Well, Joe's wife, Loma has been driving him to the Thursday lunches at Wendy's.  That is good news.  Both Joe and Marv seem to really enjoy their time together over burgers and fries. I can't imagine what they talk about for an hour.  Loma goes to visit her brother who lives nearby. Last Thursday while I waited, I found a new little bookstore that is air-conditioned and has comfortable chairs to sit and read in.  I bought two books, Mark Twain's Letters From the Earth, and Emma Lou Thayne's Once in Israel, which I think I already have, but don't know where it is.

Yesterday Marv voluntarily gave me his car keys.  Now I have his wallet with all his credit cards, including his driver's licence and medical cards.  I found his cell phone (while I was looking for his wallet).  I put all his banking records online with mine, so I have access to both.  Yesterday we went out to buy a new fridge.  The old one leaks a continual puddle of water on the floor, and the door is falling off.  RCWilly will deliver it on Wednesday.  A few hours after we got home, Marv asked, "Did we buy a new refrigerator today?"  I told him we did.  He said, "I thought so, but it's all like a dream.  Everything is really cloudy."

He hasn't wanted to go to church for a few Sundays now, and I am just as happy to stay home with him.
