Hello All Seasoners,
Manny, many thanks for your lovely, beautiful, and interesting posts last week!
Such a harsh beginning of the year this winter, makes me thankful that life has returned for milder weather, and went on Friday two plus hours further than city limits of Austin.
As you might remember and can imagine that having lived in the forest, there was no shopping comparable to the Los Angeles or San Francisco area. In those years I must have lost the estimation one builds up inside
what things cost.
There was this cute tiny store of clothes and hats that shared their space, of a coffee place, where we just had ordered coffee. When browsing, the prices of the clothes seemed reasonable.
Then I saw this cowboy looking hat in blue and yellow and some decorations on the rim in the store window..
Because we were in Texas, I figured I would not fall out of tone with this hat. On a second look, it looked like leather, but looked like fake leather.
No price tag, so I asked the store keeper. They had three of the same in that store. None had a price tag. That should have given me a clue!
So she called the store owner. When I came back to her, she said with a plain face,”It is two eighty nine.” I repeated what she said. “Two eighty nine???”
Then jokingly I ventured, “You don’t mean two hundred and eighty nine, do you??”
She looked at me through her glasses and seriously nodded, “Yes, two hundred and eighty nine.”
I dumbfound-edly answered, “Oh, thank you.”
Man, did I lose my estimation ability! It probably was real leather, lol. But why did they make it look like fake leather??
My idea wanting to fit in with Texas culture had suddenly disappeared in a flash, haha.

The title hints at “show me what you bought!”
We’re going on a shopping trip.
Have not made up my mind, what
to buy. (An image of Hubby for his photo class).
I looked in this window. Do I like something here?
Or do I like some decorative things for the living
room or kitchen? (Don’t I blend nicely in
with the sunflowers?)
KInda like that dragonfly …
But where do I hang it?
What about the butterflies or umbrellas then?
Have to admit, I like these bright birds
Maybe I am the more practical type,
who is drawn to something that has
a function like a rustic clay vase or pot …
Do you see, I’m not the only one with a camera,
hunting for images?
Or never enough to wear (doesn’t every
female say that?),
like a poncho or a hat? (This was not the
same location as of my story above!)
Who knows, I really don’t need anything,
but like to hear some music instead on this trip!
Save money that way too, lol.
The years living on the countryside
really has changed me. Before, living in the suburbs
I never, ever, came home without buying something!
Do you ever come back home without buying something?
