Today I had to take my mother to the hospital for the usual blood work. It seems like no matter what time we go...morning, noon or afternoon there are massive amounts of people there. You have to wait an eternity just to register and then an even longer wait for the blood draw.
I believe there is a State mandated test they have to perform on newborns within a short time after birth and every time we go there are so many babies waiting with their families to have it done. When did we have this population explosion?
No wheelchairs available either so mother had no choice but to use her walker. She has a wheelchair but there is no way I can lift it in and out of the trunk.
Another sign our town is growing is that a CVS is being built. This is our first national chain pharmacy. Would have liked for it to have been a Walgreens but now that we go to Uvalde once a month, I can always shop there.
Another first, even though this bar-b-q chain has been here for a while, I just had never taken the time to check it out. I finally made it to Rudy's, they are a friendly bunch of people. They offered me a sample of the brisket and chicken. Even though the chicken tasted delicious we are pretty tired of eating it and settled on the brisket. Their potato salad was delicious as well.
Quit procrastinating...I am now officially enrolled to receive E-statements from my banking institution. If all goes well, I may also decide to do the same with my utilities. I am drowning in paper and my stack of boxes keeps on growing :(
If memory serves me right, HEB was selling regular gasoline for $2.13 a gallon this afternoon which was much cheaper than Stripes who is our low price leader.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
