You gotta love these one wheel cars, maybe uni-wheel!
Sherry says to me on the way back from the Theater at 10PM, “We need to stick with daytime plays.”
I agreed, and answered, “Normal people KNOW where they will be and buy their tickets weeks in advance and pick the day, time and seats they prefer. But we ain’t normal and too often fly by the seat of our pants, shoot from the hip and all that ‘not planned’ stuff.”
HOWEVER we do have reason to be in Lancaster. We do enjoy just being in the area. Sherry really likes chocolate and we know the owner of Miesse Candy Company and MUST drop by for the best chocolate around. It has no preservatives and is good stuff.
Then there is Joan and Dan. He was my boss for a while, and good friend in the USN. Joan was Sherry’s best friend. They actually live a couple blocks from President Buchanan’s home.
A visit with Dan & Joan is always a Joy on our stops here. Sadly that treacherous disease Alzheimer, has stolen her mind. She is amazingly friendly and funny. She was always a joy to be around. Our visit was longer than we had planned, it was a spur of the moment thing arranged by daughter Tracy, the owner of Miesse’s candy and Ice Cream shop. I will never live long enough to understand this mean disease. BUT amazingly we had a great time. It was so good to see Dan also. He was also a joy to know.
Joan and Dan were the only real dancers I ever knew. They took the house down at our NIPS parties. I understand they even did a little dancing lately.
In our family Sherry is known for her lasagna. Joan gave her the original ‘family’ recipe. Joan also taught Sherry to swim while they were in Key West while they were waiting for Dan & I to get the base moved from Albany GA to Key West.
I probably have introduced you to the other couple we know up here, Dallas and Marian, but I will bring them up again next blog entry.
