Friday

Well, the rain is gone....it's been cool but sunny today.  I took a ride with Bob down to Olympia, so he could pay his union dues.  He dropped me off at Shipwreck Beads while he went to take care of his union business.  He's been retired for almost 4 years and he walks in and they said "hey, do you want to go to work?"  When he was working, he'd sit on the "out of work"  list for months sometimes, waiting to be called out on a job.  Now he's 66 years old, tired & retired and they want to know if he wants to go to work.  By the way he was a commercial plumber & pipe fitter for over 35 years....at times it was a very physical, hard job...definitely not a suitable job for an old guy.  LOL

I browsed around Shipwreck Beads...and found some new charms and some little gold and silver split rings so I can add the charms to my gold chains.  I also got a black velvet necklace neck display thingy so I can display & photograph necklaces for eBay.

After we left there, we stopped at the Goodwill in Lacey.  I found a pair of Tommy Hilfiger jeans for women for $5.99.  I was so thrilled !  Having worked for so long, I am very short on regular, around the house clothes. I have one pair of jeans, which I wear around the house, out in the yard, etc. Yesterday, I was out painting in that pair of jeans.  So I'm happy to have a inexpensive pair now that I can feel comfortable wearing for projects around the house.

Shortly after I got home my son stopped by.  He wanted me to put an engagement ring on Craig's List for him.  Poor kid...two engagement rings are in his possession.  The store would only take them back within 90 days and unfortunately the engagements lasted longer than 90 days.  Does anyone need an engagement ring?

Oh...they are just saying the rain is coming back.  At least I guess that's what they mean, when they mention;  "pitter, patter on your windshield."
