Thank you Tim!
Question #1. If you could live anyplace in the world, where would you go and why?
#2. How tall are you?
#3. Would you ever climb Mt. Everest if given the opportunity?
Answer #1 California, I Love living in America and I would want to live somewhere warm all year I love riding my Harley but PA sometimes has too short of a riding season…
Answer #2 5’6″ I know I am rather short…
Answer #3 No I don’t believe I would I smoke way too much and I hate cold weather and I am pretty sure it is freezing up there, One time when I visited Arizona I climed a small 1 1/4 mile hill called Squall Peak and thought I would die by the time I got to the top
I decided to go ahead and see if I can get something done on my truck I flushed the heater core but that did not do any good my brother came over to see if we could figure it out and the best we can figure it has to be a door in the heater box not opening to let the heat in the cab fron the core that is good news / bad news at least it not a major engine peoblem the bad news it I need to pull the entire heater box out from under the dash now my truck is a little Ford Ranger so there is not much room to work under the dash I hate working in small places like that but I don’t have to be in too much of a hurry as I don’t need heat now until winter but it is still an ugly job I am not looking forward to…
It turned into a real wet rainy day I still have laundry to get done and it is a good day to sit inside and watch the race and not feel guilty about spending the remainder of the day inside…
LOL Ok Abby,
This came from Britani’s Diary
I want everyone who reads this to ask me 3 questions, no more no less. Ask me anything you want. Then I want you to go to your journal, copy and paste this allowing your friends (including myself) to ask you anything.
Now that we are working again Friday Night was the Late model Outlaws it was a great race we had a lot of fun I have never seen the track so crowded they made a gang of money Friday Night that’s for sure we all bet on the races on a usual Friday it is only $1.00 per race but being this was a special ocasion we bet $2.00 on each heat race I won the first one they had 6 heat races that was the only one I won then we all put in $5.00 for the Feature race but insead of taking turns picking we put the top 9 car numbers on a hat and all took turns pulling numbers I got #1 it did not look good till the last 3 laps the entire race my guy ran 3rd then he pulled it together and passed the 2 leaders and won the damn race I won $45.00 Too cool.
We had to work for a couple hours this morning so I bought breakfast it was the least I could do then got our work done and I took off on my Heritage it was sunny and 66 degrees it was great I had to go to Mom’s to take care of some leagl business then we went on into town for lunch I took my time getting home it was a beautiful day out, Summer is for sure here I mowed today I was dreading since as soon as you start it never seems to end but it was nice even mowing I hate winter…
I was totally out of food so after the sun went down I went to Giant Eagle to stock up they had Strawberrys on sale buy one get one free so I bought 2 and a container of Strawberry Cool Whip and a container of regular they were good Strawberrys too I ate almost a full container already, I got home to start putting my stuff away and here was a package of Dutch Loaf in my bag I never bought Lunch meat but I like it so another bonus I almost went and took it back but I figure heck with it I will just keep it after all I spent $75.00 on food..
I am going to watch Space Cowboys and try to get some laundry done tomorrow is going to be cold and raining so I am going to try to get my truck fixed she is not making any heat it is not overheating so that rules out the thermostat I but in a Temp control valve I am going to try to flush out the heater Core but there are so many switches and crap under the hood it is hard to tell without a repair manual that will be the next step it flushing does not do the job..
The nice weather has been holding up quite well I am sooo happy winter is over I guess the older I get the harder winter is on me.
I was talking to a driver today and he told me about his son who got laid off and went back to school and being a displaced worker he had all kind of financial help he is going to get me the persons name to talk to at the unemployment office. I have been looking inot schooling for the last year but it just seemed so hard with my bills and full time school and it just seemed like too much but any more that is all I can think about I found a school in Pittsburgh but i dread driving into town everyday but this school I found is not all that far away from me so I am going to follow through. I first got this idea one evening when I was stressing over the job ending I was driving home at night and I realized all the houses have electricity, What better profession to be in but residential electric everybody needs it and has it so at that point I made up my mind even at my age I think it is going to be a good move and with being laid off I can collect unemployment while I am going to school…
I got my mower deck on Sunday and my tractor serviced and ready for mowing my new grass is starting to come up I have these 3 big maple trees in my front yard and when the leaves come out the grass dies, every spring I replant it and by July it begins to die by August it is all gone but by then I am sick of mowing then the leaves fall it is just a vicous cycle…
That is all that has happened since Saturday, Friday I have an appointment with the attorney to sign all the legal papers for Mom’s Power of Attorney then that will be done and out of the way..
Finally decent weather is upon us in PA Races were fun Friday night no rain and nice and warm they lasted late I did not get home till after 1:00 AM I went right to sleep becuase I knew today was going to be a good one. I did not have anybody to ride with today so the local Harley shop was having an open house from 9:00 till 3:00 to I went and fueled up and thought I would go there and hang out for a while I left here around 10:30 Damn that place was crowded they could have done a better job with the parking but after dodging people for a while I finally found a good spot there was sooo many bikes there I was hoping to take a demo ride on a VRod but way too many people in line so I passed on that and the food line was just as bad I was not all that hungry so I just wandered around outside looking at bikes I ran into a few people I knew and was invited on a couple runs weather permitting I will go one is May second going up to Tionesta that is always a fun place to go I was up there a couple times last summer….
