Real Brown Sheep, Family and Apes
After the tour was over, she re-read our sign in name and my business card and pronounced our last name correctly! ZING! We found out that her aunt was a Payzant from Schuyler and obviously that made us all relatives of sorts. Now that NEVER happens, does it? She excused herself for awhile to let us shop. OK, to let me shop and Bill took care of some business things on the phone. Felt like a kid in a candy shop.
After Brown Sheep, we stopped downtown to see if someone could fix Bill's broken watchband. Dropped that off and went to an antique shop. Yes, just one. That was enough for us. We decided that we've been out of it long enough and the prices were obnoxiously high, that we'd had enough. So antique shops got marked off our agenda for the rest of the trip.
When his watch was fixed, we ran downtown again to pick it up and decided to actually go to a theater to see a movie. Something we never EVER do at home. Walked the mall the theaters were in looking for something fun to take back to the grandkids. There was nothing that shouted 'panhandle' to us, or cowboy/Western type stuff. But the movie? It was one of the best ever - the new Planet of the Apes. We both laughed, jumped in our seats, and of course I cried at some of it. We don't get out much. :)
Thank you for reading - enjoy this very day!
