And afterward Angel Marti decided what I needed now was lunch and a walk-around our town since it was Side-Walk Sale Days. She figured the diversion would be the ticket to re-focus me. We began with lunch at Potters (great Mexican food) on the patio. Our waitress was just the cutest young thing, so naturally I had to take her picture....look at those eyes & lashes...sigh!!
Then off to find anything we couldn't live without....(ha, at this stage there is nothing I have to have that I can't live without) but there is always a trinket or two that finds it's way into a bag to bring home. How about this? I love orange, felt the need to bring the vase home and placed one of my orange zinnias in it....they were made for each other.
Our local firemen were standing on the corners collecting money for the Fireman's Fund. Marti's son, Steve (aka Daddy to Sammie), as a child was mesmerized by anything to do with Firemen. Each week, if Steve was a good little boy, a trip to the firehouse was always the payoff. Marti became friends with all the fireman, some are still working, but most have retired and now there are 180 fireman that protect our fair city from fires. Al was particularly friendly and Marti insisted that I snap his picture.
You know what, everybody likes to get their picture taken....so all you out there that are hesitant, have no fear, if you have a smile, they have a smile.
The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, only one more day with Mac (the Huskie) and the grass needs cutting....have a great Saturday!!
