Good morning. I'm not so crabby this morning, but then I haven't gone outside to try to start my car either. When I get my brave up a little, I'll go out and try.
Yesterday, SIL Eddie came over and used an electric battery starter to get my car going. After that, I took my car to the dealership to find out why the battery had gone dead. I could have saved my self the time and trouble because the guy there only said that the only way it could have been drained was if I had left something on overnight. Eddie had already checked for this, and like I told him, I left absolutely nothing on.
Because Joe had gone with me to the dealership, I had to try hard to behave like a lady. Next time, I'll go alone! When I get that mad, I want to express myself a bit, and not just do the "yes sir" and "no sir" thing. So instead, I'll do the next best thing. Folks, if your car needs servicing and it just might be the fault of the dealership, take a mechanic with you if you go to BERNARDI HYUNDAI.
There, now although that did not solve any mechanical problems, it certainly soothed my feathers a bit.
Today is the first day of our two day "heat wave". We are now up to about 15 degrees F, heading for the upper 40's. Tonight will stay around 36F and tomorrow should reach 50F. Then tomorrow night it will be back to the cold temps again. I have just gone outside to start my car, and yes, it started. That is good because I have to go to work tonight.
I found a couple of cute stories on my daughter's Facebook page that I thought I would share. The first one is a must because it's about a dwarf, and the second one brought back memories of years gone by.
"I rear-ended a car this morning... the start of a REALLY bad day!
The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!!!
He looked up at me and said "I am NOT Happy!"
So I said, "Well, which one ARE you then?"
That's how the fight started.
When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run, my wife kept
hinting to me that I should get if fixed. But somehow, I always
had something else to take care of first, the shed, the boat,
making beer.....Always something more important to me.
Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point. When
I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass,
busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. I
watched silently for a short time and then went into the house.
I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again, I
handed her a toothbrush.
I said "when you finish cutting the grass, you might as well
sweep the driveway."
The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.
***************************Many years ago, shortly after I had bought my first house, the grass in the yard was getting quite tall, but the my fiancé's lawnmower was broken. After asking him several times to get it fixed, I took a pair of kitchen shears and proceed to sit in the grass and cut all of it with the scissors. I must say that I did a pretty good job, but would not consider doing it that way again. It took a week for the blisters on my hands to go away. Soon after that, the lawnmower was fixed.
I found a couple of really cute tee shirts for my kitty lovin' friends.
Folks, here's another photo image that I got from my daughter's Facebook page. PLEASE, PLEASE remember to bring your pets indoors when the weather is as cold as it has been lately. We have domesticated them, and they cannot survive out in the bitter cold. If they do go out for a few minutes, do wash their the chemicals off their feet. Make sure they are warm and have plenty of food and water. They make dog and cat sweaters, coats and booties for a reason. Please use them.
Well, now it's time to feed my little Pogo. He is lying quietly beside me on the sofa. He doesn't ask for much. Just some good food, his turkey when he wants it, and lots of hugging. I say he can have all he wants! Till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
