Ruby & Me
I've been busy. My little beloved red car & I have been spending a lot of time with Rob -- my excellent mechanic. Rob is the kind of guy who listens to a vehicle for a minute or two and tells you what's wrong -- a rare gift -- and what it will cost in a minute or so. On Monday, she goes under the wrench for a mini tune-up and assorted other little things The fun part is that she's over 13 years old and Rob says that she's one of the best cars GM ever made. I'm hoping that she'll last until they pry the keys (and driver's license) out of my cold dead fingers.
The other fun part is that when she needs tires (as she just did recently), I get to go out to the used auto parts yard and get them which scares the hell out of my friends -- the old bikers who work there sorta chuckle when I appear but then they were afraid of bikers back in the day, too. But hey! They give me my propers and I give them theirs.
Have been working for Obama's group when the spirit moves me. And yes, I'm disappointed with him but he beats the alternative. Sigh. Here's Bill Maher at his best:
I'm cleaning everything and it's all coming together. If you walked into my house, y'all would see disaster but it's all coming together. (And if y'all want to come by and help -- laugh hysterically -- you are soooooooooo welcome) LOL
I'm also trying to get through all health insurance stuff and gird my loins for the forthcoming craziness attached to that -- if I ever get done translating it. (I am not fluent in bureaucratese.)
Hope y'all are having a great day. Hopefully, I'll be around to visit later!!!!
