King Soopers Was Happy to See Me
We hadn’t even been home for 24 hours, and I already had visited the grocery store three times. The last week or so that we were in AZ, I scarcely cooked because I didn’t want any leftovers. So I was determined to avoid going out to eat for awhile. Tuesday night we had spaghetti and last night I made beef stew. Both were yummy. But I must be out of practice because last night’s beef stew required a couple of trips to the grocery store. I kept thinking I had things in my pantry that I didn’t.
You Know You’re From Nebraska When…..
A friend of mine posted this photo on Facebook. It’s an actual photograph of something a Nebraska farmer has done to a bale of hay. I think it is the cutest thing ever. I wonder if I could have a bale delivered to our house right in the middle of Denver. I also imagine I could hear our neighbors say, “My, it is so nice when they’re gone.”…..
Baby You Can Drive My Car
My driver’s license expires on my December birthday. I have been so nervous that I would forget to renew it and return to AZ with my old license. Since I’m now over 65, I can’t simply renew online. I need to appear in person so that they can judge whether I am fit to drive. I hope they don’t ask me to name any Christmas movies, because I already know those names escape me. Anyhoo, I went online to see where the nearest location was, and found one not far from here. They will only see people by appointment. When I went to make my appointment, I learned that they are way out past my December 14 birthday when it comes to available time. So I guess I’m going to do it the old fashioned way this afternoon. Pull a number and sit in the beige room with all of the other crabby people.
While I came home to an empty refrigerator and pantry, Bill came home to water on the floor by the furnace. Dang. When you own a house, it’s always something. When you own two houses, it’s always something times two. We called for service, and they came out within a couple of hours. I’m pleased to report that it was simply a missing small plug which Bill and his new friend found in a garbage can. I don’t know how that happened. What I do know is that our grandkids LOVE to play hide and seek, and the basement is a favorite hiding spot. Anyway, it was only 80 bucks instead of thousands of bucks. Yay on that.
