Went back to the Cardiology Center Thursday for a pacemaker checkup. I still have arrhythmia issues so they gave me a prescription for it. The prescription requires that I have three EKGs in three days to see if it is working. So, I went Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday this week to PMC and they send results to Amarillo. So far so good but I have slowed down my pace here at the paper. Going to cut back on my activities a bit until I start feeling better. Grateful to have Dana Jameson and Nathan Parson to see that the paper gets printed every week.

My oldest son Casey is 40 this Saturday. This week my youngest daughter Megan made a career move from a pizza restaurant to a shift leader in a new coffee house in Argyle, Texas, just east of Denton.
