THERE GOES THE SCHOOL BUS

Every morning before 7:15 the school bus comes down our road and back. You can know the time without checking the clock by the bus. I never dreamed a school bus kept such strict schedules and for kids having to wait out in this rain, it is vital for the driver to be on time. Why is that of significance? No clue – I just never rode a school bus and find it fascinating.

Yesterday we went to Tulsa to visit mother. We also had a doctor’s appointment for Ron. After a nice visit with mother and a review of her past few days, we left to run some errands before the appointment. It was a good thing we left early.

Our van broke down on Skelly Drive. The power steering went out and Ron struggled to maneuver the vehicle. I would not have had any idea what to do had this happened to me when I was alone.

The Firestone repair place on Peoria street helped us very quickly and at a low cost and had us back on the way to the scheduled appointment in plenty of time. However, the time for errands was gone. We’ll have to try to get my net for scrubbies another day.

The Firestone place did not have a waiting room so we walked over to the library and Ron read while I got on the internet. It was a relaxing way to spend the time.

Meanwhile, this was our granddaughter Beth’s 11th birthday. We did not catch a glimpse of her but did hear her sweet voice on the phone last night. She was thrilled with all her money and presents. It’s always fun to hear happiness in the grandchildren’s voices over lots of loot! Reminds me of the song, Material Girl. LOL

Last year we were under State wide burn bans because everything was dry. This year we are soaked to the bone. It is difficult to take care of chickens, cats, kittens, chicks, guineas, turtles, dogs, etc., in the pouring down rain. Instead of living “near the lake” we can almost claim to live “in the lake”. LOL


I apologize fo these ramblings. My kids would call this TMI (Too Much Information). Guess I better get into my day.

  1. Oh yes, my kids get beyond excited about money too. It's pathetic right? But I remember when money was innocent... that was before bills and adulthood and whatever.
    Tulsa? Hey!! We used to live in OK too - Lawton/Ft. Sill actually. Such a small place that was.
