Where My Mind Goes

Pulled a Miss Emily Litella* moment this morning.  

While renewing our dogs license on-line I see a payment category for "Altered" and a payment category for "Senior Altered" with the Senior amount being less.  Hmm? I wonder.  At what age does a dog become a Senior?  I look it up and see it begins around 7 years old for Labs.  Alrighty then!  I scroll to the bottom of the page to pay to find the direction:

*Senior license fees are for persons 65 or older (not for senior animals).

This is when I go into full Emily Litella mode.  'What?'  I say out loud. 'Why in the world would a Senior Citizen need to have a license to own a pet?  I mean, when did this start?'

'Or, why do Senior Citizens have to come to this website to get a special license?  What??  How in the world would they know to come to a county pet licensing site to get their license?'  

Oh Ann.  Have another cup of coffee.

I did finally come around to understand that Senior Citizen's receive a discount on their pet licensing fees not senior dogs.  Ahem.  

I wish I could blame my line of reasoning on middle age but, no.   This is me.

Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!) Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story: I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair , my hair style was a nightmare. My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogram
