but my spirits are high. As I just stated, it is raining here, and has rained for several days now. The street in front of my house is still flooded. Not sure if the sewer drain is blocked or not, probably from the leaves from the big oak in my front yard. My daughter tells me that has always been a problem in different areas around town. Makes no difference, I was out and did my grocery shopping yesterday. This time at Food Depot where they had many name brand items on sale including Miracle Whip for $2.67 and Cool Whip for 77 cents. So I will stay inside today. I think I might fix some ham and beans although my Twin is fixing barbequed chicken for her son. I may go eat with them instead.
Just thinking, where I lived before for all those many years, when I looked out the back door I saw my garage, then if I walked out past the garage, there was my glorious alley. Some of you may remember the little video I did when I introduced you all to my alley a few years ago. Sadly, I don’t have an alley here. Now when I look out my back door in addition to the cemetery I can see major highway traffic to the right and to my left behind the cemetery I can see trains at different hours of the day. I am not far from the airport so I hear planes occasionally throughout the day too. I can’t help but wonder what Jim would think of all of this. Probably the thing that would interest him the most is the fact that the riverboat casino is just a few miles down the road from me on that major highway I just mentioned.
My son in law’s brother and his wife have asked me to go with my daughter and son in law to their home for Easter dinner. They are such gracious people. I was invited to their home for Thanksgiving and Christmas. This time will be special as there is a brand new baby in their family.
If I plan to cook some beans I had better get up and go put them to soak. Not sure yet if I want to make the effort.
I hope you all have a glorious weekend!
