Things You See At Wal*Mart
Now J. if you read this I am not judging these people. I am laughing with them not at them. John and I stopped in to buy a few things we needed and happened to get in line behind some interesting friendly people. I kid you not the big girl/lady (I don't know if she was the man's wife or daughter, she was a big girl/lady) was sucking on a pacifier. Is this a new fad? John and I kinda live a sheltered life down here so I have to ask. Its okay with me if she wants to wear a diaper with pink pins to Wal*Mart just makes it more fun for me to shop. So the man strikes up a conversation with us. He was buying dog food and was telling us how good some of it looks. He said the meat and gravy really looks good. The female said don't let him kid you he has tried it. I said well if he starts barking you'll know why. The man ask us well are u'all having a good Columbus Day so far? I said yes we went to the big city for me to have a bone density test and that is about as good as you can get. Which reminded me growing old is getting to be a lot of work. Friday it was to my primary doctor for a female test, today it was San Antonio for a bone density test, tomorrow its to the hospital for a mamogram, and Wednesday its to Bandera to the blood doctor. Wouldn't you think they could figure out a way for a person to just take a whole day and have everything done at once and at the same place? I used to hear senior citizens say if it wasn't for all the doctor visits we wouldn't have any place to go. Now I understand what they were saying.
