Nope none around here recently! But I just had one of those moments tonight where I said something from long ago and found myself explaining to my sweet and patient husband. His only question was whether it was a long story or not. When I assured him it wasn't, he asked if it would take me a long time to tell it. . . (He thinks some people take entirely too long to tell a simple story - he should know! But we won't go into that!) This post is mostly for my siblings. Sorry to the rest of you casual lurkers! To make a long story short. . . The other day driving through town, we noticed that these people were driving a car that had been sitting "FOR SALE" in their yard for quite some time. We thought maybe someone might have finally bought it. Well, on the way home from church tonight, we noticed that the car was sitting back in the yard where it has been sitting. Jon commented that it must not have been sold. I said, "Maybe they were just test driving it." Then on second thought I said, "or maybe the owners just needed to drive it for some reason." Then since I was on a roll, I added, "or maybe they just needed to drive it so it wouldn't get messed up from sitting so long." And then I said those magic words that conclude any nosy musings. . . "OR MAYBE they're having a birthday party!" Then I came back to real life and realized that Jon had absolutely NO idea what would have made me say something so random about someone trying to sell their car! It took a few minutes to even remember what started the whole birthday party thing, but it got funnier as I remembered the story! VERY random - I know, but I thought you might appreciate this funny memory with me! And if you need a little memory jogger, think Jeff's, the neighbors, and his mom making beans for supper on his birthday!!
