I had an unusual and fantastic day today. I crossed off all I intended to do - Call Spectrum and buy a new car. I don't have any pictures of it yet, but just a reminder what the old one looked like. So today is the old view, tomorrow I will post the new one. My friend from Writer's Guild invited me out for a fish fry with her best friend from Texas, who had to come this way to attend a funeral for her uncle tomorrow. We had a wonderful time. Now mind you, I don't go to bars on a regular or even semi regular basis. I can count on one hand how many times I've been in a bar since my Navy days. However, that's where the fish fry was and the food was excellent. I ended up bringing home a box. No way am I going to let that go to waste. I had no idea what I wanted to order, so I ordered the seafood platter - minus the frog legs, marble rye bread, and coleslaw, added potato salad and a pickle and I was in heaven. The seafood platter had perch, bluegill, shrimp, scallops, walleye, and cod. There was also an order of portobello mushroom poppers. I had never had them before. If I see them on a menu again, they will be on my plate. They are out of this world delicious. So that has been my day. I will tell you all about my new car along with a picture of it tomorrow. I went straight to the fish fry after buying it, so no camera and too dark now to get a picture. I also got $200 trade for the car, so I got a great deal on this car. More about that tomorrow. I also got my copy of Stowaway in the mail today, which made me very happy. I now have copies of all three of my published books. I start work on Freedom's Cry again next week. I really haven't had any time to give it more than a thought this week. So next week I'll start fresh on it and start the editing process. My new friend from Texas also bought a copy of Scarred from me, making me a very happy camper today with all the wonderful things that happened. That was my day. How was your day? And yes, I did go to the pool this morning too. Thanks for reading. It seems the only picture I have of the car is covered in snow

Sounds like you had a fun day! Good for you. Day just started for me. Only 10:35am here in Manila, Saturday morning so not much is happening at work. Later in the day, I will go to the gym to train and in the evening, I'll be having my ESL classes.

The fish fry sounds like a lot of fun. One thing about eating at a pub is that you usually get huge portions of food for really good prices. We actually went out for fish and chips last night too--it must have been Fish Friday! I'm looking forward to reading all about the new car, nice that you got something for the old one, it definitely helps sweeten the deal.
