All about my first day off

I slept late, it felt great. Chance and I sent Far Guy off to the museum, it was his volunteer day.

I lounged around in my jammies for a long time. I returned phone calls that needed my attention. I read until the phone ringing interruptions were too much. I finally got dressed. I had to leave Chance behind whilst I did some errands, it was way too warm of a day for a black dog to sit in a black car. I had the dreaded mammogram in the afternoon..owie, I hate that boob smashing machine. Cross something off the freaking list!

I visited Far Guy and I packed up some more of my office and gave him guidance. Then I took all the used ink cartridges to the animal shelter, somehow they get money from them. I took time out to pet some dogs and made some kittens purr.

I went to Walmarts and went up and down every aisle, just because I could. Yes, I got everything on my list and then some. Far Guy said maybe unsupervised shopping was not such a good thing!

Came home played ball with Chance, took pictures of my niece’s family and Chance and I ate a late supper. Far Guy had a long volunteering day, he went straight from the museum to a community activity… that showcased Arts… he was at the woodcarver’s display table.

I think I have turned the corner with my cold…maybe.

I am reading my Trixie Belden book. I began reading that series of books when I was about 10 years old. I saved up to buy books. ( I used to get 25 cents a week during the summer from my Dad if I behaved and helped out during the week, and $1.00 for every A on my report card during the school year.) Then when we would go to Woolworth’s ( A five and dime store) in Detroit Lakes I would pick out a Trixie Belden book…they were usually .99 or 1.09 plus tax. I found out that 39 books were published in the Trixie Belden Series from 1948 to 1986.…and the first ones I bought were called a Cello or “glossy” because of the glossy cellophane that was adhered to the book jacket. I am certain I wrote my name in all the books I purchased, every time I open one in an antique shop I wonder as I open the front cover was it one of mine? I paid $3.00 for this one…and so far I have gotten $3.00 worth of enjoyment:)

    I understand how you feel about mammograms. Last week I had to have a biopsy. Directly afterwards they did a mammogram to view the titanium markers they’d inserted. Now that’s one time you don’t want a mammogram. Good luck with your results.
