One upholstery class down and one to go! Last night was miserable. If it were not for my buddies in the class, I think I would be done - stick a fork in me. While were were all working or hanging out waiting on the teacher to be helpful, one of the ladies in class came over to my chair and joined in our conversation. Like the rest of us, she is older, heavier, and sillier. She commented on how nice my chair was turning out. I said that I was planning on sitting in it and eating bonbons. The Diva said we should eat bonbons at her poolside next week. Out of the blue, the lady added, "And have an Egyptian man fanning us and feeding us grapes." Her statement so caught me off guard, I cracked up. She is definitely invited to the poolside party.
Yesterday morning, I left the house with Toby at 6:30 AM and drove in the pouring rain to WF. Mom had an appointment with Dr. Ho. He is an older Asian man - extremely tall and thin, with a loud and fast way of speaking. He was a bit hard to follow, but he was great. He flirted with mom, teased her, made her laugh, and told her she looked good for an 80 year old woman - nothing wrong with her. He sent us on our way with a few simple instructions. I think I love this man.
Mom and I picked up lunch at Chili's and took it home to Jesse and Adam (my nephew). We had a nice visit and lunch. Because of my upholstery class, I could not stay in WF for long. I drove home in the pouring rain. All of this rain is good, but not much fun to drive through. At least we did not get the storms that Dallas got. Fortunately, most everyone I know in the Metroplex came through the storms with no damage. I know that others were not so fortunate. Tis the season. It is kind of ironic that my cousin, Mario who came to supper last week, was worried about the tornadoes in this area. He is working in Ardmore at the Noble Foundation. When he started work there, first thing he was shown was the basement in case of tornadoes - kind of freaked him out. Mario kept saying he had been through hurricanes, but was worried about tornadoes. Well, it was a good thang he was in Ardmore 'cause the tornadoes were in his hometown - Dallas. It happens!
I'm off to tutor. Have a good hump day.
