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 http://sued51too.wordpress.com. 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.
I would write more but mny phone is ringing….LMAO….Peace, Jaz

Congrats to your award.
100,000 miles is awesome.

Thanks Cocomino! It’s the start of a new journey. 🙂

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!

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. 🙂

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. 🙂

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! 🙂

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