in Dubuque. McKenzie went first and after her physical the doctor asked her some general safety questions:
Doc: Do you look both ways before you cross the street?
Doc: Do you wear a helmet when you ride your bike?
Doc: Do you wear a seatbelt?
(There was a long uncomfortable pause while the doctor was shooting daggers at me with her eyes.)
Doc: And why don’t you wear a seatbelt?
Mac: Because my bike doesn’t have one.
I thought I would fall off my chair laughing, it was so funny!
What gives the pretzel stand at the mall the right to charge such
exuberant prices? I ordered a large order of cinnamon pretzel bites and a large pop and it cost me over $15! The kids and I shared it but still that was little extreme for some dough and cream cheese dipping sauce. (But I must add that it was REALLY good.)
When I was a teen I remember going to the mall (on the bus) and
getting a giant pretzel dipped in my choice of sauce for around a buck. Hot Sam’s was the name of the joint and having your pretzel dipped in pizza sauce sprinkled with parmesan cheese was the bomb. Why is the cost of pretzels so high now?
I got lucky today though, we stopped at the bank and they were
having an ice-cream social for all members. So we had FREE ice cream sundaes for lunch. And it just so happened that my cousin’s daughter Megan was serving the ice cream so we got extra whipped cream on top. Yeah us!
My husband is learning a new song, one that I hate. He asked me
to find the CD for the song today and no store had it. Maybe that’s because it’s a stupid song? The band is called Old Crow Medicine Show and the song is called; Wagon Wheel. The chorus goes like this;
So rock me mama like a wagon wheel
Rock me mama anyway you feel
Hey mama rock me
Rock me mama like the wind and the rain
Rock me mama like a south-bound train
Hey mama rock me
Now explain to me how you rock someone like a wagon wheel? I know
Bob Dylan wrote the song but was he drunk or something? What do people find appealing about this song? Because TJ plays and sings at public venues it’s important that he learns a mix of different songs and this song is LOVED by people around here so I understand why he is learning it. But still I don’t get it. I love a song with meaning and this song has none. So you can imagine what it’s like for me hearing it over and over as he practices it. I’m about ready to ‘rock his guitar like a wagon wheel’ and throw it out in the yard!
Happy Friday Y’all!
