My friend Janet and I had lunch with our mutual friend and coffee date Wandering Dave at the senior gracious living facility where he resides. He's part of a Writing Club here and he'd invited the whole club along with me and Janet to hear and see his travelogue. It was fun, especially this takeoff of "My Generation" which led off his presentation.
Here's the original from the WHO
(if you don't like the WHO, you can skip this but the senior version might make more sense if you hear the original.)
And here's what Dave played for us. I was one of the younger attendees and it was great fun watching the reaction of the other guests. Proves we're not old until we think we are.
You Tube was being contrary so I hope the links work. If not, let me know.
We had raisin pie for desert. It was wonderful. Tasted like it had a layer of custard in the middle or maybe very light cheesecake. I'll see if I can find something like it online. If it sounds familiar to anyone, I'd enjoy the recipe.
Later on, Jim, Melissa, and Tim came over for an hour or so and played cards. Jim will go back to Southern California tomorrow. Right now it looks like his tour of duty will end in June and he may be job hunting. Who knows though what will happen between now and then. Certainly not I.
Elcie turned 15 on March 9. How do they grow up so fast. Happy Birthday (belated) to our Elcie.
Ray has been mentioning how much he'd like some roses around the yard so a couple of days ago I purchased two climbing bushes; one a medium pink, one bronze, and a shrub with small white roses. Also bought compost, rose feed and aphid stuff, an edger, and a digging implement. He planted the roses the same afternoon. Two are along our fence and the shrub is under my kitchen window. They don't look like much yet but I have high hopes. The other plants seem to be thriving (I don't get too close) and I'm looking forward to tomatoes and cucumbers later on.
That's about it from the San Joaquin valley for now. We've had lovely weather but it's supposed to drop down almost 20 degrees by weekend with the possibility of rain. Perhaps that will be the last gasp of winter and March will leave like a lamb.
Glad you enjoyed the blogging meme. My 72% was a little high. I misinterpreted one of the questions. I do not have five or more blogs. Diane holds the record so far with our regular visitors I think but I have a new visitor from Wisconsin (hi John) who scored higher yet.
Thanks for the visits and thanks as well to all who stopped by to visit my friend John on his new blog. I'm still trying to catch up with reading. Blogger has been giving me fits with access and this computer has a few minor glitches; especially with the script on the page running slower than my fingers. Disconcerting to say the least.
And I've been a little busy lately. Nothing major but the days seem to go by quickly and I'm not the insomniac I once was.
Take care everyone.
