On one arm was her 6 month old baby. The other arm held Easter packages, purse and car keys. Also with her was an argumentative 8 year old not getting into the back seat of the car. After a bit the child gets in the car under protest. She is ready to close the car door when she notices a woman cowering in the front seat. Yep another case of wrong car in store parking lot. Realizing her mistake she apoligizes to horrified stricken lady, then takes herself and her children and finds the correct vehicle. Do you identify with the driver or shopping mom?

Happy Easter, Spring, or whatever Holiday you are celebrating. I went to my ATM to get some extra holiday money. I was happy and in the holiday mood. My money was ejected from the machine and as I counted it and was checking my receipt, I ambled over to my car. Still reading the receipt I did not look up as I tried to open my car door. For some reason it did not open and I looked in my car and was shocked and horrified that there was someone sitting in my drivers seat. A split second later I realized something else. It was not my car. The person looked very afraid and I quickly shouted out I was sorry, wished him a happy Holiday and found my car, which was in back of me. Realizing I had a little yellow VW Beetle and he was in a big white chevy I yelled back to him, "Wow I wasn't even close." He kind of slumped down in his car and he looked like he was trying to hide. Did you ever have this happen to you during the Holiday?

The wind is at it again. It seems the wind is all over these days. It is making Tornado's in North Carolina, strong winds in Pennsylvania and a bunch of other states. To save parking spaces in the City of Scranton Pa. people put out garbage cans and cheap lawn chairs on the street; in front of their houses. I was weaving all over the road trying to avoid them today. I had to stop a few times and let them pass in front of my VW Bug as the wind blew them across the street. Plus it is The Bay of Pigs Anniversary and well that is another story. Are you taking precautions to be safe from the wind today?

I came to work and was happy to report to the person I was to relieve. I was also happy to tell her that it was going to be 80 degrees tomorrow. She looked at me and hopefully asked, "Do you think it is true?" It was then I realized how hard the Winter was on everyone. I reassured her and she looked happily relieved. How was your Winter?
