True love still exists for Sartors who will celebrate 60 years of marriage next month

I am so happy we were blessed with beautiful weather today. I peered out of my bedroom window this Monday morning and looked at the yard work ahead. This was the perfect day to give the lawn and surroundings its first Fall spruce-up of the season. Late this afternoon, with all outside chores completed to my personal satisfaction, I dropped the dirty gloves.
Sunday we made a trip to the emergency room of Richard Roudebush Veteran’s Medical Center. Paul’s shoulder was giving him pain in level 10 range. The X-ray technician took him upstairs to take a few pictures. We found out that the patient has a frozen shoulder. Now we are treating it with an prescribed ointment. According to the paperwork, it is strong enough to not only bring that pain level down. It is capable of knocking Paul’s socks off. He has been complaining about his feet today. I am happy the medication is working and the sling is helping him as well.
We will be celebrating 60 years of marriage November 11 in Brownsburg. He should be new drug free by then and talking with both hands again. If he cannot do that, I’m a little mouthy when I get wound-up and can pick up the slack. Truth is this has been a tough year for my husband health-wise and otherwise. I will be 78 years of age, November 4. I ask for a facelift, but he suggest looking for a lift to take us to Walmart. Halloween masks are on sale.
I had my eyes tested. They are still green and match! I have strong teeth, what there is of them. With all of this work and worry on my plate, I poop-out easily. He said I am an alright catch and he would marry me again in a heartbeat. I guess that means I’m in like flint or there is a fly in his ointment!
I found another cover, he chatters, “Cold”
I inquire about the night pills.
Time wills and hurries to make him old
and he warms up against the winter chills
He has arisen from a million spills
We tied the knot without best wishes from Rome
My dowry was absent of fancy frills
But love, the tool has made our house a home
And still, he smiles and thrills my dizzy dome!
