Good Friday morning, my Christmas friends!

We were up till 1am working on Elizabeth's video project for Bible class. They used her tablet again to record, and it only store videos in MP4 format, so we had a tough time getting the different videos "stitched" together into one long video that would play on a computer. The final video was a 1/2 gigabyte, and would only play on a PC using Apple QuickTime. I finally had to take a laptop from work to her class this morning, and play it for her class...but it worked. YAY!! The girls got an "A", and now I can forget about that crazy video!

We got a good bit of wiring done on the Camaro yesterday (before I know I had to work on the school project), replacing the entire wiring harness. Getting closer!

I hope y'all have a great day!

Is it likely that your co-workers will let you leave with that crockpot?

This place is like a ghost town today! Half the employees bailed out since it's so nice outside!! My boss is the only one who has been in the office & he hasn't said a word, so I think I'll be able to "sneak" it outa here!!

That sounds vengeful, but she needs a lesson in responsibility.
That is one thing that is bad here when there is ice on the ground. People have no clue and are all over the road. It's very dangerous when it ices over. Since drivers hardly ever deal with here it things get bad. I bet it's frustrating for you since they should be very aware of the dangers and SLOW DOWN! Stay safe this winter, my friend!

My aunt was stopped at a red light and a girl in a mazda just plowed into her, went up underneath her car, and shoved her sportage into an Esclade that was in front of her. The lady didn't even try to stop. She told my aunt that she remember's hitting her brakes and then she blacked out. Well my aunt's car had the radiator busted so she called me to come get her. I got there about the same time the cop did. While I was walking up it was clear to me what had happened and the cop apparently smelled the same thing I did. He went up to the young girl who was on her cell phone and told her to get off. She didn't listen. So he told her again. She didn't listen again. Then she tried to walk away. So he grabbed the phone out of her hand, turned it off, and threw it on the hood of her car. Then he proceeded to handcuff her and put her in the back of the cop car. He then walked back up to the car and took out her purse and pulled out a little margarine bowl. When he opened it, it was filled with weed. Which didn't shock me because her car reeked of it and I could smell it from 15 feet away. So I'm sure the girl was smoking and not paying attention when she ran into my aunt. There was no skid marks at all so if she tried to stop, it wasn't until she was right up on her. So after all the paper work was filled out, my mom had a wrecker that they use at the dealership she works for come pick it up and tow it there so she could go ahead and get the paperwork started tonight on it. Then I took my aunt home and waited while she called the insurance company to file a claim so I could take all the numbers to mom. Luckily, my aunt wasn't hurt. She is pretty stiff and I expect she will be worse in the morning but nothing that required an ambulance or anything.

As for me, I'm exhausted. I obviously couldn't drive with the boot on so I've been running around without it all night. So my foot is throbbing pretty good now. So I'm going to sign off for the night and put this foot up. I have to take my aunt to get a rental car in the morning and to mom's work to sign some paperwork, so I'll be late checking in.

Goodnight, Everyone!!!!!!
Thank God your aunt is okay. I would still have her checked out with a doctor - never know what lasting effects there will be from such an accident. My sister just recently started having severe back pain so she went and had an x-ray taken to see what was causing the problem. The diagnosis was that the way she was sitting at work was making a problem she has had with her back for years but did not know about more pronounced. The doctor told her it was probably caused by whiplash. She never had whiplash although back in the early 70s, she was in a car accident and received quite a jolt. If she had gotten checked out then, she wouldn't be having such a time of it now.

I'm sorry you are having such a hard time resting your foot. Take it easy this weekend, made!!! I will be praying that you heal quick!!!

It is really cold today and I had wear my winter coat. At the moment the weather is a bit better (not raining and snowing), not sure how long it will stayt that way though.



Wow, I'm so happy that your aunt wasn't hurt! Sometimes I just don't understand people. Is it really too much to ask for to don't drive while you are infuenced by alcohol or drugs? Sorry, but this is something that really makes me angry.
Have a great holiday, Cetacea!

We have another brand of bad winter driver here in NE: drivers who don't scrape the snow off their car, except for a tiny spot on the windshield. Not only does it cut off their visibility in poor weather, but other drivers have been injured by large blocks of snow hurtling off the top of the car or SUV in front of them and obscuring or breaking their windshield. They SHOULD be aware of the dangers, but for some people, their personal desire to be somewhere else in a hurry is more important everyone's safety.
