I just can't get into blogging, thought I could but my creative side is refusing to come out. I do read my great friend Libby's everyday, they are really good, you are getting up there with the pros!!! I look forward to seeing what Libby has been up to.

I have been without a car for 2 months, the alternator went out. I finally got up the nerve to call the mechanic to see if there was anyway he could help me, like a payment plan or hold some jewelry for me. I called my roadside assistance and had the sick little car towed to Lovelady's Garage. Perry, the mechanic, would assess the situation and call me with an estimate. He told months ago the alternator bearings were going bad. The cost would be about $260.00. He also had told me way back when that when it did go, I would be stuck wherever and he was right on the money. Now back to the present, he called and said "Are you sitting down?". I said I was going to sit down. He then ventured to tell me it would be $720.00 to fix my car. Not only was the alternator gone, but the little car had a leak in the front seal and a crack in the radiator. Sounds like me at the moment!! As far as a payment or the jewelry or one of my dogs that wasn't feasible as he had been stiffed for about $10,000.00 by trying to help other so called honest people. Perry then told me he could just replace the alternator and I would have to add water everday to the radiator if I was going to drive it. I told him I would think about it and get back with him about the dilemma at hand.

This has to get better as I am at the end of my very thin rope and I weigh a lot.

I still look everyday online for a job. Thought I might get on at Sam's Club as a food demo girl but that hasn't happened yet. My friend, Wanda, just got on there and gave my info to her boss. I also had to apply online which I did 2 weeks ago. I am so thankful for a computer because that would be an awful lot of driving around town not to mention the gas. There is a silver lining though as the price of gas is down to $2.11 today in Lakeland. Today was rather warm so I turned the AC on for a little bit to get the humidity out of the house. Tomorrow should be nice again so I will turn it back off. Take that Lakeland Electric !!

Time to go let my little darlings back in. Sassy dined on Beef Stroganoff from Hamburger Helper with added real sour cream. What a spoiled pooch!! The others aren't as picky as she is. It was pretty good even if I do say so myself.

Good night for now, sleep well my friends !!! Happy dreams and may they all come true !
Love to all my family and friends...........more ramblings later.

Oh Becky, If I could send you the money - I'd do it in a heartbeat. If I could make the perfect job appear - I'd make sure you got it. If I could make everything "right with the world" -I'd be God! BUT - I'm not, so I'll do whatI can. I'll pray for you, and you can do the same for me.
DEAL?
