Blogs and bloggers
I never had a pen-pal, or 'secret-pal'.
Today was a long day, The eye appointment was a disappointment. We arrived early and Sherry was called on time. I sat in the waiting room and read some magazines. Then I thought of my Amazon Fire in the car with some Western's on it I had not read, so I retrieved it. and Read some. I looked at my watch and it had been over an hour. This was only a check up to see how the surgery awhile ago was doing. I saw patients go in and come out and no wife showed up.
After awhile she walked out, she had seen a couple of technicians but had been sitting for over a half hour to see the doctor, and she was fit to be tied. I said are you ready to go she said "YES". She told the technician she was leaving and the look on the lady's face was shock, like you can't do that ( or we forgot you).
Asked if she could reschedule and Sherry replied no. She had already been rescheduled to fit the doctor's schedule. Anyway we left. The only other time something like this has happened was when I waited over 45 minutes past a dental appointment, and walked out.
We are both usually more understanding (and forgiving) than that, but we were supposed to pick up Son Mark 70 miles down the road and travel another 40 miles to meet Josh and Megan for dinner.
I understand emergencies happen, but common courtesy should be informing someone who is waiting. One gets the idea 'you are here at my beck and call'. Even retired, our time is important and we also have plans.
But to Blogs, Bloggers and pen pals.
After the above incident we did have a great time with the kids (?). We had supper at ‘The Conch Republic’ at Redington Beach (ST. Pete Area). It was near midnight when we got home. I just looked up at the clock and it is about 1:30AM. I opened the computer and realized I was about to visit friends. I had a few blogs to read and you guys made my morning. It was like a visit from old friends. Talking about dad's, self checkout, real Halloween, Jean taking care of Grover, Scenes of leaves in the Blue ridge, one trying to find a way to forgive a (not so) thoughtful husband, One who has an angel in her work life, Someone cold in NY, and friends seeing freezing weather in Wisconsin, and much much more.
I realized you guys are the best, THANKS. Oh, and on the way home I stopped for gas and bought a Big cup of ice with a little drink in it. The Clerk was a bundle of joy. A guy who exuded happiness.
Life is good, I guess finally at 77-78, I have Pen Pals.
today started as one of these days,
