Re: Daily Check in Nov 11, 2019

Janet, I hope your MRI goes well. (((HUGS))) And let that silly woman pick up sticks herself if she's going to put off mowing until it snows. You don't need to hurt yourself on her behalf. Aside from being multiply skewered by the MRI tech who said she couldn't hit a vein, my MRI went well. In the i...

Re: Daily Check in Nov 11, 2019

Good morning, frugals. I was on the phone this morning with my little single mom friend trying to sort out a problem with her old car. Her neighbor finally saw the hood up on the car and came over to check things out. It turned out she had tried to take off the radiator cap while the engine was hot ...

Re: Daily Check In November 10, 2011

Good morning, frugals. I am listening to the local geezer pop radio station, which has some rather lively tunes on. :) Sunny and chilly today. Our bad weather is predicted for Tuesday.

Re: Daily Check in November 9, 2019

Quite chilly here today. There was snow in the Smoky Mountains, but it's still just cold this far south. Sorry to hear you are sick, Rinty. Beans on toast sounds fine for when you don't feel up to cooking. DH and I have done grocery shopping. The store has had a promotion in which spending at least ...

Re: All About Air

Sheila, it does cost to use air at gas stations now. My son and I both have little tire pumps that plug into the cigarette lighter or auxiliary power port in a car. They can both measure the pressure in the tire and pump it up. They aren't expensive and I figure one pays for itself in a couple of ye...

Re: Daily Check-In, Nov. 8, 2019

Church rummage sales are the best. My church back home used to put on an awesome one, but I think they let it lapse because it was days of work to get ready for it. I met my homeless buddy at the downtown library and gave him the scarf he asked for and some candy for his birthday. He was tickled abo...
