Good morning, MMC!

mgramsey, I'm glad your mom is doing better and was able to move into a regular room. I will continue to pray for her and your entire family.

Merrymistletoe, I'm glad to see you posting this morning. I hope all of your technical issues get fixed - we miss you around here! {{{hugs}}}

Christmasstar, enjoy your day off today. What a scary thing to have happen in your neighborhood. I am so glad you are safe! Congrats on the quickness of your cashiering - sounds like you are finding your rhythm!

Snowflake, I am glad that Harlowe is doing better!

My daughter has her first driving lesson today after school with an instructor. I hope she does well with the private lessons. I just can't teach her. I am a nervous wreck.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!
Hope you have a great day, HmG!!

And hope all goes well for your daughter today with her driving lesson.

Well yesterday I to drop the truck off at the garage because I could smell the rear brakes burning (locking up) and the truck pulling to the right in the front. Total damage, $850.00! It needed new shoes and all new hardware for the rear brakes and for the front ones, new pads, calipers, turn the rotors, re-pack all the bearings, new brake hoses. The mechanic said I could have lost my brakes at any time because the brakes hoses were so dry rotted... That would have not been good!

So, tomorrow I'm putting the mini van in the shop for a once over before I head down to Florida and back (about 2000-2500 miles) depending on how much I drive while down there. I do this every time just to be on the safe side of things. Boy, I hope nothing wrong with that one, the last thing I want to do is break down, on I-95 in another state somewhere. That happened to me once about 15 years ago as we were driving to Bush Gardens in Virginia, about 20 miles to go to the hotel, the alternator went up in my old Chevy Blazer right on I-95. Had to get a tow truck to tow it to some garage (Bob's garage in Bob's town; lol...) and it cost me $500.00 for a rebuilt alternator.

Boy, I bet you that guy was licking his chops when he saw those out of state tags, I could have heard him tell the rest of the mechanics there that day, " Ok boys, we got a sucker here, shops closing early today.....", ....
Yikes, ouch.

Hope the mini van checks out, and you guys are good to go!!

How many days are you down to?!

I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!

Movie time!!

That's very nice of you to help your neighbor's granddaughter again. Take it easy, and drink plenty of water.
...and be careful of angry granddaughter ex's!!

I have lots of work to do here. Like others here, I have that urge to get the house all clean before leaving for vacation.

Also have to make sure there is enough stuff for the cats when Emily comes to look after them. They all know something is up and are all restless. I worry about leaving them for a week and will miss them.
Enjoy your day off of work, and good luck with your vacation prep!!

Please give the kitties hugs for us!!
(Do you have any others, bedsides Penny & Pocket?)

How are you? How is Mouse doing? And Palmer?

Do you have any storms forecasted for today?

Stay safe.

Wow, all last night and through most of the morning it seemed like there was one continuous thunderstorm. I turned the mini blinds around to block out the lightning flashes and slept fairly well, as did Mouse. Palmer was afraid, poor baby. I heard on the news this morning there might have been three tornadoes south of where I live, in the Flint area. The rain had no where to go so I am keeping tabs on my basement again. It wouldn't surprise me in the least to see it flood, but I am better prepared to take care of things now. Lesson learned!
