It delights me to no end when I tell the kids they can play with a big cardboard box I’m about to throw out and they spend hours playing in it. Usually, they use markers to turn it into a spaceship.
WifeGeeding’s parents wanted to meet us for lunch at the restaurant in Neiman Marcus at Northpark Center, so we obliged, though I knew I was about to feel a bit out of my comfort zone. When I first saw them, I teased them that they looked like the Ewings, especially since WifeGeeding’s father was wearing a stetson and a sportcoat that had a twist of Western influence in it, though he was sporting it quite well. The opportunity to tease them about being the Ewings arose once more when the conversation of oil prices and their oil rigs and wells popped up.
It’s always interesting to look through the clearance racks at Neiman’s and check out the prices. Even with a 25% discount, this one woman’s vest had a price tag of over $3,700.
The restaurant at Neiman’s, as part of a complimentary appetizer, includes a small cup of chicken broth to drink. I had no idea that was a thing.
Since Northpark has a Tesla gallery I decided to check out the car and sit in the driver’s seat. There’s a lot to like about it, but I think it has some bad blind spots in the rear.
Random observation: Mothers tend to carry babies and toddlers using their left arm and shoulder and fathers tend to use their right arm and shoulder.
WifeGeeding’s father has this gift of approaching people he doesn’t know, engaging them in conversation, and making them laugh and feel as if they have known him for decades. I wish I could describe it better, but there’s such a charm to it mixed with kindness and gentleness and he’s never intrusive about it.
As if being arraigned wasn’t bad enough, Bill Cosby tripped on the curb on his way to the courthouse.
Trump had plethora of reporters and camera operators on his private jet yesterday and said, “Try not to scratch the woodwork if possible.” I live in a very different world than Mr. Trump. I live in a very different world than all the candidates.
An interesting quote from a survivor of one of the recent North Texas tornadoes – “We actually went outside and started commanding the winds because God had given us authority over the winds – the airways. And we just began to command this storm not to hit our area. We – we spoke to the storm and said, go to unpopulated places. It did exactly what we said to do because God gave us the authority to do that.”
