2018 July 03 Tuesday in Grimes Iowa

70° and mostly clear to start the day. 90° (real feel 96) by noon. Got to 95 mid afternoon and still 90° at 9pm.

First thing I did this morning was to load the entertainment center into the pickup. It looks like too big of a job for an old man to handle alone. But this old man knows how to use leverage (and brute force) so I made short work if it.

This is the same entertainment center that I bought for $5 at Goodwill. I decided that I wasn’t going to cut it down and make a coffee table after all. So now I’ll donate it back to Goodwill.

Ella had an eye appointment for 8am at Wolfe Eye Clinic®. We arrived about a half hour early. We went in the exit door and found a place to sit and wait. Right at 8 they called her to the reception desk to get her insurance information et cetera.

I think she looks like a spider from outer space. What do you think?

A stop at Burger King for breakfast.

Then we made our way to the Grimes Senior center

Wii bowling it’s very popular at the center. There are multiple teams that compete. At least once year there is Wii bowling competition between the various Polk County senior centers.

Ella and I played Rummikub when we first arrived but switched to Fast Track when Joyce got there.

Several people worked on jigsaw puzzles. These are very popular here also.

Caliburgers for lunch. What in the world is a caliburger? It was just a bland and tasteless piece of what may have been meat. Sometimes our meals are good sometimes they’re not. Never do they rise above good. They also told be carbo-loading us like they think we’re going to run a l later.

Walmart had four lanes open today! It’s been a long time since I’ve seen four Walmart cashier’s working at the same time. I read in Forbes that Walmart is reversing their Trend toward self-checkout centers instead of cashiers. I guess they discovered that customers didn’t want to become unpaid cashiers.

I worked 2-9 again. Thank God and Dean for getting the air conditioner running today.

Almost sundown at Cutty’s Des Moines Camping Club
