In Chicago 11-17-11

Jim and Kristy had a special day come up yesterday, Jim had to report to the Cook County court system and report for jury duty. He was selected to serve and I am here picking up Jimmy. Jim and I got Jimmy off to school, then I went to Home Depot and looked around for a 50 amp circuit breaker for the hot tub, they had nothing. So I went to Lowe's some 12 miles away, across Chicago, near Midway air port, ( thank goodness for GPS). Well I made it and Lowe's had what I wanted. I am back at the apartment now playing on the radio and computer. Rough day.

Veterans Day 11-11-11, 11PM

Today marked the end of WW1 100 years ago, the 11th hour, 11th day, 11th month and the 11th year. Later in History the name was changed to Veterans Day to honer all Veterans. Phyllis went to work and I stayed home and finished the yard. Then I was there at the hospital to pick her up and take her to Applebee's for a Veterans Day Supper.
