1st day of being alone

Jerry left about 7am to go to the hunting shack. he likes to go up there alone for a couple days before the sons and grandsons get there. of course that is always a worry to me. he had a heart attack many years ago and while he seems to be in good condition and takes care of himself, he is there ALONE, with no way to communicate or anything. i told him if he has another, he should know he probably will die. i am always so glad when at least one of the boys gets there. deer season starts on Saturday am---so until then the guys will get up the wood for the barrel stove, play cards and talk. i am so glad there is no booze or smoking in their group, but the hunters in the woods with guns and alcohol in their bodies are the ones that scare me. the ones who make "sound" shots---they shoot at sounds instead of seeing the animal. I pray many times a day for God to put a hedge of safety around them as they walk in the woods.
I accomplished nothing today except to change the bed I have been sleeping in here in the den.tomorrow I have to make a big pan of enchiladas for #2 son to pick up and take up to camp.plus I have to start getting things ready to leave for texas soon after Jerry gets home. I fell asleep in the chair all evening, which I guess is allowed when you are as old as I am. now I am going to hit the hay again and hope I can sleep some more.. ------over and out for now.

Hi Barb,
It's natural to worry but I hope you can enjoy at least a little of your "alone time!" I hope all is well on your end.
Best,
Marty
