On The Road Again....

I may be posting sporadically for the next week or so. I'm in the midst of helping daughter number two move into a new apartment in Seattle, and helping daughter number one move to San Francisco.

Well, I should qualify the "help" part - I'm doing a lot of driving and supervising. Which still tires me out considerably but not nearly as much as hefting sofas and mattresses around would.

It's been interesting so far. Daughter one and I cracked up today - we were waiting at a red light behind a blue haired elderly lady whose head scarcely was taller than her steering wheel. We could see her rummaging around in her gargantuan purse sitting next to her - while sitting up high in my SUV I see the darndest things. So the light turned green and Gramma still had her nose buried in her purse. We waited....and waited....and waited.....then finally I gave a teensy little toot on the horn to get her attention. She whirled around to glare at us and FLIPPED ME THE BIRD!

Oh. My. Gosh.

Sweet little old ladies aren't supposed to even know what that gesture means, are they??

She ripped through the intersection just as the light changed from yellow to red leaving daughter and I howling with laughter and waiting for the light to change. Again.

I think I've never been given the finger by anyone over seventy five. It's a new bird age record, I think.
