So a while back David and I saw this woman on the news with a sign in her window saying need beer. She was looking out her window with a Coors Light in her hand. Coors ended up delivering her cases of her beer.
Well David and I don’t care for Coors but we do love our Troegs which is a local brewery in Hershey, PA.
This is David’s take on it. Do you think he will get some beer? Watch this space to find out?
There are things that aggravate us in this time of a universal crisis. There are some people and business that are sticking to the rules of social distancing and covering our face while others don’t.
First I will talk about business and people who abide by the new rules to try to stay safe from Covid-19.
We had to take our Harrison back to the vet for a recheck for his ear infection. I want to say that East York Veterinary does a great job of social distancing and the wearing of a mask. We arrived at the clinic and called to let them know we had arrived. Then when it was time to bring Harrison in I placed him in the between the two glass doors. After I was out the nurse came in and got him. Dr Gale called me during the visit to tell me what was going on. He still had the ear infection but it was getting better. After talking to the doctor we get a phone call from the office to pay by card. Harrison is then brought back and put between the two glass doors with his meds. There was no contact with any person. Great job done by our vet. If you live in York, PA and need a vet I highly recommend our vet.
What have you been doing while you are confined? I am glad that we don’t live in an apartment but our own home. We can hang out in our back yard when it isn’t raining. I am not complaining about the rain because it has really made our yard green. This meant we better go buy a lawn mower. We got a used one while using social distancing.
David picked up the sticks from the backyard with the help of Harrison.
Dan came up with a plan for our overloaded trailer. He rented a storage unit and as soon as we get to York, PA and unload him and David are heading back up here to get the rest of the stuff. I tell you I can see that the trailer and truck look like they are sitting better now. Dan said that the tires had rubbed holes in the wheel well and it was going to start throwing mud and snow up into the trailer.
Heather, Dan, Jim and David worked unloading things that we didn’t need right away. The wind was blowing and it started raining on them a little.
While they did that Linda and I had the hard job of taking care of our granddaughters.
Alice just spent the day kicked back.
Linda and I took the girls to the buffet at the hotel. They were so good and ate like big girls. Linda was having trouble with her phone, so we weren’t able to contact the rest of our group. Just as we received a text from Heather David showed up to tell us not to pack up and that we were staying another night. Linda and I finished eating lunch with our little girls, then it was time for their naps.
It was 2 before the rest of the party showed up. Heather was so frozen she had to take a hot bath to warm up. Then Heather and I did a little running around to pick up some apples and bananas which are the girls favorite. We also looked for some Halloween costumes for the little girls. We found some cute bathrobes that worked great, one was a frog and the other one was a bunny.
Before we went to dinner Heather and Dan let the girls go Trick or Treating to the grandparents’ rooms. I am not to sure they knew what was going on but the adults had fun.
We were all ready to have a good meal which we thought should include a steak. We went to the Sawmill which was close enough to walk, since everyone except us had something attached to the back of their vehicle, David ferried Heather and a baby and then Dan and the other baby to the restaurant because the wind was blowing.
After dinner we all walked back while David took Linda and a baby back to the hotel. It was a nice dinner and a good time with family.
David has lived in Alaska all his life and in Anchorage since 1961, so there were a lot of good byes that had to be said.
It started Tuesday, we had dinner with David’s brothers and their wives. It was a lot of fun. I love to listen to the brothers talking about growing up. Lot of hugs and promises to come see us we said bye.
On Saturday was his last concert with Anchorage Concert Chorus.
David has sung bass for the chorus 27 years. The last concert was the best one I have heard I believe. After some of us went out for a drink and food. We did not get home until 1. It was so nice to get to say good-bye to them.
Well it is time to start heading home. We decided to take the ferry from Port Townsend so the we could avoid Seattle. We kissed and hugged the family bye and off we went on our next adventure.
I was now going to be the driver because David couldn’t open his eye after the accident in Seattle. Now I guess I will not get to do as much looking around and more paying attention to the road. I guess it is David’s turn to enjoy the scenery and navigate.
We had a nice drive to Port Townsend where we were going to catch the ferry to Coupeville. I had made reservations on the ferry but we got there
We left our hotel at 8 but we had to gas up first. The gas is definitely more expensive in California than any where else we have been including Alaska. We also found out that it is cheaper if you pay cash, with a card it was $4.29
