I went to LA for my daughter’s birthday and after much
discussion it was decided I should sleep at my son &
daughter-in-law's house because it was closer to the
freeway and I had to be back in Santa Barbara by 11. I
had a luncheon to go to in Santa Barbara that was
honoring my friend. She’s done such good work , I
definitely wanted to go. So, I brought my dressy clothes
and set the alarm for 8. Those of you who do not know
me, don’t know how difficult it is for me to get up at that
hour because I don’t sleep well at night, I love to sleep in
the morning hours. But set it at 8:00 I did. I had to wake
up, get dressed, put makeup on. Put on tennis shoes,
with high heels sitting next to me for a quick change
once I get there. I was only 15 minutes late so I was very
happy, thinking people would still be piling in. I pulled
in the front of the hotel and there were no people piling
in. Oh oh! I got that sinking feeling that I have had
before, but I soldiered forward anyway, “Excuse me, I
asked, Where is the luncheon today?” Knowing full well
as I was asking, what he was going to answer. “We have
no luncheon here today, he said, and of course, I knew
he was right. So, I drove in from LA and here I was all
dressed up at 11:00. I called Bob and asked if he wanted
to have lunch with me, fortunately, he said yes. Thank
god for husbands!
Want to hear the kicker??? It was for the Alstheimer’s
Luncheon. It’s in two weeks. Well, at least I didn’t miss
Guess I’m not 60 anymore!!
This one is for you, Gerd!
