Mr. C and I went out to lunch the other day and we had a little time to kill before we went to talk to the doc about my surgery; so we dropped into Lowes just to walk around. Naturally the first place I head towards is the garden center. Right before we got to the door to go outside I noticed that a group of guys were standing around talking about the Christmas displays. (*SIGH*)
At the same time, I noticed that there was a clearance tag on a metal pergola floor sample. I glanced at it and saw that even at almost 1/2 off, I didn’t want to pay $400.00 for it.
WELL, one of the afore mentioned guys was the manager and he took notice of me glancing at the afore mentioned clearance tag and said… “You want it? I’ll make you a good deal!”
So, I said “ What kind of deal?”
and HE said in a hushed tone… “I’ll let you have it for… $200.00”
I said “SOLD!!!”
Happy birthday to me!
Other odds and ends…
This is one of the culprits that is dining on my hostas
I’ll probably never wear these cute shoes again. Actually, I hardly ever wore them since I’m all about the comfort these days, but the POINT is that I could wear them if I wanted to!
Notice the slight ever-present swelling on that ankle… there’s gonna be a nice scar there soon enough.
So I don’t have to navigate the stairs, I set up a bed in the sunroom.
Looks like I’ll be sleeping on the couch!
