Say What?

Early today at the grocery store there were many employees in the aisles stocking the shelves. One must navigate carefully to reach something that may be blocked.

As I went down the card aisle, a lovely woman working there commented on my hat. It is crocheted and made of several granny squares. She said, "I like your hat." Thanks, I answered - "Granny squares."  She then said a nice thing that made me smile but doubt her eyesight. "It makes you look adorable."

Here is our family. Each has a crazy hat but I am the only one wearing a home made one.  Christmas, 2010.

Evening Call

We just received a call from a store's information taker about some work we had done here at the house. (8:30 p.m.)

Very high marks were given.

If only the person taking the survey could have spoken a tad more slowly. We out here in the boonies drawl and are used to less rapid fire speech!

November -Where Did You Go?

Tomorrow is the first of December. I can hardly believe that this year is almost over. The months seems to go by more quickly than usual.

Maybe it's something I don't understand about the process of aging and the passage of time.

Too deep for me.

We had one errand yesterday. My advice. Don't even try to get there from here - or wherever you are.
We are in a small town but the traffic looked like the Big City.  We managed to make it back home with no incident but I am thankful we don't have that every day!

Cat Emergency

Last week I bought three 3.6 lbs. sacks of cat food. For the feral cats somebody is feeding.

This morning there were no sacks to be found. None in the back of the van. Somebody wondered if the grocery store would be open.

He could not find a listing in the pathetic phone book that left our name out again this year. It evidently also left out the grocery store's number. I looked on the internet. Ads, shopping possibilities, specials, Black Friday stuff; no phone number.

So we bundled ourselves up, went out to the car. He opened the passenger door and there on the floor was a sack of Purina Cat Chow.

I went back in the house and he fed the stupid cats.

Too Late

I received an interesting call from the medical community where we go see our doctors.

They told me there was a recall on a medicine that I take. It was from a batch that was distributed last June. If I had any left, don't take them.


I have to renew it every thirty days. I believe I have already taken those from June.

Well, luckily I guess, I'm still here.

Sunday and a Birthday

Today is my husband's birthday. We're not doing anything special.

Just glad we're both still here after sixty-seven years together.

I thought a small burner would heat up a big pot of water if it was on high.

It does. It takes about half an hour to bring the water to a boil for spaghetti.

A few weeks ago our large burner stopped burning. I'm afraid we're going to have to buy a new stove.
Replacing a burner on an old stove - probably $200. Then you wait for another to go out when you could have bought a stove for maybe $500.

We need to go shopping.
