Oh, the childhood joys of ladybugs and fireflys in the Oklahoma weather. Brings back some wonderful memories with my sister.

Too funny--but sad that we have lost the whole idea of customer service today. I have to share my Walgreen's story dealing with my last name--I laugh even when I think about it today and it happened several years ago. I stopped at the drive-thru at the Walgreen's that I've gone to for probably 30 years. My prescription had been dropped off earlier and I was feeling really poorly when I went back to pick it up. The girl asked me over the drive-thru speaker for my last name. I pronounced it for her very slowly "KINCH-A-LOW, SUE KINCH-A=LOW". Now there are not a lot of Kincheloe's around and that usually does the trick. She looked in the bins and came back and asked again. I repeated the same thing and then proceeded to spell it for her. "K-I-N" and she interrupted me with "A-I-N". I said, "No, it's K-I-N" and she interrupted me again with "A-I-N". My throat was killing me and I, too, was becoming very frustrated. Being the teacher, I then told her, "It's not A, it's K as in" at this point I went totally blank for any word in my vocabulary that even began with a K let alone made the K sound. I eventually told her "K as in knife". Of course, as soon as I said that I felt like a total idiot. She turned around and got my prescription, I paid, and left laughing all the way home. After all, laughter is the best medicine, you know.
Love the new look of your blog!
