A New Ride

I read the newspaper in the car, waiting for Letty who was in the hair salon. Soon the glass door opened and Letty stepped out with beautiful wavy freshly sprayed hair. I slipped the key into the ignition, as Letty climbed in. I turned the key and it almost spun around in a circle. Something had broken inside...and there was no way to start the car.

Thirty minutes later, we had a new ride.




We were towed directly to the repair shop. The tow truck man dropped the car along the curb...and the repair guys had to push the car into the shop. They won't be able to look at it until tomorrow.

Letty's hair still looks pretty good after all it went through.


After I got home, I started making dinner, and the microwave quit. Nothing will bring it back to life. The big screen TV broke last week, and it still sits quietly in Mozart's office unfixed.

Well...at least life is interesting. And sometimes when old things break, new things happen. Mozart now watches his late evening TV on the smaller TV in the living room, the same room where my son's computer resides. So they're connecting more.

The microwave? My youngest will miss his microwaved burritos. Maybe we'll save money on electricity.

I suppose I could drive my husband's big blue truck to the grocery store tomorrow, but it's like parking a tank.

It's interesting that we don't really need half the things we own.

Have a nice evening. I think I'll go read a book.

Isn't that the truth! And many of us have 'back ups' that just sit there and don't get used!

My goodness...doesn't the old saying go that things like this often happen in threes? Hope things are going better now....

That's the way it seems to go. Glad you're enjoying life without some of these things!

Hmm, good thoughts - so true, we "think" we need these things but come to find that maybe we're better of without some things. But I do hope you're able to get your car fixed. That's hard to do without :)

And Letty looks so pretty! Hope you enjoyed your book. I hope to get some major reading done after my upcoming surgery. I'll be posting more on that soon along with a fun blog tour and giveaway :)

Have a great weekend!

I love the commentary -- and Letty's hair looks lovely!
I am so glad to see you are still blogging. I've become much to caught up on Facebook. Blogging is so much better :) How did I forget that?? Blessings.

At least you saw all the positives in the negatives. My husband has a 'big blue truck' too. I hate parking it at grocery stores too. I seriously need three trips around the parking lot to land the beast into a spot. Parking a TANK is right!
