Time Flies...

I've decided that time flies whether you're having fun or not. It's not that I'm not having fun. I guess if the old saying is true I must be having a blast because, GEE WHIZZ, where have the last four days gone? I posted here last Thursday, I have no idea what I did Friday, (can't remember), Saturday I worked on my writing assignment, then yesterday...

Setting: Sunday--Rick is working at his desk completely zoned out to anything else around him. I'm reading and just kind of wasting time. My phone rings and it is Kaleena, my oldest child. I step outside so my conversation doesn't bother Rick as he is on the phone with insureds.
Lavonda: yak-it-ty yak-it-ty yak (Time passes, morning turns into afternoon, so conversation ends and I go back inside.)
Rick: Get ready and we will run to Wal-Mart.
Lavonda: Slaps on some make-up, puts on shoes, grabs purse.

We get in the truck and head out in search of a Wal-Mart. In no time at all we are a few miles down the road and pass through a few little towns. I start to see road signs that indicate we are on our way to an outlet mall.
Lavonda: (Thinking to myself) SWEET!
We eat lunch, we shop, then its back in the truck to hunt, once again, for the nearest Wal-Mart.
A little time and a few miles pass then road signs indicate we are headed for Long Island Sound.
Lavonda: You're taking me to THE SOUND? And I didn't bring my camera!
Rick: Why not?
Lavonda: You said we were going to Wal-Mart! I don't usually take my camera when I just go to Wal-Mart!
Rick: Well you should.
Lavonda: (Thinking to myself) Mental note--always take your camera every time you leave the camper, even if you are just going to Wal-Mart.
Rick had his rinky-dink camera in the truck so we used it to snap a few pictures. They are nothing to rave about, but just in case we don't get to go back to the sound while we are in ya go.
I don't know who these people are but they wouldn't get out of the picture.

Rick was a little chilly. The sea breeze was nice and cool.

I can't go to a beach and not get my feet wet. And it wasn't until AFTER we played with the hermit crabs we found in the shallow that we saw the sign that said, "Do Not Disturb the Wildlife." Oops!

In case you are wondering, yes we did finally find a Wal-Mart. We bought groceries and came back to the camper. It was a fun afternoon. I guess that's why time flew.
