Beautiful day today after the thunderstorms of last night, blue sky with fluffy "Simpson" clouds. It was an errand day, so the horses were hitched up and we headed into town. First stop was the bank where we worked out how to send £ sterling to the UK, very complicated since 9/11 'cause the government wants to know exactly who's getting the money.
Then popcorn shopping, I'm afraid we're addicts and go through a ton of the stuff, but fairly low calorie and no butter.
Then to Ace, you know, the place with the helpful hardware folks. It's the nearest thing we have to an old fashioned general store, ours even sells Avon. I needed white paint to do baseboards, I fear I have cleaned the paint off of many of ours and now I need to start painting them, again.
When we finished at Ace I suggested to Mac that we needed a reward so off to Plum's we went to have a banana split. Oh we were good because they were offering 2 splits for the price of one, but we just had one, with 2 spoons of course. Banana splits are kind of special to us, we use to go out to have one WAY back when we were dating. We went to an old fashioned looking ice cream parlor called Lois's that unfortunately no longer exists. So having a split makes us feel like teenagers again, plus or minus a few wrinkles and grey hairs.
Then it was off to the grocery store to pick up a few things and 2 ENORMOUS pumpkins.
A really nice day.
