On The Go!

Fact: The actual name for a hashtag is an octothorpe. The ‘octo’ refers to the eight points in the symbol, but according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the ‘thorpe’ part is a mystery.

Today we were so busy I forgot to take pictures and when I did it was hit or miss.

I do not say much about politics, but this one was dead on!

We worked in the office and then went to PT, and I got a double treatment as I somehow buggered up my right arm. On the way home, we stopped by CVS and then started working again. Mary found a recipe for “Simple Mexican Casserole”  I, of course, went into the kitchen to assist; it goes easier when two are working to make dinner.

I now know what Mary means when she says, “Chop Chop!” (These are from our garden)

Mary has mastered the stove; she can make that thing sing.

Hard at work!

I was delegated the “chip squisher”; a few minutes also, these were tortilla chips.

So, a guy walks into a Mexican restaurant and takes a seat. Before he gets to order a his food, the bowl of tortilla chips in front of him says, “Hey, you’re a handsome fellow.”

The man tries to ignore the chips and orders a soda. The chips say, “Ooooh, that drink is delicious. Great choice. You’re a brilliant man.”

Starting to freak out, the guy says to the waiter, “Hey, what the heck, this bowl of chips keeps saying nice things to me!” The waiter says, “Don’t worry about it; the tortilla chips are complimentary.”

I was the head chipper today!

I didn’t get a picture of the final product, but it was good! Next time, we are going to use Frito’s instead of chips.

Scout, The Wonder Dog, seems to escape the kitchen when we work; he is afraid he might be put to work!

“What, me work?”

I worked on “The Memory Book” on my website for a bit before crashing. We watched Roswell. It was 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.
