What I Did On My Summer Vacation Part 1I g

 it was a fun day
I got a pedicure
which is the ultimate in decadence for me
only the second one I've had in my life
and I love them
just what I need
another vice
I gave the nail tech the book I was reading
I finished it in the chair
Billy Straight by Johnathon Kellerman
(I highly recommend it)
She was thrilled
I love giving books to people

Caitlin and I went to the Exploreum
weird exhibit
real dead people
preserved by this method
that turns tissue into plastic
very interesting
very educational
but they all looked like steak
and I couldn't get past
the fact that they once loved and laughed
and were mourned by someone
 the 3 D Imax movie was great
inside the heart
with giant corpuscles everywhere
and Caitlin drove downtown
She's so good
I am going to quit driving
Then my friend Susan and I went to a ball game
we lost terribly
but after looking at a player's name
I got to yell
"Run Forrest, "Run!"

The only thing above a pedicure is a massage. Nothing wrong with pampering once in a while. Sounds like a nice day. Paula

I've only had two pedicures too!  I love them but generally can't afford them!

You had a great day, I love pedicures too.  I watched a program on those exhibits and where the bodies come from...it is scary. I think they have surpassed the Egyptian mummies...love, Sandi

For me, the best part of vacation is that I'm not at work.  Anything else is gravy.

    You didn't happen to see the Boston Legal where the woman was arrested for stealing her father's corpse from one of those exhibits? Funny, funny episode. One of these days I will give in and treat myself to a pedicure. And I just might take your suggestion and let Becky take over the driving. She took her test last Saturday. She flunked. Tester said she has a lead foot. Oh well. Maybe next weekend. Take care.
