Copyright Susan Ogden Apologies in advance...this story is kinda longish.... Today Luke and i did a little more exploring. We headed north to run errands and got a taste of the “well to do” section of the island. Ridiculously HUGE homes on very large lots...more room than anyone with less than 6 kids could possibly use!! Within 20 miles we arrived in Corolla, after passing thru the town of Duck (Duck Donuts are AWESOME, btw!). We went to Corolla with a purpose in mind....well, at least i did! I wanted to take Luke to see the wild horses that roam the beaches there, and to see Currituck Light. Alas, we only accomplished the latter, after finding out that you can no longer roam the wild beaches on your own anymore to locate and see the horses. You are required to purchase a “Tour”, which is 2 hours long and $48.00 a person. There was little chance of Luke sitting for 2 hours in a 4 wheeler looking for horses that he could not touch! Currituck Light, on the other hand, was beautiful! We met a man, as i was taking photographs of it, who said to me, “No photographs until you climb it!”. i looked at him like he had 3 heads and then went back to shooting! He then said “Seriously, the best shot is when you go in and look straight up. Worth the price of admission!” I sighed and told him he had indeed intrigued me with that statement, and i would get my exercise for the day, carrying a 26 lb human and my camera....even tho i am afraid of heights, thanks to him! Luke was a trooper. He climbed all 214 steps HIMSELF...just holding my hand at my insistence, because i was terrified he would fall thru the holes where the risers should be, but aren’t! PLUS the steps were metal with holes in them and i HAD to look down at him to make sure he was ok and therefore i could see down to below....NOT COOL! When we got to the top, i decided to carry him, much to his protest (which only lasted until he saw how high in the air we were and then he clung to me like a sand spur! which are MISERABLE spiky, spiny plants that feel like you are being stabbed with a zillion needles and get stuck to you like glue). i took a VERY quick series of shots to try and do a stitch for a pano, which him hanging on me and trying desperately to get back inside the door! Apparently he has some fear of heights like his Mmm-ma!! I am ok if i look OUT....just not straight down. Going back down the spiral stairs, i decided to carry him and inch my way down by holding the handrail and looking at the wall, and not thru the steps! Having survived that, i took him out to lunch and then headed home to fight with BC/BS about their inability to get a bill to my house since July. Call # 4....and i will admit, i was less nice than i have been for the past 3 calls....out of pure frustration. They can get me booklets...and ID cards...but not one freaking bill has arrived in spite of of 3 previous calls, and verifying my address 3 times. TODAY, they tell me that my account was “BLOCKED” from getting bills sent to me...and i am beginning to wonder if that is a way of canceling people that pay their own insurance...which would be pretty darned stupid since they charge us the equivalent of an arm, 2 legs and my first born each month for worthless coverage such as Prostate care and Maternity for me (which i FINALLY no longer need!), pediatric care for young children i do not have and Obstetrics coverage for the husband who has never had the “pleasure” of being able to bear a child in the first place! I THINK i may finally have gotten it straightened out....maybe.....sorta.......kinda.........hopefully.................so now i am going back to my bliss in my bubble, thank you!
