Darla Stories… 9-1-1 edition, Dallas

Darla Stories… 9-1-1 edition, Dallas

As I mentioned last week, I have had some experience with calling 9-1-1. We lived in Dallas for the first two years we were married. And it just so happens that I was in need of the 9-1-1 services while we were there. We lived in a great complex near some of our best couple friends. It was across the street from a canal and we had a great view of the water. We took lots of after dinner strolls…

Darla Stories… 9-1-1 edition

And I need to say right up front, it will probably turn into 911 edition(S), because, let’s just say, 9-1-1 and I go way back. We have quite the history together. In fact, I think I am now on the official 9-1-1 “do not take her call” list. One of my friends, whose husband was an EMT, used my stories in his training sessions to rookie EMT’ers. I think it went something like this… “not everyone uses 9-1-1 correctly, like…

So remember last week and the story about the Big Gulp my mom “accidentally” drank even though it wasn’t hers? Well, let’s just say, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Because the other day I had to go to the post office. My Suburban was in the shop getting its oil changed and I was driving Bill’s car. I walked out of the post office and got in a car. I was on my cell phone talking to…

Ok, really it’s a Donna story. I started writing the Darla story and it reminded me of the Donna story and I got so tickled I just had to tell hers. My apologies to my mother. As you read this you may think …”oh no she didn’t…..”, but I was there and “oh yes she did.” So here goes… It was back in 1995 and people STILL talk and laugh about it. Just this past Christmas my friend Noel Spann…

A few more things I thought were funny…. Just because it’s spring break doesn’t mean crazy stuff isn’t still happening. Oh no! It’s happening. I thought I’d share a few things that happened as we were getting ready… *First, I bought a cute new jacket at Target in their workout section. On the tag it said “fun pink” so of course I had to have it. Took it home and made a cute outfit with my black yoga pants. I…

A few more things I thought were funny: *Well, for starters, we came home Wednesday night and there were homemade brownies at our front door. They were in a cute pan with a sticker tag on top. It read: Paula Deen’s Yummy Brownies Love, The Carters Problem is, I had NO idea who the Carters were. That however did not deter me from trying one (delish- apparently whoever the Carters were, they could definitely cook!). Bill told me to hurry…

A few more things I thought were funny…. Since several of you mentioned that this “needed” to go on the blog, I thought I’d share with you everything leading up to my visit with our vet today. I should start by giving you the “back story”. It goes like this: Bill and I are not very handy people. My dad is handy, Bill’s dad is handy…but Bill and I, not so much. It’s like the “handy” gene just skipped right…

Well, since I was already highlighting my cooking impaired skills yesterday, I thought I’d share a few more of them today. So here are…”A few more things I thought were funny….”. Like the time when Bill and I were newlyweds. I thought it would be romantic to cook an Italian something together. So I bought the ingredients and we began to assemble manicotti. It called for a clove of garlic. I had never cooked with fresh garlic before and later…

A few more things I thought were funny….. A week or so ago I decided I would try a step aerobics class at our health club. Apparently the instructor has watched a few too many Dancing with the Stars episodes because that is NOT the step aerobics I remember – you know the kind – up and down stepping on and off – none of this “around the world, add in a grapevine, over the front, twist and do it…

O.K., sometimes things are too long to be included in the “Darla Stories….a few more things I thought were funny” posts. This is one of them. So today it is the “Darla Story” for the week, just too long to post more than one. And seriously, I laughed so hard even thinking about writing this that I think it will be enough. I’ve titled it “Air Head” because that is what it was, both literally and figuratively. Here’s what happened:…
