Catching Up

The way my hair was chopped in places bothered me. I went to the master bath, got my scissors and went to work. It isn’t perfect but it’s better. I do hope I can educate the haircutter and that she’ll stay the course.

ALDI (that stands for Albrecht Discount — it isn’t a name though that’s what it’s called) (and the company uses all caps) had some really good deals that were ending today. Four lub bags of navel oranges for $1.79 and avocados coming in at 39 cents each. Grapefruit was 33 cents each but I still have a few so I wasn’t interested in those. I shot myself in the leg and made ready to go to town.

Stopping at the mailbox, I found White Wave had sent the promised Silk coupons to replace the ones that had expired. Thankfully, these have an expiration date of 12/31/2016. I’d started to throw the others away and forget it when I thought it wouldn’t hurt to post a request on their Facebook page. A nice fellow by the name of Luis said no problem and there they were.

My favorite produce girl was on duty so we exchanged pleasantries. I was going to check out when I saw someone who looked familiar. Chasing her down wasn’t hard since she’d turned her cart to shop the Easter candy displays. It was my nurse friend. We parked and talked for quite a while. I don’t know how long but she’d start to go on her way and then remember to ask me something else. It was nice to visit with her. And, by the way, Easter is March 27.

The Fordhook supply is down to one bag, I think, so I stopped at the used food store to stock up. There weren’t any to be found anywhere. I’d wandered all up and down the aisles, which is something I don’t usually do, and found some interesting things. Even without the limas, I spent almost $14. It’s one place that doesn’t take credit cards so I paid in cash. Even ALDI is taking credit cards now!

Then it was home and getting unloaded. The cashier had put all 16 lubs of oranges in one bag so I split those up. I must’ve looked hardy today. I bought 13 avocados since I read on ALDI’s post announcing the credit card acceptance that unripe avos can go in the fridge and then be taken out as needed and ripened. Nine went in the fridge and four went on top. We’ll see how that works. The 13 came to $5.07. I should have avocados for the next few weeks — at least until they go on sale again.

The last time I was at the university super market, I bought half a dozen ginger Ginseng Up! so I sat down and had one. I rarely have one but I had a yen for it today.

While I ate my supper, I watched the Town Hall I missed last night. I thought both Bernie and Hillary did a good job. She was more specific but that’s nothing new. He was asked if he would be willing to be VP if Hillary got the nomination. He said he was running for President, not VP. She was asked if she would name him VP and she said all she could concentrate on is what is next.

Today is the day for more primaries. For the Republicans, the states are Hawaii, Idaho, Michigan and Mississippi. Trump has already been declared the winner in the last two. Democrat states are Michigan and Mississippi. Bernie is leading in Michigan but Hillary is projected to win Mississippi. I found there’s live feed for both parties on a Google search. It’s bare bones and simple with no pie charts or graphs with squiggly lines. Just what I like.

Oh! and I did some searching on youtube for the Star Spangled Banner and finally found a rendition that isn’t all souped up. It breaks with tradition at the very end but, otherwise, I was happy. And all parts are sung by one person.

That’s it for tonight, folks. Tomorrow is another day. Tomorrow night is the next Democratic debate. It’s supposed to live stream on the CNN. I’ve signed up for a reminder. Thursday night is the next Republican debate on CNN.

Unless something else pops up in the meantime, those two will be it for over a week, at least. March 21 is the Republican’s turn again but the Democrats are giving it a rest until April.

    Thank you for finding the “Star Spangled Banner” sung like it should be (except for that one very tiny exception). It is beautiful!!

      You’re welcome! I don’t think it should be subject to “interpretation”. The same person has done anthems from other countries, too. He has quite a vocal range.
