A New Week Begins

“Sh-Boom” is an early doo-wop song by the R&B vocal group The Chords.  It was written by James Keyes, Claude Feaster, Carl Feaster, Floyd F. McRae, and William Edwards, members of The Chords, and published in 1954.

The week begins with telephone calls and visitors.   The first visitor was the refrigerator repairman.  The frig works fine, but it makes a noise.  It happened once before, the fan blade hit the back panel of the frig; the noise went away for fourteen months.

Mary called Ireland and made some appointments for high tea, and we waited for a phone call from an insurance man about changing insurance companies; he never called.  We will go to AAA today.

We didn’t leave the premises today except for a walk around the block.

We are now close to 1.0 miles!

After lunch, the refrigerator repair guy stopped by and fixed the frig so the noise would go away.

We watched some TV in the afternoon.  While Mary folded the clothes, I put on the latest in our ever-larger pillowcase collection! I also ordered for the 4th of July and Easter.

All the holidays are now “covered.”

On and off during the day, the latest Saratoga Road Trip website was finished.  Please visit the site. 

We talked to our daughter Colleen in the afternoon, and she told us of a series called “Fooled Once,” mentioning it was terrific and easy to watch.  Yeah, right.  After watching all eight episodes, we started it after the phone call and went to bed at 1:00 am.

I should mention that I slept in the He-Shed this evening.  Well, I did it to myself.  While unpacking from the trip, I saw a spider in the bottom of the suitcase.  It was one of those we took to Bar Harbor to scare people.  I hid it in my hands, and when Mary walked by, I yelled real loud, and Mary bumped her head on the ceiling while shrieking; oh, I did yell “SPIDER” and threw it at her.   I will not do that again; the He-Shed was not heated!

Mary, being the loving wife that she is, allowed me back in after thirty minutes.

We talked to Colleen on the Alexa, and she suggested we watch “Fool Me Once”; we did.  We have to ignore Colleen’s wonderful suggestions!

Fool Me Once Summary: Maya Stern is trying to come to terms with the brutal murder of her husband, Joe. However, when Maya installs a nanny-cam to keep an eye on her young daughter, she is shocked to see her husband in her house.
