Woke up to a nicer day: cloudy windy some sun, slept late and organized stuff. Picked up a ride to the grocery store which turned out to be a 3 hour jaunt, could not find a ride back. Finally the store brought me back, then off to the laundramat. Guy put Pam’s Sausage Rotelli Chili Dip in the oven and we had happy hour. Dinner was Shay’s Great chili , salad, warm bread and cookies.
Elizabeth City is known for its rose buddies; two gentlemen in the 80’s would come to the dock and hand out roses to the ladies. Both of them have since passed away but I was fortunately to receive a rose in '99 from Fred. The rose bushes are planted in the park for everyone to enjoy.
