Anyway, I am much better now, since Tony and I went to Kerrville this afternoon to run a few errands. After I purchased stamps and mailed several letters, at the Post Office Sub-Station, I had Tony drop me off at Home Town Craft store, before he went over to Wild Birds Unlimited. "I won't be long and I will walk across the parking lot to Wild Birds Unlimited, because I need the exercise."
I had a blast looking around the craft store. I ended up buying some Sharpies, Crayon Markers, an adorable pig, a Sweet Swat, a pink, telescoping, fly swatter and a red hurricane LED lantern. I was thrilled with all of my purchases especially the red lantern, because it runs on two D cell batteries and it has a dimmer switch where I can adjust the light from low glow to super bright. And the lantern only cost me $12.99!
As I hoofed it, across the shopping center's parking lot, to one of our favorite stores, in Kerrville, I spotted Marguerite's van parked outside Wild Birds Unlimited where she works, so I picked up my pace, because I could not wait to show her my new purchases.
When I walked inside the store Tony, Linda, Tricia and Marguerite greeted me. "Nance," Tony said. "Look at all of the great stuff they have on sale. You need to check it out." So, as I visited and laughed with Marguerite and Tricia my eyes fell upon the most adorable bunny puppet. And it was half off!
"I've got to get this!" I said, as I picked up the cute puppet and held it in my arms. When I went to the checkout counter, Tony already had his bird seed stuff nicely arranged, on the counter, next to their homemade cookies, which I was really tempted to eat, but I didn't because I had eaten a big lunch.
On our way to the big H-E-B, Tony chuckled, and said, "I bet we run into Jim, The Mineral Man. Do you want to make a bet?"
"Okay, I'll bet that he won't be there, but I hope he is...."
"While we are shopping at H-E-B let's get the puppies some more toys to play with." And we did and Tony lost his bet with me about seeing our dear friend Jim.
When we got back home we fed the puppies and then unpacked our groceries and put them up. Then I asked Tony to please put the batteries inside my red lantern. But before he did, I took pictures of the toys and all of my purchases.
