I don't know what happened. I used to be one of the biggest shopaholics around. Not that there's much in the way of shopping round here. I had to force myself to head to town in search of the elusive blue blazer.
I neglected to mention the Cinco de Mayo celebration at the Elks. Actually it was a meeting, but luckily we hit the lotto ... REAL carnitas cooked in copper pots. What a treat THAT was!
I should have taken a picture but was completely distracted by our newest member, an organ/piano player. There hasn't been any music at the lodge meetings in something like 18 years. What a nice surprise. Well, it might have been, except she mentioned to me she hadn't played since fourth grade, although I was sure I heard her wrong. No biggie we said.
She's a very sweet girl. She also mentioned she was taking internet lessons. We were enthralled with her two finger version of the Star Spangled Banner. I look forward to her performance at our installation in two weeks. Encouragement is a good thing.
Also at that meeting, I was told my Levis and boots were not acceptable when "company" comes to the Lodge. I convinced them my old pair of gray Levis will suffice, but only if I find a navy blue blazer.
Anyone been to Penney's lately? Walmart has better clothing. If you are a guy, half the store is yours. Kids and women are scrunched around the outside edge of Sephora which takes up at least 1/4 of the building. I found one white blouse. That's it .... not even a second one to try on. The blazer is still elusive.
To make myself feel better, I went back to the Chicken Wars with the latest and greatest sandwich, rated #2 by the Photography World. It took 30 minutes from the time I ordered at the drive-up window to get up to pay. I've no idea why, but you're pretty much locked in with no way out.
