Yesterday was our second day of 90+ degree temperatures. I had planned to do some outside work but decided against it because of the temps.
Kathy had a 10:30 PT appointment which we figured would take about an hour. She was home in less than 10 minutes. Where she had to go was just up the street from our house.
Now, she was all dressed because of her appointment. I was not going to do outside work because of the heat, so, what should we do with the day?
I had a suggestion. I had two watches that were dead and needed new batteries. Kathy had six. They are Swatch watches that we bought during different trips to NYC. I knew we were not going back the the Big Apple anytime soon so that we could get the batteries replaced. I searched on line and couldn’t find a way to order just batteries. The watches had to be taken to a store.
There are no stores in the Harrisburg area. The closest one is at the King of Prussia Mall near Philly. I looked at Kathy and made a suggestion – road trip. She agreed.
I got myself ready and we took off for the two hour trip. In some aspects I am cheap. I didn’t want to take the turnpike and pay a toll so we took rt. 422 instead. It was a nice trip.
Now, we haven’t been to the King of Prussia mall in years. It sure had changed. Our mask mandate was lifted yesterday, but we still took ours and wore them. I still feel more comfortable doing this.
Once we got into the mall we had no idea where the Swatch shop was. Luckily they have interactive directories so we were able to find the store and the route to get there.
Of course having lunch was first on my list, but I will save that for a future post.
We found the store with no trouble and gave our watches to the gentleman behind the counter. While he changed the batteries we looked around the store. I just came to get my two watches back in working order. I did not come for a new watch. I don’t need one. I have several and now all of them work. I also have a phone that tells me the time when I want it.
So, what did I do? You guessed it. I got the batteries replaced and I bought a new watch just because. Hey, what’s one more? (Old eyes need big clear numbers to read the time.)