I saw a Boss Hoss I have heard of them but never seen one it is basicly a 502 cubic inch V8 engine with a couple wheels and a seat craziest thing I have ever seen and as I walked around it I saw a nitrous bottle attached Damn the guy would have to be nuts to ride that although secretly I would love to try it out LOL way too much power there for 2 wheels I saw the guy leave of course he put on a show for us it sounded great…
After leaving there I just went for a nice long ride it made it up to 78 degrees today it felt soo good I finally made it home and did a little yard work very little it felt good just to sit out on the porch and have a cup of coffee I think maybe we have winter just so we can better appreciate when it goes away and becomes spring….
My state taxes were rejected I reversed 2 numbers on the school code so I repaired that dumb little mistake I found I could not resend it electriconly I have to print it and send in regular mail, it was no big deal till I found my printer needed ink of all times to run out of ink I just used it for a couple bills I have Stamps.com for mailing in the few bills I can’t pay on line so sometime tomorrow I need to make a trip to Staples for a new ink cartriage.
Nothing is easy…
Tomorrow sometime I have to do a little work on a plant I have in my bethroom I don’t know what it is called but it smells like Vicks Maybe it a vicks plant anyhow it is looking a little sad lack of moisture I guess I have a problem remembering to water my house plants so tomorrow I am going to replant it I also broke the plastic pot it is in and it is so big I want to make it into 3 different pots Mom needs one it will not be too long till I can take them all outside..
My Taxes are finally done I had planned on doing them yesterday but I had forgotten about a dinner I had to go to Yes I cheated Dr Atkins, But before the dinner I came home from work at 4:00 to shower and change and I got a call from the shop I just left that one on the mechanics got hurt, this guy who called me is always joking around so I did not believe him at first then he said the ambulance is on it’s way I said Ok and went back just as I was getting to the garage I saw the flashing red lights, Sure enough he did get hurt but not all that bad he cut the top of his head and it was bleeding but not all as bad as everybody acted they all over reacted I just wish I would have stayed a couple more minutes I would have just taken him to the band aid center myself he just needed 2 staples in his head he was back to work and all better today…
I started my taxes as soon as I got home today and to my dismay I owed $751.00 I was expecting only about $400.00 like last year I had enough to pay it but just barely at least payday is Friday I still have $55.00 to last till then but my bike payment is due Monday LOL it never ends I will have enough I will just have to pay my bike insurance in 2 payments instead of all at once, I had to use my big computer for all these taxes and stuff so I could print it I ususaly use my laptop out in the kitchen this old girl resisted a little bit it has been a while since I had booted it up but after some coaxing she agreed and we got it all done…
One of the guys I work with who is also getting laid off in june had an interview after work today with another company it did not turn out too well and he was a little down so I took a break and we went down the road and had a couple beers and i bought him dinner I guess just to talk to him and let him know everything will work out Ok He said he wanted to go where I was going because I don’t seem worried about it, Well,I am I just don’t show it because they all look to me for reassurance Hell I don’t have a clue as to what I am going to do I am just good at making a shitty situation look good or at least reassuring them it is not the end of the world….
Well I am beat and going to go to bed…Night Night
Well Easter is over for another year it was a pleasant day I ate too much as usual it was good to see the girls and grandkids, Dad seems to be doing good he was up with us all day and ate a good dinner it was nice to see him feeling good….
It rained all day today and the same for tomorrow but light at the end of the tunnel this weekend it is looking like sunny and warm so we know what I am going to be doing so I hope the weather idiots are correst I really need to get out and ride…
Tonight I found all my tax stuff and tomorrow night I am going to do it I hope all I have to pay again is $400.00 like last year it usually takes about 2 hours I always do it on line and of course since I pay I wait till the last minute no sense giving them their money till I have to..
It never got above 40 degrees out today so I decided to light a fire after work but of course I did not have what little wood I have left covered so it was wet fortunatly I had a little bit of dry wood inside so that was enough to get it going then I bought in a nice pile and it is now dry I will be glad when I don’t have to mess with the fire but then I will be bitching about it being too hot some people just can’t be pleased I guess…
Friday was a good day i got up at 4:30 AM that was not easy my friends showed up at 5:30 instead og 5:15 but we still got there in time and had a good breakfast and the speaker was great he is an ex Navy fighter pilot and now motivational speaker he really kept my attention which is rare at that hour of the morning, After that I went to work there was no school so not a whole lot going on I did a couple jobs I needed to get done while the buses were all sitting then I came home at 2:20 I was so tired I took a small nap and woke up with the nastiest headache it really hurt this is unusual as I don’t get too many headaches so I finally took 3 Advil and laid down again and it ended up going away. so by 5:00 I was getting ready to head out and my neighbor stopped with an estimate for the lane repair *sigh* just what I needed here where I live 4 house share a lane to get to each of our houses it is a right away actually it is an old main highway anyhow the estimate is for $3800.00 to be shares 4 ways it does need done but this is not a good time for me to lay out another $1000.00 I went ahead and signed off on it and told her I will figure out a way to pay so this month so far I need $1000.00 for the lane, $700.00 for my bike insurance, and $500.00 for uncle Sam since I live alone the government feels it needs to take a whole lot more of what little money I have = $2200.00 it never seems to end, I really don’t have to pay for the lane as it is a right a way but to keep peace with the neighbors I will pay they all needed agreements for their mortgage to keep the lane updated but I did not have to have one but I still feel obligated….
The races were good no rain so the entire race was ran it did get cold though I wore a sweatshirt, heave coat, gloves, and i took my old tatered sleeping bag with all that I was comfy I hate to be cold I got home around midnight and decided to light the fire and stay up for a couple hours to watch some TV then I was off to bed around 2:30. This morning I was up at 7:00 and just loafed around I cleaned up a bit then took a shower now I am going to to Kmart for a few supplies…
