Jeep Don’t Fail Me Now

  Well, that’s not good. Could smell antifreeze burning on the way back from my hair appointment today. Left the car to madly hiss and steam for an hour or two, then Knobby took it apart. Enough to rule out the easy fixes, anyway.  He thinks it’s the water pump. Sigh. We had heard funny […]

Leering and Photobombing

Speedy cars everywhere, and only a Hemi for me. Yesterday there was another new S8 in the parking lot of the new Fresh Market on Hendersonville Road. Sadly, old people were driving it.  Driving it very slowly. Today we parked facing an S7 in the Lowes parking lot. Sadly, they chose the boring silver (and […]

Pleased as Punch

*Yawn* Knobby has been on vacation for nearly two weeks now.  Lots of little house improvements have been made. House has been automated.  He’s made an app for our phones which can turn lights on and off, uses Sonos habits and other tricks via the Nest thermostats.  Replaced light switches but we can’t really see […]

Model Homes and Macans

~You well know my snobbery regarding “reality television”.  However, I do admit that my DVR records The Duggars. I know.  I’m a hypocrite.  What can I say — I found their lifestyle and morality refreshingly different from the likes of TrashyHousewivesInForeclosure and DancingWithTheD-List. Anyway.  This season, two of the DuggarDaughters have hooked up with guys […]

MadSnobbery

(Minion update one back.) I went to a new GP doctor today. Well, I’ve actually seen her once before . . . but this was the official “General Wellness Introductory” visit.  The first time I was desperate with a cold and for some reason they could schedule me for that visit a good month earlier […]

Suddenly, Desperately

Today I had some internet returns to make, and Knobby had a meeting, so I put Oliver in the car and off we went to the UPS Store. All of that is a bit monumental, as I v.rarely drive — if it works out that I’ll drive once a month I’d be shocked — and […]

Mad Beef

Still on my Sudafed train.  Annoying. Thought I’d take a break from the Nyquil last night, and boy, was that a mistake. —– When I saw the Amazon Fire TV announcement, I should have known not to be surprised when one showed up courtesy of UPS the next day. It is tee-tiny. It is quick […]

Hello Hemi

Ugh.  Knobby’s gone out for an appointment and I find that I’ve lost my voice. What’s the point of being alone in your house if you can’t take the opportunity to sing? —– Happy April Fool’s Day. I’m not fooling, though, when I tell you that we traded our beautiful 2013 Audi S7 yesterday.   […]

Cadillac CTS Vsport Premium

Yesterday I had a doctor’s appointment, and as usual, Knobby and Minion tagged along. I almost went by myself, but chickened out at the last minute. After the appointment, Knobby mentioned going out to test drive a Cadillac.  Cadillac is running a promotion which thanks you for test driving one of their vehicles with a […]

Imminent

Did I ever show you this? One. Is. Coming. If that doesn’t make your skirt fly up . . . then you may want to look into some re-programming.
