Tuesday's Tip

Today's tip has nothing to do with jewelry! My tip is watch out for other people,especially old ones!Today I went to the dentist,groceries etc. and when I left the bank some old man almost ran over me! He obviously did not look behind him and I was looking down,putting my glasses back in my purse,and out of the corner of my eye I saw him back out of his parking space! If I had taken one more step he would have hit me. I of course told him "you almost ran over me!" all he said was "oh,I didn't mean it" UURRRGGGG!!So,now I am home safe and tomorrow is cherry canning day!I will try to make a few beads also.So,check my Etsy often for new beads to come soon!Sheila
