Paul hit the pavement about 9:30 AM after assuring Sue would be going back to bed and resting. The target today was Staples as Paul was looking for three small clipboards to keeps lists better organized. He walked for two hours.
The map feature works great… The small “pip” just down and over from the third-mile marker is Paul inside Staples tring to find clipboards!
Chugging right along!
While walking Paul got reminded of the next holiday, probably time to get reservations to go out with the gang if we can. For the last several years we went to Il Garage in Stanton for Valentines day dinner.
Tis’ the season
This flag needed an up-close picture… Paul wants one for his yard!
Indeed… Only another couple of weeks!
On the way home, the chairs were spotted in a neighbors front yard, Adirondack‘s perhaps? Paul was afraid of using them but next time, he may stop and enjoy his diet coke he got at Subway!
Good idea… Wonder if they would mind?
Did You Know? The Adirondack chair (in Canada, more commonly called a Muskoka chair) is a simple chair made of wood or man made materials, generally used outdoors. Originally made with 11 flat wooden boards, it features a straight back and seat and wide armrests. The advent of various man made materials have allowed for this style of chair to be made from polymers and other hard impact plastics.
The first Adirondack chair was designed by Thomas Lee while vacationing in Westport, New York, in the Adirondack Mountains in 1903. Needing outdoor chairs for his summer home, he tested his early efforts on his family. After arriving at a final design for a “Westport plank chair”, he offered it to a carpenter friend in Westport in need of a winter income, Harry Bunnell. Bunnell saw the commercial potential of such an item being offered to Westport’s summer residents, and apparently without asking Lee’s permission filed for and received U.S. patent #794,777 in 1905.
Berries are berry good for you!
He cleaned up the mess from yesterdays plantings and filled up two 100 gallons trash can with trimming, leaves, and weeds! A successful afternoons work! He also gertilized the Blueberries as they were beginning to bud and he wanted to give them a boost at this strategic time.
In the evening Paul and Sue stayed home, something we never do on Thursdays as that it Phoenix Club night but Sue was not up to it. We stayed around the TV, watched movies, and dran our non-alcoholic champagne with Paul’s chocolate chip cookies!
