A friend sent a card saying Retired People are happiest cuz they can sleep in on Mondays. Still not sleeping in but – enjoying the quiet time.
It was balmy today and so, guess what Moffett did? He grilled a bunch of hot dogs and some Kielbasa. We’ll freeze and eat later. If you haven’t tried that – try it. The hot dogs taste and smell like they just came off the grill when reheated. It’s pretty nifty on a snowy winter day up here in New Hampshire.
We’re still working on the downsizing of our STUFF. Our church (and former employer) and other town churches have a local Thrift Shop where a whole bunch of our stuff has gone. But – I want someone with some “stuff knowledge” to look at some of our stuff and make sure we don’t throw out/give away something of value.
While doing some checking on eBay – I noticed a record reseller – called Wingo’s Wecords – and an antique store, RS Butler’s Trading Company, in Northwood, about an hour away from us. Road Trip! (Confession – we forgot Roady…) Saturday was sunny and 40+ degrees so off we went! It was a pretty drive with some awesome views across the state. We spoke with the owners, Colleen & Don, and we’re going to be taking some of our STUFF down. They encouraged us to see them before dropping it all at our “dump.” (You’re not supposed to call it the dump. It’s the Transfer Station.)
We have all of dad’s albums – including the boxed opera sets and assorted classical music albums. They are NOT in perfect condition… If someone is interested – contact me – because, we need to get rid of this STUFF.
Meanwhile – he who saves newspaper columns remembers that a restaurant in Northwood had received a good review so, even better – Lunch! Umami’s lunch was yummy. A talented guy was playing the guitar and singing and then his sister joined him. Kids were there enjoying the food and music and others like us who were there for the first time. And our lunches were really good! We’re planning another visit.
And this afternoon, we held our breaths, watching the Patriots win the game. If it had been any team but the Patriots, we would have rooted for the Jaguars. One of their coaches, Nate Hackett, was a friend of Kyle’s in high school in Overland Park, KS. He’s a talented young coach!
PURPLE TULIPS from the grocery store make me smile!
