Country Went To Town
I had to see my Dermatologist in San Antonio today. Results of light skin and yard work in the Texas heat with no hat or long sleeves or sun screen. We can go to WalMart out here several times a week and not see anyone we know. It was like old home week in San Antonio. A lady was checking out at the doctor as I was checking in and at the same instant we recognized each other as line dancing together for years. After she left the lady sitting next to us started talking and I thought I heard her say she was from our town so I ask her and sure enough she grew up in the next town over and knows people we know. We left with all those little stinging spots on me with an appointment for this time next year. We stopped half way between our favorite thrift store and Golden Corral to get a lot of exercise in the big store before we pig out. I'm liking buffet lunches less and less but John loves them. While in line there we met a couple we went to church with for several years. It was nice to see and chat with old friends. Now tomorrow we're not looking so forward to. John has to go to court. No he didn't get into trouble, the renters in the farm house won't move, pay rent, or electric so it will have to be tended to by law as the landlord wants the house back for his grandson to move into. They were good to help at times when John ask but they just won't hold a job and pay. I had rent property for years but never came to court and only lost $13.00 on the very last tenant I had so don't know the procedure.
