It's hard to fix a clock with a cat trying to supervise.
In other repair work news, vehicle #1 has been in the shop for several days. Is this the busy season for car repairs? They might be able to get to it by Saturday. Early estimate, $795. Especially ouchy when there's still one broken-down truck to go.
"Still better than car payments every month," is the mantra I keep repeating.
When looking for pictures of the furniture last week (still for sale, by the way), I came across this picture of myself taken about 20 years ago.
I need some major restoration as well.
For people who've known me only in the past 10 years or so, it will be a shock to discover that I was ever this skinny. I can hardly believe it myself.
Between then and now I've quit smoking. Several times. I can't recall what year it was the first time I quit, but it was during the month of February. I remember that because I ate an entire box of the just-arrived Girl Scout cookies that first smokeless day. It's been all downhill from there.
Although I doubt I'll ever be this skinny again, I could definitely be in much better shape. I need to get to work on that. I'd be embarrassed to post a present-day picture of myself because I've gained SO much weight.
By the way, the cat in the second picture was Chester, a.k.a. the best cat ever.
