On the Occassion of my 71st Birthday

I wasn't sure, frankly, that's I'd live this long!  This hasn't been my best year, healthwise, but then again, it hasn't been my worst, either.  The warm weather is holding, so we'll be able to go to the St. James for supper!  I need to figure out...

WHERE TO START?

Boring Weekend

First thing Saturday morning (we left the house at 7:40 am) we went to Wallymart for groceries.  We hadn't been for 12 days - the length of time we were carless.  When we got home, we set up our usual method of unloading the groceries.  Hubby takes a...

Waiting ... waiting ...

Got a call from the car fixit shop.  Our little car is now in the next town over where the faulty rebuilt transmission was built.  And what are they doing?  Rebuilding the faulty rebuilt transmission.  Sigh.   I have to have some blood tests...
