Mary Ann leaving her house at the very Top of the mountain, and the neatest place here.
Ain’t she a beauty, NEVER ages! That is her Banana Pudding! (I already ate the cornbread!!!)
Sherry’s guy, trying to read, but sleeping after the meal!
We have been shopping in the last couple weeks. Sometimes when you are camping you take a day and walk thru stores. While down in Georgia, Mark, Sherry and I went to one of the ‘OUTLET’ strip malls. The only shoes I buy anymore is tennis shoes or what ever they are called today (running, hiking, walking, jogging and standing still shoes).
Growing up I think I needed one pair of leather shoes, I shined them for Sunday and sometimes for school. Our clothes were play/school clothes and a set for Sunday or Church. I remember once having rubber boots.
(Podiatrists report that during the summer they see an increase of patients for flip-flop-related injuries, including stress fractures and tendonitis).
I was looking at Flip flops. They were always shower shoes to me, that was the only time I could stand that rib between my toes. WHAT???? $80-$120 for a flat piece of leather with two straps and a thong. Where is the value there? Closed in leather shoes (that are a lot more labor intensive (like that phrase?)) are more reasonable. Oh well.
Okay, someone ask me what color hair I listed on my drivers license (I’m bald), being a smart aleck. So, I saw a boy with orange hair, when he goes to get his driver’s license what color hair do they list? Why is there a slot on a ladies license? Some change their hair color monthly.
Speaking of colors, I read an article written by a Black man entitled, ‘Colored people’. It is funny that white folk should call us ‘Colored’. When we are born we are black, when we die we are black, and every step in between. But you guys, You are pink when you are born, red when you are in the sun too long, blue when you are cold, Red when you are embarrassed, purple sometimes when you are dying and white in between. THE MAN DID HAVE A POINT.
Colors? I know you have noticed the amazing colors the computers have come up with on cars. Green was considered an undesirable color for years, but now, there are some beautiful greens. I love the colors that fade from black to blue or red. It amazes me.
Hey I can remember back when the only foreign car I had ever seen was the Volkswagen. Of course gas sometimes sold for 5 gal for a dollar too.
Thanks for reading my ramblings.
Understanding Engineers (from Shirl)
Normal people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet!
