Photo of the day:
The Three Harris Girls, Lennie, Sherry and Colette. They were all great sisters and mothers. Their kids the cousins all got along well. We miss Lennie and Colette. My BILs thought they got the best looking sister, but I KNEW mine was the best looking.....
Above with their mother. They were close to their mama. I read how close Lisa, who comments here, is to her daughter, it reminds me of Sherry & her mama.
So for today:
had a short errand to run today. I
jumped in the car (maybe I didn’t jump in since I will be 85 next month) and headed to town. I passed a quick stop
and thought, I will stop and get a lottery ticket on the way back, just for the
fun of it. I drove on up the road, then I thought as I was driving 5mph over
the speed limit, I don’t have my wallet.
Why didn’t I think of that when I thought of the lottery ticket? I
automatically slowed down to the speed limit; I couldn’t show my license if I
Oops, then I saw some trash on the road, the results of a wreck and I thought,
‘hey I didn’t bring a cell phone I drive good, but the other guy just might not
be paying attention and I couldn’t even let Sherry know I had a bump up.’
I finished the errand and as usual had no problems. I got to thinking I
can’t remember when I have had to show my license nor remember when something serious
has happened and I NEEDED a cell phone.
cell phone, I call it a leash! I seldom
talk on the phone of course, but I am getting dependent on texting. I do use voice to text (‘verbal’ texting),
but I am dependent.
I did laugh at myself this past weekend. We were in a motel room with a
HUGE TV and never once in the evening did we turn it on. I turned it on for the fun of it the next
morning and laughed as I clicked thru a million (ok, a lot) of channels and did
not find a thing I wanted to see. I have become dependent on the NET for my
news and info.
Yep, how easily I eased into dependence…
: PS:. Thanks for reading the Shipslog, hope to see you again. I think I have started to depend on you guys to keep me sane..
