#1. People spend a lot of money to vacation here at the beach. Those who picked the first two weeks of July for vacation spent most of their time like this:
#2. My 28 year old washing machine was replaced yesterday by a new shiny model. So was my old dryer. The new one has a steam feature. I think I will really like that. However there was a glitch in the installation and now I have to wait for a plumber to come and finish it off before I can actually try it. Nothing is ever easy. Laundry is piling up.
#3. Speaking of old things, I was on my way to the grocery store this week when I spied an old friend sitting by the side of the road.
I rode this car to school every day and to work. Usually we were jammed in like a can of sardines. Never got a seat so we had to stand the whole way balancing a load of books. The trip started above the streets of Boson and then went underground. Have you ever heard The Kingston Trio sing charley on the MTA? Charley was trapped on the subway for lack of a nickel fare.
#4. At least with all the rain I haven't had to water the flowers. That's a good thing because I'm not very good at doing that. The garden is starting to look over-soaked though.
#5. Yesterday was my "Half-Birthday". As a kid my January birthday celebration was usually cancelled due to a major snow storm. So Mom would plan a July event to celebrate the half way mark. Yesterday my husband brought me the most delicious éclair from a lovely French bakery to serve as my "Half-Cake".
Now it's time to visit Nancy at Random Five Friday.
