And the other one is a picture of just an awesome big house down the street a couple blocks away from where I grew up!
I went out riding around today on my scooter. It's amazing how much I pay attention to what the weather is going to be like for the next few days, now that I don't drive a car. Huh...you don't know what you got til it's gone...oh well, I have even more now than I did, does that make sense? It started sprinkling/raining on my way home from the Family Dollar store (I love that store, #1, it's so cheap, and #2, everybody that works there or shops there when I'm there is so unbelievably nice!). And the only thing I could think of was.. "I probably should have mud flaps on here!" Maybe I could find some Yosemite Sam ones...but, I will NOT get the ones that have a naked woman sitting on 'em!!
Anyway, I got all kinds of stuff there today. I'm almost ashamed to say...Goobers, Raisinettes, Hershey bars with almonds, Snicker bar with almonds, peanut bar, Andy Capp's hot fries, etc. I can't keep going, I'll totally humiliate myself. And everything was only like a dollar or two. But at least I made it home before it was full-out rain! It WAS thundering, though! I backed the scooter into the house like I always do, luckily, I keep it in the back of the house, in the laundry room, there's indoor/outdoor carpet there, not my thick gray carpet! It was kinda wet, so I was drying it off, and all of a sudden realized I hadn't been so 'meticulous' with a vehicle since my RX-7! I damn near detailed it!! haha!
I was kind of thinking about back (forever ago) when I was a cashier and produce manager at grocery stores around Ohio. A lot of the people that used to shop where I was a lot, used to be very 'huggy' people, and, yeah, I always used to hug them back, especially since I was usually the first person in the store they'd see (being as that's where the produce aisle usually is!). So, in conclusion to the long road to nowhere....have you ever wondered if you've ever shaken hands with/hugged someone who killed someone? That's gruesome, I know, but, some of the people I met in my public work...well, if ya saw them, you'd know exactly why I wonder sometimes. And I'm not talking about in a war, that's totally different.
I guess I was thinking about stuff like that because the other day when I got up, I came out here, and I know I'm the only person here, and I sat down at the computer and noticed the mouse was on the right (we have a cordless one, cuz I hafta use my left hand, it's the one ms hasn't gotten). I was the ONLY person here!! Yeah, my big gray cat, Truman, but, as far as I can tell...he has no thumbs!! haha! I finally gave up wondering yesterday, and called Tif, and asked her if she'd been here Sunday night/Monday morning while I was asleep, and she said yeah, their internet wasn't working, she need to use mine!
