Finally Friday Arrives

A friend has gone into business fixing car ignitions.  It’s a start-up.

Wow!  Mary has the day off, so we took advantage of that and did nothing!   We stopped at Hof’s Hut for breakfast.

Mary in her work uniform!

Scout came in and sat underneath our feet as we had breakfast!

Well, nothing means we went to my house and started the packing process.  While I wandered about inside, Mary watered the gardens, which pretty much takes up the entire morning and most of the afternoon.

As we looked through my closets, MAry suggested we went the alcohol-free champagne to Vicky for tomorrow’s celebration!  Fantastic idea.

More things I do not have to pack up and move!

While watering, Mary spotted two Artichokes which were more than ready, so they came home with us!

Mary told me a story!

One day two artichokes, who were best friends, were walking together down the street. They stepped off the curb, and a speeding car came around the corner and ran one of them over.

The uninjured artichoke called 911 and helped his injured friend as best he was able. The injured artichoke was taken to emergency at the hospital and rushed into surgery.

After a long and agonizing wait, the doctor finally appeared.

He told the uninjured artichoke, “I have good news, and I have bad news. The good news is that your friend is going to pull through.” “The bad news is that he’s going to be a vegetable for the rest of his life.”

At 4:00 PM, we cleaned up and went to Patty’s Place for a little drink and an appetizer. We departed Patty’s and met up with the Capps at 8:00 at Hof’s Hut.  We ate again, which we should not have done this late in the evening.  We were home by 11:00 PM and crashed.

I think the excitement of the week, buying a new home, and running around just did us in.

It is hard to imagine that I will own my home only for two more days; Monday, I become a  renter (for 30 days or less).

For some reason, I always have trouble renting trailers.  I can’t seem to pull it off without a hitch.
