I took this picture on the way home last evening. The sun was just beginning to set and I loved the way the trees looked as the last rays of the sun shown upon them. They made me SMILE!:)
We had a good visit with my Brother. We went to West Plains and had lunch, found the place to get the fish Mom wanted to eat for dinner, though I couldn’t get the potatoes she wanted and picked up KFC for our dinner. I really like their slaw. It has always been my favorite ever since I was a kid. Then we headed back to camp so we could let Lily out and my brother could see the Kodiak. It was a very good day.
Of course Mom waited till we left and then she got up and went outside to water the birds and get the mail. Thank heavens that in 2016 Norm moved the mail box up to the porch for her. That way she’s not walking out to the road any more. The bird bath has been moved closer to the house too. We are worried every time we leave that she’s going to get herself in a pickle that she can’t get out of. Today I’m going to let her know I need to do laundry and I hope to do it there so we can spend the day with her. Otherwise I won’t see her till late afternoon since we would have to go to Poplar Bluff to do the laundry and that is 60 minutes away from Mom’s house. As we are discovering there aren’t a lot of laundromats in these small towns any more.
We did locate the Post Office here in Van Buren and we stopped at Jolly Cone for a milkshake. The shakes were thick and delicious. We also found that’s a place that only deals in CASH! That is becoming more and more prevalent as we travel through these small towns. So we will have to carry some cash on us from now on just in case.
The other day when I went to Mom’s bank to get change for laundry, as I thought I would go to the laundromat, I had to give the lady my ID. I was in a hurry and didn’t notice that she hadn’t returned it to me. So yesterday she was calling Mom and my Brother every hour till I got to the bank and picked it up. She had laid it down on the counter and had forgotten to return it to me and was afraid I had left for Florida without it. So I do have my ID back and from now on I will make sure it’s back in my wallet before I leave the building.
Well I need to get a move on as Lily has been telling me she wants to go outside and explore. So coffee and a Lily walk are next on my list of things to do.
Hope all of you have a Wonderful Wednesday filled with Laughter and Good Cheer.
