Last Saturday I had a "Girls' Day Out" with six women from Lamesa. It had been so long since I had done something as frivolous as going shopping, that I was in culture shock for at least an hour.
I met the ladies at Jackie's house, and we headed out to Post.
Two of the gals were in the back seat talking non-stop about all the stuff they had bought, and then one pipes up and says, "Who is the best hair dresser in Lamesa?" That's when I realized that I had come to a new world--the world of Lamesa. Lamesa has a culture all its own--one that I dearly love and miss so much. I had so much fun in Lamesa when I taught ten miles down the road. I just love their glitz! The ladies doll up more in Lamesa, Texas, than anywhere in the world. They get their nails done whether they need it or not.
These ladies know how to shop and they do it on a regular basis--purses, shoes, clothes. You name it they have it.
Here we are with friends from Post from left to right starting with the front row:
Maria Aguirre, Dorothy Evans, Rosie. Back row: Pam Vogler, Jackie Hahn, Jackie Calhoun, Janelise Bowman, Carol and Wayne McDonald. We met Carol and Wayne at the restaurant, and then went to see them perform in Bethlehem at Rag Town Theater.
After last Saturday, I realized that my life has dwindled into a very boring routine--go to school, stay after school, go home and do it all over again, day after day. I am resolved to go back to Post with the crew and take care of unfinished business; so that cat had better be ready to cooperate because here I come!
