    The spokes-person for Cenior City, has announced today the spacious, 2 acre Senior Complex in the Village, has opened a new coffee shop, just for Seniors. It is called “HI-GOODBYE COFFEE” and is located near the corner of Walk and Don’t Walk. It will be open from 8 to 8, and will offer discounts Galore to Seniors, Only! The new juke box has been ordered and should be delivered in a few weeks!

    My Uncle Al, and Aunt Flo will be running the place for the time being. My pal, Falcon, will be pearl-diving and an old dough-boy friend, Dave Sun, will be supplying the baked goods, and goodies.
    Pricing will be on the gentle side and tips are allowed. Hope to see you there! Stop by and chat, and be sure to check in and keep us posted on all the happy news in your day!;)

    Seriously in need of a good cup of coffee today, friend Joe !
    We have had a busy day, and just finally settling down to relax a bit. Hope there is some chocolate raspberry left, maybe ? I am ready to be pampered.
    Bobby Cole and I went to the fitness center today, and just as we were going in the door, my dear friend , @Ina I. Wonder , called me.
    We hadn't talked for a while, so Bobby went on in and I sat and visited with Ina for a long time.
    Afterwards, I was debating whether I still had time to swim, and my phone rang again.

    This time, it was our neighbor, @Joyce Mcgregor , and her car had broken down and she needed help. It was good that I hadn't gone in swimming, or I would never have heard the phone ringing !
    Anyway, we climbed into the old stationwagon, and went to the rescue. Bobby jumped her battery from ours, and the car started and she was able to make it home; but then it stalled again.

    Bobby spent the next hour or so working on it, and it turned out that the alternator belt had come off, so it had been running on the battery until it finally died.
    Bobby needs a different set of tools to fix it; so Joyce's car is now sitting out in our driveway with the battery charger on it, and he will get the tools and (hopefully) put the belt back on tomorrow.
    So, truthfully, it is probably poor Bobby who deserves the cup of coffee, since he was the poor guy out in the rain working on the car all afternoon.
    Got two cups, @Joe Riley ?
    Bobby likes his plain (no chocolate raspberry), and I want mine with cream.

    Hi Yvonne! Good to see you! Uncle Al went and hired two waitresses last week. Rose and Daisy are there names, so I guess until Aunt Flo rounds up some flowers for the tables, Rose and Daisy will have to beautify the place.;) Rose will bring your chocolate raspberry with cream directly. We can pack up a cup for Bobby, when you are ready to say"Bye".
    Funny you mention car trouble...Al had to take the van into the shop to get a new tire put on yesterday. The tire guy called it a "doughnut", but Uncle Al corrected him. "One tire....Black"! Speaking of doughnuts, I gotta call Dave Sun for some baked goodies. Well, I'll go and have Rose round you up that coffee for Bobby.

    Good morning! The place is humming this morning! Betty has a 9:30 hair appointment and a 3 O'clock at the Chiropractor's, so, I am getting an early start to the day. "Thanks, Daisy". Emmmm....good coffee! My list is shorter...help Rich put the tables and chairs away, at church. Seems there was a funeral luncheon, on Friday....and things are moving in the slow lane, as Summer begins to wind down. Had my eggs with, toast already, and read the funnies...so I will get moving while it is cool. Uncle Al is bragging about how Clyde from the AARP next door hand delivered their new cards yesterday. Clyde is looking for a free breakfast, I think.;) Bye,all!

    Congratulations, Joe. Great idea for a thread. I'll go shopping later and bring some bakery items....I promise.
    Yvonne, you have had a busy day already. I'll send a cup of "Joe" your way.

    Getting late in the camping season. About six weeks we will load up on coffee and head south again. Having my second cup of coffee, a glass of orange juice and a, believe it or not, a maple favored pancake, wrapped around a sausage, on a stick. Hey, can't beat it. I've got my bread item, my meat item and a stick I can use for a tongue depressor.

    Later all. I ve got to shop for baked goods.

    Thanks,Dave! A tongue depressor in a Happy Talk thread? I guess it's OK!:D
    Dave is being modest, but he has many years of experience, as owner and chief baker at the "Sun-Baked Bakery"! ;)

    One good thing about our Virtual coffee-shop, is the no hassle parking! We have access to the 150 car Free Public Parking Lot, at the corner of Walk & Don't Walk, just 4 doors away! I gotta go and clean the front windows!

