T-3 And Counting

“You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place…like you’ll not only miss the people you love, but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place because you’ll never be this way ever again.”

Mary is off to work, and I am off to the Casa Valencia to do some work before I head to Los Alamitos to begin “tagging.”  No, I do NOT have spray paint, but I have labels of various colors that I shall place on the furniture and other objects so the packers/movers will know where to put stuff.

Thursday, the move is happening!

It is a little hard to believe it is happening, but it is for the best and will kick-start the rest of my life on this planet.  That is a good thing! I now appreciate what my Mom and dad went through when they moved from Comey Avenue to Wade Street after twenty-eight years!

Mary went to work, and I went to Casa Valencia and worked on the security cameras and other goodies until about noon, at which time I headed to Los Alamitos.  I began the tagging process going by Staples and getting pads of different colored papers.

Mary brought lunch at about 1:00 PM, and we had a glass of vino before going through the kitchen.  We will a trash can full of throw-away items and another large box of Salvation Army goodies.

At 4:00 PM, I jumped in the shower, and we headed to the Himalayan Grill for dinner and dancing. I ordered chicken vindaloo spicy!  I love it when it is served hot on the iron skillet!

My dinner was enough to do everybody in as I take spice level 10!

The band looked pretty good this evening, and there were ten of them!

The band was great tonight!

The light flashed, “ALL DANCE,” so we did!

We danced and danced!

We decided to take Precious home and not stop by the Los Alamitos house; why take two cars when one will do?

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.
