Good News and Bad News…



Good News is we quit smoking on April 14!!! Now over three weeks and it has not been as bad as it could have been. The Allen Carr’s Easy Way to Stop Smoking was right on and has worked. Basically, we are happy to be non-smokers and that is kind of what it takes.   Smoking adds nothing and takes a lot away… Yippee!!!

Bad News is that on April 21st the faithful Jeep that I just praised in a recent post, that we had purchased and equipped specifically to be towed, that should have lasted forever, that only had 115,000 miles on it, DIED??? With much ado we ended up purchasing the same vehicle a 2005 Jeep Liberty with 10Kmore miles than the old one, that is gas not diesel but very much the same vehicle we lost. We choose the same vehicle so that we could reuse the tow, breaking, lights, kayak racks, etc equipment that we already had. So we stripped the old one of everything that was useful to us and donated the rest to public radio. At lease we hope it is donated, we left town on Saturday and they wouldn’t come pick up until the following Wed??? Hopefully we will not hear anything about that vehicle again if we do Hmmmmm

This made our 3 day stay turn into over 2 week stay. Anyway here we go again, a little lighter on funds but on the road none the less.
