Share Your World: June 27, 2020

Have you ever ‘dined and dashed” (i.e. eaten the meal and then run out the restaurant door without paying)?
No.

Have you ever been in a car accident and either left the scene of the accident (providing it was a fender bender and not serious) or denied culpability for causing it when you did, (if it were minor or serious)?
No.

Have you ever found a wallet or purse or some money (over $20) in the street and just taken it, thinking ‘finders keepers, losers weepers? Or would you be ‘good’ and hand it in?
No, but I was always taught that if you knew who the owner was and kept it, that was stealing, if you didn’t know who the owner was you could keep it. As a young adult I heard you could find a wallet in the street and if the ID was in it you could drop it in the mail box and they would return it. I don’t know if that’s true now or if it ever was.

What brought gratitude, a smile or laughter to your life this week?
It was my birthday week and although we didn’t go big like I had planned we were able to go out. One of my besties dropped off a beautiful arrangement of flowers, she is so talented…and generous! I got my first manicure since March. After my nail appointment I went to a winery with a two more of my besties crew. There were very few people there and we sat outside and sipped our wine. Afterwards we found a restaurant that had safe seating, and had dinner. A friend at work brought in cupcakes, not that I need them. I ate a couple and put the rest in the freezer. Later in the week I met another friend at one of our favorite gardens that reopened recently and had a very cool display of bug sculptures made from wood. And of course there were cards, and phone calls, text messages, and wishes on social media. Originally I would have like to gather all these friends together at one time and had a nice little party but with everything going on, I didn’t think it was a good idea. Still, they were not about to let this milestone birthday go uncelebrated. I honestly do not know how I got to be so lucky, but I really hit the jack pot in the friends department.

  1. Happy Belated Birthday and thanks for Sharing Your World!! It sounds like you had a great day, even if the larger celebration wasn’t possible. You’re a great friend too, to your friends, because you are thoughtful and kind not insisting on a big gathering with all that’s happening. The photos? Wonderful! Thanks for sharing those! 🙂

  2. I’m glad you had a lovely birthday, with everything going on at the moment! We missed a family birthday in April, but in a couple of weeks things are going to start opening up again here.
