July 4th Weekend Visit

13 Jul

Last weekend we went tomes our good friend Jerry. Jerry has been very I’ll, in and out of the hospital and is currently on dialysis 6 days a week since his heart is only working to 10% of it capacity. Several weeks ago they installed a pacemaker / defibrillator and increased the beats per minute to make his heart beat a little faster and hopefully remove more fluid from his lungs. ( Maybe I need one of those to help my heart beat faster on the bike so I can keep up).

Jerry lived in West Palm Beach which is two and a half hours away by way of the sugar cane fields.


We took Jerry and his sister Ginger to lunch at a dinner recommended by Ginger’s son, Neal. It is unusual to find a dinner in Florida, at least on our side of the state. So it was off to Howely’s “where cooking in sight must be right.”


Joanne and I enjoyed our time laughing and sharing with Jerry and Ginger. The food, atmosphere and clientele was shall we say…. Fly infested, dirty and scummy. The food was shall we say aweful. But we all had a good time.


Soon it was time to drive back to the clean side of the state.
