To each his own. To me my own.

The Big One

How hot was it this weekend? It was so hot that the Jehovah’s Witnesses decided to make phone calls in lieu of visits. (Hey, it’s a joke. Be easy on me, I’ve got at least two for every religion.) In all seriousness, this heat has been one for the records. Unless I’m near a large body of water you won’t find me outside in it.

I received a super-sweet nomination for a ‘Very Inspiring Blogger Award’ from sued51too. Although I don’t really ‘do’ the awards, I’d definitely like to express my humble appreciation for this and urge you to visit her blog She writes very inspiring and meaningful posts which I enjoy immensely and I think you will too.

Today is a monumental day for my sweet girl sidekick automobile. My little baby car will turn over to 100,000 miles today on the ride home from work. Know that I WILL be pulling over at 99,999. It’s just something I’ve gotta do.

No, it doesn’t take much to entertain the old Bon… not much at all. I think I’ve mentioned before that I have a personal ummm, bond with my car. Those who know me understand, and I’ll leave it at that.

  3. I always miss the 100,000-mile moment. Every time. I get in the car, see it’s going to happen on that car trip, and then I look down and I’ve missed it! Maybe when my car hits 200,000; I’m half way there.

    • I usually miss it too, Thoughtsy. I’ve made so much over it I swore I’d see it this time!

  4. Congrats on the award! My car has done embarrassingly low mileage as I don’t use it much 🙂

    • Thanks Victoria! And low mileage is a good thing. 🙂

  6. Robo calls from religions? Oh my Lord. I have never missed a vote since 1972 and elections all levels in Miami and I get a dozen a day sometimes. I also resubscribed to do not call thing again and now I get tellermarket calls all the time.

    • The telemarketing calls are the absolute worst aren’t they? My Dad has a ball on the phone with his political calls, I’m gonna have to practice that one. He gets harmlessly hilarious. 🙂

  7. Woo-hoo! I myself did a happy dance when my car hit 200,00 miles. Mostly for the fact that it hadn’t exploded and I was still among the living. It’s good to have a personal bond with your car, although I’d gotten completely co-dependent. When it was up, so was I and when it was down, me too.

    • Yay for 200K! A few of my prior clunkers have made it there and I hope this one does too – can’t stand the thought of another monthly payment. And, that additional 5% grocery/food hike comes first! 🙂

  8. 100,000 miles. WOW! Congratulations to you both Bon 🙂
