Some changes are really simple – like the changes I made on the blog. I have been offline for several days while I fiddled with some things. I finally got a check from Google Ads. I made $104. in three years!!! So the ads are gone. I would have taken them down sooner but I was determined to get that $100 by golly and they don’t pay until you reach that threshold. I also cleaned up my blog roll. I had blogs on there that haven’t posted in several years so it was time to go. Hope I didn’t delete anyone who is still active.
I messed with the template and colors and in the end decided I like what I have so I’ll just leave it for now. Might change it later.
Some changes are just strange! Since we live in rainy, cold Oregon, Russ and I decided we needed to get some exercise indoors…so we went to the mall. Now understand, we are NOT mall people and it has literally been years since we walked around Valley River Center, Eugene’s main shopping mall. WOW!! Talk about change. It was like entering a different world. The lights, the smells, the displays…all were fun to look at since we were just walking and not shopping. We found the perfect companion to Al’s Spencer. Al and Kelly, I think you guys got a real bargain on Spencer!!
We saw some very colorful wigs and hair extensions. Did you ever wonder what you would look like in green hair? Me neither!!
The mall is full of slot machines. Put your money in the slot and you get something EVERY time. Good thing there is room to walk it off.
And then there were the fashions. Man O man, am I ever out of it. Can you imagine paying $68.50 for something like this? When I was a teenager, we called these rags and wouldn’t be caught dead wearing them.
But of course, our parents probably despaired over our bell bottoms, mini-skirts, and tie dye! Remember these?
I’m not sure how anyone can walk in these but the salesgirl assured me they are the height of fashion.
I did find one thing at the mall that I especially liked. I tried to buy him but the store said he was priceless! I had to agree.
One thing that really caught our eye was the display of wind spinners. (music added)
But there was one thing that I just could not understand. This is something I have never seen before and I was amazed. The video is from a promo tape they were playing. There were no live customers. (scream added!)
I suppose that process is no more painful than waxing, but I wouldn’t want to do that either.
Well, we can’t say our trip to the mall was boring. We laughed a lot and had a good time just being old geezers. It’s amazing how places change when you are away from them for a while. But then I guess change is something that always happens, in all areas of life, ready or not.
