I slept really well; the only disturbance was when I heard Bill getting up at 2:30 to let Clemson out. No excuse this time, he just had to go. It was 7 when I crawled out of bed on Monday, June 24th. I figured today would be a wash-out with a forecast of 61% precipitation. Probably an inside day so I scooted out the door for my walk. Bill had pre-empted me by getting up around 6 for his coffee. A hoody and my safety vest were all the outer wear I needed and even that was almost too warm.

picture to see what it is. It isn't a kildeer
I know their song

Seeing it in orange along the roadside was neat
Yesterday it came up as Eggs and Bacon on my plant app
which is very appropriate for me!

Bill worked on a new 30-amp receptacle on the back outside wall of the Bunky. This was for electric power in the Hangar. Kim and I took advantage of the lovely warm day before the rain. Well, as it turned out, other than a few spatters here and there at a couple of periods throughout the day, nothing chased us inside. We had fun just sharing stories and talking about hair cuts etc etc. Girl stuff, mostly.

When the guys joined us later in the afternoon, the stories changed but continued.
|Breakfast - yummy|
They are such a fun couple to be around. I had been communicating for a couple of days about an interested buyer for our generator from Marketplace. She was coming after supper at 7 and showed up on time. A young couple, happy to pay my asking price and when they left, we did the ‘high-five’ for another nice chunk of cash for Cancun.

After they left, we all thought we’d better eat but it was 8 o’clock so nothing heavy. Actually, Bill and I had plain Lay’s potato chips with cheddar cheese. You may laugh but with our afternoon embellishments, it was filling, tasty and just enough to tie us over until morning. To top the evening off, Kim and Ken joined us to watch It’s Complicated with Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. An old movie we’ve seen before but fun to watch again together.

Moist and wonderful!!
The night ended close to 11 and we were both off to sleep really quickly. Work calls in the morning for me so we set the alarm. We are having such great days and have plans tomorrow as well with our guests. I hope you’ve enjoyed your day too!
