Back to normal….

I’ve wrestled the blog back from the hijacker.. lol…

It’s Fall 🙂 a slight chill in the air, a pot of minestrone soup simmering on the stove… I love Fall.

So, yesterday we did celebrate my birthday. After all.  It was quite a day actually. The day before, the car didn’t start. Probably just needs a new battery. Roger came over, he and Mike worked on the car. Battery was find, everything was fine, but cables needed replaced… so they did that. Then,  Mike was home yesterday and doing stuff around the house, when he decided to pull the car around and clean it out. Didn’t start. argh.

Really all it needed was a jump, and some driving around to charge the battery. And then we were going to go out to dinner at Red Lobster.

Nearly hit a train. Ok, not really, but neither one of us saw it, and when it sounded it’s horn… scared.us.to.death!!!!! Of course, it was one of those trains going thru a neighborhood at 2 mph. Pulled about 42 cars and then stopped, and starting backing up. argh again. So, we pulled out of the line of traffic and went somewhere else.

Headed out to the country, where we happened on an accident minutes after it happened. They’d already called 911 and no one was injured so we kept on our journey.

Got back into town and happened on another accident, minutes after it happened!!!! 911 was on the way, so we kept going. Went through an intersection and heard screeching brakes and squealing tires and little car sped past us after speeding through the intersection in the center lane. Good grief!!! We’ve got to get off the road before we’re killed!!!!

We do eat a delicious dinner and go home to watch the vice presidential debate. We got home without being injured.

Thanks for all the wonderful birthday greetings. I do believe in birthday weeks or months 🙂 I’ll celebrate my birthday for as long as it takes!!!

    Makes me wonder what your story may have been had you not been held up by the train in the first place…… a few minutes earlier in each case could have made a big difference to the outcome??? Life is certainly interesting!

    Love your blog!
