    Mae all,

    Long days figuring out what car to buy, figuring out how to get from where I am down "the hill" to Reno to look at cars... honestly, it has given me a completely new outlook on how car-centric American cities are... of course for me, along with not being able to walk far... it has been a very challenging time.

    BUT, the good news is that I found and bought a car today! Hallelujah! I believe it will be a good choice at the very least to get me back across the country from west coast to east coast. I plan on leaving by the end of September... I bought a complete warranty package at the same time ( the car cost less than what the totaled car payout was.) So I should be good shape to do "the crossing ". I will of course have the car be checked out by my excellent garage guys here in Tahoe before I set out. Thankfully, the car is so similar to the last car (This model is the VW Golf Hatchback) so everything seems pretty familiar. I like finally not having a wagon, though I miss my furry travel buddy terribly. I was a little worried about how it would feel to drive again, but I did fine on the crowded interstate and the very windy road up Mt. Rose (8,500 ft) to get back to where I am staying. So I think all is well. Tomorrow's challenge will be driving to Napa, CA to see stepdaughter... sometimes a lot of traffic on I-80, so crossing fingers... at least there are no active fires around the interstate (so far!).

    It's lovely to hear how all is going for everyone... thanks for all the news... I will greet all individually soon - today took the starch out me!
    (PS, Mick - trying to relax by reading a great book on Churchill and the blitz... what a heroic time... )
    Cheers to all -

    Hey friends!

    Quiet day around here but that’s fine. I did get half of my embroidery job done, will do the rest tomorrow most likely.
    We are supposed to be having a cold front move in overnight, I’ll believe it when I see it, haha. The hummingbirds have abandoned the area so maybe they know. The 2 feeders hanging out on my deck have bees swarming them, ugh. I’ll bring the feeders in after dark & put them away until next spring.

    PQ, sounds like things are beginning to take a turn at your place of employment. I hope it gets sorted out so you have a nice winter season.
    What sort of business did you have? It’s fun being self-employed at times. At other times you just want to go hide, haha. I can remember putting in some very long days by myself but I always got things done in time. Have a great weekend!

    Cyn., so glad you found wheels quickly. I wish you the best with your new car. Hope it makes your trip home more comfortable. We’ve owned many VWs back in the day but never had the hatchback.
    Hope your trip to Napa was easy & you have a good visit with your step-daughtger. I’m collecting some new designs for hoodies for this winter, haha. I’ll have to decide what color shirts would look bets.

    Mick, I’m jealous of your clean out, I’ll have to get started on mine too. There’s always unused stuff sitting around that someone else might like to have.
    Enjoy your walk tomorrow, go easy on the back. I’ve been spending 30 minutes at a time on the treadmill each day since the weather has been so yucky. It’s boring but it gets the blood pumping.
    I’m not 100% sure what my son is doing since I’m not paying for this degree, haha. It’s likely something to do with organizational management that he can use as he works his way up the fire dept ladder.
    Keep those digging rabbits busy, LOL

    Hello to Pauly & Det, Sam & pie.

    Have a nice night all.
