Yesterday was one of those nice days that you find you look back on with fondness. Marvin had an appointment in Birmingham to get his pre op done for his next surgery on Nov 30th. He will have a cyst removed from his parotid gland. Hopefully it will just be day surgery. His surgeon told us we might be able to go home as I am a nurse and can keep a good watch on things.
The Highlands Hospital of UAB is such a nice hospital. Every one was very gracious and helpful. That is always comforting when you must have a procedure done. We were in and out in one hour so we headed north to Gardendale to enjoy lunch at Wintzell's Sea Food. I had a Shrimp Po Boy and Marvin enjoyed shrimp and grits. It was DELICIOUS.
Then we stopped in Falkville, Alabama to do some shopping at the Mennonite Grocery store. I picked up a supply of their excellent chocolates for my mother. I might have saved one or two for myself.
Errands in Hartselle and then home to Decatur. I was just thinking what a lovely day we had enjoyed as I opened the mailbox to check the mail. There was a package inside and I thought to myself, "I"m not expecting anything." Look what I received...
Tomorrow I am off for a girls day with my friend, Diane. We are going to Scottsboro, Al home of Unclaimed Baggage. This store is where all the contents of missing and unclaimed luggage from air travel finds a home. Sometimes you can get a real bargain. We are going to explore the downtown area which is a quintessential old Southern Town. Rumor is they even have a soda fountain!!
