YAHOOOOOO, it's Friday!
So far in the hour I have been here today, I've been asked to fix broken dentures (uh, gross!), the slippers have shown back up (she's still trying to figure out the holes three months later!), Joseph is desperately searching for his wife (who died ten years ago), and Gladys is mad as hell at the "quack" who sold her the new glasses that makes everything look blurry. She thinks I'm crazy when I tell her it takes a couple days to get used to new lenses and claims she is going to get her old glasses back "if I have to walk to the junction and get them myself!" It's shaping up to be another awesome day here at the Ridge! :)
Onto Foto Friday! Copying the logic of so many other great bloggers, here is my third folder, 20th picture:
I took this picture out the front door of Rock Ridge about a month ago. A rainbow in February is a pretty unusual site around here, and this was probably the brightest rainbow I've ever seen. It was such a random moment of joy for all of us...residents and staff...young and old alike. It was fun to stand in the door and marvel nature together. As we were standing there beholding, a second, much lighter rainbow started to appear. If you look really close you can see it to the left of (or above) the bright one in this picture. Awesome!
(And isn't that little white jeep the cutest? I can hardly wait to take the top off.)
I love spotting rainbows.:)
Dude, you have a jeep? Oooo, I'm jealous -- I've always wanted one!
Man, the last time I saw a rainbow THAT bright was in Ireland 20 years ago! Seriously!
Wait'll Gladys gets her hands on the mug what sold her dose defective spex! She'll moider him, I tells ya! The shyster!
that does sound like a wild day so far. and what a pretty rainbow!
i'm with haley. paint me green. i've always wanted a jeep.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my jeep, especially during non-winter months. We take the top off as soon as it reaches about 70 and won't put it back on until October. Bad hair season is almost here!(aw, who am I kidding? I always have bad hair. Driving topless just makes a handy excuse.)
I've been seeing tons of rainbows out my window lately - they always make me so happy. :)
GREAT picture!! I love rainbows.
I just found your blog today and am entirely taken by residents. I admire you for caring for these folks and your ability to find the humor in all of them and all of the situations that otherwise could seem frustrating and sad. Can't wait to read more.
