Thought for the day…….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 18th day of July, 2014.

A bit later than usual here because I was at work for 6:30 to help with a pancake breakfast.

It was a huge success.

Today is the parade for our “K Days” which is our summer fair or exhibition.

 

I wanted to share a cute story with you all.

Yesterday morning after my visit to the dentist, I had stopped at Shoppers Drug Mart which is almost next door to my dentist to pick up an umbrella.

I had walked to the dentist from my house and managed to stay dry.  (my last umbrella broke and I had not replaced it).

Mother Nature was kind ….. it started to rain hard after I was at the dentist.

So after I picked out my umbrella I walked over to cash to pay for it.

There was an older woman ahead of me and the cashier said to her “I gave you a present.”

The woman smiled, paid for her purchase,  said “thank you.” and walked away.

As the cashier rang in my umbrella she said to me “I gave you a present.”

I thought to myself “sweet” and not thinking to ask (as my mouth was frozen and I didn’t feel much like talking) …. just finished paying and left.

As I put my receipt into my purse I checked the receipt and saw in capital letters ” SENIORS DISCOUNT. ”

My mouth dropped even lower, and I thought to myself “she thought I was a senior” and then followed by “hey I got $3.00 off my umbrella” ….. SWEET.

I laughed to myself all the way to the bus stop.

I guess in some places I would be considered a senior and there are times sometimes in the early morning and late at night that I feel a bit “senior.”

Then I was thinking that perhaps because with the freezing in from the dentist my mouth was all droopy and there is nothing like that to age a gal.

Oh well …… makes for a cute story …..

I hope that you all are having a fantastic Friday.

Time to go and have a walk with Mr. Alvin before it gets too hot.

I work tonight so it would be very late when we walk tonight.

Happy Friday.

Always Smiling……

Special Hello to: my fellow bloggers ….. keep writing ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

I am still stuffed from the pancakes and am very grateful for the treat.
