Happy Monday!

Welcome to another day of my life. Today is Monday and I hope your week is off to a safe and great start. I am busy getting ready for another trip. I will be back in the DC area and then in Frederick, Maryland to do a fund raiser with Dab the AIDS Bear. The fund raiser is called Rock N Country and will feature the DC Cowboys, drag queens, performers, singers, dancers and Dab the AIDS Bear. The show is on Saturday, October 8th so be sure to save the date and come up and say hello.

I started off the day heading to AHF Clinic to pick up some of my prescriptions and to change my appointment with Dr. Katella. Turned out he was sick today so everyone had to reschedule their appointments. So now I am see the doc during the second week of November.

Then I went to Publix to pick up a few things like fresh fruit and some dinner items for the house. The pets also needed some more food and treats. It just amazes me how expensive food is continuing to get. If I didn't know better I would swear prices have gone up another ten percent since June. I just hope things level off for everyone. I know I hear many are having trouble just keeping food on the table.

Speaking of having trouble keeping food on the table. I have heard once again that most of the food banks are either out of food or very low on supplies. So if you can, please make a donation to First Harvest or the food bank at Lutheran Social Services. Both serve hundreds and hundreds of financially challenged families every month. Your donation makes a huge difference for someone struggling.

Then it was time to do my daily workout. Today was abs and legs for me. I did thirty minutes of abs work and then forty five minutes of legs. Just trying to keep everything in shape as I continue to get closer to 50.

I have pretty much finished packing for the trip except for medications and last minute items. I am trying to get by with two bags on this trip since it is less than a week. But I have a call into Sara to see if I need to bring a suit or dress clothes for an occasion. I have not seen the final agenda yet so I just want to make sure.

I hope you are having a safe and great week so far. Until we meet again; here's wishing you health, hope and happiness.

big bear hug,

Daddy Dab
