I’m following the Geezer around this weekend. His birthday is upcoming, and this year we seem to be celebrating it in stages.
A discount coupon brought us fish tacos and slaw at the Brigantine earlier this week. A long awaited game arrived, and his computer needs a new graphics card to play it properly. He’s been promised a trip to a casino of his choice also….remember this is the guy who won the cost of our honeymoon back at the Las Vegas tables. Two more coupons wait to be used, and the Jim’s are taking us to their favorite Italian restaurant Sunday night.
Birthdays are food holidays in this culture. When you are on Weight Watchers point program, it’s a problem. A tiny bit of cake from a 22nd birthday last night was probably ten points. There was a lot of mayo in the really good Brigantine slaw. More veggies and less fat is the name of the game.
So today we will pack sandwiches, bananas, and diet cokes with us when we leave the house. That will get us through Frye’s to buy the graphics card and an estate sale or two on the way to the Automotive Museum. While he works, I will go see the new show at the Mingei. I can comfortably walk a bit now, and this will be an exciting outing for me. Yes, I will take acres of photographs.
