Carol Perkins: A day late and a dollar short
It happens to all of us. Not all of us have the same sense of humor about it as Carol Perkins. You plan & plan for an event, but your mind omits one vital element. (Done it myself. Had to spend a whole week in Arkansas when I arrived in Little Rock one whole week before the show. EW)
Next previous column: Carol Perkins: Little ones just don't think about grands' lives >
By Carol Perkins
"Guy, would you like to see Ray Stevens in concert?" I asked when I saw the tickets were on sale at Skypac.
"I thought he was dead." Typical reply.
I knew he liked Ray Stevens so I ordered tickets and planned the event.
It is not often that we actually spend a full day and evening on an outing, so I scheduled the day and announced I had bought tickets.
In the meantime, I had also bought tickets for Kenny Rogers and when my friend Judy realized that her class reunion was the same night, I had to try to find someone to take her ticket. None of my friends wanted to see Kenny so Guy was going to go with me.
He was relieved when my friend Connie came down that weekend and took the ticket.
With so much going on within a week and a half, it is no wonder I was confused. Saturday morning I announced our plans for the day.
The concert wasn't until 7:30 so we were going to Bowling Green, have lunch and find a good movie and then go to Jackson's Orchard. After that we would have dinner and go to the concert. Making food a focus ensures that Guy will have a good time.
That morning I looked for my "will call" paper I had printed off when I bought the tickets. Naturally, I couldn't find it, so I went to the computer and typed in Skypac so I could print the form again. The advertisement for Ray Stevens was gone.
There was nothing I could click on to take me to that page. There was nowhere I could download the form I needed. Then like a magnifying glass appeared before me, there it was. The ad I couldn't find reappeared. Ray Stevens, Oct. 2nd at Skypac.
Saturday, the day of our outing, was Oct. 3rd. A day late and a dollar (or more) short.
