I had a whirlwind of activities last Friday, seeing several of my friends for the last time this summer.
Started out at 8:30 a.m. with breakfast at the East-West Grill with my buddy, Lory
Then I had time to go visit my little lady, Naomi, in the nursing home for my last visit till next May. I wheeled her outside so she could get some sunshine on her back…which she loves.
The flowers are beautiful
I got a big laugh when Leola told me she had a new customer coming in after me; “but I scheduled her a good bit after you because as a new customer I didn’t want her to think I cut everyone’s hair like I do you!” Oh, she apologized as she thought she offended me, but I just got a big kick out of what she said…I know my hairdo is weird…just matches my personality…weird!
Then it was time to have a late lunch with my friend and former boss at the high school library, Nora, and her granddaughter, Erica. I’ve known Erica since she was about 9 years old; she lives in Nashville, but is attending Adams State College here in Alamosa. We went to the Rialto Bistro, a favorite of ours.
That’s Giuseppe, the mascot
The two darlings
We ate appetizers so we could have dessert
Yes, it was all your, Nora.I had the tiramisu
Then my friend and co-worker at the public library, Salai, came over for a last visit. She lives in a house she built herself and loves her “critters”…1 horse, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 3 angora rabbits, 2 alpaca, 2 llama, 1 Shetland sheep, and 35 chickens. She combs her angora rabbits then “cards” the hair, she spins the hair into yarn, dyes it and then knits using the yarn. I admire the heck out of her….a real pioneer woman!
To end our day Rich and Terri drove down from South Fork to have our last dinner together at El Charro, a Mexican restaurant that has been around since 1936, and one Jim has been eating at since he was a little boy….the recipes taste the same today as they did then.
Wooooo, it has been a busy day, but one full of friends, sharing love and good food. What can be better!!!!!
Remember, you are loved.
