We are back in Boise and have enjoyed spending time with grandson Archer and his parents! During our video chats this winter Archer was calling me “Beema.” I had never really connected with “grandma” so I liked that Archer came up with his own name for me. Now that we are here, I am definitely Beema and, a couple of times, Archer has called Randy – “Beema-Man.” I really loved that because over the years Randy has enjoyed it just a little too much when I was called “Mrs. Randy.” Now he is Beema -Man. Although, to be honest, Archer is calling us both Beema most of the time. We’ll see how that evolves!
We are enjoying being back in our Riverside RV spot by the Greenbelt (paved walking path) and the Boise River.
The temperatures are unseasonably warm and the river is very high. It has been very nice for hanging out!
Randy had his follow-up tests (after his issues last fall) and the scan and exam were squeaky clean! (Praise! Praise!) Elko had his geriatric vet check and all of his results were fine as well. (Another praise!)
Unfortunately the truck didn’t fare as well. We had the oil changed in Fresno and the mechanic there had spotted diesel and oil leaks. Sure enough, both leaks were found again and the minor repairs are scheduled. The truck will also be getting new brakes and tires. Oh well, better the truck than Randy or Elko!
I’ve been able to do things that are more fun – like lunch with my friends Theresa and Jacque and going to choir practice. It is always nice to be back in Boise. Except for a week in Cabo, we’ll be here, down by the river, until the end of April.
