iPhone-o-Gram! One Shamu, Two Shamu!

After a terrific lunch on the patio at The Loop Grill in Kernersville, I headed for some much needed stuff at Target.

Okay--and some much un-needed stuff too, but certain clothing racks were as much as 70% off on clearance!

And when this girl can find casual pants that are long enough for tall people, and in terrific colors, and they fit well---I buy them. One of each color available!!

On my way out to the car I found myself trying to get into the wrong Shamu!!

This has never happened to me before---I'm glad no one was watching! Lol!

I'm planning on turning on QuiltCam this evening but I have stuff to finish up first so not sure when that will fit in. It's too hard to do it on schedule. It is what it is---Que Sera, Sera!

Uh, Bonnie, I don't know one vehicle from the rest unless one is white and one is red-even your special license plate didn't help?

Years ago, I took my elderly mother to a fabric shop with me. She tired of waiting on me and I was heading for the check out line. I told her I had left the car unlocked and she could go ahead out and I would be there shortly. But the wait in line took longer than it should have. Finally, I went to the car and found no mother there. I walked back into the store and checked the bathroom and all the aisles. No mother. I went to the shoe store next door and no mother. There was no where else for her to go. So back into the fabric store and another search. No mother. Back outside and then I spied someone sitting in a car of a similar color to ours. There she was. She was just about to get out of the car as she had realized that the packages on the floor were not ours. I am glad the owner had not come out and found a stranger in their car. And happy that I finally found my mother.

Thank you for being honest and fun. I would have said who stole my car? Then, oh there it is, moved once again by the parking lot gremlin! Notice once again, ha as if this will be the only time this could ever happen...I came home last night at 5:30pm and turned on my computer and your blog to see if you would be on your new way of communicating...oh happy I was...I sat and watched you laugh and sew and enjoy yourself with Doris, so glad you picked Doris I loved her movies (love), I was glad when you made your note, had me laughing at "intermission" so I made my salad for dinner. Then watched you sew some more and enjoy yourself so much. Then up you were ironing and loved your idea. I used to do just that but someone said (just once) cut them all first then iron. Thank you for reminding me I can go back doing how I chain pieced/ironed and know my/our way works just fine - thankyouverymuchindeed! I had a great evening - thank you and I hope I can "time it" for another fun time soon.

ps no idea how this works - visible? where?, so don't worry about a reply - just keep sewing, travelling and having fun, mostly though take care of yourself.

i did the wrong car thing once......in a pouring down rain! and my brother is looking at me like i've lost my mind...no just confused! those silver/gary jimmys and tahoes look the same in the rain.

Valerie said...

Oh, Karen, you must have both laughed about that for a long time. Glad it all worked out!

bunbear said...

okay, doris! haha. i'm going to try and catch you on quilt cam tonight. my featherweight was in the shop, but my son is supposed to pick her up this afternoon. so, if that happens, i'm going to try to be sewing with you on mine! kinda like the idea of having a sewing buddy, even if it's just over the computer... thanks for all you do, and especially your happy attitude all the time!

I recently stopped at a rest stop on my way to the airport and came out of the restrooms to return to my white van to find someone asleep in my seat with the window open! How did that happen? Oh, my white van was two spaces over and securely locked as I'd left it! Too funny and so embarrassing! Glad I'm not the only one that has done this. Too much sewing on my mind is my excuse and I'm sticking to it! Hope to see the cam one night but always seem to be too early or too late. I'll keep trying.

My girlfriend and I went out to lunch last winter and when we came out to get in the car. I got in the passenger side and she got in the drivers side. What was funny, I looked right and she was in her car and she was looking left at me and I was in another car. She was LHAO. I was mortified and quickly got out of the car and joined my friend in the identical car, color, make and year! She still laughs everytime we see each other.

I enjoyed the quilt cam last evening will try it again this evening. I came out of Target one day to find my car missing. Long story made short...the garage towed my car by mistake. The other Escape's valet key fit my car. It was hours later when they started to work on it that they discovered the ignition key did not work. Better yet, they were shocked that I had reported it missing to the police.

I went to the grocery store and when I came out headed towards my car noticing a look alike car in the next row. A lady was headed to that car and I was headed to my car - guess what - we realized we were heading to each others car! Switched mid aisle and headed to our own - we laughed at how dumb that must have looked to others. Sure enjoyed "our" time together last night.

Too cute, Bonnie! How funny that they were right next to each other :) Did Target have pants for short people, too? I think I might need to go shopping!

Marla said...

Oh this is a story for generations to come!!

Took my hubby to doctor appointment. I went out to the car (I always drive) to wait for him. I am rather meticulous about the inside of my car. I got in, sat down and saw all this trash in the floor. Could not figure out where it had come from and how I had not seen it earlier. Realized that I just kept finding more stuff that I could not explain and finally realized that it was NOT my car! My husband was inside the office builking laughing the whole time.

Phyllis said...

Bonnie, I also shop at the K'ville Target...what kind of pants do you find that fit us tall girls?

Shelley said...

I did the same thing and also at TARGET! I have a red van and I came out, not paying attention, opened the back to put my bags in and there a girl sleeping on the floor in the back of the van! She jumped. I screamed. Then we both laughed about it. OMgosh, it was funny. My mum and I still laugh about it.

Kevin did that one time... and actually got into the driver's seat before he realized he was in the wrong car LOL

I live in the Northeast where we always lock our cars, so I haven't had the experience of getting in the wrong car. However, I do work at a school and when I had a particular model of green van of which there were approximately 50 million made, I occasionally stook in the parking lot htting my remote and wondering why "my" car wouldn't open. During the last two years, I drove a black Honda Civic with stickers for two coleges plastered across the rear window. Another teacher drove a black Honda Civic and she often told me that her key didn't work in my car. The ironic thing was that one of the college stickers was for her alma mater. I, the tuition-paying mom, proudly displayed the sticker, but she had no such adornment on her car.

Oh Bonnie! THAT is funny. years ago we owned a plum colored windstar. Unique color in our small town, with one walmart. One time I came out with the loaded cart and went to my purple van. I opened the back door and started putting groceries in. My son opened the side door and jumped in only to say...Mom.... ummmm WHO put a car seat in our van???!! I then looked up and started to laugh. It was NOT our van! A few weeks go by and I was in the same parking lot and noticed the OTHER plum colored van and seen the lady coming out to hers. I waved hi and told her about our funny epidsode. She busted out laughing, and blushed to say, well, ummmm we were in your van a couple times also before noticing it was not ours. Sorry.
Boy, we had a good laugh and I still don't know who she was. I then paid more attention to my license plate, 905 CAB. called it my 9 to 5 taxi cab. :)And that was a random plate. :)

Thank you Bonnie for all that you do for others.

too funny! my story? it was christmas eve, i had just received a check from my mol in the card, and ran out to get something for the boys to open on christmas. off to toys r us i flew, got a great parking spot right in front of the store. less than 15 mins later, i was out bearing two huge radio controlled jeeps, in camo, i was soo excited, i knew the boys would love them! so i opened the door to the back seat, threw them in, jumped into the driver seat, and turned the key...it wouldnt start!...then i noticed the old man sitting in the passenger seat, looking like he was gonna die of shock!...and there was my identical green camry, parked nose to nose with that one! boy, did i get out of there fast!

Couple of weeks ago, I walked up to my car and there was a huge dent in the rear driver side. I touched it and was very disappointed; not even a note on the windshield. Decided to put my stuff inside and see if there was a camera on the parking lot. Couldn't get in. Not my car. I was the identical car, on the other side. Be well. Lane
