IT'S MY STICK...NO, IT'S MY STICK!!!!
Our nasty little cold snap is still with us with temps expected to dip down around freezing tonight again. Sunlight by day & icicles by night it seems.
Picked up our Santa Fe this morning & our wallets are definitely lighter by $ 1,547.73. I've often heard it said years ago that good tires are the cheapest form of insurance you can buy. Couple that with a few new front end parts & we'll consider that premium... paid in full!!
BALL JOINTS, NEW TIRES, FRONT END ALIGNMENT, ETC$. ETC$. ETC$.
Plugged away at my garden & tool shed clean up again today & now have enough floor space visible for a Saturday night square dance now. The junk purge continues!!
HEY MAX, THE STICK IS BEHIND YOU
Our work related 3 hour first aid course Tuesday night centered around CPR training (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation). We were shown how the new people friendly AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR'S (AED) work & understand they will soon be in most all public places with easy accessibility for anyone to use in case of an emergency. CPR was also practiced on plastic dummy models & it was all very informative. Thursday night's class will be fractures, broken bones, splints & slings, etc. Wished I could have taken my camera there last night & got a shot of fellow driver Bruce trying to get his arms around me for one of them there HEIMLICH MANEUVERS:))

Kelly phoned from Deer Park Lodge this afternoon saying the lake had a really pretty aqua color to it so I loaded up Checkers & Max right away & we went over for some photos & a game of water sticks. Both dogs love playing in the water but the waves were a little too strong this afternoon so I had to be careful to only toss the sticks a few feet offshore. Those guys aren't as young & strong as they used to be & they were quick to remind me that I wasn't either as the 3 of us trudged our way back up the long steep hill from the beach.
BIT OF A CLIMB UP FROM THE BEACH
I'm really short for anything to blog about tonight so before I sit here too long & customarily launch into something silly I'll just quietly back myself away from the computer & maybe go watch a little mind numbing night time television........NOT!!!!
