I'm stringing together another set of random thoughts for you today because, well, that's how I roll. You can thank me in the comments. So, it's not only raining today, but it's also sleeting, and snowing. In other words, it's still wet outside. As I'm typing this, folks are abandoning ship and heading home from work. I already had plans to leave early to attend a funeral, but at this point I'm not sure I'll be able to make it to the funeral, which makes me very sad. There is, however, hope on the horizon because according to the forecast I saw this morning, after today, there is no more rain in the forecast for the next seven days. It might be a modern day miracle.
Monday is my garbage collection day (I told you this was going to be a
series of random thoughts) and when I got home Monday afternoon one of
my very sweet neighbors had brought my garbage can up from the street
and placed it on the side of my house in its resting place. I thought
that was just the nicest thing. I have no idea which neighbor did it,
but it really made my day and I was very grateful to not have to drag up
the can in the pouring rain.
Jackie told me recently about a scam going on in town where people come
door to door selling cleaning supplies and then they scope out your
house and come back the next day and burglar you. I had not heard
anything about it on the news, but then again, I hardly pay attention to
anything in the news that doesn't involve Lance Armstrong or Manti
Te'o's fake girlfriend. Anyway, on Tuesday night, the doorbell rang and
there was some hoodlum outside the door. I didn't even give him a chance
to say anything, I just yelled, "I'm not interested!" and slammed the
door. The Tide acted like a ferocious beast so if this guy was part of
the scam Jackie told me about, then maybe he won't come back for fear
that he will be eaten alive by a dog that walks on three legs. So far,
my house has not been broken in to and I hope it stays that way.
I remembered this week that I completely forgot to tell you about the
best Christmas card I received this past Christmas. It was from The
Tide. She really is talented! She signed it, mailed it and everything!
have a sneaking suspicion something is about to be very wrong with my
car. The last two mornings the power steering hasn't been so great when I
first started the car and there have been a couple of high pitched
squeals coming from under the hood like a belt was whining. I suspect it
might be the alternator. I've had many experiences with a bad
alternator and therefore this is my first inclination. I could be wrong.
I mean, maybe the car has just been really cold. Whatever the problem
is, I hope it won't cost me an arm and a leg to repair.
I think this is all the random bit of news I have for the moment. I'm
soon about to brave the world of snow and ice and will report back as to
whether or not I make it to the funeral. I sure hope I am able to make
it because this gentleman was one of my favorite people and I would like
to pay my respects, but it seems the weather may have another plan in
store for me.
Stay safe and warm everyone!
