    I laughed so hard at this. That describes me completely except for the driving part. I don't drive! But I still manage all that hassle at the ATM. :-)

  4. Hee...hee...hee - that was funny! This is why "Mrs. Bulldog" is NOT allowed to use the ATM while driving my '77 Chevy Impala. Big car, small ATM portal - you do the math!

    Glad to see that you're on the road to recovery. Let me know what the doc says!

  5. OH my!
    that made me laugh, thanks!
    hope you're feeling better today!

    We have a driveup in the neighborhood and there is always a line so I try to be super-efficient when I go to it.

  7. Now let me ask... if I posted that... do you think I'd get yelled at?


Thanks for visiting!
