Once we found Aaron and his insurance company check, we came all the way home to find the only branch of his bank open on Saturdays. They wouldn’t release the money because he didn’t have enough in his account to cover the insurance check in case it bounced. Tuesday, they said.
We took him back to base….the long way. Miles of beautiful rolling hills much like my neighborhood when I was a kid. I thoroly enjoyed the hour long ride. We discovered there was a gate just a couple of hundred yards away from us. He hadn’t known. In minutes we were back on the freeway headed south after arranging to do this again next Saturday.
Costco did have the Zyrtec replacement as Cetirizine for sixteen dollars a year versus 36 over-the-counter per month. Jackpot. On the other side of the coin, I brought home chocolate muffins. Did I say that?
Late afternoon with a half decorated tree under my belt, the Geezer announced he needed more outside lights. Back to Tar-jay we went. By the time we left the store, it was pitch black and I felt eight-thirty-ish. The tree was still half done.
We are off this morning for the earliest showing of “Hugo.” The tree is still half done, the lights are half up, but I feel optimistic anyway.
