Another wonderful day in the neighborhood!

I had an easy night at work tonight. About half of the plant workers took a vacation day, so it wasn't very messy. On the contract issue, no word yet. ...I hate not knowing if I'll even have a job. I can't do anything but wait and see.

I stopped at the Sonic closest to us on the way home, one that has a lot of the local high school girls working there. Apparently my vehicle, a green GMC Jimmy with a rainbow licence plate on front, outed me. I guess the kids at school have gotten the word spread that that is what I drive. The car hop that waited on me was looking strangely at my Jimmy even before she could have ever seen me. I saw her talking to the crew inside, everyone all smiles looking in my direction. Then she brought out my order, and nearly ran back inside to giggle and point. I don't mind that, in fact, I like that I made people think about transsexuals. I presented myself well. I gave her a good tip. (I always do at Sonic, Patty Lou and the girls all worked at one.) I did nothing negative. If just one of them came away with a better feeling about trans people, I did good.

I got 2 1/2 hours of intense sunning today. Unfortunately, I was hanging onto a lawn mower. In my swimming suit top and short jean cut offs, I looked good doing it! Tomorrow, I'll lay by the "pool". Some of you have seen the "pool", most haven't. Maybe a pic, .....maybe!

You handled that well, Steph.

Never been to a Sonic. There are a few here. Many have told me that is where you go for the best burgers.
