Early interesting Cars:
I do my blog entries in MS Word. I am typing this sentence and nothing is appearing. I will stop now and it will catch up inna minute. Does that happen to you? I timed it, it took MS Word 5 minutes to load for this entry. I just wanted to say I am really not depressed, I am one happy dude. BUT I do work with a slow system.
I tell my sweetheart that I would much prefer to be ‘On the Road’. My last two entries have been sorta down, but really I am not.
Of course last night I did notice during our nightly game of dominoes (BTW Sherry is beating the socks off me) that a bulb (or two) was out in our dining room light fixture. So after the game I climbed on a chair and with a foot on the table removed the globe.
Whilst I located two bulbs Sherry washed the globe. Imma cool guy. I replaced two bulbs. Then holding the newly washed fixture, I climbed ONTO the table AND……. My world went crazy, I dropped the globe, heard it break into a thousand pieces as I was losing my balance. THE TABLE COLLAPSED. Our antique table’s end leg broke. Of course I am a slick dude of 80. I slide part way with the table cloth and jumped to the wall..
I was so impressed when my girl ran over, hugged me very tight and asked if I was hurt. Of course fortunately, I was not hurt in the least. (If I would have thought fast enough I could have really milked that for all it was worth! Maybe limped a little)
This girl asked me oncet, “What if a ship you were on would sink in the middle of the ocean, what would you do?”
My answer, “I would swim home to you sweetheart, what else?”
Funny, I meant it. I have always tried to think positive when it was me, against the world. I know I could have been hurt in the table incident, and I will try to be careful. I did think of a ladder (I have several) but had no doubt the table would hold me. I have heard of people dancing on them!
I am blessed, and very fortunate.
PS: I fixed the table leg of course, we stopped by Lowes and bought a temp globe. All is well. We also finished JoAnn’s doors and she is happy.
