Friends, Great to Have Them

It wasn't too long we were in Costco when I began to run out of energy. I find that happens more when I have pain. I didn't have much pain before we started, but just walking any distance brings it on. Things have gotten so much worse this last year or so!
I don't have a membership with Costco. It would really save money. I was so happy with what I found.
On the way home we saw a yard sale and stopped. The woman had an Osterizer, which I had been looking for. I'd like to get a juicer some day too. But, for right now, I can make smoothies in this one. I got it for $8.
We were only gone four hours, but I was exhausted when we got back. So I went to bed for a while .
Then I remembered the neighbor across the street, Her name is Liz. I don't go by that name anymore, so it's perfect. She is 80 years old and had her hip replaced in January. She danced Ballet Folklorico up until then. Very ambitious and active woman.
I had promised Liz to go walking with her yesterday, but was too exhausted from having my osteoporosis IV injection then, so I didn't go.
Since I had my second wind, I just had to keep my promise today. It was cold out . I asked Liz to turn around and go back when I began to feel more pain and loss of energy. She went back home with me, then went off on her own to finish her lengthy walk. Then, I absolutely had to lay down and have been resting for hours. Wish I had her health and energy. Plus, her positive attitude. The picture below is Liz. I took it last year right after she came back from a performance.
