Didn't go to the Military Whisk

Mike and Roberta picked me up a little after 5:30.  We talked about where we were going to eat (it was my choice) we had at least two hours to eat before going to Meriden.  I picked Outback in Orange.  Unfortunately Roberta’s sense of direction was a little off and we did some back tracking up through Pez Candy factory and came up that way.

  Unfortunately we had a 45 minute wait.  So we went to 477 West in the Allingtown section of West Haven.  Our wait was a little shorter.  We started off with potato skins, and we each had something different.  Well Roberta had potato encrusted salmon and Mike and I had half a rack of ribs.  I had fries and Ice Tea and water.  It was getting later than we expected and we had to take Mike home yet.

Both Mike and Roberta caught colds on their return trip from Arizona this past week. They both made an attempt to do this Military Whisk but couldn’t.  We called DebbieM to let her know we are running late and we would be there as soon as we dropped Mike back home.  It was nearly 8 when she called back and we would have been there shortly.  She called back and said that it would probably be better if we didn’t come because they were going to start. 

At that point we were in the Long Wharf section of New Haven and turned around and headed home.  We stopped at the pharmacy to buy some Alka-Seltzer plus cold med for Mike and then Roberta dropped me off. 

Mom was surprised to see me but she was even more surprised at the beautiful Native American Crucifix that I got as a gift from Mike and Roberta.  It has coral, Turquoise, Jet Black (?).  It was hand made by a Zuni Indian (that’s what is written on the box).  I looked it up and here is their history.

Since I have been home I have been watching TV, browsing the web, and getting ready for bed.  I think its time I get to bed anyway.  I am tired and not feeling so well.

Moved Slowly

This is a definite slow day.  This morning did our regular routine for a Saturday.  The kitties have been fed, and have been let down into the cellar,  I cleaned out the litter boxes, and went back to sleep with the TV watching me...get the picture?
Peapod arrive just after 9:30.  I didn’t need to see them as Sky was running up the stairs.  The driver pulled into the neighbor’s (Hockey guy’s) driveway.  I asked her not to do it she explained it wouldn’t be for long and she figured it was mine.  I just shrugged my shoulders and resigned myself to the fact she will do it.   Please for the love of all that’s right next time listen to me.  BEsides there was plenty of room in front of the house!  I got every thing that I ordered and put it all away.  Another list is already started for next week.
The weather sites got it wrong again.  One of them said we were supposed to get rain this morning.  It was supposed to start sometime after 8:30.  Need I have to tell you it never came?  The sun fin…

REally Busy

I am so sorry I haven’t finished the weekend entries.  I just was too tired and Monday was busy.  I know I have my Florida adventures to write up but again.  Not enough time or energy lately.  
I am looking forward to next weekend as I am meeting up with Siduri and we are going to spend the day in the city and visit Peabody museum and have lunch.  On sunday is baby Giada’s Christening and I am really looking forward to that.  I haven’t met Giada yet but from the pictures her parents and grandparents post she is beautiful.
WE had some late night rain last night and early morning rain today.  We may have more as the week progresses but that’s okay.  Meteorologist Geoff Fox began his second week at his summer Gig at Channel 8 this week.  His first week went well even with some first time hiccups with the technology.  He is having a blast along with his colleagues and fans.
I received a letter from my pen pal Debi in Tampa and I did manage to read the whole letter in one sitting.  She is kee…

Sunday Objectives

As i was finishing up feeding the cats this morning I walked into the living room and found what looked like a hairball on the window sill that landed on the floor.  Ick  I don’t know why they have so many hairballs.  There is two more around the house.  Cleaned one up in the office upstairs the other day.
I let them downstairs already.  I actually am not sure if both went or just Sky.  I turned around after finishing cleaning up hairball number 2  and tiger was just sitting there.
My other objectives today would include laundry and church and of course bingo.  I know you are surprised about the church but it's time I go back.
Nothing is wrong but this is proactive.  I feel that when I don’t go to church for a long time my whole center seems off balance and things go wrong.  I want to prevent that from happening.  Considering I am also on the Ladies guild Board now.  I best do it.
I talked with Mama Roberta Friday night for an hour.  She told me about her trip to Colorado and how she …
