The Weekend Is Almost Here!

Oh Dear!

Paul went to the doctor to get a physical. A few days later, the doctor saw Paul walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm. A couple of days later, the doctor spoke to Paul and said, ‘You’re really doing great, aren’t you?’ Paul replied, ‘Just doing what you said, Doc: ‘Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.” The doctor said, ‘I didn’t say that. I said, ‘You’ve got a heart murmur; be careful.’

Time for a walk and this time Paul knew the route so no map needed.  One hour and 2.52 miles plus lots of flowers!

Vibrant colors

Such soft shades of pink!  Just amazing how Mother Natures does this!

It belongs is an art museum!

But the flowers that are red take the cake!  These little guys just screamed “Look At Me”

Has someone been painting these using oils?

Red red red and more red!

Sometime the ol’ mind plays tricks on Paul but this one was quite interesting.  Seems like an old fence, correct?  Paul walked by… screeched to a stop…turned back..and took another look!

Look at the base of the post carefully

Paul was being watched by a rather small but large dog! He was quite handsome with one ear pointing up and his nose just over the concrete base.  Paul named him “Spooky”.

Just peering over the concrete he was!

Back home and the finishing touches went on the swing cover!  The green is the new cover and the PVC frame supports a 10 mil thick commercial tarp.  We even but moving blankets on the swing seats to protect them from the weather!  Great for sitting  in the afternoon!

Come rain and come sun… The swing will stay dry and out of the UV rays!

Not it is time to go dancing and we did…Garden Grove Elks here we come!  Everyone what there this evening and Paul had the best swordfish steak he has ever had!

Did You Know? The flesh of some swordfish can acquire an orange tint, reportedly from their diet of shrimp or other prey. Such fish are sold as “pumpkin swordfish”, and command a premium over their whitish counterparts.

Swordfish is a particularly popular fish for cooking. Since swordfish are large animals, meat is usually sold as steaks, which are often grilled.

Almost the whole gang was here!

We danced several times… The shot worked!

We went home and enjoyed the rest of the evening watching a movie.  Tomorrow is Saturday and a busy 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.
