Happy birthday Dad! — Today is my dad’s birthday. He would be well over a 100 if he were alive. He played the accordion. I always wished I had a photo of him playing.
It ain’t red – I finally bought a new car. This is not the ideal time and there weren’t a lot of selections. I liked my old car (until the day the brakes didn’t work) so I looked first at that model. I could get a new one with everything I wanted or a 3 year old one with 35K miles. The old one was $3K more than the new one so it was a no brainer. Neither were red. I will be driving a sedate old people’s color car. Boo! The good news is it wheels and working brakes and I’ll hopefully have it by the end of the month.
Speaking of wheels – I have been driving the beloved husband’s minivan when I need a car which is not all that often. It’s a lot like driving the Hindenburg and we all know how that ended.
That’s weird – I used to buy my birdseed at a farm feed store. The price was the best around. Since we moved the feed store is a journey so I was looking for someplace more local to get sunflower seeds. Walmart had a price equal to the feed store which is at least $5/bag less than most other places. I get it in 40 lb. bags. I decided to have it shipped rather than picking up in the local store which is about five minutes away. I live on the east coast and it was in stock locally. They shipped it from Sacramento, California — way, way on the other coast. I almost felt bad for not picking it up. Almost.
I’ll never believe an eye witness – We drove past the scene of my accident. In my head I have a vivid picture of what the area looked like. I was way off. I could have sworn that there was at least 3 to 4 foot of vegetation that I drove through before I hit the pole. Nope. It was set just inside the curb. When I had the accident the weeds were high. Now it’s mowed and looks like a lawn (with weeds). This has changed my opinion of eye witnesses.
So how was your week?
