hear it, too. The creek is about 50 feet or more away and then 20 feet down, so to see it, and our windows don't start from the bottom, means that's there is a flash flood. I saw tree trunks, small coolers, bamboo stalks, cans, and just so much stuff pass by, and so quickly, too, that is was scary. The water came all the way up to my fence, although not to the top of it. We have regular metal fencing, held put by cement and blocks. It even reached up to the leaves of the guava tree beyond my fence. It was fascinating, though.
Today, bright and sunny, and even hot so that I asked Eddie to turn on the a/c in the living room. One of these days he is going to have to install it.
We're watching the NASCAR race. I'm just here, doing nothing. The nerve pain in my abdomen is back, and hasbeen for over a week. I had to take the medicine again, but it did not relieve the pain enough. I can live with pain, but this was intolerable. I don't know how to say it in English. "Insoportable." So, the doctor prescribed 400 miligrams of Neurontin, instead of 300 and now I can function somewhat. I'm taking two a day, and praying that the Lord will heal me, since He's healed me before, from other illnesses.
I can't hear the creek now, it's peaceful, just the coqui choir outside, in spite of the noise the a/c makes. I am thankful that I was able to go to church. there's a lot of love over there, always waiting for me.
We arrived late, and as we were getting out of the car, a young woman and a young girl were getting out also, and placing babies in a buggy to go to church, too. I didn't actually see her notice him, but I do know she did, and I thought to myself, "She is going to wind up sitting beside AJ."
After the service, a lot of people were greeting me, and when I finally made my way to Eddie, who was sitting beside Frank, our pastor, AJ was playing guitar and the teenager from the parking lot was seated beside him, fiddling with a cell phone as if she happened to have been there, but I knew better, and Honorable Son #2 confirmed that she sat beside him in the music room, and when more people came in for a meeting, and he went to find his dad and sit close to him, she followed and sat beside him.
I just don't know if AJ really noticed her, but I guess he did, because he was playing his best.
I displayed considerable restraint, though, you know, I didn't tease him at all. He can't really take it. Not so the Danny Boy. Dan will give as good as he gets and then raise you double. I really think he should continue to pursue a career in Law, he is that good, and even his professors say he should.
This post is becoming dreadfully long. That's what happens when I take this medicine, I chat a lot, and also get very chatty.
