Just Working Around The House

Fact: That salmon is probably not salmon.  Researchers estimate that about one-third of all fish sold in restaurants and grocery stores is mislabeled—often to deliberately mislead consumers and get them to buy more expensive fish (getting tilapia while paying red snapper prices).  Snapper was found to be mislabeled 87 percent of the time, and tuna was mislabeled 59 percent.  It’s far too common an occurrence to be a fluke.

We have worked all day, well, from 8:00 AM until 2:30 PM, and it was just puttering!  I fixed hoses, moved boxes, moved the patio dining table more into the center of the patio, and watered the front yard.  Mary kept busy in the kitchen and fighting the never-ending battle of dirty clothes.

At 2:30 PM, we stopped and got ready to go to the gym for this afternoon’s exercise.  We did well because we both felt the “pain.” We went to Lowe’s to pick up some throw rugs for Scout;  he does not like the hardwood floors.  We scattered the throw rugs so his path from the front to the back of the house.

What do for our babies!

Scout loves walking on the rugs now!

On the way home, we stopped at Ace’s Bar and Grille and had their small salad topped with a slab of steak!  It was terrific!  We got the jukebox playing real music before we departed.

Returning home, we showed the new rugs to Scout, and he was happy.

We called Robin and did our nightly check-in.  Then we called Lee, made plans for this weekend, and talked to Crazy Greg before crashing.

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.
