We saw it!

  • Mood: excited and amazed!
  • Weather: bright and sunny, and cool too
  • Gas Prices for My Car: last I saw, the lowest gas station had it for $2.61 per gallon
  • Michael's Happenings: he's got a wienie-whistle... like the guy who wanted one in the movie "The Santa Clause" (yes, we saw that one)

Today Michael and I went to a local grocery store to pick up a couple of prescriptions.  As we neared the store, I noticed what looked like a reddish and goldenrod colored bus, in a strange shape.  Could it be?  I'd heard about it since I was a kid myself...  Yes!  It was the Oscar Mayer WienerMobile!!!  Michael started singing the little ditty about "my bologna has a first name, it's O-S-C-A-R..."  We got out of the car and walked up to see what was going on.  Like another family that happened to be walking up at the same time, they asked, "Are you selling hot dogs?"  No, they weren't, but they gave each of us a glow-in-the-dark "wienie-whistle," a post card, stickers and coupons.  Michael got to step up and see inside the vehicle.  It was the size of a bus!  Wow!  I was amazed...

This week, it is Respiratory Therapy Week too, or something like that.  At David's college, there was free cake and other foods a couple of days ago.  Today, they were having a raffle, a scavenger hunt, cookies, goodies, a contest, etc.  We gave a small donation and let Michael take a cupcake, a cookie and 2 chocolates.  We picked up the questionaire for the contest, but haven't filled it out just yet.

I've been working nearly every day at work.  Our studio went digital about a month and a half ago, and I can say I'm used to the new system fully.  I need to leave for work in an hour.

That is so cool! I've seen the weenie moblie on TV. That's cute that Michael sang the song.

Did Michael see the special song just for him on youtube? Call me if your email's down, and I'll tell you about it.
