Monday Moanin'.

I just made it to work before the rain started. Oh, I know we need it but, damn, there goes the truck wash…

It rained hard about 8:30 a.m., but stopped before I walked outside at 10:00. It was still warm, but it had gotten windy as a cold front moved in.

I went to the Newburgh Grill and got the beef vegetable soup and a patty melt. Then I went to Lowe’s and got the paint for the birdbath.

I was bummed to learn that all six Hiller’s markets (a specialty food store I love) have been bought by Kroger’s and will become Kroger’s stores. Sigh…

When I got home after work, I changed clothes and went out to the garage. I used wood filler to fill all the holes in the doors I had done and then set them out to dry. I got another two doors cleared of hardware (these are the original uppers and have at least 1/8 inches of paint on top of them), before I was too hot and sweaty.

So, I quit for the night. I made a can of split pea with ham soup for dinner.

It was after 8:00 p.m., so I just watched some taped TV until bedtime.


  1. Kroger, you aren't great so stop buying all the good stores left! Jake and I often went to Hiller's. Sad day.

  2. Holiday Market in Canton is a good one.

  3. I know, that's my fall-back. But, Carla's right, I will miss Hiller's.
