Thursday; You Know What That Means!

Happy Thursday! P.S. It’s almost Friday!

Life is so very good!  We awoke and headed to the swim spa at a bright and early 6:30 AM with our coffee in hand!  We have a busy day planned, starting with walking Five Miles! During our walk we captured two interesting photos.

We think he is giving us directions, to go back from whence you came!

We keep walking and more interesting things appear!

Neat idea! We may have to do something like that also!

After walking Five Miles, we decided we would get the fireplace in shape for the party!  That starts with taking pictures of what we have, yuch!

We are going to the fireplace store today!

Now it is off the “Girls Night Out,” and we never know who will be there! Today we had Bill, Will, George and of course Ronnie!

George ‘splains things!

They made their decisions, and then we visited, telling stories about those things that never happened.

Bill and George placed their orders!

Ronnie popped over to get his dose of harassment from yours truly.  He is ex-law enforcement and a very talented DJ, amongst other things.  A day spent with friends is always a day well spent.

A good friend and fellow Elk, Ronnie!

Today they had a rack of lamb on special, and they had only four left, so I put dibs on one, and we shared. A rack of lamb is the equivalent of a standing rib roast of beef. It is the portion from which rib chops are cut.

I quote from a 1936 cookbook, “That part of mutton called the rack…is cheap food. It is not more than four or five cents a pound; four pounds will make a dinner for six people…If your family be small, a rack of mutton will make you two dinners….”  I should have shown this to the chef!!

The Elks Lodge has amazing food!

Mary went for the sandwich, and we shared it!  It was delicious!

Rack of Lamb and it was fantastic!!

We headed home via the fireplace store, and we were disappointed, so we will call our interior designer and get the heat turned up on this remodeling activity.    In the afternoon, we were doing chores when the phone called, and it was Miss Vicky.  She and Irene went to Roger’s Gardens and called to see if we were home.  Indeed we were, and they visited for quite a while; it is ALWAYS pleasant to visit them!

Remember, Friends, are gifts you give yourself!

We visited upstairs in the Ballroom!

We crashed and watched an adventure movie with Bruce Willis.  Tomorrow Mary does NOT work, yeah!!

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.
