So I went in again today. I waited about the same amount of time until someone finally came over. I didn't say anything but I am considering shifting back to Osco. They aren't quite as close by but things always went more smoothly there.
CVS is like Dunkin' Donuts. They are all over the place around here. There are 10 Dunkin' Donuts in my city alone and we are not a big city, about 58,000. Their coffee is fine but the donuts are on a par with supermarket donuts which means the are low on the donometer readings. The small independent shops all offer superior donuts. Donuts are one of the few luxuries I allow myself. I get one when I go to work. A honey dipped cruller. Fortunately I don't work more than 3 days.
It's about 9 degrees, and that's here in my man cave (Insert rim shot here). The wind is gusting to 30-40 mph. Once again I congratulate the public works people for doing a great job on the roads. I was out for about an hour this morning and all the roads I drove on were down to bare pavement. Still there is plenty of snow piled up with more on the way. Maybe even another 12 inches.
Last night Arlene and I talked about our up trip to you know where at the end of May. We also talked about alternatives places to go. New Hampshire has many places all of which are within a 3 hour drive. New Hampshire is a beautiful place. I don't see myself ever boarding a plane again and that's fine with me though in fantasy I would like to back to Washington D.C. and to London.
That wind is howling out there so I go back in my mind, to the beach at Oak Bluffs at sunrise. It could be 65 degrees which sounds tropical compared to today. It's quiet except for the lapping of the waves. That's what we talked about last night, the week of our little trip. That's still about 3 months away.

That flag has been straight out all day.
I guess it's time to find something else to do. There's always something to do.
I'm outta here.
