We went to "Downtown Live" last night.
There was a blues guitarist( JImmy Vahn..think that is how you spell it. Stevie ray vahns son) playing at the free outdoor event that drew thousands of people because there was also a preview of the Antique and hot rod cars showing. And the clydsdales budwieser horses have been in town all week. We were lucky to see them loading back up into their trailers up close and personal.
Beautiful horses!!!!!
The cars were awesome!!!
The main car show is today at the blackum collisium.
I might go by myself if jeff doesn't want to come along.

He watered the ground last night and this morning so that he will be able to put the tombstones up in the yard. It has been so dry the dirt was like concrete. It is working so he is able to use a screw driver to pound the holes into the dirt. He has 20 and more tombstones, I have lost tract for the cemetery in front of the house. I bought 5 more this year to add tothe collection.
It is his favorite time of the year.
He only decorates for halloween, not christmas.

My friend susan is coming to dinner tonight as her hubby is out of town playing a trumpet gig. I invited her last night.
We are having lemon pepper sauteed Talapia and quinoa soup and steamed mixed veggies.
She has a 5 1/2 hour rehearsal for the Symphony being performed tomorrow at a beautiful Cathedral. She is trying to get us complimentary tickets to the show at 3 pm.
I asked her if she was going to the NAMI support group meeting sunday at 6...I think she will go too.
Her job search is not going well.

My best friend who is also looking for work had a job interview for a medical coding position. It only pays $11 an hour which would be the lowest paying job she has ever had but is desperate to start working. That is about $1200 a month after taxes and would not even cover the mortgage.
Her husband is finally showing some concern about the whole situation.

Personally, I continue to feel ADD. It is difficult to pay attention while driving. I almost got into a car accident the other day. Geesh, it would have been my fault too. Jeff had been drinking so I drove lastnight and backed into the curb while parallel parking. Thankfully, no harm was done to the tires.

Ironed and wore my new scrubs yesterday. They felt so comfortable...like pajamas. They wore well and hardly wrinkled thru out the day which is good...more professional looking even though there is not an ironed center crease.
I am happy with them!

After a lunch of chicken and sausage gumbo, I might actually go to the gym and walk on the tred mill for 2 hours to see if I can walk for 6.2 miles
( a 10 K), in preparation for the cajun cup that is happening next month. I have not signed up for it yet. After NOT jogging like I planned due to a thigh injury back on Memorial day, I am so discouraged to even try to think about doing it again this year. I walked/jogged it last year with a girl friend of mine.
I don't know if she has been training for it or not.
I have one month to train for it.

So my plan for the day:
lunch, iron scrubs, Car show, Tred mill, dinner at 6.
Sounds like a great day to me!
Thank you for reading and have a great weekend.

    Good luck to your friends!

    My aunt and her friends lived in surgical scrubs in the evening. They said they were the most comfortable things to wear. Much better than pjs.
