A Pleasant Fall Day

I had a very busy day yesterday so I went to bed early and therefore woke up at the crack of dawn. Breakfast is one of my favorite meals but since I do not know how to cook all that well, decided to treat myself to the breakfast buffet at the Sirloin Stockade.


As an added bonus I also got to people watch but with it came having to listen to people's conversations.  Why is it that when individuals talk on their cell phones they do it like the person on the other end was deaf?  I am enjoying my breakfast I could care less what you did last night or are going to do today. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

The funny thing is that it was not teenagers or young adults doing the blabbing, it was people my age and senior citizens.  Then the lady a couple of tables down starts on the government and what is going on in Washington.  We all watch the news, I do not want to hear your take on it lady!

When I drove up, there was a nice looking guy in the parking lot and soon another guy arrived apparently they had not seen each other in a while as one commented to the other how much weight he seemed to have lost.  These guys were in their mid-twenties.

As luck would have it, they sat next to me.  For such young men they had a very intelligent conversation...if they had a cell phone...it never rang.  I struggled to hear what they were saying since they spoke moderately, just loud enough for the other to hear...unlike the others around us.

It was such a pleasant day, we only experienced a high of 79.  It was cloudy and we got .14" of an inch of precipitation. As I type this post it is 60 degrees outside...what a wonderful fall day it has been :-)

  1. Keep those gas prices at that level or going lower. I was happy, happy to fill up at $3.179 as I was leaving KS a few days ago; lowest price that I had paid in a long time.

  3. Why is it that diesel is more expensive although it doesn't need as much refining as gasoline? Filling up my hundred gallon tank on the RV costs a fortune now-a-days.
