Just for another post script to yesterday’s moving story, I learned today that there were three moving helpers involved.
The first group never showed up though Emily had talked with them the day before the move to make sure all would go smoothly. But both of us had a very strange impression of their not being very businesslike talking with them. The second group, which the coordinating company hired sent Emily a voice mail that she was too far away and they were not going to take the job. And the third group were very far away but came and helped wonderfully……Of course Em and Ingmar had hired a large truck from 8am on…….Help did arrive about 5pm….
And now for new business……..Andy and I had a very nice lunch together at Aladdins, a local middle eastern restaurant which is a bit more Lebanese in it’s menu. We both had the V9 soup (nine vegetables in it). I had feta cheese with mine. Andy did not. Then he had a rolled felafel sandwich and I had a Kibbe appetizer which comes with a cup of yoghurt and some Lebanese salad. Oh, it was delicious and comforting. Much more so than the conversation which was about the possible government shutdown. Because, of course, Andy would be affected by this, and they had already talked about it at work. They are working toward a deadline to get everything ready for a long in the works trip to Johnson Space Center in Houston where another part of their team is working. But if the government is shut down they are not allowed on NASA property. Not at all, and not any facility……..
I know some of my readers are worried about Obamacare. I am not. I think it is possibly the one really good thing Obama has accomplished since taking office, and I’ve heard a lot of downright lies in ads lately. I am not fond of my government at the moment. And if Senator Cruz said the things he has been reported as saying, I don’t know what Bible he has been reading that so missed the entire Christian message………See http://debrasotherthoughts.blogspot.com/ and click on the link in it.
I can only hope that they come to their senses and act like thinking functioning adults in time………(See, I can get carried away too.)
