In the meantime, we've continued to do the things we do.
Friday, Robin and Jacob came for lunch. We promised her a grilled shrimp meal, so this was the perfect opportunity, since Josh doesn't eat shrimp. We pulled out the last two pounds of large gulf shrimp which we'd carefully frozen when we bought it fresh in Rockport. Jim fired up his new favorite grill and I put together salad, potatoes and squash. Jacob got his favorite - a cheeseburger, since he's not a big fish eater either. We sure enjoyed that meal! Robin and Jacob visited for a while after lunch, but had chores they needed to get done.
Dinner was at Ann and Bob's, where we had more grilled shrimp and grilled scallops. We played cards, our regular games of cribbage, canasta and spades. The most noteworthy moment in the card event was the last hand of spades. I'm not a very good player - most often I'm the one with the lowest score. I'd had my usual hands through the whole game. But on the last hand, Bob got a monster hand and bid six or seven tricks. I had no spades at all and bid zero. That always throws everyone off, since the object then becomes to "set" the player who has bid zero. Well, I managed to pull it off and got 100 points, winning the game.
Saturday morning after the Weight Watchers meeting, Jim and I had breakfast with friends Gary, and Deb and Al. We all worked together and try to get together when we're back in town.
Then in the afternoon, we gathered up steaks, salads, veggies and cheesecake and headed off to Josh's house. Jim had the opportunity to use his old grill that he gave to Josh when we sold our house.
This is Josh's house:Here it is - the old Weber!:

We had a grand time eating and playing and visiting. But finally, it got to be time to come home and rest up.
Today, more adventure waits.
