Hmpfh

Still trying to load pictures. I don't know why I can't seem to get the hang of it. Really very annoying!

Hope everybody is looking forward to a great Thanksgiving holiday. I am going to be resting and writing! I am very excited about the future right now. And I am more relaxed after the trip than I've been in a VERY long time. I have a great deal to be thankful for.

Of course, in my life, things tend to be a little bit more balanced than in a lot of folks:

Bad news -- clutch went out on the truck.
Good news -- my bank balance was almost EXACTLY the amount needed AND the clutch didn't go out when I was clear the heck in Austin, or on the way to the airport, but when I got back home and within walking distance of a friend's house so I could call the mechanic.

My whole life is like that. Almost completely balanced. From what I understand, it doesn't necessarily work that way for other folks.

Anyway, got the new clutch and the truck is back. Weird, weird, weird. It's like learning to drive a stick shift all over again because the new clutch is so sensitive and, as the mechanic put it "You certainly did get your use out of THAT clutch." (i.e., 'damn woman! You wore the poor thing out! Think you could've replaced it a LITTLE sooner?') LOL.

I had a very happy birthday yesterday. Things are going well for the most part. My blood pressure is even low.

Big smiles to everybody. Can't think of a great movie quote for today's mood, so I guess you guy's are just going to have to be deprived. (I said dePRIVED not Depraved! GRIN)

Birthday? Was it your birthday Cie? OMG! I'm sooooo sorry! HAPPY BIRTHDAY and I'm sorry for missing it!

Also sorry to hear about the clutch, but that's how things work out most of the time, huh? A handful of good stuff with enough not-so-good stuff to balance it out!

Take care and have a GREAT holiday weekend, okay?

:)
