ON THE BACK BURNER

Jan.12

It's not often that you go to a Home Improvement store and get something you can write about.I was giving information to a customer service person for a military discount that they give, and the woman taking the information, was very chatty.. ((I saved $17.48) The woman was telling me that her elderly father lives with her. Not newsworthy. Then she tells me that when she was in her 20's, he told her that he was not her biological father. Her Mother had had an affair. Wow. That was newsworthy. What am I supposed to say here. She continued that her Mom had died when she was a teen and that she was the baby of the family. All  this while she put my info into the computer. I love home improvement stores,I like to walk the aisles and look at everything.They are right up there with Best Buy and Office Depot and Ace Hardware. But I usually don't get a story line when I go to them. But then, I never asked for a discount .

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
