The phone ran at 8:00 am this morning. Being that I went to bed at 3:30 am I was still very much asleep. Why do people insist on calling us early, we are not morning people and all of our friends and acquaintances know that. In this occasion it worked out for the best as I needed to go to the courthouse (that is where the license plate renewal office is located) to get new tags for “Terlita” my beloved van. In and out in 5 minutes as there was no one in line.
Drove dad’s old car into town and it had a strong smell to gasoline. Swung by the library to check out a couple of newspapers and found out they closed our local Luby’s. No notice to employees, no nothing and calls to the headquarters from the local media had not been returned. This is where the mechanic’s wife works. I am sorry for her and all the people that lost their jobs. In a small town like Del Rio employment is hard to find.
I don’t normally go to Walmart on Wednesday but glad I did, as there were very few people at that hour. Have you all noticed how much paper products have gone up? I find I get better prices in Houston but looking at the local ads online for stores there, I might as well buy them here. I need to order checks and was surprised to see that the price has not doubled but tripled.
Looked in the camping section for some mark downs but found none. Maybe after Labor Day they will start slashing prices so I can find a couple of things for my upcoming trip to Terlingua.
I cannot believe I actually took a three-hour nap late this afternoon. I guess the heat (dad’s car does not have a/c) the lack of sleep and all the running around took its toll.
Good night. Terlingua Dreams.
