many Mondays...


BS...I cannot display the page that I would like to say about Blogger and its lack of picture upload and all the other annoying thingies I so often occur here!

Well I ain't taking it back, just cause the picture finally loaded as I was typing the above. Don't change my feelings a nary bit. Now my blog! IF it will publish...Hoping no edits necessary...

Seems to me like Mondays somehow always turn out to be days that I hafta run some kinda errand. Of course today was no different, off I go on one of them and I happen to notice two things, one was SUV was nearing the Empty place as it always does before I muster up the idea of knowing that I gotta get gas! Good day for it, as gas has dropped to $2.62 a gallon here today. Sounded like a good day to filler up. The one track mind that I have, I figured I would just kill two birds with one stone and get me some gas on the way back from erranding. The second thing I noticed again is that this is the only vehicle I have ever owned with no ashtray!

Also, noting on the way down the highway that the gas station wasn't busy today either. I finished my errand & headed on back, noticed they still won't busy and pulled right in. Dumb kicked in and I noticed a little white bag on all the pumps. Dumb then proceeded on up the road, thinking that Stacey mighta got ticked off as she does sometimes and just put them bags on there for meanness. Hafta ask her next time I drop in.

On the way I listen to my gospel CD or whichever one it is playing at the time. Today it was my favorite gospel CD. I have had this SUV for 2 1/2 years and I have not found no ashtray as of yet, but I found myself today still looking for it. It was well blessed with drink holders and even a cigarette lighter. That is strange. So long time ago I had to convert a drink holder to a neat ashtray. I hate to hafta improvise, but sometimes in life, it kicks you in the butt and you just don't have a choice. In looking again for the ashtray I found two places that you can connect earphones to- located underneath a thingy and since Jerrell will not have sounds during a short trip or long trip, I found a way I can listen to my music next time we go somewhere. :)

I stop at the next gas station to filler up. I just throw a wave so I won't hafta go in and pay and then pump, just too much wasted walking for me. While I was in there paying, they had the neatest lighters, shaped like lighthouses and I just love lighthouses. Really, really neat. I got my gas, drove off and tried to fire up one and my lighter wouldn't work. A coincidence it was, but rather than back up and go in and get the lighter like a lighthouse that I really now need, I just used the one on the SUV. I sorta know now how Jerrell feels with me doing such stoopid things. I used to be bad at NOT buying something that is a good buy on a good sale and describing it in great detail to Jerrell about it and him saying, "well go back and get it"! I most always did go back to get it and it then of course would be gone! That is just me...So when I send him after me one of them lighthouse lighters, I betcha they too will be all gone. We shall see...

I hurried in, Roxy gets so excited if I am gone 10 minutes or 3 hours, makes her no difference. She jumps, sugars me good and makes me feel for the moment like a "Queen for the Moment". She did all her usuals so I rewarded her with a walk. We hardly walk, we kinda stroll and take it all in.

I came on here to check in with you good folks and now I gotta take some medicine and rest up from running the errands. Life is still fun, if I felt any better, I would be so happy!..
Until...

God Bless!

Now that I think about it, my SUV doesn't have an ashtray either. I don't smoke so it's not an issue. Now I'm gonna go see if I can find a place to plug in earphones.

Hey teresa,
I dunno about your SUV, but feel under the where the radio is and most ashtrays are, feel underneath there and feel for some little holes and there are two, one at each end on mine.
Thanks for coming.
God Bless!

I HAVE an ashdray in my car and I SMOKE, even if smokers are witch hunted by now and inspite of the fact that humans smoked since Adam and Eva and now it has become unfashionable. Maybe that's why I smoke. I started only in 1989, before I didn't smoke at all. Yeah, second puberty perhaps ...

I made sure my car has an ashtray, but the lighter doesn't work. I always have a Bic lighter in my purse, though.

Claudia, I got tickled reading your post here. I've had a few headaches myself with blogger. Don't EVEN get me started on my VBS pictures. But it's free....what can we do? LOL
Have you ever tried Photobucket.com? That's what I use. It takes a wee bit more time, BUT it ALWAYS works.
Anyway, I enjoyed reading your little spot in the blog world.
:D
