Back Home & GREAT News!

We were discussing upcoming events and OMG, Halloween is just around the corner!

Get ready! It’s time for the Family Pumpkin Carving Day!

We recovered form the 800 mile round trip to Stockton and proceeded to “catch up”.  Paul worked in the garden and Sue paid the bills.  We rested most of the day but the ol’ cabin fever got us around 4:00 PM so we cleaned up and headed for Patty’s Place.

Prior to leaving, we called Tom at the rehab hospital and were amazed that we answered the phone and “talked” to us.  He recognized us and we chatted for maybe five minutes.  It was a miracle.  From not expected to make it to talking in a week.  We were elated!

Patty’s was not very busy when we got there. Paul had a glass of wine and the famous bacon wrapped prawns while Sue did the twice baked potato. Patty’s reminds us of Cheers where “everybody knows your name”.

Paul asked for a single ear of corn and he got what he asked for!

Did You Know? Twice-baked foods are foods that are baked twice in their preparation. Baking is a food cooking method using prolonged dry heat acting by convection, and not by thermal radiation, normally in an oven, but also in hot ashes, or on hot stones. When the desired temperature is reached within the heating instrument, the food is placed inside and baked for a certain amount of time. Such items are sometimes referred to as “baked goods,” and are sold at a bakery. Checkout Wikipedia and you will be surprised!.

We returned home and watched the season premier of NCIS, NCIS New Orleans, and a couple of Friends episodes.  We are happy the new seasons is here.

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
