The tour continues.....

7:59 am - Sunday - April 15th - SoCal - 59º F, 25% humidity, wind 2 mph out of the north by northeast.....overcast with a forecast high today of 80º F......cooling down once again.  Will be back into the 60's by Monday.

Saturday would be the hottest day in the current 'warmup' hitting around 85º late in the afternoon.  Since I am not inclined at this point to ride my bicycle after last Tuesday's mishap until I am sufficiently healed TLE and I decided to take a walk for our daily exercise.  We began our walk sometime just before 9 am.  Initially we were just going to walk around the block because I wasn't sure how my ribs might feel, but after half a block I felt fine and we continued east on Rialto Ave. all the way to Cactus.  We then hung a left up to the PET*, then left again on the PET* all the way back to Maple, and the Fontana city limits where we made another left turn taking us back to Rialto Ave. and our finish at the Elks Lodge having logged 2.8 miles in 50+ minutes.....


.....at first my injured ribs hurt from breathing deeply, but eventually things loosened up and we were able to average about 3 1/3 mph for the entire walk.....not our fastest, but not too bad.

Continuing with our 'until next time' theme this week we agreed to meet our oldest daughter Meredith at a local Claremont eatery named Burger Bar (Foothill Blvd. and Claremont) for an early lunch at 11 am......



.....we pulled into the parking lot right behind Meredith (she is so punctual!) right at 11 am, and were sitting down to order within a few minutes......



......I ordered their BLAT (Bacon, lettuce, avocado and turkey) sandwich, and could only eat half of it before I was full.  It was stuffed with bacon and very thinly sliced turkey......it was delicious.  TLE and Meredith suffered the same fate as I with their entrees.  The portions are quite generous and we all ended up getting 'doggy bags' for the other halves of our sandwiches.  As always the conversation with Meredith ranged widely as we moved from topic to topic, but as it must be, soon it was time to say our 'until next times' to Meredith.

On our way east on Foothill Blvd. we decided to stop a a local Goodwill we had not visited previously.  I found no treasures to take home with me, but TLE did.  She has been turning over her wardrobe these past 3 weeks, and has found a number of replacement garments.  I'm pretty well set with my wardrobe and don't want to get rid of anything else, which I would have to do if I bought anything.  My drawers and closets are maxed out, and I am pretty happy with what I have.

Our next stop on Saturday's 'until next time' tour was my son Chris' home in upper Rancho Cucamonga where we would spend some time with him, Rochelle, Christopher, Cynthia, Ed & Linda (Rochelle's parents), Cynthia's son Daniel, and her significant other Daniel Sr.....

....Daniel Jr. is our first great granchild.  We had a lovely time visiting with everyone including Chris' in-laws, Ed and Linda.  It's always a bonus when you like your children's in-laws and we like Ed and Linda a lot.  We have been camping with them on numerous occasions over the years.

A little before 3 pm we had once again bid adieu to more family and extended family giving and getting many hugs as we exchanged our 'until next times'.  Our next stop was COSTCO and then home for the rest of the day.  By the time we finished our shopping at COSTCO it was closing in on 4 pm and time for us to head for the barn.

TLE spent some time putting away the groceries and breaking down a rotisserie chicken she had purchased at COSTCO.  I spent time taking an hour long nap, which I needed.  We spent the evening watching some recorded shows from a few days prior, as well as a couple of episodes of the NETFLIX series 'The Crown' and were in bed by 10:30.

Thanks for stopping by!
