I got a phone call last night from a number I didn't recognize, so I let it go to voicemail. Turns out it was from the owner of a local business here, a small coffee shop in town.

The owner wanted me to call them back because someone, who wished to remain anonymous, had paid for lunch for me and Matthew. She sent me the updated lunch menu and I emailed back what we both wanted. Our lunch was delivered today about 11:45.

Matthew chose the pulled pork sandwich with chips and a drink. I got their wonderful chicken salad. It has something in it that makes it just a little spicy and it is so yummy. Got a chips and drink too.

We both also got some of their wonderful banana pudding.

I have no idea who did this for us, but it was a wonderful surprise. I wish I could thank them.

Now I must figure out a way to pass this on to someone else. Spread something good around.

That was so nice. A while back the man in front of us in line at Wally World paid for our groceries. I thanked him. We didn't have that much that day usually our bill is around $200.00 or more.

Oh that was so nice Jude! I love to hear stories like that. We did that once for a lady ahead of us in line at the grocery store...she didn't have enough and was putting things back so I went up to the cashier and told her we would pay the difference.

I'm trying to think of ways to help others during this crisis. I would love to make masks to donate but not a good sewer and don't have enough supplies.

Connie, I was thinking about doing just that. Give the owner money for someone in need.

Carp, there are no sew patterns out there that use old t-shirts. I want to try one this week myself.

Will have to let you know how it turns out.

Have any of you been watching interesting shows on television/cable?

Matthew has me watching this show with him that I would never watch on my own. It has zombies in it. But it is also interesting in that it is a Korean produced serial in the past (not sure what years) after the Japanese invaded Korea.

It is called Kingdom and it's on Netflix. Only two seasons and we just started the second one.

Thinking about going back to cable. I so miss my HGTV. I do have Netflix. I watched about the Unabomber, Unbelievable, Ted Bundy tapes. I started watching Ozark but haven't gone back to it yet. I will have to look up Kingdom.

Darrell and I watch In The Heat of The Night each evening.
We of course have to tell the characters where they are screwing up as if they can hear us, LOL,

My den is upstairs and I have my sliding glass window open and right outside the window are the branches of our huge old Maple Tree. The birds sing and a breeze blows thru the branches.
I love this house.

I am so glad you love your home!!! It was beautiful here today but going down to 38. So I started a fire. I got 2 flower beds done with the mulching. And the boys especially Drake stayed around!!! Smile Smile

Going to try to mow tomorrow before it rains again. Sigh... I have areas I still can't touch.

Oh geez Connie, 38 degrees? I'll bet you are ready for warmer nights. But at least you have a nice wood stove to make cold nites cozy. I'll bet your fur babies love to snuggle up in front of it.

Thanks, Ornery.
Yeah it is dropping here at night too.
Rained and the wind blew all day.
I was watching TV  with my phone on the end table beside me. Suddenly it let out with a big siren about five times to let us know visibility was going to be 0. Scared the living hell out of me with the siren!

The temps really dropped here too. Not enough to put on the heat for us, as we like the cool temps.

Rainy today, so glad the grass got cut yesterday.
