We decided to run a few errands today.
We had taken the Minnie's couch seat to Troutts Upholstery last week to get it recovered. Our appointment wasn't until yesterday but we didn't want to forget about dropping it off. We got a call early yesterday saying that it was done and ready to be picked up. We picked it up this morning, Earl and his worker did an excellent job. There is a stripe in the material and they experimented with running the stripe up and down or running it across the cushions, they decided on across, excellent choice. There was a lot of material left over so if we want to cover the back we could use it and we may only have to buy a little more. The service was outstanding, it wasn't suppose to be done until 3:30 in the afternoon and it was finished at 9:30 in morning. When Larry and Earl were carrying the seat to the truck they had to be careful considering there were sharp edge on the pins that held the cover on the seat. Later on in the afternoon Larry used his Dremel tool and ground the sharp ends off.

The next stop was Harbor Freight Tools to get the boat jack, we were in luck, it had come in yesterday. When we got home Larry looked at what he had to do to modify it so it would work with our trailer. He decided the only way to make it work was to make an adapter plate out of thick steel, he would have to locate some steel and then there would be a lot of work involved. He looked at the worn out gears and thought maybe he could just order the gears and replace them. He went on the internet and found a place that had gears that looked like the ones on our jack. He measured the size of the gears and they were the exact size of the ones he found so he ordered the gears. We were notified through e-mail that they were shipped. They will be here through priority mail via the post office. When they arrive he will make sure they work and if they do we will return the jack we bought.
Larry read the newspaper ads yesterday and found that Aldi had baby back ribs on sale so we stopped by Aldi while we were in town. They were out of them but they should have some tomorrow. We didn't leave empty handed we bought a few other items.
Before going home we stopped at Walmart and filled up the truck with gas. Afterwards we stopped by Little Bohemian Bakery for a cinnamon roll. Larry ended up buying a couple of them considering they had some two days old rolls for a dollar a piece. They tasted great.

While Larry was working on the Minnie's seat cover I finished assembling Evening Surprise, amazingly it only took five days to complete with help from Larry. When I first looked at this I thought it was going to be really difficult, guess not. Really pretty puzzle, there is a combine harvesting corn at sunset with pheasants flying off.

When we were in Aldi's this morning we picked up some tortilla chips, I used them to make nachos for dinner. On top of the chips I put refried beans, pepperoni slices and shredded cheddar cheese. I made the nachos on a pizza pan and then I put the pan on the cast iron pizza pan to bake in the oven. I removed the nachos using my pizza peel.
Larry and Patricia met up with us and we all went to Sun City for A dancing. We had exactly enough people for two squares so Dan had to run the computer while he danced, made it a bit more challenging. We all had a great time.
