The week Begins With An “Offfff”!

It’s Monday, so get ready to experience one of my all-time favorite tunes!

5:00 am, and Alexa woke me up.  I had a dermatologist appointment in Los Alamitos at 6:00 am.  The freeways were empty, and I made it with time to spare.  Dr. Newman carved me up taking four biopsies, and I will get the results on Wednesday!

The sailing was great, and I made it back to Orange by 7:30 am, which gave us 45 minutes to visit the garden!

As usual, we were bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. After the gym and returning home, we went out to patrol the garden. That dastardly rabbit was at it again, but we’ve got everything it fancies wrapped up tighter than a burrito in wire mesh, so no munching on our watch! The little critter even kindly left us a surprise gift, which we promptly planted in the dirt!

The day was so hot, over 95 degrees, that Mary decided to stay inside with the air conditioning cranked up while I braved the heat to work in the garage. By the end of the day, I was sweating more than a glass of iced tea in July. I put the final rabbit fence around our cantaloupe – those sneaky rabbits won’t know what hit them!

My beard is coming along OK now.  Instead of Mary calling me “scruffy,” she now calls me “Gabby”!

At dusk, I gave up and came inside and decided to make a trip to Home Depot to get some tiny screws to fix a July 4th decoration.  On the way home, I got some burgers and fries and “cooked” dinner for Mary!

After dinner, Mary picked some sun-gold tomatoes for Jeff, and we visited him for a while. While walking back home, I snapped a picture of the homestead, all decorated for the July 4th celebration!

Red, White, and Blue!

We continued watching The Good Doctor and crashed around 10:30 pm.  The heat does us in!


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.
