Shopping is exhausting! I was all set to sit down with a cup of coffee and read blogs. Blogger has hidden all the blogs I follow! So here I sit, coffee next to me and no good reading material. No-one to talk to.
Instead I turned on the TV and behold ..... Barry Manilow is serenading me. Wait, I think it is him. He is singing songs and it sounds like him. But, the face doesn't move. It is like a canvas stretched to frame. How does he make the sound come out of that slit of a mouth? Has he looked in a mirror lately? His face lacks character and dimension. I doubt that was the look he was going for.
Nothing wrong with a little upgrading, but, he looks as freaky as Michael Jackson! Aging offers some grooming challenges, for sure, but it also tells the story of a life. I often wondered why Larry Hagman never groomed his eyebrows. Those things were wicked and took on a life of their own, but at least his face moved when he spoke.
Who am I to judge? I did pluck my goatee before I ventured out. I hit the thrift store and scored lots of jeans to cut up for my quilt. I think I may have enough to finish and I will post pictures.
From thrift store to WalMart. Time for refills on RX. I scoured the store for bargains as I waited for the refills. Bought a few groceries and was a little shocked at the price of ice cream. I wonder if I could learn to milk a cow at this late stage of my life?
I remember when WalMart opened their first store in Albany, GA. They boasted, "You're always next in line at WalMart!" They promised fast service and advertised that they would open another line if more than 3 customers were in line. Times have changed. The new slogan could just as well say that, "You're always in line at WalMart ....... always!" As I stood waiting for my turn at the conveyor belt, I read all the headlines on the tabloids and magazines.
It seems that an investigation into the death of Marilyn Monroe has been reopened and it has been determined that she was murdered. I am confused. Why is this important now? And who conducted this investigation? Are they anticipating an arrest and trial? Aren't all the key players in this drama now dead? I am just confused.
