Tell Me Something Good – July 10, 2017

This may not seem like much to the general public…..but I’m going to the grocery!  Yea!  Since I’m practically out of detergent, fruit and veggies, it is needed.  I have to add that having a washer and dryer inside my own apartment is a true convenience.  I’ve been the Sudsy Duds route when you have to share those items with the rest of the town, who may or may not have the same aesthetics I do.  And the money…..having the right amount of coins….always made a trip to the bank prewash-day a necessity.  Waiting for the machines to finish in the hot steamy atmosphere always a treat, not bad in the winter.  

There was a grocery store a few hundred feet away, so it was convenient to shop during the thirty or twenty minutes you had between changing machines.  I was still walking then so it was good.  The most fun was being preoccupied during these “outings” if I was babysitting.  Fascination with the machines, how they worked, and especially loading coins in the slots, was a treat for kids. You also arrived home with your clothes etc, folded neatly, ready to put away.  No lazy leaving them in the dryer like I might, just might, admit to happening now.

I guess all in all, the whole experience could be put in the positive column.  It’s good to think of the little things in life to give you a positive boost.
