I had to take off work early today to take my daughter to her doctor this afternoon. Her dad couldn’t get away from his job and she was running a pretty high fever for 2 days now and with tomorrow being Saturday, her doctor’s office isn’t open on the weekends, I didn’t want to chance her getting any worse and one of us having to take her to the E.R. My kid never gets sick Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8am and 5pm.

Although they (the doctor’s office) have horrible office hours, they are wonderful in many other ways. I like that they are right next to the hospital and the other medical buildings and offices that we end up going to for various specialists and testings. When we end up needing a bit to eat, about the only people you see at the McDonald’s, in that part of town, are wearing medical uniforms and are employed in the huge medical center or one of the surrounding buildings. It’s so nice to finally see that it is OK to wear something other than the same old plain white uniforms for healthcare providers that we all grew up around in our day.

More and more of our medical professionals are sporting medical uniforms in various patterns and a nice and growing variety of colors, which I think is a wonderful idea, one that is well over due. I mean who would want to wear the same old thing, day after day, week after week, month after month and God forbid – year after year! An unthinkable concept.

Anyway, my daughter will be fine in a few days. No antibiotics this time around, which is fine with me. Those horse pills are a pain to try and get her to swallow for 10 days in a row, what a pain. Besides being big in size, the price tag for those puppies aren’t cheap, I can tell you that.

My first car was a 1967 Ford Mustang, god how I loved that car. She had a 287 under the hood, with a 3 speed on the floor and she could stomp all the other cars in a heart beat. She not only looked good and ran good, but she sounded good too. I got pulled over one time buy a State Cop who said that I had “glass packs” on her proceeded to crawl under her to see. Heck I didn’t even know what “glass packs” were back then. He did seem very disappointed that he didn’t find anything illegal on her and let me go on my merry way, thank goodness!

I ran across an interesting site the other evening that had all types of car and truck exhaust systems and  interesting exhaust tips listed, which I found to be of good reading quality and it reminded me of my run in with the law with my beloved Mustang, back in the good old days. I wish that I still had her. Once in a while I’ll see one some where that looks just like her and it brings back some really cool memories. Maybe one day I’ll find another 67 Ford Mustang that I can buy and I’ll be in Mustang heaven once again.

I’ve had a bottle of white wine left over from many months ago, I think it was from Valentine’s Day actually and that has been many months ago. It has been in the bottom of the refrigerator just taking up precious space since. So tonight I decided to open the sucker back up after dinner and drink what was left of it, come hell or high water.

It really wasn’t all that bad but I must say that a fresh bottle tastes a whole heck of a lot better, which reminds me that I need to pick up a bottle for Thanksgiving dinner.

Having a good insurance agent can really pay off in so many ways. The allred insurance burlington nc has been such a good and positive experience throughout the years. There is no way I would ever even think about switching any of my insurance policies, although according to all of the commercial that we are bombarded with, there might be a cheaper rate out there with another company.

My father always says “If it ain’t broke, don’t try and fix it”

I’m Not Going Anywhere

Another one of his favorite sayings is “If you can’t fix it with a hammer, get a bigger hammer”  LOL!

I used to drive my mother totally crazy with my addiction to shoes while growing up and living under her roof. My mother wasn’t one to have a large selection of foot wear, she probably owns less than a dozen different types of shoes and is content with what is all ready in her closet. Me, on the other hand, has a whole closet full of shoes and boots and am always on the look out for new ones to add to my ever growing collection that I have been working on since I was a pre teen. And now that the Internet has turned into such a valuable tool in finding products of all makes and models I can shop for new shoes without ever having to leave the house and then they are delivered right to my door!

It cracks me up to see all the new and very unusual shoes that are coming out, with so many celebrities wearing them, which of course makes the every day consumer want and need to go dashing out and buying the same type and/or style with little or no regard to how stupid they look on her. It takes a special type of woman to pull off those types of shoes, as well as learning how to walk in them without looking like an idiot on top of it all.

can't have too many shoes
