So I thought I could do a kind of a regular post today, giving shout-outs to a couple of local businesses. Then we went to a third local business, where I had a couple of glasses of Chardonnay, which is not at all a bad thing. Hmmm… well, let’s begin at the beginning.
I had a prescription to pick up at the Medicine Shoppe. It has been ready since Tuesday. Tuesday afternoon, I called Steven from work and said, “I had a kind of a wild thought. Instead of going and picking up my prescription after work, how about if I come home and shower, you come with me to pick it up, and we go out to dinner.” Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, Steven had already planned on fixing tuna-noodle casserole for dinner and was not inclined to go out. I say “fortunately” because the casserole was quite tasty.
Fast forward through Wednesday (which I only vaguely remember anyways), and I made the same suggestion. I had an additional reason for doing this: I finished the salad I made for my lunch, and if we went to dinner I could get a salad and perhaps have some left over for tomorrow’s lunch. Steven was non-committal, so I thought it would be a good idea to pick up my prescription before coming home.
So I knew I could give a shout-out to the Medicine Shoppe in Ilion. They are really nice there. If you do not have a regular pharmacist that you like, I highly recommend the Medicine Shoppe.
Whenever I stop at the Medicine Shoppe, I often go right across the parking lot to Ilion Wine and Spirits. They are very nice there too. I purchased a bottle of my favorite champagne, Great Western Extra Dry. It is a New York State wine, from the Finger Lakes. It is yummy, if you like that sort of thing, which I do.
When I arrived home, I found that Steven was quite willing to go out to dinner, especially since he had turned me down earlier in the week. I felt it was a good day for Steven to go out, because he was looking quite handsome. Earlier today, he got his hair cut and beard trimmed at the Hot Shot Salon and Spa in Herkimer. Ooh, another local businesses to give a shout-out to!
We went to Salvatore’s in Herkimer, one of our favorite places. I could write a whole post just about our dinner. Perhaps I will, but not tonight. For one reason, I am over 400 words. That’s pretty good for me. I may drink some more Chardonnay. Happy Thursday, everybody!
