On A Sunday Afternoon

A good Sunday at church. Worship was good. Dave said, "Sorry I kept missing your queues."

And I said, "You did?"

We are sooo in sync.

Tony and I grabbed lunch at Quiznos then stopped by friends, a deaf couple we met in the down town neighborhood. They were able to move to a nicer apartment and we hadn't seen them in awhile. They had a guest who was also deaf but lip read well and also had some hearing, so we were able to talk through translation rather than writing on paper. They are a neat couple.

Then off to Lowes to use a gift certificate given to Tony for Pastor Appreciation month. He wanted to get chairs for the back yard, but he rocks in them so hard, they break. First he breaks his, then mine.

So, we got a swing this time. We had to pay a little extra over what the gift card paid. 


I said, "Hey, the year I was born."

Tony grinned. But the check out dude was hilarious. An older guy, probably our age, but wasn't too comfortable in his job yet. I could tell he didn't want to look right at me, so he rolls his eyes around the check out station, finally passing my face. "No way. She wasn't born in '78."

 "I'm kidding," I said, "I was really born in '75."

He laughed. The nerve!

That's okay, Rachel, I mentioned in front of my 9 year old that I was born in 1973 and he said "1973!!! Man mom, that's like over 3 decades ago.

I sure miss him. He WAS such a cute kid!

Rachel Hauck said...

LOL, Sabrina. Too funny.

PS - What a wonderful "experience" to have this couple as your friends - & I'm so happy they were able to move to a nicer home. You and Tony are very special people.

Love you both so much - looking forward to Thanksgiving

Do I dare mention that I was born in '73? That's a great price for a swing! I've been sick, so shopping the end of season clearance has not been high on my priority list.

I have tried to converse with cashiers at times and felt I must have something on my face as they did not reply...

hope your chair works out and thanks for visiting my blog and for the book give away!
