It rained most of the day, but that did not prevent us from stopping by some of the beaches and walking around. My goal was to get my feet wet, but it was cold and nasty so all we did was take a walk.

Here are pictures of Mom collecting shells on the beach at the Kennedy memorial beach.

Next are some pictures of Larry  at the beautiful beach up at Chatham.





Larry took some pictures. These are from his camera. That’s Mom and me.

Tick Bite

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

I get tick bites from time to time. The cats bring in the ticks and sleep on the bed or the ticks jump on me when I inspect the bees. I get tested for Lyme disease regularly, but I have a feeling that I may have developed antibodies because it never comes back positive.

About two weeks ago I was bit on the back on the left wing bone side. I did not realize it, but it itched and I scratched it when I wasn’t thinking. Since I didn’t think to twist around to see my back in the mirror I was not really aware of the bite other than a persistent itch.

Yesterday, the bite became badly infected and my shoulder, underarm and upper arm started turning red and swelling. I am now on Tetracycline. The swelling is down, but there is still a huge red patch on my back. Tetracycline makes me feel sick and I have a killer headache.

I will call the doctor tomorrow because I don’t want to feel crappy on my Cape Cod trip.

For the three of  you who were reading this blog a year ago, you will remember that Larry and I try to take a couple of days off and go near ocean every year. We leave Thursday and will return Saturday night. I will bring the ‘puter and a camera to take some pictures.

Cape Cod Day 2

Friday, June 20th, 2008

Larry and I, due to someone forgetting to pack the tackle, did not go fishing. The day, however was great. We took some back roads and got lost and went along the shore north of Chatham (pronounced chat ’em). We stopped at the Chatham lighthouse. We wound up lost at a boat landing in a very beautiful section of Chatham. We took a wrong turn looking for a garage sale and we found a very beautiful house.

Here are the pictures. Blogger is down so it may take a day before you see this.
