Remembering My Dad And Ben

Three years ago on this date, my sweet Ben passed away after spending almost four months in the hospital. I cannot believe that he has been gone that long. I remember it like it was yesterday.
Watched a really good movie on Netflix last night called “Silverado”. It was a western from around 1985. Had a lot of really good stars in it too. Went to bed around 10 pm, but had a little trouble falling asleep.
Got up before 6 am to let Hiker outside and when she came back in, we got back into bed but didn't go back to sleep. I turned on the TV and watched “CBS Sunday Morning” and then we got out of bed.
I made some waffles for my breakfast and then Hiker and I headed out to get my Lottery tickets and then drove over to Canyon Country Park for a walk. Wanted to get out earlier than we did yesterday. It was in the 80s when we walked yesterday, whereas it was only 70° when we walked this morning. Also wanted to get done with our walk before everyone started arriving for Father's day cook-outs. I could already smell several BBQs being started.
I sure am having a lot of trouble with my feet lately. Seems I cannot walk much more than a mile before I start feeling blisters forming on the balls of my feet. I even put bandages and tape on the balls of my feet this morning and wore thicker socks than normal. Anyone have any suggestions to keep the blisters from forming? I need to get some as “blister pads” at the drug store.
Stayed below 80° here today.

My Dad


  1. 3 years!!! my time goes so fast. My son died 5 years ago the 23 of this month.

  2. I can hardly believe its been three years. I haven't had any problems with blisters. But being flat footed I have to deal with pain in feet/ankles, knees and hip/back at times. I have inserts that have helped a lot but not completely. Hope you have a great week! Sheila
