|That's snow on the ground folks at BJ's this morning! EMERGENCY!|
If it's Sunday morning, it's BJ's time! This morning Bill and I made our usual regular Sunday morning trek to Millsboro and the BJ's Wholesale Club store. Time to stock up again!
I was out of Panera loaded potato soup, hummus and besides, I had my December coupon book. SPEND RON SPEND!
We made our usual rounds in the giant warehouse, all the Usual Suspects were there. Not quite as extreme as Walmartians but close…..very close.
Upon leaving we were rudely greeted with SNOW! Yes Virginia, SNOW! WTF?
Earlier in the week I was talking to someone and they said "Oh, I miss the snow." Say what? "Whatchoo talkin about Willis? Folks, I do not miss the snow. I lived in Pennsylvania long enough to get all my appreciation of snow that stayed on the ground from the first snowfall in November until the last frozen remnants melted in early April. Oh no folks, I definitely do not miss the snow.
|Get the snow shovels out! Stock up on milk and bread!|
I drove our Subaru Forester to BJ's but Bill insisted on driving back home. He said "You don't know how to drive in the snow." Oh how long have I heard this lament? I don't even argue after forty-nine years of that tired old evaluation of my driving abilities. I do have to admit that Bill has more driving experience than I do, after all he's been driving for about one hundred and ten years but come on, I can drive in the snow. But we have enough other things to fight about, I just give in on the "you don't know how to drive in the snow" mantra.

We did get home in one piece. No accidents, thank God. All the straight roads down here in Delaware, you would be surprised the number of accidents. That's because we have more than our fair share of crazy assed drivers but I digress.
After we got home, and unloaded our Contribution to the Local Economy, I had lunch then my usual afternoon nap.
After Nap Time, it was time to finish off my Christmas cards. Bill bitched about that too. "Who are all these people we're sending cards too?" This year our Christmas card features our wedding day. He was concerned that I would send them to the WRONG people. And who might that be? We got married Bill. That's a fact. Time to bust out of that closet door. He said he didn't want to upset anyone. Hey folks, if you know me and you know Bill….we got married this year on our 49th anniversary. That's news that I'm sharing and wishing everyone a Merry Christmas at the same time and a wonderful and glorious new year. Poor Bill, he's still of the old school that he doesn't want to ruffle anyone's feathers. I say it's time to ruffle feathers. Don't you agree?
