Tuesday here in the heart of central Illinois. I am resigned to the wait for the new glasses and put that thought in the ‘Don’t go there’ part of my brain.
I have been busy this morning. My daughter went with me to the DMV office to get a new $99 sticker for my car license plates. I don’t know what it is, but I just don’t like that place. When I first moved here and went to get a sticker they took my Korean War license plates away from me. The reason was “Ms. De, you are not a veteran, your husband was, therefore you are not entitled to Korean War plates.” I didn’t think that was fair but I went along with it mainly because I had no choice. The thought did cross my mind to get in touch with my congressman but I figured he was way too busy making the cover of various magazines. Anyone reading this from my area will instantly know who I am talking about. http://www.menshealth.com/fitness/aaron-schock-fitness Anyway, the sticker is on my plate and I am good to go for another year.
Then we went to Peoria and I purchased the new TV which is due to be delivered tomorrow. They were very helpful and I hope there is no hangup with getting me hooked back up to my beloved (not) Comcast. I had such a laugh while waiting for the paperwork to be all drawn up for the TV. One elderly gentleman (yep, even older than me) was making arrangements to have something delivered tomorrow. He told them that he didn’t know where he would be living tomorrow but I think I know where I am living now. I burst out laughing. Have you ever heard Billy Ray Cyrus sing “Where Am I Gonna Live When I Get Home?” The words to that song popped into my mind immediately. Poor old soul. I looked at him and we smiled at each other.
“Where am I gonna live when I get home?
My old lady's thrown out everything that I own.
She meant what she said
when she wished I was dead
So, where am I gonna live when I get home?”
Words by Billy Ray Cyrus the pride and joy of Flat Woods KY, just up the road from my WV sis.
My daughter and I ate at the Golden Corral. We were going to Olive Garden but it was on the other half of the city. It was altogether a very nice morning. Thank you to my daughter!
Partly sunny and 68 degrees here today. I hope you all are enjoying it. Stay safe and be happy!!
