Prescription and Back To Gram's Kitchen

DeBary, FL.

57 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = High temp. 76 deg. sunny, SW wind @ 5 mph.

Linda did a load of laundry yesterday morning while Jim fooled around with the computer. He's still refining our trip plan out to Oregon. He keeps finding new routes or places along the way that look interesting so he keeps changing it. ; )

Then, in the afternoon, Jim and Linda took CLT (Cute Little Truck) and headed to Walgreen's to pick up Linda's prescriptions. They had received a phone call telling them that they were ready for pick-up and sure enough, they were.

No problems this time. Everything went smoothly. : )

Jim's been fighting allergies lately. He's been doing some research and it looks like it may be the "Live Oak" trees that are causing much of his distress, and this park is full of them. : (  He's got some medication that helps, but it makes him drowsy and so he tries not to take it unless he has to.

Well, yesterday was one of those days, so he took his medication and then ended up sleeping for about 2 hours in the late afternoon.

By the time he woke up, it was time for dinner, so he and Linda headed over to the DeBary Diner, which is just a short distance from here. When they got there, the place was packed though, so they headed to Gram's Kitchen in Orange City and had a nice meal there.

Jim had their homemade Chicken Pot Pie (which is very good), and Linda had the Chicken Fried Steak, (which is also very good). Jim was able to finish his meal but Linda brought about 1/2 of hers back here and put it in my refrigerator.

The evening was spent watching TV and fooling around on the computers.

Today, I think Jim and Linda are going to go to the grocery store to pick up a few items. I know they need milk, bread and a few other essentials. It'll probably be pretty busy today, but they don't need much so it shouldn't be too bad.

Oh, before I forget!!! Please be careful if you're traveling today or tomorrow. There will be some people out there driving that have celebrated too much, so watch out for them.

Did you know that on New Years Eve, it is believed that kissing at midnight ensures that affections and ties will continue throughout the New Year? On similar lines, it is said, to not do this would be to set the stage for a year of coldness.


  1. I didn't know that "Live Oak" trees carried any allergies . Interesting. Hopefully you will get some relief soon.
    Wishing you a very HEALTHY and HAPPY NEW YEAR.

  2. Happy New Year to the Smith family from the Patterson Family.
