Don’t I Feel Special!

I headed out about 10 this morning to retrieve my wife. She had been Landon sitting up in Katy since Sunday because Landon was out of school on Spring Break. But now it looks like that retrieval is only temporary.

I met Jan, Brandi, and Landon at the Cheddars near Brandi’s work for a nice lunch. Jan had her usual Key West Chicken and Shrimp, while I got my usual Vegetable Plate that included a bowl of their Chicken Tortilla Soup.

I mentioned a few weeks back that while we were up in Athens last month, I found out that one of the girls I dated there back in 1967 had died last March. So I had trying to track down her younger sister Anne to pass on my condolences. So I had to do a deep dive into the Net trying to get in touch with her.

And after going through eight phone numbers, I left her a voicemail, telling her I was a voice from the past, but not giving my name.

Well, during dinner she called me back. But for some reason the call(s) wouldn’t connect. So she texted me, wanting to know who was calling. So I sent her this.

Let’s see. I dated your sister Jane back in 1967 and even took you out once when Jane was grounded. I think that might have been your first date.  Plus you, Jane, and your mother used to wrestle me and try to pin me down. Remember?

She texted back, “Can’t remember back that far.”

So I told her my name.

Still nothing.

Well, Don’t I Feel Special.

So I sent her these two.

NOW she remembered. Thank goodness.

Once my identify was established, we had a nice chat about old times.

It was really good to hear from her.

After we got home this afternoon, we got a call from Brandi saying that Landon’s Spring Break had been extended for another week. So I’m only getting to keep Jan until next Monday. Then I’ll have to give her back.

According to https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ there were 415 new cases of WuFlu today with 1 new death.

I told Jan this afternoon that I have a unopened tube of Lysol Disinfectant Wipes down in the Water Bay. I figure if we wait about a month we should be able to trade it for a new truck.
