I sat down for hours at the shopping center this morning. It was an overcast day, but warm. Big S was sitting next to me and not talking. We were both quiet today. I looked on earnestly as people shopped. I almost expected George to come driving up at any moment. I miss that old codger.
"Looks like it is going to rain," I mumbled to Big S.
"Uh-huh," Big S grunted quietly.
Big S is the poster boy for being content with what you have. He does little, but sit down here everyday to escape his sister and her toddler children. That old saying "a bump on a log" comes to mind. I sat until our lack of conversation grew uncomfortable and I left. I got in my car and drove through town enjoying a short jaunt.
Rosa has her car. It is an older model Toyota Corolla with some miles on it. It runs perfectly, though, and the air conditioner blows freezing cold air. She is so proud and I am excited for her. She drove to her first NA meeting last night down in Auburn. I worried about her driving so late in the evening, but she did fine. She wants to try other and more interesting meetings. Another chapter in my and Rosa's lives unfolds with her getting this car. You won't catch me riding with her, though. She is a scary driver! LOL