    Good morning, y'all. I'm sitting here sipping on my second cup of coffee. After I finish it, I'll go eat my bowl of cereal and a banana. Later I have to take the truck to get a tire patched and replaced so I can get it inspected. I need to get a sticker for the license plate. I need to go to the garden and pick okra and tomatoes. If there are any. When I went out there Monday, the deer had eaten many of the okra leaves. They have just about destroyed everything in my garden this year. I never even got one ear of corn. They ought to be some fat deer by now. :D Anybody know how to make deer jerky? :D

    Good day at the bakery. Today I'm rolling in dough. (Groan)
    Waiting for UPS to deliver my new smart TV. A 28 inch screen for the camper. The old one bit the dust the other day and we are totally Wi-Fi here. Will be nice to watch Netflix and Prime again.

    I did get a chance to bake you all some ginger bread cookies. These go excellent with coffee. Almost time for lunch so bye for now. Dave

    Good job, Dave! The fruit pies and angel food cake look good to! I'm pretty sure your ginger-bread men will march right outta here in the hands of our neighbors, the Silver Sneaker crowd, when they pass through today.

    Hi John, and welcome to Seniors Only Club! Thanks for dropping by the "Hi-GoodBye", to say Hi! Until you get settled in, the Dish washer position is still open, and yours if you want it. The kid that Flo hired last week, had too much on his plate, and just couldn't cut it. Talk to Flo on your way out. Oh, and that first gallon is on the house!;)

    Thanks Joe. Since I'm retired, I'm not thinking about employment even tho the dish washer job is open.
    Couldn't do it anyway due to a skin problem, and latex gloves always leave me cold because I always keep thinking about my
    proctologist. I HATE it when he snaps those things on his big hands! Brrrrr!

    Still pouring rain here today. We needed the rain; but poor Bobby had to work on the Buick in between the rainstorms.
    After two trips and over $60, he finally got the necessary size tools to get the alternator belt back on @Joyce Mcgregor 's car; and took it back over to her house today; so she will not be stranded at home anymore.
    He is now taking his (much-earned) nap, and the soaked mechanic clothes are in the wash.

    We had a busy day, even before Bobby fixed the car.
    He had a doctor appointment early this morning, and then we went to Walmart for wrenches (which turned out to be the wrong size), and then down to the fitness center, where Bobby works out and I swim and do the cardio walker machine.
    After that, we still had some energy to burn; so we made our monthly pilgrimage to Sam's Club and loaded up on the food that we buy from there.

    Now, I am relaxing and working on deciding whether I should start crocheting another little rug, or go help Bobby with his nap.............hmm ?

    I understand, John! I guess you've been in enough hot water!;) Flo put a sign in the window, and we'll see what happens.

    I hope you find a place near-by, and are able to stop in from time to time. The "new" Juke Box should be delivered by the end of the Month, and maybe you can give me a hand hooking it up. I don't expect them to break any records, delivering it.

    Hey Joe, I like your new venture, and with all the happy customer, you'll soon be expanding. I've been looking for a comfy little place to get a decent meal.

    I have found that this single living is hard on my eating habits. I have found that going to the gorcery store is wasteful, because I throw away more than half of what I purchase, then on top of that I have I very little appetite.

    I'm big on two over easy eggs, two pieces of bacon, and hash browns. Is that an affordable meal, and is that all day, or just in the morning. Also, do you serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. or just breakfast?

    With so many of my friends going to your cafe, and I sure many more will follow, you know I be an regular.

    Ina

    Good morning, Ina! We have been wondering where you have been. Shorty, our short-order cook, will make whatever you want. Our hours are 8 to 8, and in case you're early or late, the key is under the mat. Shorty is six foot tall, without hat, but he never comes up short on the portions! One advantage of a virtual venture, is that our vittles cost next to nothing, and we seldom have to throw away food. Buying and cooking for one can be a real chore, I agree! Shirley and Falcon were in yesterday, so you may bump into them when you come by again. Thanks for stopping by!

    This is my first time here. I've seen your coffee shop but we don't eat out much. While I'm here I'll have a big mug of black coffee and my wife likes stevia and Irish cream in hers. Two eggs over medium, two big patties of J.C. Potters sausage, grits and biscuits and gravy for me.

    I want to welcome Falcon and other new people, some I may know from somewhere else but can't place at the moment.

    I picked up a load of donuts because I am the baker, and will deliver them in a few days. My mode of transportation is a little slow these days. I have posted a pic of my latest delivery van. Enjoy that second cup of coffee. Dave image.jpg

    Curb-side service....can't beat it, Dave! Had our own version of this, just this morning. Our phones stopped working after a lotta rain yesterday, and the phone guy, John stopped his truck at our "curb" around 9AM. I had to flag traffic while he took a ride in the bucket. He found the problem at the terminal at the pole across the road. Will schedule a flagging crew and then replace the terminal and service wire to the house. Funny thing was the internet stayed on all the while! His quick fix was to put a "raincoat" over the terminal. HaHa!
