7 Months on the Road Checking Off the Bucket List travel blog


We took the train to an open air mall called Fashion Valley to look for wedding shoes. My feet measure 7 EE. They are almost square on the verge of orthopedic. Shoe shopping has brought a variety of comments over the years. Is Cinderella your sister? Maybe you should wear the boxes. We don't stock webbing. Have you thought about clogs. When I do find a good fit they are always an odd color like rusty orange, sea foam green, or purple.

I have black dress shoes that give me blisters. Would purple look that bad?

My husband found and bought a pair of Bose ear phones for his IPOD. I listen to the TV with the volume on 12 he listens at about 29. Mom says she has to read lips when I have it on. He claims they make the music so clear the individual instruments stand out. I can hear the music from his IPOD when he's wearing them too. What can I say, our marriage has volume.

Today's station story. We were waiting for the train when 3 retired couples get out of a truck that has been parked so close to ours they have to fold the mirrors in. They proceed to buy 6 tickets from the machine with various forms of payment while arguing about where they are going. One of the men mentions that it would be cheaper to buy a senior pass than to pay for an individual ticket every day. One of the women screams she does not qualify for a senior card and she does not want to spend her time here in the Metro Transit prison for age fraud. This makes them laugh and someone says there is not a metal cage at every station for metro violations. She states that traveling with him is like having a vile comedian along. The train comes and we board while they stay on the platform arguing.
