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.

Return of the Pixy

You may have noticed that posting last week was light and different . . . well, that’s because we were out of town for a week in The Cornfields. We returned late Sunday night, but I still haven’t yet gotten the house in order. Monday, I basically woke up, got dressed, ate lunch, we took […]

In Which We See Our First SQ5

Picked up our car today. Five days in a loaner Q5.  Garage door opens, those sinuous LED eyes glide up and into the customer bay, valet gets out, greets the Mr., runs around to help the Mrs. into the car. He’s always so polite you really feel like tipping the boy. Feels so good to […]

Wandering Vehicular Eye

Currently being divebombed by a mad manic ladybug who has resided in the office light for two days now. Phone call this morning, the fuel line recall replacement was slated to take about two hours to complete.  Assumed it was the summons to pick the car up . . . instead, the car was taken […]

The New Jeep Cherokee

Took the S7 in for the fuel line recall.  Currently bumping around in a Q5, with the brown leather seats and the matte wood trim that I would choose.  Really like that color combo. We often discuss downsizing our vehicle.  Lower monthly payment, but also the freedom of not worrying so much about a car […]

No More 3×5′s

1.  Our useless mail woman strikes again.  Knobby was expecting a package to be delivered by the hated USPS today, went down a few hours before and attached a large post-it note with v.clear instructions that the gate was open, to drive up the driveway and deliver the package TO OUR HOUSE. Of course . […]
