The past couple of days have been busy. Yesterday we spent the morning at the Pickers jam session. Then we grabbed some lunch with Dick & Pat, after which the guys went home and Pat & I joined several of the Pickers at a couple of gigs. We played our monthly gig at an assisted living facility and then an Alzheimer's facility. By the time we left the second gig, it was about 3pm. Pat and I were ready to be home!
Last night Randy had the first of his three Pops Christmas concerts, this one in Bay Minette which is about 25 miles north of us. He said it was well-received and I'm sure it was. I can't wait until next Tuesday when I go to the last concert. Last year's concert was wonderful, so I know it will be a good time.
We finally got to go to the bank and the grocery today. We'd put off doing our first-of-the-month errands because the weather's been so nasty. And going to the grocery in the rain is just not fun. We were trying something new this month - going to WalMart in Florida. Pat had mentioned that there is no tax on food in Florida. Since we have to go to Pensacola once a month for our banking, it's an easy deal to do the big grocery run then, too. And there's a WalMart just down the street from our bank - convenient, huh? :)
Dick & Pat wanted to go with us, and since they have exercise at the Y in the morning, we didn't get on the road until 11am. We had a bunch of errands to run, too. Had to fuel up, go to the post office, the bank, the grocery, and get propane tanks filled. We finally got back home a little after 4pm. Once we got all the groceries put away, it was after 5pm! Whew.
We had a neat lunch, though. We stopped at the Roadkill Cafe in Elberta. This restaurant is so very unique. They are only open for lunch, which is a buffet, and stay open until they run out of food! That's it. And the place was packed. We got there a little before noon and left about 12:30 or so and the "closed" sign was up. They don't waste food, that's for sure. And it was all hot and tasty.
The weather forecast is called for it to be COLD. Ugh. And some places are supposed to get some snow. Hopefully, not here. That is NOT what we signed up for. :)
Until the next time . . .
