Good Evening Everybody!
Like you know by now, I'm at market in Dallas, Texas buying merchandise for the stores. I think this gets harder the older I become. How many years have I been doing this...28 years in various jobs! It may be time to let someone else give it a shot! I always say I'm tuckered out by the end of the day, but GOOD LAWD, to get up from this comfy hotel chair takes a couple of heaves and then I'm up only to be rewarded with sore muscles and the feet! Oh the feet! No joking! LOL! I need to get back into shape when I get home! Just pitiful! HAHA!
I was reading my comments on past post and the question was raised about what market is. Market for my neck of the woods, is in Dallas, Texas at the World Trade Center. It's kinda like CHA, where retailers purchase merchandise to sell in there store, except think of Dallas Market as being about 100 times larger.
I wanted to share something with you all that was so weird! LOL! I know it's like in Jim's world everything is weird so no big deal! Last night in one of the showrooms, Patrick and Company and Cork Pops hosted an event with wonderfully delicious hors d'oeuvres...Yep I had a couple....maybe 6! I was hingry... and get this...a palm reader and a Tarot Card reader. I have no idea why I think this is so bizarre, but I do. LOL! So my sales rep talked me into sitting with the Tarot reader which I have never done in my life, probably because I was too scared to know if there was something bad headed my way! To the contrary...This is what she said...
I was asked to sit down and cut the deck of cards and I did...I sheepishly looked at the woman and probably began to sweat a little! LOL! She dealt the cards and began to read....She said I was going to have a wonderful year! Good grief and thank the gazin' balls! I began to ease up a little....She said I had recently gone through a stressful time that involved traveling. She said that was now over and things would begin to be much calmer. She saw that I would be...hmmmmm, how can I put this so when my mom reads this post she wont be embarrassed or y'all either...I would be, let's just say, I would be "lucky" in April...Amusing me thinks! LOL! A whole month! To be honest folks, I think this threw me! LOL! Ok, back to the read...Get this though...She said out of the blue...I will be teaching this year...teaching something I love to do!!!! OK...cool so far...She said let's go alittle farther... I was happy with what I had...Would she think I was crazy if I got up and started running? I sat and watched the cards reveal themselves....That's when I saw it! The Death Card! I knew it, I just knew it! Here's where the wammy comes in! I think I said something like, OH Lawd! Hahahaha! She said Oh that's a good card...Not to fear...She said there would be a very nice change or transition in my life that I will know about in October but would not happen until November though March of next year. Weird huh? Lawd knows I'll be grabbing the voodoo dolls and pins next...NOT! Hahaha!
OK, Tomorrow, I will post some pictures of cool merchandise, displays and inspiration I've seen the last couple of days, but tonight, I'm throwing in the towel and going to bed...I'm pooped!
Thanks Gang for Coming By! Oh... and Thank you all for the well wishes! I am much much better! Feeling almost my normal self again! Yahoooo! Thanks Again!
