What a Day!
Retirement isn't what you think it is. Take today for instance.
First up was my 3,000 mile oil change for my red 2010 Subaru Forester.
Then a stop at Ace Hardware to return rope lights that we way too bright for the soffit in out kitchen.
Then after that a trip down Rt. 113 to the Delaware DMV to get my car inspected and renew my registration.
Then to my barber (Hyatt) to give her and install the other box of rope lights to put around her step up to the barber chairs. She moved to a new location that there is a step up that us old men are bound to trip over when approaching the barber chair. That little job took over an hour and left me soaked in sweat on this very hot and humid day here in southern Delaware.
Then back home, soaked, to pick off the latest batch of Japanese Beetles to put in a jar of soapy water to die. Yes, this is that time of year when the Japanese beetles attack and devour my roses and Crepe Myrtle trees.
After installing those rope lights at my barber's shop, I took advantage of being in Lewes and made the rounds of some restaurants to collect their menus for our front desk at the hotel. I also stopped by the excellent Mexican restaurant Agave and got some of their fabulous pico gallo salad. Yum!
Whose says retirement is boring?
Tomorrow I take Bill for his dermatology appointment at the Georgetown VA.
I'm looking forward to some coasting time. And to some days when the temperature isn't in the humid 90's. I can't breath in this kind of weather folks.
It's all good folks. I'm basically healthy and for that I am thankful.
