...I played the "Happy Birthday" song in the tea room! Three of those were within about 10 minutes of each other. Folks were starting to think that was the only song I knew! I guess September is the big birthday month.
That makes me think of Sam. (It doesn't take much for make me think of him. :) His big day is Tuesday of next week. However wonderful he may be I do believe he is the hardest person I have ever had to shop for in my entire life, ever. Sometimes Sharper Image or Brookstone has some kind of little gadget that might be good. (Besides the typical shirt I give him every year.) Today, though, my Garmin-type thing in my car was sending me on a wild goose chase. First to Southlake for Sharper Image. It's closed. Then to Grapevine Mills for Brookstone. Closed. Yesterday I went to Brookstone at Northeast Mall, found something I thought might work, then waited and waited and waited, and waited some more, for the only salesperson to get off the phone. I was even waving at him. He acted like he didn't see me. He was too immersed in his phone call. From his end of the conversation (his apologies) I could tell he was being chewed out by someone higher up. Well, no wonder.
I'll close with this picture I took at Montgomery St. Antique Mall yesterday. It's a nonbirdlover's birdhouse...Notice the knife and fork.
I hope that's not too sick for you.
