Off To Campus Jax!

I always wanted to see a Tooth Fairy!

Up early is our motto; just in time to call the neighborhood roosters and wake them up!

The peas are going wild, enjoying the cool weather and rain.  They have reached the top of the trellis, about nine feet tall.  On average, everyone in Britain eats nearly 9,000 peas per year.

Peas are a good source of vitamins C and E, zinc, and other antioxidants that strengthen your immune system.  Other nutrients, such as vitamins A and B and coumestrol, help reduce inflammation and lower your risk of chronic conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis.

The peas are going wild!

Cauliflower is rich in vitamin C, which is good for skin, healing, and gum health.  It is a cruciferous vegetable that helps prevent colon cancer.  Cauliflower means “cabbage flower” because it is a flower that has not fully developed.  Cauliflower is related to broccoli, Brussel sprouts, and cabbage.

This versatile veggie can be eaten raw, cooked, roasted, grilled, baked into a pizza crust, or boiled and mashed as a substitute for mashed potatoes.  You can even rice cauliflower and serve it in place of white rice.

In another week, we will have fresh cauliflower.

This tomato is still producing after all its brothers and sisters have been gone for months!

The Tomato Plant that would not die!

This little guy was six inches tall when I received it from my cousin upon the weather of his aunt, my mother.  I have kept it with me, and now, 34 years later, it is doing well!

This plant is 34 years old, a gift from my cousin when Mom passed.

Join us at Campus Jax for dinner, dancing, and singing.

Dinner at Campus Jax

He did sound like a young Sinatra in the beginning, but he moved toward the singers of today, meaning he sounded like a cat caught in a trash can with the lid on.

Matt Mauer and a young Sinatra look alike.

We had a table for ten and were next to the stage; great seats, thanks to Miss Vicky!

David and Hilda joined us this evening.

OK, there is room on the floor; everybody up!

We all got up and danced!

We had a wonderful time with our friends.

We danced many dances!

We departed and did NOT stop by Aces this evening.  We watched a little TV 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.
