4 brand new tires and a tune-up.
Truck's taken care of!

Now to start spending $ on Burning Man stuff.

I am copying this joke from a newsletter:

Painless Birth
A married couple went to the hospital to have their baby delivered. Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had invented a new machine that would transfer a portion of the mother's labor pain to the father.

He asked if they were willing to try it out. They were both very much in favor of it. The doctor set the pain transfer dial to 10% for starters, explaining that 10% was probably more pain than the father had ever experienced before.

But as the labor progressed, the husband felt fine and asked the doctor to go ahead and bump it up a notch. The doctor then adjusted the maching to 20% pain transfer. The husband was still feeling fine. The doctor checked the husband's blood pressure and was amazed at how well he was doing.

At this point they decided to try for 50%.

The husband continued to feel quite well. Since it was obviously helping out his wife considerably, the husband encouraged the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him. The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain.

She and her husband were ecstatic. When they got home, the mailman was dead on their porch.

Soup is turning more into a stew... I didn't have all the ingredients I wanted, so I added some red potatoes. So now I will have a chicken-noodle and potato stew.
Oh well, it'll still be good.

yearbook memories

Looked thru my senior year HS yearbook.
There's a girl who works with me who went to the same HS as I did, just 2 years behind me. Finally found her picture (I've been telling her that since we were both in x-ray tech school).

Just remembered something when replying to Topazgrrl about my soup...
I need to make my famous salsa!
I make really good salsa... I really do!

Spent all that money on my truck today, now I have a huge crack in my windshield and one of my headlights has burned out.

Guess I'll get a new light tomorrow...

Have to watch the crack and make sure it doesn't get bigger.

Oh yeah, my rear-view mirror fell off on Saturday. I have the glue to put it back on, but I'm thinking that if the crack gets bigger, might as well get a new windshield with a new rear-view mirror!

Truck will be 7 years old this August... Doesn't feel like I've had it that long. And it runs great! It's always in for its services on time, so it should last quite a long time.
