Each and every Saturday here in Idaho Falls brings a veritable smorgasbord of activities to choose from. Today is no exception.  We'll start off with the obligatory visit to the Farmers Market.  Later, there's the Idaho Falls Power annual Open house.  We're also going to a big shindig at the Town & Country Nursery.  Twice a year T&C brigns together all sorts of gardening experts to help us heathens learn how to tend to our plants and lawns.  We've missed their Fall event ever since we've lived here.  Not this year!  We especially want to see their display of the showiest fall perennials as well as learn how to store potatoes properly.  Heady stuff, huh?

Karen L. came by for Happy Hour last night and stayed well into the evening.  She regaled us with stories and tales of here many years in Island Park back in the 1970's when it was the equivalent of a "Northern Exposure" reality show.  We're encouraging her to write a memoir about her life and times there.

Most of our checklist chores yesterday were related to vehicle maintenance.  We actually even washed several months worth of bug residue and road grime off of Susun's ride, Snappy.  She remarked she can't remember when it looks as good as it does now.  We both continued to attend out separate daily workout routines. 

For some largely unknown reason, we were detoured off into the ozone yesterday, reviewing videos we made in 2009 about various Eastern Idaho Senior Center meals.  Click here for the one on the Madison County Senior Center's rib luncheon.  Click here for the one on the Rigby Senior Center's pork chop.  And, finally, click here for our favorite--The Roberts Senior Center Chicken Fried Steak.  The screen shot at the top of this blog post shows Sheila, the Robert's cook, in a little vignette at the very end of the video--past the scrolling credits.

Have a great day & Many Cheers, jp
