few days back I was at the store and did some grocery shopping. At the register I had my cheque book out along with my pen. The clerk told me the total amount, and I started digging in my purse for my glasses. Yes I cheat! I have to have my reading glasses on to read and write. I couldn’t find the pair. So I backed up a little and strained to write the amount on the cheque. After I wrote the amount out, I gave the girl my cheque. I knew her as the baby sitter for Andrew and Zain, and told her I was sorry I took so long to write the cheque out, and that I was searching for my glasses. She said, “No problem Doctor; are your glasses different from the ones that you have on the top of your head?” I put my hand up and found my cheaters!
Yesterday I went to pick Andrew up from school. I took my keys out of the ignition and slid my middle finger through the key ring because I did not have a pocket in the slacks I was wearing. I had a book in my hand which I take inside the school because I like to continue the reading while waiting outside his class. I saw Andrew’s school bag and his lunch box on the shelf, so I grabbed them. A few minutes later he came out and we started walking towards the car. I realized that I had no keys on me, and knew I had probably left them on the shelf when I picked his lunch bag. His teacher was standing there and I told her that I was looking for the keys. We couldn’t find them. Then I noticed the dang key chain dangling from my finger! The teacher patted my back and said, “don’t worry doc, we all have the same types of problems many times!” And she is about 30 years old!!
A friend’s husband works for a firm that makes wheels for large 18 wheeler trucks. Some of the wheels are discarded because either they are surplus or are not of proper size. Each of them is about 54 inches in diameter. They brought two such wheels for me. One of them I have in the front yard with flowers, and the other I have in my backyard with vegetables in them. Here are the pictures.
Eggplant, tomato, green chili, and okra.
Dahlias,daisies, columbine, Mexican heather and waving petunias.
I love this shade of Columbine.
Does anyone know what this flower is? I thought the plant was a weed. I don’t get rid of some weeds. This year it is full of blooms like these.
I am not sure it has a fragrance. My nose is kind of stopped up a little. The humidity is so bad today.
