The Baby Gets A Bath!

A man tried to assault me with milk, cream, and butter. How dairy!

Time for the Grey Ghost to go to the spa and get his oil changed!  We were off and running at 7:30 AM to Cerritos Auto Mall, and while he is getting prettied up, I mosied over to the Lexus dealer and went shopping. It seems like a nice Lexus ES350h is in my future, and the future is likely my birthday!

My birthday present this year to me!

When I came home I got a text with a picture and I “lost it”.   Sue never got to see or hold Emerson or Emylou as she is weeks old just now.  Read the shirt, that simply made me cry…I now know tears are OK.


After cleaning up, I met Mary at her house, and we drove to Banning so she could check up on Annie, her long time friend.  Because of COVID, I went to the shopping center and walked around in the 100-degree heat.  4,500 steps in the heat worked as I am in the 186 range now.

Banning is surrounded by vast open countryside!

We returned home about 5:30 PM, and Mary fixed dinner, and I assisted where I could.  We watched and laughed through “Run Away Bride” before I headed home at 8:00 PM.  It was delightful to see a person, Mary, caring about a long time friend enough to take the time to exit work, drive two hours to visit, take care of health-related questions/issues, and bring a good bag complete with food ti that friend.

Mary and I last December

Arriving home, I went through the mail, read a little bit, visited Sue, and finally crashed at about 11:30 PM.  I remembered how much Sue loved her dancing, and we would be out three times a week until the last year or so.

Always a smile!

Good night all!

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.
