Wednesday, I went to a new friend’s house for dinner. We met through my hiking club. The food and company were excellent! I love her deck. She’s an artist and her ceramic feet are a great conversation piece. I had … Continue reading

Driving balls and Date # 3
This past week I drove golf balls with my girlfriend and we ate at a restaurant that I hadn’t been to. It had been a couple of years since I went to a driving range and too many years since I’ve been golfing. I was surprised at how well I did.
I had dinner at my dates home, he made a delicious steak and I made a side dish. The red wine was tasty.
Here are some of the flowers I planted yesterday.
Today I’m doing a newborn photo shoot for my friend’s daughter. I have a fourth date this evening. Have a great weekend everyone!
Dates and dining out
I’ve had three dates in the past week. The first date was a second date with a gentleman. We dined at a Korean restaurant in Covington, the food was very good. Then we went axe throwing. It was the second time I’ve done this. It’s somewhat frustrating because it’s difficult, reminds me of golf because you have to do it a lot to get good at it.
My second date was with a friend I’ve known since December. We dined at the Knotty Pine on the Bayou. It was my first time here and the food was delicious! I love raw oysters. The restaurant has an outdoor seating area also.
My third date of the week was a third date with a gentleman. He’s Italian, and we had dinner at Mama’s on Main in Covington, I had never been there before. The food was excellent! We even split tiramisu for dessert. The decor, as you can see is very nice.
Last night my friend came over and I made a chicken dish with ancho chili, and a cucumber and avocado salsa on top. The weather was nice so we sat on my outdoor patio and had fun drinking wine and dancing!
Life has been good! Have a great weekend everyone!
Dates, Hiking, the Gym & Cooking
My activities for the past week have included meeting two new potential dates, hiking, working out at the gym, cooking, and meeting a new girlfriend for happy hour.
I drove an hour north to the historic Clifton Mill for my first date, had lunch, a short hike along the Clifton Gorge, and browsed the shops in a quaint town called Yellow Springs, Ohio.
There’s a weekly hike at Spring Grove Cemetery through a hiking group I belong to. As you can see from the photos below, it’s a beautiful place to walk. It’s mostly active people in their 60s.
I can tell my body is responding to my workout regimen at the gym. I’m getting some guns on me 😅. In my quest to eat healthy, I made homemade roasted minestrone soup, and then treated myself to a root beer float.
I had a first date (now I call them meet and greets) yesterday for a bite to eat in Covington, Kentucky and then a walk along the river front in the Licking Riverside Historic District. When you get to be in your 60s, many people don’t like to have their photo taken, but I always say today’s the youngest you’ll ever be, and in 10 years, if you’re still alive, you’ll think gosh I really looked good.
I met a new girlfriend through hiking. She’s a nurse. We met for happy hour and appetizers last night. It was nice getting to know her better. As we left, the setting sun was beautiful.
I have another meet and greet today. Tomorrow for Easter I’ll be spending it with my brother, his wife and others that are like family.
Hope everyone has a Happy Easter! 🐰
