Terry The Great Apron Finder
So I use an apron every meal I eat. This is because
I tend to spill, or should I say the people feeding me,
namely Herman and Terry, tend to spill on me. Terry goes
to the Town Wide Garage Sale in Broadalbin a few weeks
ago. She shows up one Monday morning with an off white
apron that’s 100% cotton with cow designs on it
that she bought for a quarter. I absolutely love this
next week we were at the Yankee Dollar store in Johnstown
Mall, Terry found two other aprons at a cost of a dollar
a piece. She has a great eye for finding stuff like this.
She also found me a pair of Levi shorts at Peebles Department
Store in Johnstown.
daughter Jamie always asks her mom how she knows what
size to get. According to Terry she can hold them up and
tell if they will fit. She learned to do this while raising
her daughter. I have to tell you that she has a great
eye. We just spent this morning shopping on line for white
denim shorts. I am happy to say that I found a pair for
$9.99. Now Terry isn’t thrilled about shopping on
the computer, but she somehow managed for me.
to shop on line, it’s fast easy and usually as cheap
as going to a store. The main difference is that the store
comes to you. Of course Terry can’t hold them up
to see if they fit, but she’s pretty much sure of
the sizing for me. I of course would go much smaller,
but Terry’s pretty insistent on my comfort.
writing this to you the third week in June. It has been
raining non stop for about a week. This greatly interferes
with my sun time. So much so that I’m thinking of
using my indoor tanning panel tomorrow as more rain is
predicted. I sure hope this summer will bring many sunny
days. I’ve even gotten in the habit of wearing regular
clothing as opposed to just a bathing suit. I really hate
this. I’m looking forward to hot sunny days sitting
in the lake.
I tell you my mom sent up a beach umbrella? It’s
nylon and really pretty colors. We have a little spool
table and the umbrella fits in it perfectly. My mom said
it was such a pain to send that it would have been cheaper
to send us the money and purchase it ourselves. But I’m
glad she made the effort, so thanks Mom! She also sent
an attachable personal umbrella for me to use attached
to my chair in case I get too hot. Yeah, like that’s
going to happen while sitting in the lake. But it was
a nice effort and I appreciate that too.
this concludes my story to you about aprons and umbrellas.
Pray for sunshine!
