A Delicious Breakfast Over Conversation…
Mrs. Florene called me early this morning. “Baby, let’s go to the Waffle House and get a ham and cheese omelet.” I overcame my social anxieties and drove us down to the Valley. We went in Mrs. Florene’s Buick Skylark to let it run some – a car that fascinates me. It is a early nineties model with only 18,000 miles on the clock. It has the infamous General Motor’s quad4 engine – an engine that has always intrigued me. We talked mainly about George over our meal. George is in the prison in Atmore, Alabama. He got 1 year and 6 months in jail. Atmore is on the Alabama/Florida state line so I don’t know how much we will be able to visit him. It is a five hour drive. Mrs. Florene used some of her precious savings to hire George a lawyer and he got George a reduced sentence with a plead of guilty. She said the lawyer said he should have gotten three or four years with all the DUI’s George has had and the circumstances of his arrest.
I also learned the details of George’s arrest this morning from Mrs. Florene. George was blacked out from drinking copious amounts of bourbon. The police officer said in court that he was sitting in a parking lot downtown and watched as George came swerving down the road and ran over a stop sign. George continued on oblivious to the policeman, the glaring police lights, and the sirens blaring behind him. They finally got him pulled over after several other policemen had joined the chase and he fell out of the car trying to get out. I shuddered as Mrs. Florene told me all this. I am just glad my friend is still alive and didn’t kill anybody.
Word verification is off. Sorry Jules! I didn’t realize it was such an inconvenience and that is probably why my comments have dropped precipitously lately. I mainly had it on to stop comment spam which I get a lot of in the archives. We will see how this works.
Attitude of Gratitude…
I am so excited and grateful that I am getting my contacts today. Despite my doctor’s warning that I may not be able to see well with them, I am still hopeful and exuberant. Because of the Keratacona, I just can’t see well with glasses and I hope these new lenses that correct astigmatism will alleviate that. I am also extremely excited about grocery day. Kroger has a new line of frozen meals and I told mom to get me a varied mix of 22 meals and four 2-liter diet 7up. I hope mom will buy me some very interesting food.
