Just Call Me Flaky…
Just file this under the “it’s always something” title. I’ve been using Head and Shoulder’s Intensive Care dandruff shampoo for years now. Well, this week it decided to no longer work and I’ve had an especially acute breakout of dandruff. Mom looked at my head last night and excitedly said, “You’ve got to go to the dermatologist!” She loves doctor’s appointments. Dad groaned. This comes on the heels of me relenting and deciding to get this troublesome wisdom tooth pulled on the condition I go to a dentist down in Columbus, Georgia that uses anesthesia. I want to be put under for the procedure. Well, mom is geeking out about all the appointments. She is like a kid at Christmas. She loves this stuff and loves keeping up with my physical well being. So, now I have something to fret and obsess over for the next week. I know mom loves this stuff, but it drives me crazy.
The Train Images du Jour…
A few people have asked if these are of my layout. Sadly, I don’t have room for a layout. I am an armchair modeler for the most part. Those random images are taken directly from the pages of Model Railroad Craftsman and Model Railroader magazines. I guess I need to start writing the layout and the creator with each photo. I will endeavor to do that today with today’s photo.
Little Joys for George…
George wasn’t very excited about going to work last night after two days off.
“At least, I have an easy job,” George told me, trying to consol himself.
“Be positive!” I replied cheerily. “What’s your favorite part of work?”
“Shut up Pollyanna!” George said tersely and then laughed.
I burst out laughing as well.
“My favorite part of work is my lunch break,” he said. “Momma always fixes the best lunches and I get in a corner of the break room and chill out for thirty minutes.”
As George was leaving last night, he said, “Finish up my carburetor tonight! I am excited to crank my Caprice and see how it runs.” So, that is what I did. I stayed up till midnight finishing rebuilding George’s carburetor. We will slap that sucker back on in the morning and see if I didn’t totally screw up the whole process. I have my fingers crossed.
