Out And About!

It was a glorious day in California; the weather was perfect!  We had our morning coffee and got ready to go to the Elks for lunch and meet with the gang.  Chuck and Lisa worked to prepare their taxes as they see their tax guy at lunchtime.

A beautiful day in the neighborhood.

The sun was out and warmed things up!  Before leaving for the Elks, we sat outside and discussed what needed to be done in the garden over the next few weeks.  The sun was so warm someone took a cat nap!   So the natural question is, “If a child refuses a nap are they resisting arrest?”

The only thing in school I ever was good at was nap time in kindergarten……I got straight Z’s.

Sawing logs!

We went to the Elks at about 11:45 am and bought four additional tickets for the Valentine’s Day celebrations.  Now we have the Z’s, Robin and Bob, Irene and Dr. Bill, Chuck and Lisa, and Michele and Franklyn going with us.  We may have to work on the table arrangements!

Bob wore the shirt!

There was a meeting of the local patriotic veterans, and Bill Capps made an introduction of Mary to the group.  She got an invite to join the group, duh!

Mary outranked every one of them; she was a captain in the US Army!

Lunch was great, and we shared with our group for a good 90 minutes!


After lunch, we went to Jan’s and brought her lunch.  We decided not to ask her to join us at the Elks for lunch anymore, but we will likely still bring lunch once in a while.

Chuck and Lisa came in at about 5:30 pm, and we decided to go to the Orange traffic Circle and done at Vanattas Italian diner.  The food was excellent.  We got home around 7:30 pm and talked for a while before crashing.  I must be up and out by 7:00 am to see the dermatologist.

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.
