Good 22º (again) frozen morning. Pretty sky ..... and Mr. Moon...
So........... yesterday was Friday the 13th and we're not supposed to be superstitious. Well, fuey. I am! My friend 'Seal Beach Judy' had a dead car battery that delayed her day. Then after returning from the market with a 6 pound chicken to cook, my crockpot DIED! I immediately ordered one from Amazon and cooked that danged chicken in a cast iron enamel pot...
My new crockpot will arrive on Tuesday.
Felt sort of out of sorts all day. ?? Didn't go to the Marine Corps League dinner/meeting. Stayed in. Had a fire. (Thanks to Jason, he stacked wood for me) and just chilled out. Snoozed in my chair.
Today is going to be 'Martini Day' at the Mediterranean. Jeannie, Billy, and I will ... in a most ultra-minor unassuming quiet reserved secretive merciful discreet laid-back and unpretentious benign over-simplified way, celebrate his birthday (which is tomorrow) and toast to his good looks, suave and debonair ways, and good taste in women! (Boy, what a crock! ... the part about the suave and debonair! You do have good taste in Jeannie~! Love you Bill!!!) We will also watch FOOTBALL! Saints vs 49ers and Patriots vs Broncos. GO PATRIOTS!!!!!!
I was in the bank yesterday, wearing (of course) my Patriots jacket, when a gentleman said, "Good luck tomorrow." I had no clue. Thought he might have thought he knew me. Not. It was my jacket. OK, I get it now!!!
