It sounds like much more coffee is needed. |^|

I cranked Charlotte up and took the garbage to the corner.  She started right up like the good girl she is.  Then I decided to bay bills and all there was for me to pay was my cell phone which is cheap and my water bill which also is cheap.  What a relief since I'm going to have a Peamite bill that I wasn't expecting.

I'll drive into town in just a bit and get a little nicotine and 2 bales of shavings so I can clean the chicken house.
Always move forward. Never look back.

She's a darlin'.  I'm back from town.  I realized when I was driving in the opposite direction to pay my water bill that her gauge said that she was more than out of gas.  She must have been running on love.  Luckily there was a little country store close where they sell extremely expensive gas.  I had no choice so I got $5. worth that put her slightly above empty.  That took me to the water place and all the way to Ellisville for another 5 bucks worth of $2.12 worth that put her at 1/4 full so I could relax a bit.  I mailed off my cell phone bill and went to the feed store for layer pellets and shavings.  After that I had $3.00 in bills and about $8. in quarters.  I needed nicotine and thank God it was on sale.  I still had to use up most of my quarters.  I do believe that it would be easier for me to quit drinking than quit vaping.

It's not as bad as I'm making it out today and I have my SS check in the bank, but I do my best to use that money for bills only when I can.  I absolutely do my best not to put anything more on the credit card.  I don't owe them a lot more but I hate owing to anyone.

Charlotte brought me home safe and sound.  Although her motor and a lot of her other stuff that old any dang thing can break.  I understand because I'm the same.  She does her best, same as I do.  She is a fine lady.  I feel guilty for letting her sit up doing nothing for so long.
Always move forward. Never look back.

...thought I'd chat in here for a minute...

...Ron R came over and we tried several things to see why my blower on the ac isn't pushing much air...I did what I could until I thought I'd better slow down...so far we think there is a block in the return duct or in the cooling area...Ron's familiar with the mechanics of air flow in the system...so tomorrow the duct comes off to see if the fan blows more air or not...it's been a real PITA...and that's not the animal group...!

...I've been resting this afternoon and we're going to take dinner over to his house tonight...Safeway deli, here we come!...
Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound...and zip ties, properly applied, can reduce the movement!
