Yeks…. It’s coming our way…..
Simon and Garfunkel's Concert in Central Park
Right now my husband is watching his new DVD that we got at Target last Saturday night. We found a “Simon and Garfunkel in Central Park” DVD for $ 5.50. We grabbed it up and just now have our first chance to listen to it. Ahhhh….. Classics from our day. Some of my favorites are: The Sound of Silence, Slip Sliding Away, Still Crazy after all these years, Scarborough Fair, Homeward Bound, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Wake Up Little Suzie, Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard and others.. Even my 27 year old daughter likes Simon and Garfunkel.
I can not believe we have hurricane breathing down our neck. This is unbelievable. Already Wal-Mart is out of batteries, tuna, bread and anything you would need for a storm. I was going to go to Sam’s this morning to get batteries and ended up doing another chore that took more precedence. By this evening batteries were hard to find. I ended up at Walgreen’s grabbing up type “C” batteries. I went to a connivance store for bread. I guess after Katrina every one is edgy and shopping early. My son used up all my batteries in his fancy radio last week so there I was with out my extras. Well, I have them now. I can’t seem to get my eyes off the weather channel. Tonight my husband made me turn it off.
My son finished painting our bedroom yesterday and today the new carpet came. Thank goodness the new bed doesn’t come till late next week. We have also been finishing up the work on our rent house and it is about ready for the new renters. Tomorrow we pick up the new stove and refrigerator and take it down there. Do you see why I am praying that the hurricane goes somewhere else? I would love to have cancelled the whole thing until after the threat of the storm, but my husband did not want to put it off any longer. Please pray that the hurricane goes somewhere else. We live on the north side of Houston, about 75 miles from the coast, so he doesn’t think we will have too much of a problem as long as it stays under a Category 3. If it is a Category 4 or larger and we take a direct hit, then we have a problem. I am silently preparing to leave if it gets bad. We will take my husbands work truck and the little green car and high tail it. Bonnie’s car and my Toyota will go in the garage at the other house. (Fingers crossed) No, I’m not even going to say it. Never mind, I don’t want to jinx us. Hey Fred, I was thinking about your brand new dining room table and chairs. Ok, enough of this. I will probably be too busy to blog in the next few days. Well see what happens, pray for us.
