It's Official...TIME IS RUNNING OUT for my Old Lame Horse

DH hit a milestone today. We went to Wal-Mart and he had to use one of the motorized carts. Aside from the obvious hilarity value of this event (he's only 44), the Wal-Mart Greeter DID NOT BELIEVE him when he told him he was having knee surgery on Wednesday. He quizzed him on which doctor, where was the surgery, etc. The kids and I laughed our heads off. This probably did not help his case.

However, he DID get to ride the motorized cart. Of course, he was already riding it when he asked. And he is at least 6' tall and well over 200 pounds, so perhaps the greeter did not choose to try to remove him from it. :)

He had fun, if the beeping sounds were any indication. Apparently, it is more fun to drive those things BACKWARD so that they make lots of annoying noise.

And he did make himself useful by going after one item on our list. That is right. He had ONE tiny item in the cart on his vehicle. NO WONDER they did not believe him that he needed it!

So, I am thinking that PASTURE land I have picked out for this OLD LAME HORSE of mine is looking pretty good. :) I think the Wal-Mart greeter will agree, that is, if it will keep DH OFF of the MOTORIZED CARTS! :)
