Somethings Up

So I'm down at the SOCDS meeting this morning , exchanging wise and solemn comments on the various aspects of the world and local situations---when it occurs to me, that the LP hadn't given me his weekly shopping list, which is ALWAYS does for Tuesday shopping. My first thought was total panic---I must have failed to pick it up from the table, but no, I had looked at the table, picked up my keys there was no list THERE------why no list?? what has he got planned for us to eat for dinner (I have to explain how things go here---I cook meals three nights a week, and do the weekly laundry on Thursday's. the LP does the meals four nights a week, specifically for Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sundays---this IS Tuesday, its HIS Day, ---no shopping list??----not good---WE'RE GONNA STARVE!! I will have to ask him just what he has in mind for dinner tonight----when I pour his breakfast coffee in an hour------2:27PM----its been a TUESDAY-----First off, in regard to the missing grocery list------I'm embarrassed to admit this, but----turns out there was a list---Jerry convinced me I actually had torn it off th tablet, folded it up and he assumed had taken it to the bedroom to put in my wallet----after much thought I had to vague remember I really had done that-----except the list wasn't in my wallet this morning---after much searching, I found the list, ---I had tossed it into the waste paper basket---don't ask me why, I know my rights and I don't have to answer "why" questions.----Anyway having NOW found the list, I make a run to the store----dutifully finding each and every item on the list---the cream of asparagus soup, the thin sliced skinless chicken breast meat, the cook-in-the-bag/seasoning packet (McComick Seasonings), Anderson's Split Pea W/ham Soup, Corn Beef Hash, Pillsbury Crescent rolls-----and off to the checkout stand----and to my HORROR I can't find Jerry's Visa Debit Card!!!-------I had last used it to make his deposit at his bank yesterday morning-----the light comes on---I had failed to hit the return card button after getting my deposit receipt. Okay , call to the bank,nobody had turned in the card, new car has to be ordered, will be about a week----no activity on the account since the deposit---panic over.---EXCEPT NOW Jerry owes me for the groceries I ended up paying for with MY card.

Then after Jerry finally finished lecturing me on how one makes deposits at the ATM machine and gets ones card back before leaving-----and the groceries were put away---the doorbell rings and its the UPS dude, The camera that Pete N Judi sent me to play with had arrived. (Yaaaaaay!!) So have dutifully read the manual, and have learned how to use the camera in a basic way, and have learned how to take the pics from the camera and put then into my computer---- so you will be seeing pics soon guys---not exactly sure just what of ----got to practice a Lil bit first.
