This past weekend was hubby’s weekend off from work. These don’t happen often and they are like GOLD. Truly. Our plans were to meet our younger set of kids.
which we did and enjoyed! Hubby and I love to treasure hunt though, so we could not resist the fluorescent green garage sale sign just outside of our neighborhood. We followed the arrow…..and the next arrow….and the next arrow. Before we knew it, we were a few miles from the house, but it was an adventure and we were still certain on finding something spectacular. We finally arrived at our destination. Old clothes. An old treadmill. And there was another giant fluorescent sign strapped to the front of the brick house that read: “YOU CAN NOT USE OUR BATHROOM!! DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT ASKING!” Really. Did this needed to be stated. AND in such a rude manner? Sometimes ~certain things will trigger that little bit of “GET-EM” inside of me. This did. As we were walking down their driveway, I stopped, turned and said, (yes~ you’ve probably already figured it out ;)) “Do you think I could borrow your restroom?” The man’s jaw dropped and he studied me briefly in silence. Then he broke into laughter and proceeded to tell me that there was an oak tree I was welcomed to use. I won’t tell you where the conversation went after that. As I said, I found the signage silly. But there was a kind man who was shopping, and he took the time to stop me and tell me where the closest convenience store was located. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that I was simply trying to “poke the bear”.
On Sunday, hubby and I were traveling on Route 66. This particular portion was a busy divided highway with four lanes. We started seeing slow downs, red brake lights, and cars pulling over. I then noticed a policeman many cars ahead with his lights on. We determined he was stopping someone. But then he did a u-turn, and when the truck in front of us moved to the right hand lane, there was a large blue sedan…directly in front of us, going the wrong way. The officer was trying to get to them. Hubby chose to take the median rather than the car to the right or the head-on before us. Our hearts got a pretty good work-out. The officer was able to get her stopped before anyone was hurt. It seems she thought she was on the service road. Later that evening as we were “reflecting” on our day, my words to hubby were, “Man, I wish I’d had my camera ready for that one!”
You never know what the next moment will bring. And you cannot ALWAYS have your camera ready. So the pics of SHROOMS have nothing to do with anything….kinda like my post today. Just ponderings in my noggin’ and pics on my sd card. 😉 Have a great week, friends. Be nice to people. And let them use your bathroom. 🙂
