Dr. Pauer is really a class act!

Sue decided we should go to lunch so we went to the local Mexican/Caribbean restaurant called the Yucatan Grill as they always have vegetarian selections.  We have been going to this place for 25+ years! We called Robin and she joined us for lunch, made it even more special!

Good groceries

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.
