Pot Roast Tonight; I Can’t Wait!

What is a thesaurus’s favorite dessert? Synonym buns.

Goodbye stitches because at 9:00 AM, this beautiful face was returned to normal, stitches out, and more bandages on!   Just before pulling up and parking, I spotted a dog and decided to stop and try to get him home.  Well, as the car slowed down, I realized it was a coyote, and, being not nearly as dumb as I look, I continued driving.

He kept on walking, and I went the other direction!

I met up with the coordinator of surgeries, Gloria, and she wants to get back to dancing.  Last week we talked about dancing, and somehow the blue gin got into the conversation.  She said it was terrific, but when she went to the market and found out the cost, it was a little rich for my blood”.  Well, this morning, I found a liquor bag and shoved in a new bottle of 1908 and delivered it to her.  I got a double elbow bump!  She was delighted, and that made me smile.  It’s fun to brighten up someone’s day even when you do not know them!

Greg was called when I departed from the doctor’s office, and he met me at home. Time to walk!

What name should we give the new machine?

Before walking, I chatted with Colleen on the Bat Phone.  I shared the plans for the weekend with her.  Right now, I plan to spend time with Mary, go dancing, see Roger’s Gardens, and relax.

We walked about 35 minutes as this was his first time walking for exercise.  We may be doing this again.

Not too bad for Greg’s first time out!

We did visit the neighborhood artist!

Ferocious beasts!

When we got back, it was 11:00 AM, so I asked if he wanted to go to “Girls Night Out.”  He said, “OK,” and we did.  We spent ninety minutes visiting with Capps, Anderson, and Tielrony.  My “surprise” was a Tequila Sunset.

The waitress is challenged by bringing a “surprise”… So far, she has done well!

The five of us were there for ninety minutes just laughing ourselves silly about nothing!  We missed Bob Z, who was on vacation with Donna this week.

I am happy to call Mike, a good friend!

The afternoon was filled with little chores! Finally, I canceled my insurance policies with Liberty Mutual as I have the Auto Club now. My driver’s license is now good for another year, thanks to the pandemic.  The garden got a good bath, which was needed before this weekend’s predicted heatwave.

Around 4:00 PM, I got cleaned up and ready to leave for Mary’s as we are having pot roast, my favorite.  She heard me mention my favorite dish and prepared it just for me (…and Jan).

She had patients until almost 5:00 PM, so I made a command decision to get some artichokes from Ralph’s.  As I walked in the door at the market, Mary called and was leaving work.  Perfect timing.

Mary had the pot roast going in the slow cooker all day, and I got a sample went I arrived, perfect!  We decided to sit for a few minutes before dinner and share our day, an activity which I enjoy. Having someone to share things with must be built into my DNA.   The dinner was perfect!

We dined outside, and Mr. Scout was happy to see us.

I chowed down on the dinner; it was just like I wanted it to be. I may have been a little over-zealous, as indicated below.

Oh dear, perhaps I was over-anxious!

“Work? Who, me??”

We sat outside and talked until 8:45 PM when my curfew alarm went off.  The lady has to work tomorrow, so I got the “Meals On Wheels” delivery ready, and off I went to see Jan.  By the time I got to Seal Beach Blvd, it was 9:45 PM, so I made a pass by Patty’s and shot the bull with John and Chuck until about 10:15 PM.

It was a full moon, so I could not resist a quick picture.

It was a beautiful Moon this evening.

I had my evening cup of coffee and thought about the past thirty-plus years, and although I admit to some tears, I felt blessed that we had all that time together.  But, as they say, life must go on, and I am moving forward.

The love of my life for thirty-five beautiful years!
