Cloudy , Overcast, running into old acquaintances, and hockey, nice relaxing day.

Where are we today ?
        Pretty mild again today and no wild or rain, but no sunshine either. Just kind of an overcast day, up to about 60f. Got my morning walkabout town then at 8:30 took Suzie to Kitchener and dropped her at her Chiropractor. 
        While she was in there I whipped over to the Wholesale Club in Waterloo. I picked up our Winter supply of coffee enough for about 200 pots all individually vacuum sealed pouches. We have been drinking this coffee since I had my restaurant (from 1989 to 1999). This is a restaurant supply store that is open to the public. Used to be National Grocers when I started going there. While I was there ran into a lady (Doris) who was there way back then and moved to the new store. She still works there and I don't think she has changed at all. Have not seen her for a couple years. So we got to chatting, my how time flies. Of course I was a few minutes late picking Suzie up, she just knew I musta ran into somebody. Its hard for me not to run into people I have met over the years, after 10 years at the Bus depot, 7 years driving taxi part time, union steward for 5 years, My Restaurant for 10 Years and with the Optimist club for 18 years, that a lot of public exposure.
That's Doris as bubbly as ever
         Back home for a light lunch and another walkabout town, ran into a few more people, did some reading for a bit but just too chilly to sit outside very long. At 4 o'clock Suzie made a quick trip  up to New Hamburg to see her Mom and Dad, while I whipped up supper.
        Tonight some BBQ chicken thighs, acorn squash with maple syrup, and our salad, did the trick. I cooked up our last 2 cobs of corn to take off the cobs and freeze for another time.
        Then at 7 pm I can walk to the Plattsville Arena (about 15 minutes) and watch Grandson number one get a workout with his hockey practice. Suzie back to New Hamburg for a blue grass concert that she wants to go to with them while she can at the retirement home.


         Back home by 8:20 (nice night for a walkabout town)  and Suzie at 8:40.  Time to put our feet up and relax for a bit and will see what tomorrow brings.
         Thanks once again for taking a peek and hope you had a wonderful day too.

  3. It's a mixed blessing when you know everybody. Tough to get anything done.

    1. Thats true, but never in a real hurry anyway.
      We do manage to actually not run into people as much when we on the road.

  4. I think we men have a great time when we run into old acquaintances and friends. We enjoy talking and exchanging news. You are not the only one in this.
