Wonderful! Yay! Love it when things fall into place easily and work out so well.Thank you, Kate!
I had a bit of an odd day. My bench person, Tony, opened his own jewelry studio FAR from me two years ago, so today I finally visited him, taking Mildred to see if he would remodel her setting. Yes! I will post the « tweaked setting » when I receive it.
But afterward about a half mile from him, on the freeway, [in the pouring rain, with Issy in the car and no raincoat] my vehicle started making weird noises. Thank goodness I used my intuition intead of ploughing ahead. Pulled over to the side, couldn’t find anything. Went another 100 feet and pulled over again. This time I saw the problem...a bunch of construction spikes wrapped in tape, imbedded in the front tire The noise was the tape hitting the tirewell.
I put on my emergency blinkers and drove at 30 mph to the first exit and found a safe place to park. The tire did not go flat until I reached safety. Less than five minutes after I called AAA, a guy named Angel showed up and put on the spare.
Then I had to stop at Walmart to pick up an Rx and the parking lot was jammed. I found a space right next to the pharmacy and as I was pulling in, the parked car in front of me pulled out so I moved forward, thinking I would not have to back out later in the pouring rain. And I thought...wow. I thought I was having a bad day, but look at this! Lol
First I met an Angel, now in the pouring rain I got a great parking spot!
While I was waiting for my Rx, I started talking to a really nice young woman who told me about her discount card for drugs and said I should get the card.
I was like, yeh OK, but she Insisted I look it up in the app store.
I did, and got the card. When I showed it to the pharmacist ... voila! My normally $120 a month Rx was $39.
I can’t even understand WHY or HOW a card like that would be available in two seconds to just anyone.
What a funny day.
Anyway...if you got this far...look up HIPPO. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/hippo-launches-drug-discounting-platform-300789864.html
