The Squeaky Spark Wheel

Friday, September 06, 2013

I was just griping on one of the teams about not getting any spark wheel points except for 3 and 5. So last night when I spun for my bonus points I got 20!! and today when I logged in just after midnight, I spun for 10 points.

I guess what they say is true...the squeaky wheel gets the grease!

I had a great phone visit today with one of my oldest, dearest friends. She was on her way home from Minot, ND so the call "dropped" several times but I was working away trying to box up books to donate to the library book sale so I didn't mind. Just waited for her to call when she got back into service range. I got 6 more boxes packed and hauled to the garage and had a big box of biographies waiting for her when she showed up just in time for Jeopardy! She said, "Wow, you're losing weight. You look great." So I had to tell her all about Spark People-I've told her a few times but I think seeing was believing for her.
I loaned her a couple of my LC books since that's what I am doing and she had done South Beach with good success many years ago. I hope she will join us on this journey.

I discovered lots of wonderful books and wrote down some quotes to share on my blog when I was going through the stacks. Here is the first one.
"We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world,
and the best that we find in our travels is an honest friend."
Robert Louis Stevenson

    So great that your friend visited and it sounds like you had a wonderful time catching up. Like you, I'm packing up books to go to a library sale, but it's hard getting them to actually go in the box. LOL!
