We woke up to rain this morning. Looks like it will be on and off most of the day. Some look at this as bad, me on the other hand, see this as a free car wash along with a much needed down day. Annette and Sharon look at it as a perfect day for shopping and they were off late morning to the Christmas Tree Shop. I did some computer work and managed to squeeze in a haircut and even a nap. We did hook up with them for Dinner at the Wild Cat Tavern in Jackson. They have a special on Wednesday’s, two dinners for $25 dollars. Many of the restaurants in the area offer like specials on different days. The Wild Cat has been around for as long as I can remember. When we skied in the late 70’s we would come with the kids, sit on the old couch and enjoy the roaring fire. Anyway we had the prime rib, which was outstanding, then sat and talked about our plans for tomorrow. It was an early evening and we were in bed by 10pm. We will see what tomorrow brings.

More rain last night and today. We headed out in the morning to get the oil change in the car. After that we did a little shopping and found some great deals at the polo store. We went back to the condo for a quick lunch and then we hooked up with Dick and Sharon to do some hiking. I checked the weather app on my I phone and it looked like the rain was over. Well, we were just a short way into the hike and it started raining. The I phone can’t be wrong; it’s probably a quick shower, so we keep going. Well, it rained all the way up the mountain and all the way back down the mountain. It stopped just as we returned to the parking lot. Anyone want to buy an I phone, cheap. I think I put that out there once already. We came home to shower and change cloths before meeting up with Dick and Sharon for dinner at the Stonehurst Manor. Another one of those two for the price of one deals. Annette and I have stayed here several times and never been disappointed. The rooms are very nice and the food is over the top, especially the breakfast. After dinner it was off to the Theater in the Wood to see The Rouges. The Theater is located a ways back in the woods. It’s a large white tent structure with seating for maybe 200 people. They have a BYOB policy that everyone in the place followed. The Rouges are a Scottish/Irish group that plays some excellent music, mixed in with some great humor. They are also very patriotic and raise money for the Wounded Warriors. You put that all together and you have one outstanding evening. And yes, we did adhere to the BYOB policy. Oh by the way Sharon did inform me that I have been spelling her name wrong. It’s Sharon not Sharron, so everyone take your whiteout and make the corrections. I haven’t made a mistake like that since Lucie with a Y.
