He, as usual phoned us at 7:00am as he does every morning and everything seemed to be just fine.
At 8:30 , as I told my friend Felisol, Mom phoned and exclaimed that Dad had fallen and wanted us to come right away!
As we were hurrying to get ready, the phone rang and this time it was the fallen man himself on the other end of the line, "I am alright.
You don't have to come."
Well Bernie and I decided that we should come anyway and spend the day with him.
Better safe than sorry!
In this picture, my dad is looking at his wound..the wound that Mom had tenderly bandaged up.
I must say it was a pretty good job that she had done.
So why my dad would decide to take it off, I don't know!
But tear it off he did!
No more bandages!
Number two daughter, yours truly, had to patch him up with cotton and wrap it all around with duct tape!
This was NOT a pretty sight!
But what was a person to do?
What was a person to do?
Well, call number one daughter of course!
I called my sister, Betty, and told her that I was going to purchase supplies and asked her if I could pick her up for nursing duty.
Betty happily came over to tend to Dad .
I think that Dad Golden was thoroughly enjoying all of the attention!
In the meantime, Mom Golden got up and after Dad was all patched up again, she and Betty had time for a little visit.
That mother of mine annoys me sometimes.
Here she is in an old kimono and she still looks gorgeous!
She could wear a potato sack and STILL look like a queen!
Dad had Bernie put in the air conditioner...
And THEN, it was time for that smart husband of mine to put together a wooden wishing well that Dad had purchased for my mom for no special occasion other than "just because".
Mom took me out to the balcony to show me her "garden" and I just had to take a picture of it!
Here is a picture of the wishing well that Bernie had finished putting together.
Mom seems to be very pleased with her gift from Dad.
Here, Mom and I, sit and enjoy a cup of tea with Eric standing behind...................while........................
Great Grampa Golden is NEVER too tired or NEVER too hurt to give an ice cream stick to his little friend, Jordan.
Before he leaves, Eric has strict orders for Grampa Golden to watch his step and to be very careful NOT to fall!
At the end of a long and busy afternoon, Dad Golden and Bernie decided to relax a little and watch the news..
