So That’s What It Is . . .

Today would have been a good day to stay at home, since it poured down all night, and into this morning, and afternoon. But we needed groceries, and of course wanted lunch at Snooze as usual.

Don’t know if a lot of people were taking this week off, but Snooze wasn’t near as busy as is normal on a Tuesday, but the better for us. Snooze is one of those places that texts our cellphone when your table is ready, and I left my phone back at the rig.

And of course Jan seldom carries her phone with her anyway.

When we had breakfast at Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Table, Jan got her usual Avocado Toast, but she was kind of disappointed in Magnolia Table’s version vs. the version she gets at Snooze.

Here’s Joanna’s version,

and here’s what she gets at Snooze.

And yes, at $9.50, Joanna’s is about $3 cheaper, but Jan thought it didn’t really measure up to their other dishes.

Next up was a quick stop by the office, and then across the street to the H.E.B for more of that delicious Lola Savannah Texas Pecan Coffee.

Then it was off to WalMart for the majority of our groceries. I had hoped that the prescriptions I had put in to refill would be ready, but No.

Both WalMart and Sam’s Club recently updated their apps, including their prescription renewals. But in doing so they seemed to have really screwed up our accounts.

Jan and I had separate accounts with both stores, but now our accounts have been combined in some cases, and other past prescriptions no longer appear in our histories.

It worked fine before, so why do they keep having to ‘improve’ it.

Just leave well enough alone. Please.

Then our last stop was at Kroger’s for some of Jan’s favorite Sugar-Free Bread and Butter pickles.

And of course, once we were on our way home, it started pouring down once again. But luckily by the time we got back to the rig, it had tapered off to a light drizzle.

So That’s What It Is.

For the last couple of weeks I’ve been under the weather with a lot of back/leg pain. I had attributed it to lifting our truck’s wheel/tire combos back into place after doing the brake job on the front wheels a couple of weeks ago.

But the more I thought about it, I realized that I’ve actually  had this same problem for years. And it’s probably due to one of my many misadventures during my wild and misspent youth.

And according to my ophthalmologist, that same misadventure is probably also behind the Fuch’s Dystrophy problem with my left eye.

But I was finally able to put a name to it due to a head’s up from Nick and Terry.  Since Nick suffers from the same thing, he said it sounded like Sciatica.

And looking over the 10 Symptoms of Sciatica online, I have approximately 8.5 of them. Luckily I don’t suffer from #10, which is the complete loss of bladder and bowel control.

Jan’s also happy about this, too.

So now I’ll try  to get an appointment  with my doctor for next week.

Thought for the Day:

I know that there are people who do not love their fellow man, and I hate people like that.
