A day of rest and a day of shopping, Fort Payne, AL, Nov 10 & 11, 2011

Thursday we succeeded in achieving our goal, it was a day of rest with just a little work.

This year we made two batches of Cherry Liquor, one with sweet cherries and one with tart cherries with a little added sugar. So far we like the taste of the tart cherry mix the best. The cherries were strained though the cheese cloth and all the liquor was then squeezed out from the cherries.

Below is the result of our Cherry Liquor efforts, looks pretty.

Friday the first words Bob spoke after I woke up was, “The frig is not working.” Yes, the light was OFF. With it being 21 degrees outside, he wasn’t real anxious to head outside and check our the back of the frig. He had figured out where we could buy a portable freezer and our plan, at this time of the day, was to drive to Chattanooga to buy it. Then did he get a pleasant surprise, he noticed the ON light was ON!!! We had done nothing! So our original plans for today were back on, go shopping at the Unclaimed Baggage Center.

What an amazing store and yes, we did find a few goodies.

We each wanted a lightweight rain jacket, with a front zipper and hood. And the hood needed to have a Velcro tab that helps the front of the hood from falling in your face. Mine is a Marmot and Bob’s is a Columbia brand, with the price ranging from $25-$32 each. I also found nice comfy lightweight black sporty jacket for only $6.

Here Bob is looking for a camera case, he did find one.

I tried my best to fill my shopping bag.

After shopping until we dropped, lunch was enjoyed in front of the Court House in Scottsboro.
