Saturday-4:45pm-Trip to Tochi's :)
I was up very early this morning to see the sun coming out from behind the clouds.
They predicted rain and there were some darker clouds early this morning.
The sun fought its way thru the clouds...and it was a gorgeous, gorgeous day!
Some stuff came up and Leah showed up later than originally planned. She worked on trying to transfer VHS tapes to DVDs, but had all kinds of troubles. Dagan stopped by for a bit and tried, but he had to go meet up for golfing. They'll try again later. (Have to come here to use my VCR as they don't own such a relic anymore--hehe!) Leah then started working on a Mother's Day card for her mom (who is doing progressively worse, BTW) for tomorrow. She did some caulking--mixing caulk with acrylics using a brass stencil (her mom likes oak trees). Left that to dry and we took off for Tochi's.
You may be sorry you asked for more videos--ROFL! You will feel like you went with us to Tochi's, I tell you! ;)
And before we left we took pictures of the old cash registers on display. There's the silver one and the painted one with the barn scene you see on the backside here.
This ornate old silver one...
...was the second register from 1979 till July 2001. In the smaller red handwriting it says "it died" underneath--hehe!
This old wooden register was the original one.
Different painting on the side, of course.
And we discovered: "Tochi's first cash register 7 Sept 1971". Not the 60s, but darn close. LOL!
We had the best trip ever to Tochi's. The gentleman who helped us (I pointed him out on video 5, I believe) was so helpful and friendly--but didn't want to be on camera himself. Of course, neither did Leah. Everywhere I aimed she moved behind me or out of camera range. (I'd do the same.)
I now have a whole bunch of things from a list I made while I read recipes. No clue what half of them are. Being brave. I will make a video to show you the Tochi's haul.
Leah had to meet for a girl's Spa Day at 1:15pm (manicures, pedicures and facials!) while the guys golfed. So she was in a race to get there on time. We loaded up the bags in my white cart I keep in the garage and off she flew.
When I got home there was a note on my door that flowers were delivered and #304 had them for me. Honestly--my feet hurt so bad that I put them straightaway in the frig and have been working up to actually trimming the stems and fixing them up in a vase, but I can see they are GORGEOUS!! You will see pictures, I promise. Guess I'll have to blog tomorrow, too, eh? ;)
Exhausted but happy here in Fargo! What a beautiful day!! And yesterday they predicted rain. Glad it was superb and only breezy 70 degree day! Really does feel like spring today, that's for sure. Have a good weekend!!
