Being productive and accomplishing everything that’s on my schedule is usually my daily plan. But, on occasion plans don’t go as expected and schedules get changed just like mine did today. It’s unusual that I don’t feel good and making a trip across town was certainly not on my schedule. So, to make a long story short the pain in my ear prompted me to visit my family doctor. But, this did not stop me from taking some photographs and trying to enjoy the day with my young grandson.
Since the same day appointment wasn’t until one o’clock, we had lunch at his favorite spot. The kid’s meal included a Hot Wheel toy, a motorcycle; however, my lunch was simple, a cup of coffee. It was interesting watching him glue the decals one by one on the motorcycle making sure the placement was correct before he would eat his lunch.
Once in front of the medical building, a bouquet of flowers in full bloom welcomed us.
Just before we entered into the lobby of the doctor offices I shot a quick self-portrait in the mirrored front glass door. (You should try it sometime holding a notebook in one arm and extending the camera at a low angle with the other hand.)
Inside, I remembered the horse on the wall when I was here the last time. It’s a nice painting.
The day ended with a heavy rain shower followed by the most beautiful puffy white clouds. Do you see the face of the “cloud man” in the sky?…it’s the lower cloud with the pointed up nose and a smile on its face.
