Forgive me, if I use you to blow off steam. This has been one of the most hectic days I can remember. First. I went to the gym 20 minutes into my walk on the tread mill, I had an asthma attack. I ran to the car to get my inhaler, but no inhaler. I am 10 minutes from home. I made it home got settled down and went back to the gym.
I had the day to my self so I decided to go to my favorite place for lunch, Yes, you know Ci Ci's. Well.... I did not make it there. I had decided to take "Princess", big mistake. The weather was beautiful, but the sun was hot ,if you had to set in it, and I did. I reached an intersection and was stopped. They were paving the road and it was one way traffic. I turned the motor off and set in the sun, so motor would not over heat. After a while I started the motor again, but it was a false alarm, motor off again. I was worried about over heating, so I got out of the car, went up to the traffic director and asked if he could help get this lane moving before my car got over heated., he honestly could not, so I sat there about 30 minutes before he got my lane moving. Yes, you guessed it, it was dead as a door nail. As I sat there looking at every one look at me. It was strange because no one was honking. I think they all felt sorry for me, I did too, ha. Two of the county workers came over an pushed me to a service station . I called AAA, but it took a while. I guess I was there for about 3 hours. When the roll back truck driver checked the car, it started up like a dream, so I could drive it home. The workers on the road felt sorry for me and stopped the traffic so I could get moving. My biggest dread was telling John. I don't like those "I told you so's" ha. but he saw how distraught I was and was very sweet.
The worst is yet to come. Then we get the call. Our grandson will deploy to Afghanistan July 29. Sure not much notice. They had told him , it would be later in Aug.
Well.... Alls well that ends well. John had gone out to cut grass so he would not think about Chris leaving and I came up here to type and then we had a visitor. It was very nice. It was a man we had met and his son is a friend of our grandson. He knew about the diner and we had told him to stop by and visit. He choose the perfect time. It got our minds off the bad stuff and we had a very nice visit, As you all know I love talking about the diner. The only thing better is showing it off. So I am feeling better and this is much cheaper that a psychiatrist, ha. Love to all and if anyone reads this thank you. Barbara
