I was reading in peace when he got home at 6pm. The yakking started and continued while he went out on the back patio and did his expenses for the past two weeks.

Then he was back inside when the sunlight was gone and continued yakking, about his business and then telling me what I should do to start a business with tapping and have a Facebook page. He kept hinting about being fit and losing weight and made a salad and gave me some. Kale, that he blanched for 3 mins., with pear and Champagne vinagrette dressing. Blanching kale takes the bitterness out of it and it is a beautiful bright green. I will make salads that way.

He suggested we watch 'Sunset Boulevard' from 1950, a black and white movie from 1950 with William Holden and Gloria Swanson. High drama! I thought it was funny. He continued to work through that yakking here and there.

I thought he'd be pooped after a 5 hour drive and 4 hours of hiking but nope! He yakked and yakked and yakked, telling me what I should do to make a better B&B. Like give them my room, and put in a door to the new patio. I have already thought of those ideas. But it was hard to get a word in edgeways!

He finally went to bed at 12:30am. I didn't want to be rude, some of what he was saying was interesting... BUT

I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo glad he is gone! If my brow could do this it would look this way last night.

I've never seen such a brow, amazing lines for one in their late 20s early 30s maybe.

Back to bed to read, I will grill the ready marinated pork spare ribs I got from Trader Joes this afternoon, with some mini sweet potatoes and I have some blackened corn. Sounds dishy lish! He left a few asparagus spears I will put on the grill too, as well as an orange, some apples and carrots and the Champagne dressing.

On the wedding front, Trina asked for my address and DOB. She will pay the deposit next week. YAY! That wedding is March 27th at a prison, so she needed the info to get me cleared, SW of Phoenix at 1pm. 4 hours of driving for a 2 minute ceremony. Works for me! I shall enjoy the drive, go in to Phoenix and have an early dinner and drive home the back way. The wildflowers should be out, if they aren't already.
