A Sloooow Day, It Was Needed!

Today was again laid back! We went to our son Joe’s house, where he is rebuilding a sand rail. We watched him to the front suspension before we departed back home.

He remembers he and I rebuilding the blue sand rail almost fifty years ago!

Returning home, I planned to take a short nap.  The blood pressure thing is tiring!  When Chuck and Lisa returned, we decided to stay home and not go out to eat.  Mary pulled out two steaks from the freezer.   We were given a box of steaks by Diane and David, and those steaks are amazing!

Visit Harris Ranch (Scan the QR Code)

Did You Know? Founded by Jack Harris in 1937, the Harris Ranch Beef Company (now operated by Jack Harris’ son John) was originally a cotton and grain operation. In the 1970s, the ranch opened a burger stand near Interstate 5.

The farm also operates an inn and restaurant, raises fruit and vegetable crops, and breeds thoroughbred horses. Overall, the operation has more than 400 employees. Approximately 14,000 acres (5,700 ha) are devoted to garlic, broccoli, pomegranates, and tomatoes, among 35 types of fruits and vegetables.

During the war on terror, volunteers from the San Joaquin Valley, especially Bakersfield, supplied with beef from Harris Ranch, have volunteered to serve steaks to service-members who are OCONUS

Life does not get better than this!

We popped over to the market and got some groceries, plus we took Mary’s bean soup to Jan.  At Jan’s, we had a glass of wine while bringing her up to date on everything.

Returning home, Mary made a salad from our garden.  Chuck barbequed the steaks, and I set the table.  Lissa was getting ready for the celebration of life for her sister planned for Sunday.

We sat around and talked for a couple of hours.  Quality time!!  Oh, we also made cherry flavored ice cream and I used some of the remaining Polish sour cherries from our last Perogi adventure.
