And lm going for lunch with my dad today - hes got his first offical check up since the quad heart bypass - so fingers crossed its all ok!
Woohoo!!! He will pass his check-up with flying colors!! Just don't let him near the chips with those shiny new arteries!
Nice, G! Love those what-doesn't-kill-you-makes-you-stronger moments.
Oh, it got better as the day wore on...
I made the mistake of getting into the car again - well, kinda had to - had to pick up Beerman from work. While cruising up and down the hilly back road (at about 55-60 mph), I spot a turkey vulture soaring quite high up. I get back to watching the road. As I start up another hill, the vulture appears out of nowhere (well, not nowhere, he was in the sky) and just misses slamming into the windshield. I have to say, for a bird that size, he pulled up very gracefully and I hit the brakes very quickly. They have a 5-6 foot wingspan and that's about all I saw in front of me for a few moments - black feathers obscuring my complete view.
Continuing on my journey, and about 2 minutes later, I start around a blind corner. I make a point of taking that one very slowly because oncoming pick-up trucks like to zoom around it taking up both lanes. Oh, look what's in the middle of the road... Three children, with their bikes, just standing there. One holds up his hand to me in the "stop the car" position. I crept past them and they moved slightly, giving me dirty looks for not stopping. Needless to say, Beerman drove us home.
I also had random elderly people just start talking to me about random stuff everywhere I went yesterday. An older man asked if I had ever ridden the grocery carts and then proceeded to ride his down the aisle. A woman commented how she loved pushing the cart down the "wrong" side of the aisle because it made her feel wicked. She loved that. I was invited to a real estate and personal property auction this Saturday but the gentleman neglected to say who he was and where it would be. (Not that I was going to go - I own a house.) Seems they are bankrupt and need to sell though they were driving a rather new Lincoln Towncar and he bought quite a few lottery tickets. Guess he's hoping for a windfall.
