Life in the Fast Lane

This is an old picture of my husband and myself leaving town. I honestly don't remember where we were going. I know it's a plane station, but I'm not sure where. My husband became very deaf in his older age and conversing with him in a public place was almost impossible. He even had a hearing aide. 
 One time we were sitting in the bus depot waiting for somebody to arrive on the bus. The place was crowded and we were just people watching while we waited. I noticed somebody rather strange looking so I leaned over to my husband and said in a low voice, "If I looked like that, I'd wanna get outta town too." He said, "What?" I said, "IF I LOOKED LIKE THAT, I'D WANNA GET OUTTA TOWN TOO." We got some attention for a couple minutes. Everybody was looking at us. I didn't think I was raising my voice that much. And nobody thought it was funny.

 I actually accomplished something today. I set out two tomato plants in pots on the patio. All I have to do is water them and watch them grow. That sounds so simple, but it was a major project for me. Go to the store and buy the things. I took out the old soil and put in new soil. Get the hose out of the shed and hook it up and clean off the patio.While I was out there I reset the automatic sprinklers. They have been coming on in the late afternoon when the wind is blowing like crazy. I don't know how they got set on PM in the first place. 
Just another day of my life in the fast lane.
