I’m going to start my post out by saying Happy Anniversary to my hero, my husband Bulldog Man. As each year goes by, I love you more. Consider today’s post a certificate for one home-cooked meal of your choice!!!! And after eating this meal, I’ll let you do dishes (a gift from you to me)…………Bahahahahaha!!!!!
Friday, I did the usual; paid bills, hit Crest grocery store for some spices I didn’t have, and didn’t grow in my garden, and picked up what groceries we needed. After getting home, unloading, and putting away the groceries, Bulldog Man called me, and suggested we go out to the military base to meet up with some of his good friends he hadn’t seen in over 7 years. Over the past several years, Bulldog Man always talked to me about his friends, Lorri and Steve, in a positive way. I’ve always wanted the opportunity to meet his friends. This was the perfect time to finally meet them. I just wished my sweet husband, Bulldog Man would have called me earlier in the morning, before I went grocery shopping. I would prefer grocery shopping at the commissary instead of Crest.
Saturday, amazingly enough, we actually slept until 9:30AM, (this is highly unusual) but I’m glad we got caught up on our sleep. We both jumped into the shower, and got ready to head to Tinker AFB to meet up with Lorri and Steve. They mentioned to my husband when he talked with them to look for a motor home parked in the parking lot of the BX.
To our surprise, we arrived……. found the motor home, trailer, car, motorcycle, bird cages (their birds travel with them), and all kinds of spinners.
Lorri and Steve, Bulldog’s military friends, retired from the military, left a civil service job, sold their home, auctioned off all of their belongs, and decided to live life to its fullest, and travel the United States. When they stop at military bases for the night, if they feel like it, they setup their spinners for others to enjoy and buy. They do this for fun; don’t need the money to support themselves. Any money received is used to put gas in their motor home. This just sounds like so much fun, one day I would love to be able to do something like this. For now, Bulldog Man and I are destined to find acreage and setup our homestead.
Before saying goodbye to Lorri and Steve, Bulldog Man and I purchased a pig spinner and windsock with a 32 foot windsock pole (Bulldog Man has alternative reasons for purchasing the large windsock pull, he will outline this in one of my future posts). Lorri and Steve are headed towards San Antonio. If you happen to be on base, tell them we said “Hey”!

Before the rain came on Sunday evening, Bulldog Man and I went out to the garden to harvest some green beans. We were able to bring in enough green beans to add as a side dish to a meal. The peas in the garden have grown and even produce beautiful flowers. I’m still waiting on peas to harvest. Hopefully, it will be soon, before we get our first freeze.
It’s been raining a gentle, continuous rain, which should continue through Tuesday. Once the grass dries, I get to sneak out the tractor and cut grass (hubby will be at work, and he can’t hog the machine).
I hope everyone has a blessed Monday!!!
