Our Safelite Story

Sammie’s Never Disappoints

Stocking the Lockers

Coming back home last week on I75 I heard a crack and there in front of my eyes I saw a ding in the windshield. It didn’t look that bad and I though it could be repaired. Who to call? Well, almost immediately I thought of Safelite. I mean they have such nifty commercials with all those satisfied customers. Thus, once we were home Ms Barbara made a few phone calls and set up an appointment for today.

During the week we received email after email letting us know that our Safelite Tech would be here this morning between 8 am and 12 noon. So we rearranged our schedule and then we sat and waited. Well 8 became 9, 9 became 10, 10 became 11 and finally at 11:30 am we received a phone call. The tech was over an hour away and didn’t believe he was going to be able to make the appointment. Are you kidding me? Well, we cancelled our appointment and started looking for someone new.

That was our Safelite story and it definitely was not a good one. My advice, think twice before you use them.

With the morning gone we decided it was time to go get some lunch.

Time to go get some hot dogs. The only place for them is of course Sammie’s. They make the best chili dogs in the whole area. I had my usual as did Ms Barbara and then we were on our way.

Lunch finished we were off to do some shopping. The cupboards and the lockers are a bit bare and we needed to restock before we leave the end of the month. We spent an hour roaming the aisles and then we headed home to put everything away.

One more stop today. I had an appointment for my second vaccine shot. One, two, three and it was over. As of this evening I have no side effects. That’s not to say tomorrow will not be a different story. Yet, as of now I’m doing fine. So, we are now both double shot card carrying vaccine club members as of today.

That was our day on The Day of Retirement. The day got off to a bad start but it ended just fine. The big bonus of course is the weather. The sky is a deep blue, the winds are light, and the temperatures are just where we like them to be. We’re enjoying each day to the fullest.

Thanks for taking the time to read our blog.  We always appreciate your company, your comments, and your suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.

These are the voyages of  Elvira and her two intrepid travelers.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.

See you on down the road!


  1. Sorry your day got off to a bad start, but you did turn it around. We’ve used Safelite on several occasions here in our area and we’ve always been pleased. Hoping you have no side effects from your 2nd shot. We will get our 2nd one next week. Have a great weekend.


  2. Sounds like Sammie’s saved the day. Last year, we were in Florida at this time. We ate a restaurant called Sonny’s BBQ. It was delicious! I thought of it when you mentioned Sammie’s. I guess they both start with S. In any case, I hope you have a great day on Saturday.
