Just Another Thursday!

When I saw your smile, I realize the reason I was crazy in love with you, my dear wife!  I wish I could see your beautiful smile right now!

We did so much together, from the top of the Emprise State Building to Urulu in the Australian Outback to a ride on a WWII cargo vessel, we did it!  We went on the Lane Victory many times setting sail for Catalina and then getting attacked by Japanese Zero’s and German Messerschmitts, all in a day’s work!

Looking for the dance floor as the music has started!

Robin left this morning, so I am back to being alone, but I have a lot of work to do!  First things first; I got all the washing and drying and folding done, Sue would be proud of me.  I then studied the wine situation as we have about 200 bottles of wine. I need to move the bottles into the garage as I will never drink that much!

The next room to be painted, at least one accent wall, is the guest bedroom.  Pale yellow was selected (because I had a lot of it remaining), and I got everything ready to go.

Hunger hit me, so I stopped and fixed three chicken breasts.  Having NO ideas on how to cook them except for boiling them and then simmering them for a while, I reverted to the trusty internet.  I learned how to boil/simmer chicken when our Chihuahua babies got old.

I found a recipe which I modified slightly and voila, I ate three of the garlic chicken breasts with asparagus and baby spinach salad.  I put the fourth chicken breast in the freezer using the new FoodSaver 4400!

Delicious! Damn, I can cook! )The purple boxes are all my pills, only two are prescription)

Before starting the painting, I checked the email and had to share this.  Too funny, especially if you have an Alexa device (I have nine of them).  Several of the scenes hits home.

The painting was finished at about 6:45 PM just in time to get the evening call from the Duda’s, Robin and Bob and the east-coast families.  Colleen and Mark and I chatted for quite a while.

I also talked to Pete and Lisa and a little later, my on Joe  for a while, and then I turned to the TV and began a new series called “Star Trek, Picard.”  Summary: Set at the end of the 24th century, 18 years after the events of `Star Trek: Nemesis,’ with Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role, `Star Trek: Picard’ revolves around retired admiral Jean-Luc Picard; he is still profoundly affected by the loss of Lieutenant Commander Data, portrayed by Brent Spiner, and the destruction of Romulus, and steps into the next chapter of his life.

He may be retired and old but he still has fight left in him!

I listened to the news for about 15 minutes and then I turned to CNN where rampant sciolism was occurring.  Disgraceful at best!  No wonder our dear neighbors are so paranoid as CNN is all they listen to. They would say anything to hurt the government.

By 10:00 PM, it was bedtime, and I put on my “new pajamas.”  That is true, I have not slept in PJ’s for 50 years, but getting older and sleeping alone means I get cold.  So, I wondered through the magic of Amazon and selected a conservative outfit. Well, perhaps not “conservative” but when in the washer and dryer, I definitely will not miss them.

NO WHISTLING LADIES!!! I did not get the ones with little feet in them!

Good night all.  Good night my beautiful bride, I will be thinking of you!

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.
