I was at the store today to get some stuff for our trip tomorrow (more later) when the young man in training wanted to know what I was purchasing – he did not KNOW they were apricots! I asked him if he had ever had a fresh apricot and he said no – he’d had dehydrated ones and wanted to know if these were better?
BETTER??? Is the grass green in Seattle? Is God in His Heaven? Is all right with the world?
I told him he HAD to have one of the ones on special today, not “someday” as he promised and told him that he probably couldn’t eat just one.
I have been picking up apricots every therapy day since they are on sale and are sooooooooooooooooooo good!
On another note, as I toodled around town doing errands, I noticed some young boys selling “lemonade” so I stopped by on the way out of town, had a young tow-headed boy with a cigarette in his hands to come to the car and tell me how much the lemonade was and then bought a glass. The young boy reminded me of myself when I was about that age. I would bike around town with a cigarette in my fingers, puffing away and hoping to upset adults. Never worked for me – bet it doesn’t work for him.
Oh? Did I mention that they are CANDY cigarettes? And oh, so good – I should see if I can find some to nibble on. They have the same taste as the valentine candy with sayings on them!
Now, about this weekend – we are going to a Threshing Bee to demonstrate; this is in Milbank, SD. My cousins, Ruth and Jerry, that Candy and I met this spring live very close to the site and Jerry works there for a friend. Jerry was responsible for getting Norm and I invited … it should be fun and we are going to be staying with Ruth and Jerry during the weekend. We leave tomorrow morning and will be back on Sunday night or Monday – depending on if we spend Sunday night with R&J or not.
As far as my computer is concerned – it’s running at half speed or less. Won’t let me on any Google pages expect my main blogger page and other main pages.
I cannot post or edit, so I post through email; thank goodness THAT works. Any editing that needs to be done is done by Joy (thank you, sweetie) who goes on to correct problems.
I cannot even send comments, so all of you who deserve comments, consider yourselves commented on. I will do so when I get this problem fixed. I should re-format, but I’m a big chicken – afraid to lose what I have. So I am holding my breath, saving my money and hoping to buy a new computer from Vern, my computer guru this fall sometime.
Today is a beautiful day – another mild day with very little wind – perfect weather for me!! I am going to put a skein of Soot’s yarn into a ball and find a pattern for cable wristlets – I want to make some for Pastor Mark as a thank you for giving Soot to me. She is a treasure – her wool is to die for!!!
You have a beautiful day!
