The Horror of it All!Woman in the Middle | January 24, 2013
I had to go to the DMV today to renew my driver’s licence. With no forewarning, no wardrobe planning, no makeup application, and, worst of all, with nothing done to my hair other than brushing it, I had to have a new photo taken! OMG! I can only imagine how that is going to look. I just bet I am going to be stuck with that stunner of a photo for another 15 years! Can’t wait to see it!
One of the reasons my hair was a bit crazed today is because I went on a little adventure early this morning. An elderly lady who was a descendent of a pioneer family in my neck of the woods has been moved out of her home. Her family ignored her wishes and put everything up for sale. A friend and I went on a mission, leaving at 5 this morning, to go to the estate sale in the Los Angeles area and see if we could rescue anything of historic importance. It was a nightmare of extraordinary proportions! It was raining cats and dogs, the woman running the sale had a Hitler complex, and there were about a 100 people there all desperate to get into this house. On top of that all of the books, notebooks, etc had been put in the back yard and covered with plastic. We were not allowed to look at those due to the rain. My friend and I just stood and looked out at all the of books and papers likely getting ruined in the rain and mourned.
In the end we staggered away with a few things, trying to keep the few precious photos we rescued from getting wet, and out to breakfast to recover. My friend and I agreed: Never again! Now you know why I didn’t look so swift at the DMV.
