It was a lazy day at home. The promised rain never materialized, but it was overcast and damp none the less. I’m not sure if the temperatures ever made it into the sixties which made it feel chilly most of the day. So, we just sort of, kind of spent most of the day hanging around the house trying to keep snug and warm.
However, we did go for a morning walk where we encountered aunt Wilma who was out walking Franklin, her
Bichon Frise puppy dawg. Along the way we stopped by Jack’s Grocery to pick up the latest edition of The Republican Journal. Dad was the Publisher right up until he died in January of 1991. The Republican Journal is Maine’s oldest weekly newspaper (since 1829). It felt good to just sit back and read “The Journal” once again.
For last night’s meal, Mike and I prepared a nice dinner of Royal Red shrimp, new red potatoes, and fresh picked fiddle head greens. Top that off with a nice slice of Shauna’s coconut white cake and cold glass of milk and you gotcha self one heck of a meal, mistah!!! That dang shrimp is some ol’ delicious. After eating that, lobstah will never be the same.
The rain moved in over night and is supposed to continue on throughout today and tomorrow, yuck. I was hoping to get some beach time while here. Maybe Thursday and/or Friday, but we have to get an alignment and new tires on the front of the truck. We wanted to wait until we got to Michigan, but the alignment is so bad that the left front tire has been scalloped too badly and vibrates like mad. We’ll need to get the tires first at one place and the alignment at another so it will take a couple of days. Other than that, we’ll just be making up the agenda as we go.
So, BBFN and May God Bless - - - - - - - -
