I got up at 6:00 am and woke Mary up saying, “It’s time for the Sunday Car Show!! Hurry, get ready!” Soon thereafter, receiving a bop on the head, I realized it was Saturday… I was a day early. I slithered back into bed and slept for two more hours. Now I know why they call me “The Eager Beaver!”
Today, we just veggied out and prepared for the arrival of Robin and Bob. Mary made her world-famous turkey sandwiches, and I assisted by taking three inches of water out of the pool in preparation for the predicted deluge we were expecting.
I asked Mary, “Can a turkey jump higher than the Empire State Building?” She was puzzled, so I answered, “Of course! Buildings can’t jump.” I will recover after a few days rest!
Mary also thawed out some homemade tomato soup; we were ready to feast this evening while the water levels were rising!
I sat by the TV watching the weather predictions, and in fact, we called the vet to see if we could rent another “Scout” so we could walk onto the Ark two-by-two. I did notice the weatherman was pretty ugly!
As the forecast grew worse, I put on my thinking cap and came up with a brilliant idea: Let’s practice swimming before the downpour hits.
Plop plop fizz fizz, into the water we went. The “fizz” was from an old AlkaSelzer I had in my swimsuit! I like to throw pieces on the ground at the beach and watch the birds!
Mary loved the idea of nice warm water!
Scout just shakes his head and worries that people will think he is related to us!
After the swim, I went to the market with two grocery lists: one for us and one for Jeff. I brought back a four-pound chuck, which I plan to cut into one-inch cubes and brown tomorrow, throwing in some onions, potatoes, carrots, and finally some peas. Beef bourguignon is my favorite dish to cook, especially on a cold rainy day!
The kids came over, and we devoured the homemade tomato soup and a mess of turkey sandwiches. Bob even finished his tomato soup! We also took a plate/bowl over to Jeff.
Robin was recovering from some facial surgery, so I did not point the camera in her direction for fear of losing an arm or leg.
We all watched “Wonka” on the 90″ TV in the TV room. Read more about it on Wikipeia
We sat around the kitchen table after the movie and talked for a while. We mentioned we thought we may have a leak in the roof, but after Bob and I went upstairs, we were confused. There is NO evidence of any water above the kitchen island, so we will have to wait until the deluge comes.
We went into the attic, but alas, there were no signs of water, so we thought perhaps something spilled onto the island.
We hit the sack around 10:30 pm and are quite proud as we are on day three alcohol-free; we don’t miss it at all.
If you have to get old, it is sure nice to grow old with a friend!
