Today was a little relaxing, Sherry fixed breakfast I started a painting Mark wanted. It was a tropical scene he had seen me do may times with the song ‘The Haven of Rest’. Then we went to pay some bills. We even stopped by Mc D’s for a cup of coffee. The drove to Gastonia. Just before our destination, smoke or steam was coming from under the hood. A water line burst. I took our camel back water packs (that we used hiking) and filled the radiator. Drove to the Honda place because it was close. Informed the mechanic we needed it repaired quickly, or it would have to wait. We were due for a local newspaper interview in a couple hours and still needed to clean up and dress, both of us were dirty, not expecting to stop. I remembered what mama said, “Always wear clean underwear in case you are in an accident.”
I was thinking you could have at least cleaned up, you never know what will happen. LOL.
They replaced the heater hose, what would have cost me $5 years ago because I would have bought the hose and replaced it myself, cost $153. OUCH! Of course now they have to remove X, Y & Z to get to the hose. I am sure they earned at least half of the money. (Is that good? But you know that up front when you go to a dealer.) I was afraid to take a chance on driving ten miles to a local mechanic. (I done the painting in a recess in his rec room wall.)
He then mounted a door with glass in the upper half.
WE made it home in time for me to finish the picture and shower before the interview.
The interview went well; I haven’t mentioned my latest book, “Why Not Forever?” We just received our proof and took it with us. I will have more to say about it later. Yes S’Gar went on the back burner while I did this one.
I think I have developed a pattern. I start writing a full length Novel, and in the middle get writer’s block and start a short book. This one is non-fiction sex advice. Okay not sex advice, marriage advice. Maybe not marriage advice, but how to stay together. Well I am not sure. Until after I read the proof. LOL.
I feel like the kid I mentioned an entry or so back who was typing away on his grandpa’s PC, he was typing a story but did not know what it was about because he could not read.
( NOOOOOOOOO I heard that all the way out here, any sex advice I would give would have to be fiction! Not funny!)
Here is Sherry lining up a sh0t (She really does not shoot pool, but it looks good doesn't it?)
See the door in the back ground.
PS: (from Shirl)
The reason dogs don't make good dancers they have two left feet.
It is easy to blame someone else. You just point a finger at them. But have you ever noticed where the other three are pointing when you do that.
Marriage is an institution in which the man loses his Bachelor's Degree and the woman gets her Master's.
