Friday night in almost retired land.

Friday night is kind of our date night still. We meet in the lane way after work and drive the few blocks to our favorite restaurant in town for a couple sodas and some Lake Erie Perch caught fresh today. A well deserved treat after our hard week at our jobs.
We walk into the Buccaneer Restaurant and the girls greet us. Normally we sit at the same table. Our sodas magically appear. (Who am I kidding? Dick's double white rum and coke and mine with coke and tequila!)
We sit for a couple of hours chatting about our week's. Sometimes some friends will sit with us and we will yak and yak. Tonight we exchanged stories with Rick and Brenda about Car shows and Zephyrhills, Florida.
Here we are after our busy, long evening back home sitting in our lazy boy chairs, me on the laptop and Dick surfing the TV. Soon, I will hand him the Mac Book Pro so he can surf Ebay and he will hand me the remote for the TV. We will watch Ghost Whisperers.
A couple of hours of TV watching.. (hopefully I can be awake long enough for Diner's Drive-in's and Dives..) and we will go to bed.

Another perfect Friday night with my beloved Dick. Life is sweet!


  1. Yes, it does sound sweet. How nice to have a Friday evening together! Keep it up when you don't have jobs any more, you won't regret it!

  2. Your date sounds perfectly wonderful! This is very much the way Jim and I spent out Friday evenings before we retired and still do! (Although I think Ghost Whisperer is getting a bit hokey these days. Ha!) We surely do enjoy the sharing of time! Have a great day! Coralie


I can only be better from your comments...thanks!
