Almost a Day late and the dog days of summer...

Guess we all have these days, when there just seems to be more to do than we can get done or really want to do in the first place. This has been one of those days for me. Not that I haven't enjoyed it, that is the problem, I get to enjoying too many things and for that I get only a few enjoyable things done and no time left for the rest. Blogging is one of those things I enjoy, but not something I feel I can't do without for a day.

Since we finally got some much needed rain and right much thunder and lightening, I had to shut down the computer just as I started my blog. Instead I just went to the bar and sat down and gingerly read the local SNAP and got the latest local news and sports updates. It gave me time to rest as I have been on the go all afternoon. As usual I had a great time going to get my hair done. We always have something going on to keep the old and young a laffin' for a while. Today was no exception. For the first time in my 62 years of living in this wonderful world, I got my eyebrows waxed, plucked, dyed, the whole nine yards and I don't know who enjoyed the fun more, me or my precious 22 year old hairdresser! It turned out well. Now I look like other women--only as far as manicured eyebrows go. The BEST part was Alicia telling me that she sold those gawd awful Rainbow sandals of mine that I left two weeks ago at the suggestion of Terri, the owner of the shop. I didn't get what I paid for them, but I got a whole lot more than I would have with them sitting in my closet. I was happy, I just hate I forgot to leave the half used box of bandaids for the poor lady that bought them, but since I was told she was a nurse, shorelly if she gets blisters she will have access to bandaids at home or at work. More power to her, I wish her well. I quickly learned from this experience, that just because a friend says that they are the best wearing sandal she has ever had on her foot, shore don't mean that they will be the best wearing sandal on my feet!
Today the temperature hit 99 on our thermometer but according to the picture of the temp on the big billboard type thermometer at Home Savings, it hit 101 here today. Ain't a whole lot of difference when it is that hot. I am hoping this thunder boomer we just had will cool us off some. It dropped 9 degrees in just a short period of time. Hopefully the rain will continue all night, as the gardens and lawns are so dry and parched, it will take a whole of rain in order for it to soak in good.

I shall leave you knowing that we are not alone. They walk among us!

I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area. So I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up.
She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and I was in good hands. "Now," she asked me, "has your plane arrived

They Walk Among Us!


While working at a Pizza Parlor I observed a man ordering a small pizza to go. He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he would like it cut into 4 pieces or 6.
He thought about it for some time before responding. "Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don't think I'm hungry enough to eat 6 pieces.

"Yep, They Walk Among Us too.

Until tomorrow.....

God Bless!
