|I like this...|
Biting the bullet and going to eat at a restaurant with our youngest son this evening (Tuesday). We're going early (at 5pm - old folks time) before it gets crowded and this particular restaurant has high backed booths... so we feel fairly safe. His wife and daughter are the ones visiting our daughter (his sister) in the hill country... so he's on his own this week.
Also the serviceman for our Aga is coming tomorrow. With any luck, we will have our cooker up and operational in 24 hours. It takes about that long to heat up to where it needs to be (the 2 hobs and 4 ovens). I just pray that the ordered part fits and all is well.
We also did our Crime Watch Patrol this week. We missed doing it in February... either bad weather or whatever. There are about 5-6 of us that patrol our area and we each try to do it once or twice a month... driving down alleys and looking for anything out of the ordinary. We have a list of the houses and phone numbers and several "Crime Watch Patrol" magnetic signs for the truck.
The only thing we've ever seen 'out of the ordinary' when patrolling was someone once left a whole ham lying in their driveway! When we called them (which we do if we see any garage doors left open with no one around) about the ham, they said it must have fallen out of the car when unloading groceries (?).
