Our Remodeled Bistro Opened Tuesday …

… and the complaints are legion, of course.

The sole point of agreement with the majority of the inmates is that it looks nice. The hangout it replaced had the comfortable look and feel of corner bar with a brass foot-rail that everyone appreciated because the consensus was that it looked like a hangout should.

The most succinct comment that says it all about the new look is: “A waste of money.”

Among the changes in preparing for this trip was having to clean out several  bookcases, and store away heirlooms and antiques and stuff from shelves so contractor  won’t spill or break as much when they remove  the existing floor to replace it with hardwood and carpet. They start Tuesday, the day we leave. Ross and neighbor who remodels and renovates houses are honchoing the project. Should be thru Friday or Saturday. Neighbor Dave will do a walk-through a week from Tuesday and then give the contractor the final check.

Also this time, because I’m on this medication testing and switchover, I’ve had to marshal what seems like several gross of  prescriptions and supplements and still have room left in my carry-on.

Also learned it was a good thing to have called credit-card company and bank to let them know we’re traveling because the changing rules probably would have caused their systems to refuse our credit and debit  cards, especially out of the country — Canada.  So it’s a good idea to call before you go  and  give them the dates and travel sites.
