It started out overcast and bitterly cold this morning. Forry had various readings, all in the minus category as the morning went by. Everything is definitely froze up in the RV.
There was a knock on the door. I opened it to find a red-bearded good-looking young man with an envelope in his hand. Turned out it was Tyler, the youngest son of our farm tenant, hand-delivering the wedding "save-the-date" card that had been returned to him from our Arizona address. It was so good to see him! We had a good visit, catching up on his activities since we had seen him last summer at his brother's wedding.
Tyler said the roads were clear (he was on his way to Spokane), so we decided to go ahead and head into town. We went on over to Ephrata, hoping to visit our friend Vic, but he was sound asleep. Knowing he would be unhappy if I didn't, I tried to wake him up to visit, but he kept falling back to sleep. The nurse said he had had a very busy day with exercise and PT and had been up all day. After a couple of futile efforts, we decided we'd best visit another day.
Next stop was the Safeway store. Man, was it ever crowded! We have never been there when it wasn't extremely busy. We have heard rumors that there is going to be a new WinCo grocery opening soon in Moses Lake. Hopefully, it will take some of the pressure off.
It is so terribly cold, we didn't dare leave anything in the car. By the time we got everything inside, I was very thankful we had picked up dinner at KFC on our way out of town.
