After weather forecasters predicting another cold wet rainy day you can imagine our delighted surprise at having ourselves a warm sunny 70+ day. Some things are just a downright bonus in the old weather department.
OUR FRONT YARD IS GREENING UP NICELY
THESE 2 CHAPS KEEP CLOSE WATCH ON ALL OUR GREENERY
No point in me trying to jazz up our day's activities. Nice day of course but just not too jazzable in the old writing department. If it doesn't interest me to write about our day it sure isn't going to interest anyone to read about our day. There is always a very fine line between what makes a post interesting or ho-hum. Always a challenge for any Blogger sitting down to write a post to know where that line lies. A very fine line indeed.
Kelly has had an old antique vanity in her bedroom for years & after re-vamping her room this week decided it was time for the vanity to go. Deciding to list it on a couple area 'For Sale' sites she needed a picture. We carried the vanity to the sunroom where I took a photo of it. Funny thing happened. She had over a dozen replies right away but only two of them were interested in the vanity. The other replies were folks answering just to say how much they liked the picture. Don't know if I have ever heard of that happening before. Frustrating for Kelly though because she has not had any firm offers on the vanity. It does need re-finishing but maybe folks aren’t into doing that so much anymore & maybe older furniture has lost it’s charm over the years. We do have a much younger buyers market out here these days.
STILL BUSY ORGANIZING, RE-ORGANIZING, PRE-ORGANIZING & POST ORGANIZING THE RIGS BINS
Our 03 Hyundai Santa Fe is still at the BAYFIELD GARAGE waiting to have a new clutch installed. Latest word from our trusted garage is we may have the Santa Fe home Friday afternoon sometime. Ever since meeting Kelly back in the summer of 93 we have always known the convenience of being a 2 vehicle family. Sure would take some adjusting on our part if we were to ever decide on having just one vehicle. With our own independent natures we are both just used to coming & going anywhere anytime we please. But come to think of it now as I am writing this, we are actually a 1 vehicle family for half the year. In Congress Az we only have the Jeep & by golly come to think of it we get along with that just fine.
DOGGY RUNNING FAST IN THE GRASS THIS AFTERNOON
I have never been a horn honker. You can cut me off in traffic, do something totally stupid, be a flaming idiot with your vehicle, hog the lane beside me or do whatever it is you do but you will not get me to honk my horn at you. Experience has shown me horn honking just makes an already unpredictably unstable situation worse. I'm sure many road rage cases are quickly escalated by drivers hammering on their horns when another driver intentionally or unintentionally does something stupid. Now instead of having one emotionally upset driver, you have two. Sometimes it doesn’t require a driver to do anything wrong at all. Horn honkers will use their horns to bull their way through traffic anyway. So horn me if you will but I will not horn you back…………10-4:))
SPRING IN THESE PARTS IS ALL ABOUT BEING GREEN:))
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Said the FBI agent to the bank teller after the bank was robbed for the third time by the same bandit: "Did you notice anything special about the man?" "Yes, he seemed better dressed each time!"
Mother decided that 10-year-old Cathy should get something 'practical' for her birthday.
"Suppose we open a savings account for you?" mother suggested. Cathy was delighted.
"It's your account, darling," mother said as they arrived at the bank, "so you fill out the application." Cathy was doing fine until she came to the space for 'Name of your former bank.' After a slight hesitation, she put down 'Piggy.'
