After getting out of work, our friend Boe stopped by for a visit. He has only been married a couple weeks and they are doing very good. Rachel was an employee at the furniture store. Boe and Rachel run a furniture store in town. Originally, his father Dan, had this business for about thirty-five years. Boe worked for his dad for quite a while, until Dan finally decided to retire. Then, Boe took over the business. We've known their family since our grandkids went to grade school, with Boe and his younger sister, Summer. Also, they were neighbors for about a year. Also, we did buy appliances from Dan on different occasions. His prices were comparable to those we'd found in the city. Buying from a local family business is something we like to do. Anyway, we had a nice visit with Boe last night, for about two hours. He's a remarkable young man! Photo: Mine

What a nice visit! (Will they give you a discount on new furniture? ) I love chatting with my neighbors. I came home last week and my next-door neighbor and her granddaughter were in my back yard before I could get out of the car! What a great time we had!

They do run specials at times, on certain store items.

What a wonderful old timey business. I think running a furniture store could be fun.

I'm not sure if I'd like running a furniture store.

How wonderful Boe visited you! Glad you enjoyed the visit. I seldom get visits besides Susan, my case manager, and Courtney, both on Wednesday's. My sister comes a couple of times a month and the rest of the time I am alone when it is not Wednesday..

I enjoy having company once in a while. Being alone doesn't bother me, I sorta enjoy it:)

@kobesbuddy Well, you have Jay there every day. After my company goes home, it is just Onnie and me. But I don't always mind being alone as I do like to have time to read all I want! =)

The only problem is when their prices are marked too high. Then, we shop somewhere else.

When someone stops by unexpectedly, we are caught off guard. It's a good thing we weren't heading somewhere.

@kobesbuddy I usually prefer to know in advance when people intend to come to visit.

I like to buy from local businesses, but it is becoming increasingly hard to do so, especially after the last couple of years

Our local businesses are surviving, many didn't last through the pandemic.

@kobesbuddy Same over here, our Government is more concerned with looking after its mates
