Even During A Move, Life Must Go On!

A friend didn’t pay his bill after someone removed the ghosts from his house and ended up being repossessed.

Mary stayed home this morning, and I went to Casa Valencia; we had bills to pay.  Funny how people still want their money even though we are very, very busy! After the bill-paying session, I checked the new drip irrigation system, and all was OK. I will finish it off this weekend when I get the 1/2″ while hose which I ordered from Oregon.

Then I proceeded to get the plastic storage boxes away from the office and into the garage, carefully placing labels on them; we will need room starting next week!

I ran by and got Mary at 11:00 Am, and we headed for the Santa Ana Elks for “Girls Night Out.”  We missed Mike Andersen, but we had a full crew with Capps, Carlson, Gielow, and Ash joining Bob Z, Mary, and me.

Mary Capps joined us today!

After lunch, we returned to Casa Valencia, where Mary opened and organized the last of the packing boxes.  The only boxes remaining are the books and my photo albums, which I intend to cull down to just a few.  It’s funny to see those old pictures now as they are fuzzy and were taken 30 years ago before I acquired some knowledge on how to take pictures.

We declared victory about 6:00 PM and returned to Mary’s place.  On the way out through the garage, I noticed that my Craftsmen storage cabinets had arrived, so Joe and I will hanging them this weekend.

I somehow have picked up a “summer cold” because I was sniffling and had a sore throat.  We ate a little something and tried to watch a movie, but at 7:00 PM I was done for and went upstairs and crashed.

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.
