Tuesday It Is…

It was a magnificent day with the nice warn Sun, unobstructed by clouds,  lighting up the flowers like a WWII anti-aircraft spotlight!  Paul’s destination was the Rossmoor Shopping Center to test his ability NOT to stop at the bagel store…he was successful1

Today Paul made it 200 miles for the year!

The three miles of today’s adventure pushed Paul past the 200 mile mark in his quest to hit 500 miles this year!  As he rounded the shopping center, Paul spotted Charlie Tuna doing the latest dance.  After some serious thought, Paul decided it was a dolphin!  How does it do? “Sorry Charlie”.

Mr. Tuna was happy about Paul doing 200 miles!

Returning home the flowers were quite spectacular with the daisy’s just going wild!

The flowers are in a blooming frenzy

After a quick meal, Paul worked in the garage and was rudely notified (by a vibration in the butt) that the delivery man was just five stops away. Today Paul gets pencil holders!  Keeping an eye on the phone, Paul ran out to the street and greeted the driver as he passed him by…say what?  Yes, we stopped next door and then proceeded to back up to where Paul was standing and delivered the purchases.

Paul was out in the street waiving the delivery man down! Thanks to the alert!

Yes!  Every couple of months we get together with Jan Mongel for a “Champagne and Pretzel Night” which means random people are invited to eat, drink, and be merry (or Mary).  She is just a few short miles away in Villa Park right off the freeway!  Easy drive!

Tonight we had the Finch’s along with Bob Z.  We arrived about 6:15 PM and Jan poured us out of the house about 11:00 PM after devouring all sorts of goodies and sharing our innermost secrets!

Brian recounts the time he set fire to his fathers shed with his Brian’s new rocket!

Jan and Bob and bantering back and forth about the latest and greatest whatever!

Jan and Bob get going and they are a real hoot!

It’s amazing how friends can get together and all of a sudden five hours can disappear!  We giggled, laughed, and told stories all evening.

Yes… It is a selfie from a guy with shorts arms! (Remember short arms means a long ____)

We had a wonderful time just chewing the fat.  You know, those things that never happened were sure a lot of fun!.

We headed west about 11:00 PM arriving at 11:20 PM and we watched a little bit of TV before crashing.

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.
