I'm getting ready to take Dad into the city to pick up his new hearing aids! This is big as his hearing has gotten worse in the last two years. These ones have a remote control for the volume!

While there I will make my final stop to my favourite bulk food store - they sell everything literally from soup to nuts! And that is what I am getting. A 12 bean soup mix for my ham bone and some almonds and cashews for dinner!

I will also pick up DH's gluten free bread and buns next door and then Dad and I will grab some lunch before heading back over the bridge.

Got the new Deep Fryer setup and I'm off to the store for oil, veggies and shrimp. Tonights meal will be fried shrimp, deep fried jalapenos, and whatever veggies strike my fancy at the store.

I just made a four gun shop loop. One store I haven't been in yet was closed. The nerve, lol. Nothing caught my fancy.

So I am standing at the kitchen sink peeling apples galore. It dawns on me that I have not put any Christmas music on this year. So I go and get the TV remote and put on Channel 500 or something close. It plays just music, no action. It does give you the title of what is playing at that moment. There, that's more like it. So while I am working on getting the pie goods taken care of I also start cooking and rendering the salt pork for the corn chowder. Next come the onions. I am just multitasking all over the place. I go to get the cans of evaporated milk and cream style corn. Oh oh! Only one can of milk. Have to call son #1. I look at my counters. I need to concentrate on one thing at a time. It will have to be the apple pie. In the meantime I am enjoying the Christmas music. Perry Como, Burl Ives, Al Martino, etc. I am having a great time. Must go. Have to roll out the dough and cut our the little leaves for decoration. I am finally getting that Christmas spirit.

Even though you are out of school, it is amazing how smart you get as you age.

The old saying.

In school the lesson comes first and the test comes later.
In life the test comes first and the lesson comes later
