I mailed your present this morning, [livejournal.com profile] oddyssia, which means by Monday I can talk freely about the knitting projects that have been taking up my time the past couple months.

Next step ... learning to 'bobble'

Happy birthday, dear 'grieving_pln" -- and have I mentioned lately how wonderful it is to know that you are, indeed, celebrating a Happy Return of the Day????

Okay, the semi-sad stuff....Along with all the busy work-related and canine related activities consuming my waking hours over the past two months (have I mentioned the knitted Dish cloths? I really like the 'feather and fan' pattern I found, as it is surprisingly forgiving of mistakes, such as too many knit-stitches between the yarn-overs, or knit-togethers in the wrong place because I lost count-- it still looks pretty regardless!), I've been fretting about the state of my 1994 Buick LeSabre -- things needing to be repaired, odd sounds from the engine, not-so-slow air leaks in the tires, transmission fluid leaks, brake fluid leaks -- keeping a running tally in my head (exhaust system, tires, shocks, brakes, ENGINE) and came to the conclusion about a week ago that the cost of bringing my dear 'Buck Hakkai' up to safety standards was going to cost more than he was worth. I feel bad because I really should have been more pro-active about maintenance all along, but...

Our bank had a repossessed 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis with reasonable cost and payments, but we decided to see what else was available locally... unlike last time, I couldn't just pay cash (paid for 'Buck Hakkai' with a combination of tax refund and insurance settlement), and the banks are leery of financing on pre-owned vehicles that are more than five years old. The dealership that sold Husband his car three years ago had a few possibilities posted on their website, so we went over there yesterday 'just to look'.....




Behold! The reason RIA Credit Union owns my soul for the next four and a half years: a 2004 Chevy Malibu, one previous owner who judging from the CARFAX report only drove it back and forth from Texas to Iowa for the past six years.

*Waves 'Bai' to DemiCon, MediaWest*Con, AnimeIowa, I-Con (might be able to swing TARDIS-Con in November)* for the forseeable future*

I figure it's the 13th already over on your side of the Pond, so for once I'm not early, not late, but right on time!

Have a good one, okay?
