Then again it COULD BE the allergy meds I keep popping to stop my nose from dripping and my chest from coughing. I hear the ragweed is horrendous in these parts, so that may be the problem. The pills take care of the blowing-coughing-sneezing, but then I am half asleep.
Jerry and I had to go to The Skin Clinic this morning. He had to see about a recurring spot on his nose. I had to see the Lazer Lady, Peggy, to have the little spot on my cheek REtreated for the 4th time. She had the lazer SO HOT today, I felt like I had been put face down on a hot grill when she got done with me. My eyes had been crying underneath the protective pads, and I didn't even know it. Whether it goes completely away or not, I don't think I will return for any more of that torture!
After that, I asked if we could go over to the car lot where a truck was that we had been looking at. We only went when the place was closed, so we had not been able to open the doors to look inside. I HAVE to check out the cup holders before I buy any vehicle. So we drove over to the lot where the trucks were all lined up in a looooooooooong row. I noticed just before we got there that a GIANT ugly grasshopper was on the hood of our car right outside my side of the window.
I KID YOU NOT! That grasshopper had one leg up in the air waving it around!
Fortunately, I was able to get this picture.
We drove into the gate and wound our way down into the very back of the lot where the trucks were all lined up. We WERE going to get out of the car and see if the doors were unlocked on the Blue Jean Metallic truck that we liked so we could look inside, BUT
Just as I went to open my door, I noticed a THOUSAND or more grasshoppers all over the cement.
They were everywhere we looked! HUGE grasshoppers totally covered the entire area where all the trucks were parked. They must have eaten all their children. I read that grasshoppers actually will do that.
I guess the grasshopper on my hood was the GREETER grasshopper welcoming me to Grasshopperville.
Jerry and I decided we did not want to be attacked by huge grasshoppers, so we just turned around and headed out of that place. YUK!
Phylly wanted to see a picture of what I am working on, so I took this very short video. This dress is NOT DONE -- not even close. It is just basted together to check the fit.
Since I took this short video yesterday, I have moved the bust dart down one inch -- taken it in under the arms -- and I have lots more to do. You certainly can get the idea though. WHY a Maxi? I don't know. I figure if I get tired of it as a Maxi, I can always shorten it to knee length, and if I get tired of it that way, I can shorten it to blouse length. I may be wearing this one until I'm 90!
Need to call the store to see if they can live without me today. I came home from the doctor with Jerry so he could get his own vehicle, and neither one of us has budged since we got here an hour ago. Sure is nice to be the boss at times like this.
