I’m currently sitting in the parking lot at Wally World, while my wife finds entertainment inside. On the way in, we passed the “disabled veteran” (maybe he is) panhandling at the entrance. He sat under his umbrella, as it was raining pretty heavily at the moment. Even with his hoodie up, you could see the fancy headphones that caused him to swing and sway a bit. I may have mentioned this before, but I saw the young, blond “struggling artist” panhandling there again the other day, and she’d gained some weight. Apparently she’s not struggling as hard as she once did.
My wife and I splurged and had lunch in a nice restaurant today, since it’s a holiday weekend. One guy kept staring at my wife as she ate, until he finally got food of his own. Another fellow kept yelling at anyone he knew who walked through the door. Plus the older couple beside us kept discussing (a little too loudly) things that I wouldn’t have discussed in public. My food was excellent, but my wife’s lasagna was mushy, so I suspect that it was left over from the night before and micro-waved. Overall, I guess you could call it an “interesting” experience.
Being Sunday, and us not in church still, I recalled a church that I saw in Tyler County this past week. There were no words over the door tying it to any location, family or denomination. It had only a large sign on the front lawn saying “Morning Worship – 10:30.” It sort of made me wish that it was in reasonable travelling distance of our home.
I just saw Vladimir Putin walk out of Wally World, get in his car and drive off. I wonder if the CIA knows he’s here? Probably not. © 2014
