I've never heard of that term, so I looked it up on Google.   You don't want to know where my dirty mind went with your post.  LOL


I daresay I can imagine  :o ;) ;) ;)

Hey Tony!

Werd ich zum Augenblicke sagen, "Verweile doch! Du bist so schön..."

I did finally take my Excedrin Migraine and my head is feeling better, starting to, but at least I made it for 32 hours in between taking that medicine, so that is progress.


Good for you, Debbie!

I thought when I first searched the car, there was an option for an emerald green, so I thought I'd name her Emmy.  Now I don't see that option.  However, the other color I like is Silver Ice, so I'd name her Silver.

Silver is nice, but I really think emerald green would be beautiful.  Emmy.   :)

It's good to have fresh ingredients, once in a while.

During the week, I often prepare myself a canned soup for lunch (tiny can).

I don't cook at all, or prepare anything from fresh ingredients, Ingy, except to slice up small tomatoes, after I rinse them well.

Even lettuce, I buy in a ready-to-eat bag so I don't have to clean it.

That's just the way I am.  Never trusted myself to handle fresh foods in a sanitary manner.

And a tiny can of canned soup wouldn't go very far with me....I'm usually hungry enough to eat a large can.

The snow is sticking on the street, and noticeably deeper on the grass. Not a huge amount yet, but accumulating steadily.

Sounds worrisome, Fritz.   :(

Nice-looking car, Chuck.

I know I'll eventually need a new car, but mine is still in pretty good shape, so maybe not for a while.  It's a 1999 model, so will be 20 years old this summer.  But it has only 37,000 or so miles on it, many of which were Turnpike miles back and forth to Pittsburgh once a year.  The car has never been to Colorado, and hardly ever out of the state.  It might have been to the DC area for a meeting while I was still working; but I wasn't usually the driver for those trips.

So....it's never needed any major work, except tires, filters, can't even remember shocks, and it needed the A/C serviced once.  Still, I'm a little leery about driving it too far and risking a breakdown far from home, so I haven't really decided whether I'll be needing a new one soon.

I got rid of my little 1993 Daihatsu Mira a few months ago after a mechanic told me it would die any minute. We are driving Phong's Toyota Echo of about the same age. It has a recurring problem with acceleration in low gears when we start of a morning. Three different mechanics have failed to diagnose and fix the problem.

He keeps talking about getting a new, bigger car, but we don't have money to splash out. He wants to take out a loan, an idea I reject and my financial advisor agrees. I'd rather wait and save up and pay cash later.

I wish economical electric cars and the infrastructure to make them viable existed here, but Australia is lagging way behind.

I remember being quite impressed by him in Cold Mountain.

Remind me what Cold Mountain is, could you please Fritz?

I didn't see the movie, but was that the book about coal mining, written by John Grisham?

I  not feeling so well today. I have had digestive problems since last night, and am achey with a mild headache, and a slight upset stomach.

I have been using my rice bags for the acheyness. I am just taking it easy today.

I hope you'll be feeling better soonest, Linda.

Well, Tony, in general I'm at the point in my life where I don't like taking out loans, or spending on big cars, for that matter.  That's hard to do when you're retired.  So I'd say I agree with your philosophy.
