» Saturday, May 21, 2016The Graduate and the Guys
We had a couple of errands to run before going to have fun, so after getting up at a time that still seemed too early and having breakfast, we went to Batteries Plus to get a new battery for James' OneTouch meter and the light on his cane, and also for my sonic screwdriver and James' cookie jar TARDIS. (This wasn't exactly a successful expedition. The cane worked at the store but not afterward, and although the batteries fit the TARDIS, it still doesn't groan when you open the lid.) Then we stopped at the bead shop. The man who runs it is going out of business and is still not doing very good business. He also sells models and James got two from him at 30 percent off, and I bought a couple of jewelry findings and a pretty stone to use in a project.
Then we went on to the fun: Aaron Lawson's high school graduation party. There's not much to talk about; we just had fun chatting with each other for a few hours—mostly about retirement, or wanting to be in retirement, or trips people are taking in their retirement. We snacked on finger food and told funny pet stories and funny Senior Prank stories (I don't remember having a Senior Prank in high school; is this a southern thing?).
We had to stop at CVS on the way home, but we decided to have dinner first; by the time we decided on where to go for dinner, it took us 45 minutes to get there. :-) We went to the West Cobb Diner and both had a turkey dinner, then stopped at Kroger to do the rest of the shopping, and finally ended up at CVS, as James wanted a new diabetes meter.
That was really it for the day. Low key with some fun in between.
