A Happy Lady

Yesterday morning started with a phone call from our friend Wayne. Wayne and his special lady Anita are the folks who took down our two hay sheds, and also stripped all of the old wiring from the barn. A while back Anita got a couple of my books and said she really enjoyed them, so Wayne wanted to buy the rest of the books in the Big Lake series for her. He also wanted to get her one of Terry’s cookbooks.

It was an Easter surprise for Anita, and when he took them out to their truck, she was one happy lady. She told him he might have to do all the work from now on because she’s going to be too busy reading. 😊

A short time later we got a call from Chris LaClaire, who we met when we were all fulltime RVers working the RV rally vendor circuit. We shared many adventures and good times with Chris and her late husband, Charles Yust, and it was great to hear from her.

Chris told me that she and her husband Perry are going to be visiting family in Alabama sometime around June and they would like to come to our area for a visit. We told her we are looking forward to it, and looking forward to meeting Perry. By the time they get here, I will have an RV electrical outlet installed at the barn so they don’t have to worry about a campground.

Later in the afternoon Terry and I drove into town for dinner at the Pearl Garden Chinese restaurant, and then went to Publix and spent a king’s ransom on groceries that should last us for a while.

Back at home, we put groceries away, then relaxed and watched television for an hour or so, before it was time to write the blog. The weatherman had predicted rain off and on throughout the day yesterday and said it would taper off during the evening. As it turned out, the rain didn’t really start until sometime around 11 PM. I’ve always said the only thing a weatherman can tell you for sure is what happened yesterday. Anything else is an educated guess.

Thought For The Day – I got a new phone today. My old one failed the swimming test.
