We have a running joke here that whenever Jack goes to have the oil changed in the car by himself he trades it off for a newer one.  I was a little scared today as he went alone again.  I sent Darla a text at work that said "Warning, warning, Jack is going to go have the oil changed in the car by himself today."  She sent back the girls at the credit union were all laughing.  Well he managed to get it done without a new car but he had them do a complete check, flush, tired rotation etc. to the tune of $400.  Yuck.

Watched a little of the big Wedding.  I thought they really looked so happy with each other.  I loved that dress.  She did look like a princess, didn't she. 

It's a beautiful day here.  I only wish it would stay, but they claim it will be back to wet and yucky tomorrow.  Hope they're wrong.  I'm so ready for grilling and swinging on the swing, picnics, etc. 

Well better get going.  Have a load of towels to fold and it will be time to go pick up Nicole from school and take her home.  As she is an open enrollment kid there is no bus transportation. With her Mom  now working in another school district and her Dad finally found work, there is no other way for her to get home.

You all have a good rest of the day. 


  1. I think you had better be the one to get the oil changed from now on. :-)
    It is pretty here today too. The sun is shining right now and it is 63 degrees, much nicer than yesterday.

  2. I'm pretty well in sync with my wife on the car situation...we are very careful not to get charged an arm and and leg or ask for anything extra...Lord, I think I'd collapse coming home from an oil change with a $400 bill! Our weather is all over the place too. I'm sure ready for it to get better for a longer stretch...no go so far. Have a good day my friend.

  3. "...whenever Jack goes to have the oil changed in the car by himself he trades it off for a newer one..." I am thankful for laughter, except when tea comes out of my nose. Bwahaha!Kind of reminds me of a woman. "...I am just going to go and buy a new dress..." Then she comes home with new shoes, new purse, new nylons, no sweater... new everything!!!

  4. There's no better time than the present to stop by and wish you a wonderful weekend. Make the most of it, Monday comes fast.
