I was up too late watching "African Queen" and "Notorious" last night. They don't make movies or actors like that anymore. I didn't need Cary and Ingrid to take off their clothes to know what was in their hearts -- old Hitch made it very clear. And Bogart and Miss Katherine weathered their perilous trip with nary a cuss word. Amazing. As a result of this frivolity, I awakened to the phone ringing and answered to hear, "Hey!!!! Shaughnessy and I just passed the Dover exit and will be at your place in twenty-five minutes!!!" Yikes!!!! I took a quick shower and got dressed even quicker and was waiting as he and Shaughn arrived. One of these days that dog is going to flatten me when he greets me. I'm the only one he jumps on. Sigh. Jeff announced that we were going to drop Shaughn off at his house, check things and go to lunch at Bender's -- so much for my plans to get this post up sooner. He says I'm not spontaneous enough. I said, "So sue me!" but postponed a couple errands until later. Lunch/dinner/whatever at Bender's is a dining delight.
* I had to go to the Deputy Registar's office this afternoon to renew my driver's license. I was pleasantly surprised to be served almost immediately because it's always a busy busy place. I was delighted that I passed the eye test without glasses and that the photo was okay (and doesn't look like it belongs on the Post Office wall) and I realized, as I was signing and dating the form, that it was Tax Day and commented that was why they weren't busy. The young lady laughed and agreed. As I paid the $26.50, I mentioned that my first license only cost $3.00. She laughed again.
* One of the newest additions to my blogroll is Russ' Filtered News. It's really excellent blog and always well-documented and speaks to all of who feel vaguely uncomfortable with politics today. This post recalls a time when the Republican Party had honor and integrity. I remember those days. I will add that the Democrats aren't what they used to be either. I think y'all will find it interesting. Sigh.
* Tuesday was Dr. Maria and it was an okay visit. She rearranged my meds and told me to give another med a tryout. She sorta looked askance that I've lost weight and wants me back in two months. Sigh. (Jeff commented on my weight, too, today -- like I don't notice that my jeans are looser.)
* Keith Olbermann exposes some disturbing info re: The Tea Party Express:
Well the phone just rang and Jeff is heading in my direction in a half hour so we can go get a sandwich and a brew. God knows where he'll drag me tomorrow. Sigh.
Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!
