First, the weather. More rain, which lasted until roughly 6 pm. Will it stop now, and *not rain* tomorrow? Wait and see, I guess. ::please please please!::
Legal stuff this afternoon. It looks like I will be getting new tires next Thursday, which will be nice. Very nice since the tires I have are... *very* *dangerously* *old*. Can we say 'almost bald, with wires showing through'? Yup, we can. ::shudders:: So, new tires -- Yay!
After that, I went to talk to Marilyn G. She's an older lady of 80, and she knows my 'story'. Which is to say, she knows a lot of my family background, having known me for many years. More to the point, she grew up in the area and thus understands a lot of little... nuances, I guess. I know I've put some of my family history and other stuff on here but in some ways, it's only touching the surface. Because obviously, there's (a) a certain limit to what I feel comfortable posting online and (b) it's hard to know exactly *what* may or may not be relevant. Anyway... we had a nice long talk and I do feel better about certain things.
Then I went to do some grocery shopping. Unfortunately I hit the rush hour for the store, and I got trapped in. I tried for over 15 minutes to back out, and I kept getting 'horned'. So finally I gave up, went back in and told customer service what had happened and that I was leaving but would be back. Which is how I ended up calling Summer and taking her out to the Blue Moon for coffee. We talked for awhile, then went next door to the book store and looked around. Then she took me back to my car, and at long last I managed to leave. Next time I will park on the side, where there is less traffic coming in.
Ok, it's been a long day and I still have groceries to unload. Luckily most of it is non perishable but I still want to get it inside.
Back later on.
