Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
-Judy Garland

Picture this. I’m in the grocery store (I find myself there quite often). I put a 10 pound bag of dog food in my shopping cart. I go to the check out and I pick the bag up to hoist it onto the belt for checkout. It was tilted on its side so I kinda picked it up from the side of the bag. Upon picking the bag up (this would be the hoisting part) THE ENTIRE CONTENTS OF THE BAG….KIBBLE…flew out of the bag and covered the belt..the floor the place where the check out girl was standing.. I’m telling you the darn thing EXPLODED! I was standing there with a deflated sack of Beniful dog food and my mouth wide open! Have you ever spilled a tiny cup of water? It feels like there was 10 gallons in the tiny cup. Well this is how my Great Dog Food Caper felt! I asked the girl if she would like for me to move to another check out.. I think she really wanted me to move to Iraq! What could I do..clean it up? Scoop up dog food and put it in my purse/CLUTCH??? The funny part of this is that I actually thought to myself. “Pat you gotta start carrying your camera…this is good blog stuff….” Oh well. I went to the check right next door and said to the girl. “Aren’t cha glad I didn’t get in your line first…oh…I need another bag of dog food.” They sent someone to fetch it for me!

The newly weds left yesterday..sniff sniff…I miss them already. I think I want to go back to the days when families lived together. Well maybe not because then I would be living in a cave and I don’t know where I would plug in my sewing machine.

I stuck in a couple more wedding photos. Remember the part where I said I wouldn’t bore you with more wedding stuff…I LIED! I will try to do better in the future…OFF TO THE GROCERY STORE. (I called ahead and told them I was coming)
