Collecting Paintings

Collecting Paintings

Chuck Collie went with me to collect the paintings from the merchants today.  Chuck road his scooter while I walked along side.  We had a great time and good conversation.

At one point, I found myself almost saying, “Let me know if I’m walking too fast,” and then it hit me.  His scooter is electric.  Yeah, my brain misfires sometimes.

Couple from Utah

Saturday I ran in to a couple from Utah who were here as tourists.  The ran in the Pirate 5K.  I saw them at church yesterday too.  Today, Chuck and I ran in to them.

I love it when tourist actually spend time here!

HEY, IF YOU FUTURE VISITORS TO PALMYRA ARE LISTENING… WE HAVE LOTS YOU CAN DO HERE.

This couple were here for a few days and they immersed themselves.  I think that is great.  I hope they go back to Utah and tell their friends how much fun they had (which they did!)

Funny

This was a guy and his adult daughter.  She looked like she was perhaps in her 40s, and he looked like he was in his mid to late 70s.  As we walked away (well, Chuck drove his scooter away), Chuck motioned me to get closer and asked, “Is that his wife?”

I laughed and told him it was the guy’s daughter.  As a result, I could tell Chuck thought the guy was a cradle robber.

Mowing

The remainder of my day I spent mowing the lawn.  In addition, I trimmed some bushes back.  I am beat.  That hedger works great, but the arms tire from holding it at various angles to trim the bushes.

Collecting paintings this morning was easy and fun compared to whacking bushes.   I trimmed before I mowed the lawn.  That way, the mower mulched the stuff.
