I am so glad I discovered blogs, they give you a different perspective on things, you get to travel vicariously with the people you follow and hopefully you also learn something along the way. Such was the case last night when I was reading Rob's blog http://observations-on-the-road.blogspot.com/2013/05/mondays-arent-so-bad-its-your-job-that_13.html
I have always been fascinated by western movies and how life was in the old days. Became intrigued by Wyatt Earp and his wife Sadie Jo and started reading up on them. Very interesting, thanks Rob for awakening my curiosity.
I have often griped about mother's friends showing up unannounced or saying they forgot her telephone number. Do not know why, she has had the same telephone number for over forty years and is listed in the phone book. Even had some cards printed up and I pass them out whenever they come.
With my insomnia and reading up on the Earp's I did not go to bed until 6:10 a.m. Woke up at 8:00 a.m. to serve mother breakfast then went back to sleep. I kept on hearing a knocking...but as sleepy as I was, it did not register that someone was at the front door. Then someone banged on the living room window and startled me as I was napping in dad's recliner.
After she yelled at me and told me who she was I went to open the door. The first thing out of her mouth was "why is your living room always so dark?" Wanted to tell her that we do not open up our blinds when we have the air conditioning going but of course since she lives off her daughter and son-in-law what does she care what they pay on their electric bill.........grrrrrrrrrrrrr!
Next thing out of her mouth..."you know your plants are dry, you really need to water them". I looked at mother and she gave me "that look"...bit my tongue and told her "thank you for letting me know"...darn busy body! OK...end of rant!
It was hot and humid and felt a lot warmer than the 86 degrees we supposedly reached. Rains were forecasted but did not materialize until after 9:00 p.m. We got .19" and a lighting show to go with it.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
