Where Does, The Time Go--??

It seems like only a couple days ago since I last posted, but golly gee---!!? ----its been a month, and Judi is forewarding comments of concern about me.  I guess I owe everyone and apology, I sure didn't mean to give anyone cause for worry.  I'm just fine----really!!.

I have been busy getting to know my new Town better, or at least my way around and through it.  I must say the traffic engineer who laid out this little city knew what he was doing, lots of left turn lanes, and the stop lights are all sensored so that the light changes to accommodate the heaviest traffic at any given time, and that makes driving around town so much more pleasant.

Today I got up rather late, (9:00am), and went out to breakfast at Papa Pauls, as I am now in the habit of doing.  There I have my standard breakfast (two eggs over easy, hashbrowns and decaf coffee), and peruse my Investor Business Daily newspaper;  This being saturday, no need to hurry home and watch the stock market, so I used the time to explore Temecula a bit-----found the Green Arrow Nursery, and spent the better part of two hours browsing over various plants, shrubs and pottery, and finally selected a Hibiscus, and a decorate pot for my Patio (which is beginning to look like someone actually lives here and uses the patio).

Last Monday, was invited over to my Niece Melanie's for a steak Barbeque, and totally enoyed sitting on THEIR patio with the magnificent view of the San Bernardino Mountains and looking over the City below.  The Steak was most excellent and I finally headed home reluctant to leave , having become so relaxed and comfortable .

My other niece, Tish, mentioned she was thinking of dropping my here this coming week, which will be fun, will give me an excuse to check out another new eating establishment, called, "The Macaroni Grill", or maybe, "PF Changs", (no, saving that one to visit with Pete &Judi)---so mayhe instead will give "The Iron Wok" a try----or maybe that Nowegian restaurat-----hmmm ----decisions, decisions.

I am in the market to buy an IPod, but know nothing about them.  I understand they come in various levels of complexities, and its my understanding one should buy them from an Apple Store.  I have been told there is an Apple Store Outlet down in Escondido,  (about 35 minutes down the big concrete hwy from here).

My lucky streak continues at my local casion (Pachanga), I seem to win there more than I lose. and it beats watching rerums on Televison.  The biggest problem with the casion is, they keep the airconditioning so low, a guy could catch a real chill, and I feel stupid wearing sweatshirts when its 90 degrees plus outside, but hey, a guy has to be comfortable when gambling right?

Tomorrow, Sunday, I plan on having a late breakfast at Papa Paul's, and then heading down to the Town Library to check in my books that I have read, and get me some new ones to peruse.  I may also go back to the Green Arrow Nursery, and see what else I can glom onto for my Patio Ambiance. (I don't think the Mgmt will allow me to put in Tiki Torches)


  1. Howdy Gary - good to hear from you and to know that you are well and keeping busy. Thanks for the update.

  2. Salut Gary Old Dude,
    It is nice to hear that you have a busy and a pleasant life in Temecula and that you do not see the time to pass. Continue like this my friend and keep us posted some time to time...

  3. Your ARE alive! lol...I thought maybe you were enjoying life and just forgot about us here in the cyber world. Glad to hear you're doing good and enjoying your new digs and town. I, on the other hand, am not enjoying my new home of Pensacola, FL. I guess it's going to take some getting used to...but I really miss Tennessee.

  4. HEY! There you are!! Glad to hear things are great with you. Don't make it so few and far between, we like keeping up with your happenings!

  5. I have missed you Uncle Gary. I will see you on saturday at Ed's??

  6. So glad to see you post Gary. I've missed reading your daily posts.

    It's nice you are exploring your new town and discovering new things.

  7. Yes Judi, I plan on attending Ed's big gala, in honor of Aaron's visit down from Montreal.

  8. Busy, busy man. I figured that's why you took a hiatus from blogsville. I think it's wonderful that you are staying so busy and exploring your surroundins. Just stop by once in awhile and say hi so we know you're okay.


Speak up, don't be a nebish---your opinions do count.
