Saturday Has Arrived And All Is Well

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday Those were the days.

We’ve been told that only 6 people are allowed to meet for Thanksgiving Day this year, but 30 people for a funeral.

Therefore we will be holding a funeral service for our pet Turkey named “Butterball” on November 26, 2020. Refreshments provided.

In place of flowers, please bring a side or dessert.


We got up early and headed for Mary’s house as we have a pedicure appointment at 9:00 AM.  Yes, I am doing it again. It really feels good.


Mary good a shot of me in the chair, enjoying the foot massage.  It was pretty relaxing.

I had no idea Miss Sneaky captured me in action!

I, of course, reciprocated with my iPhone in stealth mode.

Mary gets the color I selected on her toes.

After the pedicure, we were hungry, and we concocted a plan! We will get breakfast to go and head to Jan’s house. I suggested the Original Pancake House because it was good the last time I was there, and it was a couple of blocks away.

Pre-COVID; we got our order to go, and everyone was eating in the parking lot.

We called Jan on our way to her house and got there in about eight minutes.  She was quite pleased (and surprised).  We told her about our trip to Sedona.

Then it was back to work.  Mary had some required paperwork to do, so I offered to do the wash while she works. Seems like a fair deal. I sat while she did her work and did some off jobs around the house; it felt good to be wanted.

Finally, it was time to clean up and go to dinner with David and Diane.  Well, we got in the car, and just before we arrived at Seal Beach Blvd, Dianne called and revealed Patty’s Place was closed.  OMG, someone in their staff was sick, and Nick decided to close the place down and make sure it was not the COVID-19.

Panic, what to do?  I decided to go to Old Ranch and have dinner.  They were at full occupancy, so we walked around and saw Teri and Shaun just finishing dinner.  We sat at their table, and when Dianne and David showed up, Teri and Shaun took off… They saved us.

Here is our birthday boy, 99, this week!

Dianne is always smiling, and I gave her the grand tour of OR.

Of course, Miss Mary is always happy, and she enjoyed the impromptu dinner.

We are so bust we do not know which way is up!

We headed home, arriving at about 9:00 PM.  We watched a little TV and then crashed for tomorrow is another full day of activities beginning with buying and planting the winter garden at my place.  Robin is coming over about 3:00 as she will help take care of Scout over the weekend, and then we are going to dinner and dancing with Donna and Bob.  We are busy little people.


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.
