It Must Have Been The Weather
In her comment Helen wished us another nice day today and I do thank her for that. We did have a nice day. It was cool and cloudy and the people in San Antonio were so nice I thought it must be the cool weather. We didn't encounter one frown or one word that wasn't nice. We went to a business office before we left town and chatted with people there who had a smile on their faces as they chatted about the beautiful wildflowers. We went to our favorite thrift store first. I was checking out the cute what-nots and ceramics as a hispanic lady commented to me on how expensive they were. From there we discussed the price of everything, health care, and the President of The United States of America. I think we both felt we had been friends forever. Usually we don't find people that friendly compared to our small town where everyone knows everyone else or knows someone kin. When we were finished looking around we sat in an area for people to wait with tables and benches. A young couple walked up with thier young child and the nice stroller they had bought for him. I was impressed when they brought out baby wipes and started cleaning it from top to bottom even though it looked new and clean. Then they proceeded to try the child out in it asking him if he was comfortable. I don't think he knew what comfortable meant but he looked happy as a king. While they were cleaning and testing we talked to them like long lost friends. Then we said our goodbyes and walked across the parking lot to Golden Corral. Actually we were dragging our feet until 2:00 for the Early Bird Senior Special. We walked in at the same time of a lone black man. We all politely tried to let the other go first and told him we were in no hurry as we were waiting for the special. He didn't know about that so he decided to wait to. We sat on the bench and learned he is a preacher and he thinks he knows the year Christ will come. I don't know that anyone knows that but he was a nice man to talk to and discussed our aging problems and lack of remembering to bring cell phones. On the way home everyone was driving by the law. No one was cutting anyone else off or honking. I think it was the weather. When I got home and checked my blog comments I saw Toon had told me turtles like hotdogs and nightcrawlers. I can handle the hotdogs but nightcrawlers? I'm the gal who used to try to wear gloves to bait my hook. Ora told me they read of turtles in scripture in the bible so I'm hoping I can read that. Yes today was truely a nice day.
