Yesterday I went to RR and purchased Harley Dude some special treats for his birthday. Then to the dentist where Liz polished the old choppers to a high luster. We always have a nice visit talking about our kids and grandbabies. Liz said she LOVES working on my mouth and could work on me all day. Thank GAWD that doesn't happen! I guess the reason she likes me is because I don't scream, cry, or bite her! LOL
PatC called and asked if I wanted to join her for Taco Tuesday at the VFW for dinner. Sure! I was just walking out and my neighbor's dog, Shiloh was at my gate. Sigh... Brought her in, gave her a treat and called Gerard. I said their "child" was here and I was leaving so could they meet me at the gate. I got her in the car, even though she was wet, but she was happy to find Maggie's soft bed on the front seat! Gerard walked down from his house and we switched leashes on Shiloh.
At the VFW they didn't have any chardonnay, or any white wine for that matter! UGH. So I had a dirty martini. It was pretty good! PatC and I chatted up a storm and caught up on 'stuff'. I ordered 1 soft taco and 1 hard taco for dinner. Only ate the soft taco so have reruns for breakfast! Back home, fire in the wood stove, a glass of chardonnay, fed the critters, sang Happy Birthday to Harley again! Nice evening.
Warmed to 59º yesterday. Pretty day. But, cold.
Today is the Law Enforcement/Fire Luncheon. Always fun.
Then birthday shopping for Sami's party on Sunday and
take a look at printers. Bout it. Nuff said. Ciao.
