Off To The Elks Between Errands!

I wake up every morning being just a little more in love with Dr. Mary!

We had a mission today, with a ton of errands to tackle. We rushed into the shower, dressed, and did a ready aim fire! The day started with a splash; hopefully, the rest will be less eventful!

Before we headed to the Elks, we had to make a pit stop at the Post Office to send off our quarterly taxes. Dealing with taxes always feels like a slow roast – the government takes 33% of everything we make and then splurges it on the most questionable stuff. We seriously need a superhero like Howard Jarvis to save the day!

From the post office, we went to Trader Joe’s to restock our wine supply. Turns out, doing errands is thirsty work! From there, we went to Dianne’s house to drop off some veggies and her Irish travel gifts, but on the way there, we stopped at the dry cleaners. Because nothing says ‘fun adventure’ like running errands, am I right?

As we came up the driveway, the Clampetts had just arrived.

Uncle Jed was at Dianne’s, so we visited.

We went down the hill and off to the Elks for Girls Night Out. Today, we had George, Bob Carlson, Iris, and Will because Capps was on vacation, and the Zs were just returning from back east!

Iris is always in rare form! She will be 98 on December 31st!

Departing the Elks, we are back on our continuing mission!

First, we went to Home Depot to see what veggies they had that we needed. We filled the back of the Silver Fox with greenery!

“Hey! I am NOT a pickup truck!”

We had to hightail it home by 2:30 pm because Juan was swinging by to inspect our sad excuse for a car fleet. Let me tell you, all three cars were dirtier than a pig in a mud bath!

After an hour, the cars were new looking and shiny like a dine in a goats butt.

We are not done yet. At 4:00 p.m., Dru popped over, and we visited, taking her to the back forty and filling her with a bag of veggies! She enjoyed visiting with us.

Nope, I’m not done yet.  AT 5:00 pm, Robin popped over to stay the night and assist us with the upcoming birthday party!  We were so tired from errands that we decided to go to Renada’s for dinner.  Besides, Luigi needed to have some fresh spaghetti to top off his dinner,

Scout, you are one spoiled baby!

Of course, Mary had the veal.

Robin went for the salad!

We brought a plate of food to our neighbor Jeff and left it at his door. By the time the sun set, we were more tired than a cat after trying to catch a laser pointer.

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.
