I slept pretty well last night. I awoke about midnight and again about 3:00 AM but I generally got back to sleep but finally got up shortly before 4:00 and dressed and got ready for the day. Missy was restless and that disturbed my sleep. She probably hurt...poor old thing.
I will go to Independence this morning to get my hair done and afterward will go out to Juanita's to visit with her a bit. She called yesterday using her cleaning lady's cell phone. Her own phone has died. I don't know what she will do now. Without a phone and being blind, she is really isolated now.
I don't know whether Bob will go or not. He could visit with Betty, his 93 year old sister. And he may want to eat at Big Cheese. I will text him later. It's only 6:00 AM now.
I have had my oatmeal and a biscuit and coffee and Chia and juice and have fed Missy too.
I took Bob with me to visit his sister, Betty, while I had my hair down and went over to Juanita's to help her with her bank statement and have a visit.

christian community for about the last 30 years. A big percentage of
white evangelicals have abandoned biblical principles for conservative
More of us need to be aware of these things, especially as the mid term elections approach..
After I got home, I read again and later after 6:00 I took my bath and laid down with Missy to watch Ken Burns' "America". I watched the building of the Brooklyn Bridge and also the Statue of Liberty. Both programs were interesting.
I also had a bowl of ice cream.
At nearly 9:00, Missy and I went to bed.
