Hello Friday! How Are We Doing?

Family…Friends….Fun…Fridays. All good things start with “F.”

It’s a beautiful day in the hood!

So I have been on this planet for 75 years and have eaten Chinese food almost as long, but I never knew the box we reach into with chopsticks could become a plate by merely opening it up (as shown below)!  We always wondered why the container seemed to complex, and now we know!  Dang!

Wow! Whoda thunk?

We decided to go to Taco Surf for lunch as we have had enough pizza!  It was wonderful!  Crispy taco’s are my favorite!  We were terrible and decided Coldstgone Creamy was getting lonesome and may go out of business without our daily contribution. So, we did a fly-by and got our goodies to go!!

Juan, our car wash guy, was due at our house at 1:00 PM, so we had to skedaddle home!  He was right on time and did both cars, looks like a showroom in our garage and driveway.  The Grey Lady (our Avalon) is such a beautiful car even though she is a teenager these days!

We got our daily “batphone” call from Colleen, and we chatted for a while.  She sent us the latest picture of our great-granddaughter, Logann, who is ready to ride the open range and capture the band guys!

Ride ’em, Cow Girl!!

I hope that America will always have cowboys (and cowgirls) and Indians, but the crazy lefties try to stamp out everything American these days!  Yep, I had a cap gun, and no, I am not aiming at Tom.  In my sights was an Injun coming over the back fence!

Tom left us in 2017, and I sure miss him.  The open range does not seem the same without him!

My cousin Tom and I rode the range back in the late 1940s (I have the gun)

Sue took a nap, and I worked on the Topper’s newsletters, getting them ready to mail! At 4:00 PM, the physical therapist stopped by, and we lot some new exercises to keep Sue busy every day.  I am now a Personal trainer amongst the other monikers I have learned!

It’s 5:00 PM and time to get ready to go to the Elks and meet up with the gang, first time in a month with all the illnesses we have had.  It;s going to be exciting to catch up on all the gossip!

Irene, Donna & Bob, Marsha & Leon, and Andrea & Marcin were here this evening! Translation: We had loads of fun!

“Mom” was here, so we had to behave!

We returned home about 9:30 PM and watched Boston Legal and then crashed.  It has been a long week.  Ending it with a good series and tookies seemed like the right thing to do!

We are happy we did not have all the electronic garbage kids have to contend with today! Give us two cans and a long piece of string, and we were good to go!

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.
