Yesterday had been a tiring day, so we thought it best to stay close to home. Grampa, or as Patty and I call him, Fada (an Irish acute accent like “É “used on long vowels in Irish Gaelic) needed a break.
We thought that name fit, when we first heard it in 2008, while in Ireland, as cousin J spelt his daughter Róisín’s name (pronounced ROW-SHEEN)….R-O-fada-I-S-I-fada-N. We asked him to explain and he spelt it the same and then explained. So, Grampa has been Fada ever since.
We spent some time together in the condo, handling chores and helping out where we could.
Down in the gym
Our only outing for the day was a late lunch on the patio of a nearby pub. B provided the wheelchair Uber and we were soon seated on a comfy outdoor patio awaiting our meals.
Lunch arrives, except for Fada’s

The uphill climb to home provided more of a workout on a full stomach

Grampa and B have a discussion
It was still a good day, but tomorrow, I would be driving B to the ferry, so he could handle some work obligations. Time together is precious.
