Costco & Drs

Gerry and I have an opthalmologist here in Tucson who has worked on our eyes a couple of times and we have the utmost faith in his work.  Today was the day Gerry went in for her yearly checkup and a short visit turned into an afternoon deal.  Dr. Snyder saw something in her eye that he hadn't seen before and went back for a 2nd look.  He then told her to go to another specialist in the area for a further check.  This Dr said it looked like something hereditary and no concern, but to have it checked again next year.

After the Drs we thought we would check out the new Costco here in Tucson.  Bad move.  The place was mobbed worse than Christmas and there were people all over the place.  It seems that some people must have come here earlier and then gone back home to tell their neighbors about all the food samples being given away.  There were families there with 6-8 children, grandparents and who else I don't know.  They mobbed the food vendors for free samples and didn't believe in getting in line and taking their turn.  At least some vendors told them to get to the back of the line and most did that and others acted like they didn't understand.

It is a nice store and very clean as you would imagine.  We filled the gas tank on the car at $3.399/gallon and headed out of there.  The on ramp at I-10 was closed and we had to take a detour but finally made it home safely. 

A few more snowbirds left today and the place is almost deserted.  We are scheduled out of here on Tuesday and may make it if my brother gets here Monday.  He is on the way to San Diego with a load and will stop by and say hello on his way.

Never a dull moment out here.

  1. I can not believe you went to Costco on "opening day". Why was the on ramp closed?
