Girls Night Out (It’s Thursday)

Fact: The Term “Working Lunch” Is Kind of an Oxymoron!  One of the most counterintuitive ways to undo a productive morning is to try to power through to the afternoon without a break.  Research from the University of California-Davis found that when we skip lunch and try to push on with thought-intensive tasks, we actually hinder our performance since not having lunch can exhaust our cognitive capacity.  Think of your growling stomach as a spokesperson for your brain, which badly needs a rest.  You won’t lose momentum, we promise.

The day began with us in the swim spa at 5:58 AM!  We listened to the roosters get up, gargle, and start their morning routine.  I remember last Easter morning  when the rooster was strutting around the hen house and came across a nest of eggs dyed every color of the rainbow. The rooster took one look at the colorful display, ran outside, and beat the heck out of the resident peacock.

We were ready to go at 10:00 AM, so we stopped by and saw Jan bringing her some goodies!

After a short visit, we went to The Boot Barn and returned my new western shirt; the darned thing lost a snap, and I only wore it once!  We fought the Boot Barn online computer until we gave up in utter frustration.  There ought to be a policy: do not let anyone over 50 stand in front of the computer.

I spotted a Hallicrafter S-94 Civic Patrol 30-50Mhz receiver on the way out.

I had one of these in the mid-1950s!  We could listen to police and other VHF frequencies.

Now we are off to the Santa Ana Elks Lodge for Girls Night Out.  Paul was a good boy and had a wonderful salad, and Mary ate grass also.  George talked to Colleen and they reconnected after George dumped his drink into the keyboard and everything shorted out.  POOF!

The gang showed up, and we had a ball!

We ran by the market before going home.

Returning home, we worked around the house until about 6:00 PM, when we watched TV.  It was a nice slow day.

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.
