First week we got to Hershey we pretty much just went to work. We drive our mini golf cart in the evenings after dinner. We named it Stimulus.
We bought a rain cover for our little buggy, as we sometimes call it.
Jim also spent some time with his friend on the weekend I worked, and he got a load of wood. I got my flower pots too.

We both had off today. Didn't go anywhere all day. Jim got out the smoker then we smoked two chickens, a little pork loin, last a tuna steak.
During the cooking we had a quick visit from another Pa guy we were in 3 Flags TT with Dan and his dog Molly.
When they were finished be cleaned off all the meat from the bones. I put the bones in the IP, made two kinds of soup. First I made creamy chicken corn chowder, and smoked chicken beans and rice soup. Froze some of it, it was pretty fabulous. Now we have enough food for the coming week, or longer.
Over the weekend I got a message on Facebook from a longtime friend we used to line dance with. Sally and Joe Templin, they were planning on coming to TT Hershey for a couple nights in there MH.
I saw them come in Tuesday afternoon, got to say hi, but then I had to leave for work. They had their eight-year-old grandson with them. Wednesday night we had a fire and they joined us, they made some s'mores with there grandson, as we all got to chat and catch up.
They left some time Thursday morning after I had left for work at 11.

We both had off this weekend, Jim always has off weekends, he does work an occasional Saturday here and there. But I usually work every other, even though I'm not full time now.
Today we went shopping for a few things for his mother, dropped them off. Got to stand outside and chat a little bit. Made plans with her for tomorrow. Then we bought some groceries at Walmart for us, and a few other Walmart necessities. I bought a new larger frying pan for my induction burner. Used it once so far pretty nice. Then we went out to our oldest son Thomas. I still had an Easter treat for Sarah which we took a long.
We headed home for the rest of the evening, what a wonderful day.

Can't believe tomorrow is June. Today we went to get a sub to share for lunch and a weird version of a chef salad for my MIL. She did not want the traditional chef salad ingredients, and wanted us to add mushrooms. We sat outside her building on two lovely benches. It was a beautiful day it was getting very hot for me in the sun till we left. Found out later she walked back to her room, the chef salad on top of her walker seat and when she went through the door most of it hit the floor. She was also carrying eggs and bananas, that we picked up for her. After we left we went back to the FW for the rest of the evening. Jim made a fire but it was so cold I did not stay out very long.
Stayed up a little later than we wanted to but it was worth it. We both had to get up early tomorrow for work. The rest of the week we pretty much just worked came home took a golf cart ride after dinner.
It's fun when we drive around and stop and chat with people for a few minutes. One day the first week of June we stopped to talk to our friends Neil and Nancy, as they had a fire. Then we drove a little farther and said hi to our friends Mike and Candy that came in, who also have a Lifestyle FW from Chambersburg.
