Hot and Cold

   I sure run hot and cold in my journal keeping.  I posted entries in Dribble for six days straight, and then nothing for four.

   I have a belly-ache that stays with me for hours, and my Chevy Astro van had a battery-ache that needed attention. Poor old Chevy sat so long unattended that the battery went dead, completely. Also it became so dirty that it looked like a lump of clay.  By coincidence a guy with a portable car wash came along do someone else's car and I snagged him.  He washed the car in place since we couldn't move it. It looked magnificent.  He spent two hours cleaning it up.

   And a friend of a friend is mechanical enough to remove the battery, recharge it, replace it, and start the car. His only problem was that the car had sat in one spot so long that a Black Widow spider had built a nest in the engine compartment.  Getting rid of the spider took time too.  You don't mess with those ladies. The mechanical friend hates spiders.

   That is enough whining, Angie will get turned off.

I haven't been as active journaling myself. My internet availability has been extremely limited since I have been up north.  Passed through your neck of the woods on Wednesday ~ I would have stopped, but had no idea where to find you.  Love and blessings, Penny  http://journals.aol.com/firestormkids04/FromHeretoThere

hahahahahahahahahah...everyone has a right to whine, even you!  God knows I do, however there is a difference in occasional whine and 24/7 whine.  I hope your belly gets better, that is just aweful pain :(
