Sunday afternoon and it has been a peaceful weekend with not too much going on except some much needed rain. It was 42 around lunch time and damp so it really felt cold and unfriendly.
Lately Linda & I have been thinking about things we haven't seen for a lot of years. One of them is "Georgia Hash". I used to stock my dad's shelves in his store with cans of Georgia Hash and ate my share as well. For any of you that are familiar with Brunswick Stew which is a southern staple, Georgia Hash is very similar. We paid close attention when we were in the grocery store the last few days and did not see any and wonder if it still exists. Guess I should have Googled it prior to writing this.
Another item was tall glass Pepsi Cola bottles. We did see some of them in a store Friday and didn't look at the price but it must have been about a dollar or even more. I can still remember handing them over the counter at my dad's store for a nickle.
Coca Cola in small glass bottles were very popular when I was a child. It was just enough for some of dad's customers to wash down a BC or Goody headache powder in the morning. Seemed they could not get their day started without that dose of miracle meds.
As the title of the post says, Monday's Coming and it should be interesting for me as my boss should know by now that I have decided to refuse his last offer to stay employed and will be officially retiring as soon as possible after March 1st. He tempted me with the thought of a vehicle and gas paid but I really need to get this hour commute on the interstate off my daily schedule. Much of that is done when it is dark and that just adds to the frustration since I don't seem to see as well at night and if it is raining I have trouble seeing the line that divides the lanes. Yes it is time to stay closer to home.
Once I got that thick bandage off my hand yesterday I am able to type with no difficulty. I just have to be careful about lifting heavy objects or pushing doors or things with that hand. I can already tell that what they did has taken the problem away so life should be a lot better from here on out. Well my friends it has been a rambling afternoon post but I felt like talking to you a while. Hope your weekend has been a good one and hope the coming week will be a great one. The boss will be paying for all of us along with our at home family to travel to Wilmington, NC Friday, getting off work around lunch time and staying at a nice hotel friday and saturday night and a couple of meals with all attending. Should be an interesting weekend and I promise to take pictures.
