Happy Friday

Good Morning!

We had some storms last night, but woke up to a gorgeous, though chilly, morning.  Only 54 at 6:30, but a clear, brilliant blue sky.

I have no Friday Feline picture for you today, but y'all need to hop over to Dee's Blog and see what Giroux is doing - hysterical doesn't even begin to describe it.

But, I do have a Tyg story.  This morning around 5:45, Tyg and Mr. Fox went racing by on the patio!  I opened the door and Mr. Fox ran off.  Tyg would not come in, though he did stay on the patio.  I believe this is the same fox that we saw Tyg go out to greet the other evening.  Geeze.  It's like having a teenager who is hanging out with the wrong crowd!  You just pray they will make the right decisions.

Next up:  cars.  I'll blame Kathy B for mentioning cars (and car noises) on her blog yesterday.  I was almost home yesterday when the idle suddenly got very rough and the check engine light came on.  Remember we are down to only one car.  Luckily Fletch has a code reader for the check engine light and it turns out one of the spark plugs needs to be replaced.  The car is due for an oil change anyway, so Fletch will set an appointment for next week (hopefully early in the week).

Saturday should be a good day - I get my stitches out!!  Woo-Hoo!  I'll just go back to the urgent care place where I had the stitches put in and they open at 8 am.  After that, Fletch and I are taking off for the Toyota dealer and the Subaru dealer where we plan to test drive a few vehicles.  While in the area we will stop at Costco (hope we can make it a quick stop - HA!) for a couple of things.

We are heading over to Colin & Mailing's for a Father's Day dinner Saturday night.  Mailing's parents will be there too as well as her sister and her boyfriend.  Colin is making home-made pasta and Mailing is making meatballs and sauce.  Col is also going to grill romaine lettuce and I think he said make a chocolate mousse.  Yum!!

Sunday Dee and I are meeting up for a much needed therapy session, i.e., coffee and knitting and chatting.  I'm really looking forward to that!

Last, but not least, I'll get to do some laundry with my fixed washing machine - lol.

Wishing all the Dads out there a very Happy Father's Day.  Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Your weekend sounds wonderful, beginning with getting your stitches out! Good luck with that "quick" trip to Costco, and I'm wondering what time I should show up at Colin's for dinner? The menu sounds wonderfully delicious. Enjoy your weekend and be careful - no more falls!

  2. Your weekend sounds quite pleasant, including no cooking one night, no more stitches, and no big repair bill for the car. Hooray! You were overdue for some Good Stuff.

  3. sounds like a fantastic Father's day celebration planned. Yay for getting your stitches out, I know you thought the day would never come, but boy that day came fast for me, ha ha ha.

  4. Have a great weekend, Vera! It sounds like you've got some great things planned -- plenty of fun and plenty of family. Enjoy! XO

  5. It is cold this morning, isn't it? I love it. My poor kitties that spent the night outside were glad to get back in this morning. They woke me up at 6 scratching at the door.

  6. Sounds like a weekend full of fun! Enjoy every minute!
    (And tell Tyg to stop playing with the "bad" kids!)

  7. Glad the stitches are coming out and that your knee is healing. Enjoy your weekend.

  8. Sorry I got your car in trouble!!!! yikes! vera, I hope you have a great fathers day weekend. Ours will be quiet and wonderful. I sent my father some hungarian sausages and Ive got some honey for fireman. He loves honey. It is sold from local beekeepers here

  9. Yay for stitches out. Your knee will feel SO much better.

    Your story of Tyg and the fox made me laugh. Good luck with the car.

  10. It sounds like you're all having the weather on the east coast that we had on the west coast last weekend. Cold and rain.
    Your Tyg story made me laugh as well. So did Dee's picture of Giroux when I saw it a little while ago. These animals are quite amusing aren't they?
    I also laughed at you blaming Kathy for your car noise. :-) . Very true. I found myself listening to my car when driving yesterday too. Ha!
    Your weekend sounds lovely. Dinner with family would be wonderful. New car shopping...not so much. I always dread that. Stitches out is really good and laundry is even good. It means you are able to walk around and do laundry.

  11. Woohoo for getting those stitches out! Sounds like you have a good weekend ahead! As for Tyg -- yikes! The wrong crowd indeed!

  12. I'm glad the stitches are coming out. And it's so exciting to be shopping for a new car! Have fun at the kid's dinner party. They are treasures, aren't they. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  13. Funny thought about Tyg hanging out with the wrong crowd! lol
    Have a good weekend!

  14. Your son and finance really do spoil you! They must be lovely people.
    Hope the stitches came out well and you found a car you like. A lot of my friends have Subarus. I really love Toyotas. And I'm driving a Honda Accord that I inherited when my dad stopped driving. Can't turn away a free car!


  15. I am 48, have 3 children, 2 boys age 25 and 22 and a daughter of 11. My husband left me last year after 25 years of marriage (he turned 50). It has been the most difficult year of my life, but full of lessons about myself and what life and marriage are all about. I am passionate about marriage and i didn't give up on my husband. resides in USA, I entered online in search of advice on how i can amend my marriage while i was at work. I saw so many positive reviews and nice feed back about how a Doctor called Robinson.buckler@ yahoo. com has been wonderful with his work. I gave a shot to make contact with him via his Email and he assured me that my marriage will be peaceful and i believed in his words. 16 hours after he finished work, my husband came back home pleading and now, we are living peacefully again. Get in contact with him if you need any help.
