On-line orders – Some work out and some are a crap shoot. I had an experience this week that I swear was a story line for Saturday Night Live. It’s a post in itself but I’m wondering if I can capitalize on my experience. Yoo hoo! Saturday Night Live! I have a great skit for you!
Speaking of ordering on-line – Retailers complain that people don’t come into stores. I like to see or feel before I buy. I shopped for a shower curtain at several different stores but found nothing I liked. Those things can look cheap or be icky. (Icky is a technical term.) It was all ugly patterns. (Ugly is anything I don’t like.) Lots of geometrics. Nothing soft with colors that work for me so I went on-line. I found something perfect. I shop on-line because retailers aren’t carrying much and their target audience is people who like ugly stuff.
Rural roads – It’s been a long time since I lived on rural roads. I forgot how dangerous it can be. I’m not really “in the country” but the roads locally don’t have much of a shoulder with no pavements or curbs. That doesn’t stop walkers and bikers. It’s hard to see the walkers. It would be very easy to hit one. There are wonderful walking paths in the area. People should stick to them and wear bright colored vests for visibility. Bicycles are even worse. Yesterday a biker (the pedaling kind) blew past me going faster than I was driving. This was on a narrow curvy road with loose gravel shoulders and lots of hills. Loose gravel is like ball bearings.
The angle of the sun – In the spring and fall when the sun is lower in the sky, driving east ion a sunny morning is hazardous. I take a specific route because it’s shaded but there is one intersection where the sun is blinding. Fortunately there is a stop light there. Sometimes it’s difficult to see the light from all the glare. The position of the sun will change around the time change so I can go through it for another few weeks! I haven’t found sunglasses that work for that sun intensity.
So how was your week?
