Watching the young folks
Yesterday, the tennis courts at Brownsburg High School reopened. Young students of the sport and instructors were enjoying the extra warm sunshine and keeping hydrated.
Some wore masks and others opted to take the other choice. Distancing did not work very well with the kids and adults in charge.
They were all happy to see their friends and classmates and get back in the game of things.
Later in the day we watched people in the bleachers at the football field from our patio doors.
No doubt, the Brownsburg Bulldogs were meeting or warming up for the fall season already.
There is much to view from those glass doors, since the large school that houses over 2,000 students is our close neighbor.
It is nice to watch the birds at the feeder, squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits. It is nice to see my flowers in bloom and garden row of healthy plants along the fence reach for the sun.
We watch the sky, the movement of the air traffic, an approaching storm or an occasional rainbow. From the dawning of a new day until the dark of night there is something special to see, just simple pleasures - Gods gifts to-us.
We old folks missed seeing the young people while the school is in shut down and I hope all will go well when the young scholars return to their studies and sports there.
Paul and I only go to the grocery store. We can’t see our doctor’s at their request and fear of the virus.
He has been overdue for shots in his knees and spine. He is suffering more each day. He continues to try to reschedule an appointment with the pain clinic at Richard Roundabout Medical Center, in Indianapolis. The veteran is told to take over-the-counter pain relievers for now.
My husband is 81 years of age and has other health problems. We both agree COVID-19 would not treat him well.
I have some useful information to share. Paul had not received a bill from VA for two months although he purchased meds. Not wanting to owe for past due bills, he called 866-827-O318. The associate Instructed him to call 888-827-4817 to request for an account balance and other important information he will need to pay the bills. Ask for VA Department # 3.
If we preferred to wait to pay the bills they may add up while waiting until business returns to usual.
Today the check is in the mail and the elderly veteran has no need for additional worry. We have it covered.
Please follow the guidelines handed down by the professionals for your safety and that of others.
