Clean

Day 43

Laundry for Mexico Trip

8:11am:
We have just finished doing our laundry. The laundry might have waited for several days. There was enough underwear to go another week. However, our Mexico trip begins in a couple of days. And, we wanted to look good for that trip! We would not have liked to be wearing dingy clothes in Mexico where cleanliness is a very high value!

Actually, if we had waited until being in Mexico to do our laundry, we could have had it done for us. Full-service laundries in Mexico are everywhere. As I recall, a full-service wash, dry and fold in Mexico costs about $5.

9:08am:
Battery weather
For several days in a row, we have had bad battery weather. When it is rainy and overcast, our Yingli solar panel has big trouble keeping the Interstate Deep Cycle Battery charged.

Today dawned as a good battery weather day. Sunny. Blue sky. No clouds.



10:06am:
Going to the movies
Just lately, a few great movies have been released. This is usually not the case. I have gone several months in a row in recent times, where not even one movie interested me.

Last week I went to the new Star Wars movie. Good movie. Although because of my hearing, I had a bit of trouble understanding what was spoken in some scenes. I guess that I'm waiting for my hearing to really get bad?

Just now, I purchased a ticket to see, "The Post." A movie starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks and directed by Steven Spielberg. Wow! They threw all the talent into this movie!!

Next month, the Clint Eastwood directed, "15:17 to Paris" will be released. That also looks to be a smash hit!


12:33pm:
Uncle Tom's Cabin
I've been listening to the Audible book, "Uncle Tom's Cabin." For me, it's kind of hard to follow the language.

I believe that I am going to have read [Listen] this book more than once to understand the words and story.




10:13pm:
Perfect evening
First, I traveled back in time to the 1970s via "The Post" movie.

Then went to an Italian restaurant near the movie theater where I ordered Fettuccini Alfredo. My favorite pasta!

Does it get better than this?

BTW! "The Post" is a great movie!

  2. Mexico will probably beat the price but I got mine, Bernafon's, at Costco for $2,300. I have a bluetooth device that I wear around my neck that allows me to recieve and talk on my phone through my hearing aids. I also have a device that hooks up to our TV that brodcast the sound from the TV to my hearing aids through the neck device.

    1. Nancy,

      I have not figured out about hearing aids yet. On the Amazon site, hearing aids are sold for a few dollars?
