A repeat post...from August 1, 2019

 I was reading a blog yesterday afternoon, THIS post, and it made me have vague memories of something that happened to us at Walmart.  So, I started searching my blog.  I could remember that she said something to me, an also to Roger....and that we were not right together so he did not hear what she said to me nor could I hear her speaking to him.  I made the mistake of thinking it was before his stroke and when I saw the dates of those posts after, I most of the time did not read.

Due to that mistake, I spent a LOT of time looking for it, and actually just happened to find it.  Roger could actually remember it happening, and we were both laughing without remembering what she said.  Then when I found it, I could hardly read it to him because I was laughing so hard.  So read on and enjoy, I hope.

This is Rosie...she is the lovingest little dog you about ever seen as far as people go, but she bosses Otto around something fierce.   And he just lets her.


And she is about zonked out.  Don't you just love this...

I have not did two cents worth of anything today other than take us to breakfast, stopped at our Walmart for a few things, and did two or three household chores.  When Lorelei texted to see if she could spend a couple nights, I did not start anything.  Other than started cooking our supper...she does like home cooking better than about anything.

Oh, I about forgot the funny thing I wanted to tell.  We were at Walmart and about ready to leave...Roger and was over two or three aisles, maybe four...and this young girl and her mom/grandma walked by.  She say hi grandma as she passed me...I didn't know if she was speaking to me or was saying 'hey' grandma...thought I had heard wrong.

I would say she was from 8-10 years old.  And had some kind of learning disability.  Well, in 3 or 4 minutes, Roger came over and he was chuckling...and I asked him what was so funny...he said as that little girl passed him she said 'Hey Bud, you need to go home and shave!"    It was a miracle he could remember what she said cause ever since we got home, he has asked me what did she say.  It makes us both laugh every time we think of it.

Our Walmart is so small, that almost all the cashiers 'know' us, and the one we had today is actually the sister of one of our neighbors.  So we told her, and she got a good laugh but she told us we were lucky, cause most days that girl is in there is is rambunctious and very loud.

I hope this leaves you smiling....it makes me want to start chuckling just thinking about it...and about Roger's reaction.
**********
In hindsight, I still think it a miracle that he could retain it long enough to tell me what she said.

The second thing, Roger is seldom speachless, even since his stroke he can still be so witty.  That was one of the few times I have seen him without a comeback  Even when we go to the dr. now, our family dr, he has her laughing every time.

Me or a book?


 Copper's mom sent me these pics to show what he thought of her trying to read a book.  Doesn't your heart just go out to him?  You would never guess that he is spoiled rotten.


He says, 'But if you must read, I will be right here on your knees.

I had to run to the grocery yesterday evening just to pick up a couple items.  I decided to run to the strip pits before I came home.  


The Snow Geese are passing through...and were on the biggest pond/strip pit.  


The strip pit is huge and they almost covered it from end to end...minus maybe a hundred feet on the end near me.

Other pics will be posted at my other blog tomorrow...I hope you enjoy these.
