I think it was 7 am, in my partially awake state, that I noticed Bill getting up out of bed. Today is Friday, Mar. 23rd and maybe a mark should go on the calendar because seldom does he rise before me. I did my leg stretches, I actually find they help me to avoid the ‘creaks’ and aches I otherwise would have.
|Pretty start up|
Once we were up, our little sleepy head decided to crawl out from under the covers too. It was a beautiful 59F when I stepped outside to snap this morning’s brief appearance of the sun. Even though it was to be a warm day, the clouds and wind were going to keep a handle on those temperatures. The day didn’t bring too much excitement but that doesn’t mean it was not a good day.

and it was put to good use over the last couple of days
with spring break
First, after our morning brew, grapefruit and then bacon and eggs we got washed up and drove into the Walmart in Grove. We needed a few veggies and some dairy stuff, of which is the best price at the department store. We treated ourselves to some ribeye steak and that will do us for 2 meals. Our appetites just aren’t what they used to be.
When we returned, I went for a walk with Clemson or was that before we went to town? I can’t recall. That is what happens when not much goes on and I don’t write throughout the day. Bill did some visiting with the neighbour, Ron and George and I replaced the carrots and celery I’d borrowed from George. I also thought his kind gesture warranted a taste of my vegetable soup so I took a small jar over for him to sample.
|So, this big Oklahoman is trying to tell us something|
The rest of the day, I was inside reading my book. I was in a world of my own and Clemson snuggled beside me the whole time. He slept through his dinner time too, not needing it until close to 4. When Bill came in, we changed into something more presentable and Loree and Ron rode with us in Black Beauty. We followed George and Suzie over to the Cherokee Casino for their Prime Rib special.
We had decided to eat first before playing the machines but when we discovered their special wasn’t served until 5, we all hit the machines and spent a bit of money. It wasn’t a lucky night for any of us, well other than Suzie finding a quarter in the parking lot. Bill and I played a total of $16 and lost it quick enough and by then it was 5 o’clock.
|The Ladies' bathroom is pretty nice, I must say|
The restaurant was busy and we had the same pleasant waitress we had on Wednesday. Loree ordered the chicken quesadilla which looked good and I had their catfish dinner which came with hushpuppies and key largo. I had to ask what that was and she explained that it was a mix of green string beans and two varieties of carrots. They were good.
|Starting the dinner off smoothly|
This was my first taste of catfish and I must admit that I liked it very much! Now, I won’t hesitate ordering it again or picking it up in the grocery store down here. Everyone else at our table ordered the prime rib in varying stages of ‘doneness’. Bill and I had Caesar salad for an appetizer and a Pina Colada which was oh so creamy good.
|Lots of food, so half of it came home|
The food was great but the company was better. We had a lot of laughs and truly enjoyed the comradery with our server. We left the casino lot at 6:30 or so and settled inside for the night. I had some of my soup today for lunch and must admit that I’m getting better at this. I found it quite tasty and put the remainder into a container. It will do me for a couple more meals.
|A fun time with friends at dinner|
Loree, Suzie, George, Ron, Bill
As I said earlier, this has been a fun, quiet type of day. I hope you can say the same.
