Out And About Today
We're biting the bullet and hiring a private handicapped taxi, so that I can take my own scooter to the mall and to save Mrs. AOW's back from having to push me around in a wheelchair.
This area does have a paratransit service for the handicapped, but it left a friend and me stranded when we went to a gun show. A horrible experience. The paratransit service, I mean.
While at the mall, Mrs. AOW and I will also be eating at one of the restaurants there. I'm really looking forward to this outing! Especially with Mrs. AOW.
And I get another outing on Friday when one of the guys is taking me to the local VFW for a pool tournament. There will be food, food, food. And beer.
Mrs. AOW and I don't have a lot to buy on our shopping trip today. Our circle of friends is quite small since I had a stroke over two years ago.
We already got our wonderful neighbors their Christmas gift, thanks to Woodsterman. He made the walnut weedpot below to our specifications:
A unique gift that will look great in our neighbors' house! It's furnished with antiques, and our neighbors are partial to walnut.
