Good afternoon from the USA.....been doing stuff today...shopping, graduation is tomarrow...and finally got to the store to get me some more writing materials. I wish I could find some way to get me some ribbon for my IBM Selectric typewriter....but then again I wish I had an manual one I could go and escape in some nice cabin somewhere and not have to worry about electricity also.This week is "finals week" for the college students. Busy, busy, busy...and yes, we put new batteries in my camera yesterday.
Let us know when Syd arrives Ron, so we can toast to the "Grouse Club".... and sing Ol' Lang Sang...while you two get to visit. Syd, drive carefully...esp in the rain..cathyml is correct...so what kind of car did Avis give you?
We rented one for an across country trip with my dad and betty, to see his sister....we got there just as her birthday party was starting...I don't hink she thought we'd make it...and it was such an surprise...they told my dad he couldn't ever travel again, and I know he wanted to see her.He was moping around and an grouch and unhappy. We rented an car with an fold down center backseat arm rest in it that went into the trunk....and wired his oxygen tank from the trunk to the backseat so he could sniff it anytime he felt like he needed to...worked great. He was so happy, it probably did wonders for his living several more years. As my old co-worker said to me one time...when her dad died at the cascino...as least he left the world where he loved to be...at the cascino talking to his friends...and playin gthe slot machines. Not wasting away in an bed. I asked another co-worker one time as she was older, what she liked about coming out to Oregon...she said your older folks aren't required to sit in an rocking chair with an ton of grandkids and rot to their death.... mentally. Then she up and tells me she liked to never made it back here on her vacation, ...she ran into her hubby...she divorced him...but he left an mark all the way down her face from taking the wall phone down it in an argument they were having...so while she was "back home" she ran across him...and he left, flipping her off...and went into an tavern....so she put an bunch of his stuff in his back seat.... in the motor of his car and lit an match....then took off running. Says she left for back out here the next day before the police could find her. I sit there looking at this sweet grandmotherly type and thought...I guess you shouldn't push granny to far these days. You never know what they might do....LOL.
With that I guess I better ought to get going for now...hubby just went to the Home Depoe..he's still trying to price out rain gutters. You would think with the economy so reportedly bad...some of the stores would roll back prices, don't see that as yet....... Have an good evening everyone!
