I am still far away from but just had to share this wild story while it is fresh in
My Mind's Eye?
Since we arrived in the mile high city, aka Denver, Colorado, my sinuses have been crazy, dried out and bleeding. I think it was flying and the high altitude here.
There is not a drug store near here. After lunch in Silverton, which has one paved streets, I asked the. waitress, who spoke perfect English, if there was a drug store in town. I need some saline spray. She looked at me funny. I said you know for Advil and aspirin and such. She said oh yes 2 blocks on the right. I knew it would not be a chain store so I was just looking at each store. I saw a white flag w a green cross, similar to a Red Cross flag, hanging over a door. It was two blocks on the right. I walk in the guy asked if he could help me. I said yes I need some saline spray. He said I only sale marijuana in here. 😱🙀 I said that won't help me and I nearly tripped over my feet getting out of there. My husband was waiting outside he asked if I got any. I said no they only sale marijuana in there. I think the look on his face was probably the same look I had on mine when that guy said that to me. Stunned. As we left, I noticed under the flag it read 21+. Stores have odd names now... I thought that was the store name. So we start walking back down the street I saw a bakery shop I went in asked a gal in her early 50's if there was a drug store in town I needed saline spray. Absolutely she said it is just up the street on the left it is called The Lookout they sale hiking and camping supplies and toiletries. I told her my waitress sent me to a marijuana store. She nearly fell over laughing as did the other workers. Off I go to The lookout they had 2 bottles of saline spray. I told that woman my story she also got a good huge chuckle out of it. Said it was the funniest story she had heard this season. So at 68 1/2 I can say I have been in a pot store! Colorado recently made selling pot legal.
Evidently pharmacy would have been a better choice of words in Colorado.
This was cut and pasted from an email I sent to my daughter hopefully no typos.
Our vacation has been wonderful. 2 more nights.
Moral of this story beware of white flags w green crosses.
Until we meet again.
