been very stable for the past year. I have a great crew at Providence Hospital and am
very thankful for that. My new port is working beautifully. A stable course is the goal.
A cure is not possible at this time.
Covid-19 has made hermits of Cindy and I. We read, do puzzles, stream TV, and wash our
hands. I fear the course of this virus is far from over. The real bummer is that all of
the grandkids are out of school and we can't get near them.
I have been driving the 1937 Chrysler around, checking out different systems and adjusting
tolerances. I have been on this little project for two years. The car runs well I am happy
I fulfilled a dream of mine recently, and bought a Tesla, model 3. Cindy and I have had a
Leaf for about 4 years, and like the electric car life. I put a charger in our garage. We
have never charged on the road. Electricity in Oregon is quite cheap. The Leaf has a
range of only 120 miles, which we both found to be too short. The Tesla range is 330
miles. Of course, we have to wait until the virus is gone to reach out with the new car.
On a number of prior posts, I have mentioned the silver linings in my cloud. I recently
had another lining added by the son of one of our boys good friends. Andrew and
Aanen both grew up with Anthony Deloney. Anthony has a son Aaron,
a fabulous young basketball player who led our Grant High School to a recent
state championship. Aaron now plays for the University of Vermont. The school recently
had a fund drive where each student was told to choose an individual to support. The
attached photo tells the rest of the story. Click on the picture to see all of it. It made
Enough of my babble. Thank you all for listening, and for your ongoing support.
