Here it is 4 am and the lights just went out from the ice storm that is going, at least I think that’s the reason. Most normal people would go to bed instead of sitting in the dark but that’s me.
Good thing I threw my bedtime snack in the toaster oven when I did at least now I am having a candle lit bedtime snack. Nothin' like chicken wings, peas and rice by candle light.
This reminds me of years ago when people would sit around and talk or read books by candle only difference now is I'm using a laptop.
So anyways.... less than 5 days until February 26. Are you prepared?
Saturday at 3 am I drove with Gary's niece to the train station to bring Gary who was heading back to Indiana. He is a little bit more reserve, quieter and at times likes to be left alone and I was in one of my off the wall talkative moods. Nice combo, can you spell mischief?
We were standing by the door waiting for the train when a man walked by. Of course I struck up a conversation with him, WOW was this guy a chatterbox. Don't get me wrong, he was polite and a nice person but he sure knew how to talk. In the short time standing there I found out about his daughter, his ex, the time he had to go to court for mortgage fraud for working with someone who was shady and 20 other different things.
I introduced him and he turned around and started up with Gary. Gary slowly backed away found a seat and left me there with the Mr. Filibuster. I didn't care as it was an opportune time to tell this guy Can you do me a favor and look out for my friend, what ever you do please keep checking on Gary and talk to him all you can, he doesn't like trains or being alone, he is a little nervous.
Ain't I a rat?
I never know who I will run into. Like at the train station Saturday. Is it, naw, wait it is..... SENATOR GRENDEL!! What are you doing here? What a surprise. We talked politics, well come on you had to know that, his concerns for America and other things which I can't divulge. But what I can tell you, if I heard correctly, is the reason why the Grendel's were at the train station was because they were heading to Chicago to visit his aunt for her 98th birthday. And if that's not amazing enough, his is aunt just retired from being a legal secretary, What a blessed person.
Lets see what else has been happening, OH I almost forgot to tell you but you know what? I won't tell you, I will leave you in the dark like I am.
