Well, I won the election and have been serving on the Watauga City Council since November 2020.  It has been a lot of work but well worth the effort to get elected.  I am still on the Watauga Economic Development Corporation and have added the Crime Control District to my list of boards.  I am also trying to be very active in the Volunters in Police Service program for Watauga.  Who said being retired is dull? 

I picked up beef bones Saturday. I roasted them then put them in the slow cooker for 20 hours. I poured off the liquid into a metal bowl and let it cool then skimmed off the fat. I put the fat into the slow cooker for 10 hours to remove the water and simmered the broth on the stovetop to remove the excess moisture. I finished the process this morning, boiling the jars and lids and softening the bone broth a little. I got a half pint of pure lard and two half pints of beef bone broth. Starting on my bases now means better soup for fall and winter. NO - I DON"T MAKE PHO. LOL

Our lives were complicated by Covid-19 but after getting vaccinated, we felt a lot better being out and doing things.  We wear masks when appropriate but aren't as worried as we were a year ago.  For us, life has pretty much returned to normal.
