Keepin' It Weird ~SIMC


I worked last night and slept until 4pm today.  It is now 8:15 and let me tell you about what I have packed into the last 4 hours.

~ Byron and I went to dinner with my parents.  On the way there, on a busy street near UF and the big hospital, Shands, we saw several police cars on the side of the road near an apartment complex.  No big deal, they were just rounding up a HUGE, 8-10 foot alligator that was sitting on the sidewalk.  Go Gators!

~ We went to Cracker Barrel and I filled my belly with country fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, hash brown casserole and green beans.  Ok, about 1/3 of a serving of all of it, and the rest is in my refrigerator.  PLUS, a few bites of my Mama's dessert: blackberry cobbler and ice cream. OH MAHHH GAWWD.

~ Then we went to The Walmart.  We all know that's an adventure any time, but today really topped any prior visit.  All we bought was light bulbs and Rain-X, people!  This was like a 15 minute trip.  And this is what transpired.....

~First we went to the hunting section and saw this:



It was a Redneck Convention.  They were waiting for the Ammo shipment to come in.  I swear I'm not even kidding.  (In their defense, ammo is in very short supply around here. Because obviously, the zombies are coming. Duh.)

~ Then as we're getting into the truck, there was an old lady standing by her car across from us with what appeared to be her grandson.  He was kind of douchey, in a pants-on-the-ground kind of way.
The old lady started SOBBING, and we realized her hand was SHUT IN HER DOOR.  Before we could react, Douchey Grandson unlocked the door and got her hand out, and then said calmly WITH A SMILE ON HIS FACE: "I think we need to go to the hospital, I can see your bone."

YA THINK?!

~ THEN - because it wasn't over yet - we were leaving and saw this guy standing at the intersection:



Skin-tight shorts and pink shoes.  He danced and waved and blew kisses.  Free entertainment!  Gotta love it.

~ And I haven't even mentioned hubby ALMOST getting a nother seatbelt ticket.
Click it or Ticket, friends, they ain't joking.

Never a dull moment!

I LOVE that you got the photo of the guys waiting for their ammo. One, because it's just funny, and two, because the last time I was visiting my family in Kentucky, my brothers were complaining about the lack of available ammo. This photo could very have easily been my brothers.
The grandson/grandma incident would keep me from sleeping.

Peanut butter pie. A trip to Cracker Barrel is not complete without a piece of peanut butter pie!

Walmart... always an adventure! I went in the rain last week after yoga... soaking wet in my yoga pants and tank top... wandering aimlessly because I couldn't find toothpicks... I was a "people of Walmart"

Those alligators scare me to death! Sounds like a yummy dinner and dessert. I do know that bullets are very hard to come by these days. Hope that ladies hand is okay. You really had a packed 4 hours for sure!

Umm, I went to Cracker Barrel for Mother's Day and had chicken fried steak and blueberry cobbler! Just another day at The Walmart, huh?

Your Sunday was highly entertaining. I love it, though the Rednecks scare me.

Be well, and thanks for your recent visits and words of support.

Can you imagine being the cop who gets the call to round up an alligator? I think I'd try to find an excuse why they need to call the next officer...

That poor old lady! I hope she got taken care of at the hospital.

Alligators! Ack!!

WalMart always scares me. I try to get and get out.

Alligators and a Redneck Convention. You may as well have Swamp People as your neighbors. LOL

I've never been to a Cracker Barrel but I have witnessed such things at a WalMart. They have it all...cheap prices and entertainment :)
