Watching all the tragedy that has been going on this weekend with Ike and the train crash in California has all seemed like a nightmare. I cannot imagine being in either position. I am so grateful that my family is safe from harm, but my heart goes out to those that have suffered and still are suffering.
As predicted, the price of gasoline has risen. It rose to over 60 cents a gallon in two day. Some gas stations here have run out gasoline. Soon we are going to have to make a few choices, we buy food and gasoline, or we pay our regular bills.
It was teacher’s workshop Friday and Brain has no school. However, he had to go to the dentist for a cleaning. He wasn’t too happy about that. I was really happy when the dentist said he had no cavities. Yesterday, he and his Cub Scout troop went on a field trip to St. Mary’s. They toured Orange Hall and saw a video about historic St. Mary’s. Brian was the only one to bring water. It was so hot that after a while the troop got sweaty and thirsty. Brian asked Tom for his water and Tom told him that it wasn’t fair that he had water and the rest of the troop didn’t. So, Tom bought 12 bottle of water for the others. The store gave him $2.00 off since it was for the cub scouts. I know it doesn’t sound like a lot of money, but it cost a dollar for each, tiny bottle of water. Why didn’t the others bring water? They know how hot it is here and especially when you are out in this heat for any length of time, it takes a toll on one. Brian looked like he was run through a wringer when he got home.
It is Sunday night and I have this despisement for Sunday nights. I have ever since I was a kid.
