My Queen had a most fitful night last night….. and trying to be helpful and comfort her, I stayed mostly awake rubbing and patting her which seemed to help – so it was worth it. When I felt her finally settle into a decent sleep – I went ahead and got up….. it was about time anyway. My Queen managed to get in a couple hours of sleep before she finally got up and stayed up. “Doc” answered Angie’s email and called in an arsenal of stuff for her. After we had our coffee and I made sure Angie was good to be left alone – I took off to run some errands and pick up Angie’s scripts once the pharmacy texted and said they were ready.
I drove to mid island….. I had to hit the electronics shop for a new remote for the TV. I guess when one thing goes – it all goes. Turns out, the entire middle chunk of the island was experiencing a power outage. Traffic lights were out, none of the stores had power (which meant no internet–no internet means cash only transactions)… As it turns out, the store had the remote I needed (and cheaper than ordering it from the states) and as I discovered…. the remote was $25 and I had exactly $25 in cash on me. Hot Durn~! First task completed successfully. I normally carry quite a bit of cash on me [for just such occasions], but had forgot the the tow truck driver for my truck the other day was $90 [cash only] and I emptied most of my wallet for that….. so I lucked out. I grabbed my remote and hit a small back road down the side of the island to by pass that god awful mess I drove through coming down.
I cut back across and swooped into the grocery store parking lot. My Bride had requested multiple items and I was all to happy to get them for her. Put my mask on and shopped like I knew what I was doing. –AND– actually found everything on her list~!! [my bad, I was just reminded I forgot her cough drops) but still…. Of course I left all the big, strong, reusable, shopping bags at the house, so I purchased a couple of more. (I should be able to start re-selling them before to long) Got the truck loaded up and headed just up the road to the pharmacy. After a 46 minute wait in the drive through….. I gathered up my stuff and pulled out. Thinking I was short something I called Angie to confirm, but with no answer (she had the phone off taking a nap) and groceries getting warm – I headed back to the house. Everything unloaded and half put up before Angie heard me and got up. They shorted her one item…. DAMMIT EMMIT. A couple phone calls…. and off I went again to pick it up. Came back to discover the one item I needed from there was forgotten completely. DAMMIT EMMIT….. too tired, too late… I’ll get it tomorrow. Stopped by the Post Office. I had a notice from them saying my light was in for my camera….. but…. I’ll have to come back tomorrow to get it (don’t ask). Also stopped by the dive shop and picked up some gear that I had worked on….. I need one more thing back from the dive shop and back to the post office–and– my Queen to heal up (not necessarily in that order) and I can get back in the water~!!!! But that’s another day.
Good Night Y’all * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Thankx for stopping in~!
