1. What’s your favorite kind of cake?
2. What’s your favorite cocktail?
Jack Daniels on the rocks.
3. If you are alone for the evening, what do you fix yourself for dinner?
If it’s only me, I’ll make an omelette with whatever fresh or frozen vegetables I have, top with shredded cheese and serve with salsa. 
4. What make was your first car?
5. What is your height?
6. What was your least favorite toy as a child?
The Mod doll I got for Christmas the first Christmas my Dad wasn’t working because he had back surgery. My sister and I both wanted Barbie dolls. The Mod doll was an inexpensive alternative. The arms and legs didn’t bend and she wasn’t as attractive as Barbie. It was what my Mom could afford. One Mod doll each, and a Monopoly game we shared. My sister and I didn’t understand. I think we were 6 and 7 years old.

Black olives.

Chicago Cubs.

I’m waiting on the last season to be available, The Ozarks.
12. What is your favorite ice cream?
13. What is your favorite song?
Fleetwood Mac, Landslide or just about anything from the Rumours album.
14. What’s your least favorite chore?
Washing dishes by hand.
15. What was your first job?
I worked at a Midas Muffler that had gas pumps. My job was cashier in the booth (smaller than a Fotomat). In the summer I roasted, in the winter I froze. There were 2 space heaters, but the booth was thin glass on the top 1/2 and thin metal on the bottom 1/2. Every shift in the winter I was bundled up completely. Regular socks, thick wool socks, snowmobile boots, long johns, sweatpants, heavy jeans, thermal shirt, tshirt, flannel shirt, down vest, and a heavy parka. I could barely move, but I was as warm as I could be out in that booth. On the weekends I brought my small tv so I could watch baseball or football. I went to college full time and worked full time. I was allowed to do my homework while I worked, so other than roasting or freezing, it was the perfect job for me at the time.

Day 371-377 of Sheltering In

Saturday to Friday. We did not make a surprise visit at my father-in-law’s for his nasty wife’s birthday party. We weren’t invited as we have been in the past. My father-in-law wanted us there because he basically wanted back-up. Her family is always stealing his tools and my brother-in-law’s tools, so they wanted more “eyes”. We weren’t “officially” invited, so once we found out what the event was, we didn’t want to go. Sunday I had “my time” only for a few hours because my son wasn’t getting along with my wife. I told him to come hang out with me.

The weekdays were filled with PT appointments and my wife and son got the first of the 2 shot COVID-19 vaccine. Wednesday after PT I picked my daughter up from her group home for Easter/her 28th birthday. That girl has not stopped talking! And she’s talking so fast. Breathe girl!

Friday we are at my father-in-law’s doing laundry and having lunch. I have an awful headache. He is hard of hearing and ALWAYS has the tv volume up as high as it goes. When will I learn to bring earplugs? I do have them.

I have been so swamped with appointments and the pain aftermath that I didn’t get my daughter’s birthday gift. I have no idea what to get her. My son got her our village’s version of Monopoly. I’m really going to have to think. Maybe my wife and I can escape Saturday and go shop for something. Ideas?
