Just the other day I mentioned our coach had a lot of gizmos and electronic gadgetry and then yesterday an electronic device failed.
We come home from a lunch out, press the code on our digital door lock and……nothing, nada!
No beeps, no sighs, no comfortable sounds of locks unlocking. We can hear the exterior compartment doors unlocking (so I can still get to our beer fridge) but in spite of the fact there are two very excited barking dogs on the inside, the entrance door will not unlock.
I get out my ladder and find a window that is big enough I can crawl through (these days that needs to be a big window) and (here’s the important part) is also unlocked. That takes us 10 minutes. Now the dogs and I are inside barking, Marilyn is on the outside being cool like Marilyn usually is, and we finally get the door open.
You can see this one coming: In true computer fashion, when we try the door locks again, they work fine, Probably because computers are smart and they know we now have keys hidden outside.
Perhaps this explains why I need to find bigger windows: Marilyn is a great cook and getting better all the time. Recently she whipped up a great dinner of Creamy Shrimp Pasta. Here’s a link to the recipe at Old Bay.
She changed the recipe up a bit, she used gluten-free pasta and substituted asparagus for the peas. She used fat-free sour cream and skim milk instead of half and half and added some peppers and onions instead of something else. Other than that, she followed the recipe exactly. The result was delicious, and healthy! We find it best served with a wee glass of Black Box.
