The front entrance of Lucas County Health Center (aka just plain old hospital) from the east end of the big back yard at St. Andrew's Church on a beautiful cool sunny morning: 9:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 17, 2010. We were here first, then along came the hospital to sprawl all over the neighborhood (it is a BIG hospital; this is only the tip of the iceberg) behind us.
That's the Life Flight helipad in the foreground on the left. Those helicopters sure make a lot of noise --- but we don't mind. The principal view from a Life Flight helicopter as it takes off is the big red cross on the back of the church. We like that because this way our prayers are carried with the crew and patient as they fly away to either Mercy or Methodist in Des Moines.
South Central Chapter meeting at 3 p.m. today, which is why I was at the church in the first place this morning. Good news: I remembered to set the bags out on "garbage" morning. Second good news: I didn't back over them when exiting the driveway.
