Go Rockies! Happy 4th!

 

I love the Colorado Rockies fireworks games.  Nothing more pleasant than a good baseball game (Rockies beat Cincinnati!) followed by a fireworks show.  I couldn’t get tickets for a fireworks game this year so a friend surprised me with our favorite front row third base seats.

A ladies favorite who is previously tried to land in our laps in these very same seats!

July 8th last year!

Love front row third base and a great evening with the ladies!

 

World Wide Knit In Public Day!

Guess what I did today?

Joined some interesting people to sit and knit in public in Olde Town Arvada square.  Sitting in the shade of huge trees and the light breeze made it very pleasant.

 

Made some great new friends who pick a different charity to knit for every few months.

and this guy?

getting ready for Beatles Night.   Several bands will be playing Beatles music in the square.  Free family fun.  He was painting the circles for a game called Twister from that era.  Green, orange and blue dots to follow.  This guy was thin and wirey, he’s going to be great at the game!

Re: S.497 – Lymphedema Treatment Act

Dear Senator Gardner, I have recently been diagnosed with lymphedema caused by damage from my cancer treatments. The supplies I need every month to keep my condition under control are not an option. Without those supplies my condition will progress and become worse. With the supplies I can keep my condition under control. My insurance covers none of the cost of of these supplies. This makes no sense! People with conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes get help from their insurance with the things they need to keep their condition under control. I’ve paid my insurance premiums for over 40 years now and until I got my cancer and now this lymphedema I barely used my insurance. Now that I need it, it’s not there…. How disappointing. Please reconsider your position on this important issue and review this proposed Act again with my comments in mind. I still work full-time, and have been able to adjust my budget to pay for my necessary supplies to keep my lymphedema under control. I just wonder about people who are on such a tight budget they let their lymphedema get out of control, what happens to them. Or the young family whose child gets diagnosed with a form of lymphedema and they have to find a way to pay for that child’s supplies. I hope you are able to read my email personally and not one of your staff. I would love to hear from you if you have any information that you would like to share with me. Thank you for your time today, Paula Matsumoto.

Do I sound annoyed?   Colorado’s Senator Michael Bennet and Representative Diana DeGette are cosponsoring this Act and are on board.

Got an automatic email response.  Hope to get a real one some day.
