‘What a night and day… oh dear, I puttered around most of the day doing some of this ‘n that and suddenly realized I had no milk or half ‘n half for my morning coffee.. had it black this morning… yuck !!
So I called my sister at the library to let her know I was gonna run to the store about 7 miles away ….got my shoes one( course I’m barefoot ..I’m a country gal ) got in my car and started out.
Just got started and what’s that on my windshield…. not raindrops… yeoh it is !!
Well I’ll hurry, I say to myself …so foot on gas petal and here I go..
Well it was not bad going over.. got there and hurriedly bought $85.00 worth of veggies, fruit and milk..
As I was signing my credit card a friendly lady standing by said “ we have to sign everythihg, don’t we?
I said “ yeah, sign your life away buying groceries “ so we chatted a minute or two and the nice girl carries my groceries out to the car and
WHAT IS THAT I HEAR… RIGHT, THUNDER AND THE SKY IT BLACK AS NIGHT…
Course I always talk to myself and
Maurine, you’ve done it now !!

RAIN LIKE YOU’VE NEVER SEEN HITS THE HOUSE..
WELL, SINCE I’M HUNGRY I GRAB
