Today is October 29. Where in the world did the month of October go? Where, in fact, did this week go? I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. I have noticed a rather bizarre phenomenon during this entire COVID situation. Time goes both slowly and quickly. It really does seem like the days drag as you stare at your four walls. And yet, the weeks speed by. Why is it that time goes faster the older you get? Days go slow but the years go fast.
In the Nick of Time
Remember last Wednesday when Bill and I turned up exactly one week early for his echocardiogram? Well, yesterday was the correct day. We were doing fine on time until I remembered that I didn’t have my phone. I didn’t care so much about having the phone, but I did care about having a book to read while they did the procedure on Bill, and my Kindle is on my phone. I drove back to get the phone (thankfully we weren’t too far away). But as a result, we arrived just as the clock struck 10:30. Well, maybe 10:32. Just like the three bears; first we’re early, then we’re late. Next year we will get there right on time.
One of my favorite things about watching historical mysteries is seeing the pretty clothes and accessories. I decided yesterday afternoon as I watched an episode of Foyle’s War, that I’m sad men no longer wear hats. I love the way men looked in their hats in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. I remember that my dad had a very difficult time finding a hat that fit him correctly. His head was very narrow…..
I imagine that’s the reason I don’t remember him wearing hats very often.
And the Winner Is…
You might recall that last Saturday I posted this photo of my sister Beckie Borman’s granddogs Bentley and Bailey…..
….and asked for captions. My favorite came from my cousin Kak…..
B and B at BB’s B and B! Breakfast ready?
By time I write my Thursday Thoughts next week, the election will be over. Bill and I sent in our ballots a couple of weeks ago. I have no predictions, and won’t share any thoughts with you except for one. No matter the outcome, I hope we can all remember to be thankful that we have the right to vote. Remember to love one another and come together as the great American family that we are.
