It seems like everyone has their pinto story. My hubby's ex girlfriend ended up with my Pinto when they were together before we met. LOL. I can't believe it was still running. I think Spiders are really neat.

My first car was a '64 Ford Fairlane handed down from my mother. Within a year the engine caught fire so they bought me a '69 Camaro. I traded that in for a '71 Firebird, which I had to sell when the military gave me overseas duty. DH, who I met there, had also had to sell his '71 Firebird. When I came back to US, I "inherited" my mom's Pinto - guess everyone our age has experience with the ubiquitous Pinto! emoticon

After DH & I got married, we decided to give up both of our used vehicles for a new one and it ended up being the '77 Firebird. We later bought his Corvette (used) and, in between, also had a '81 Fiat Spider convertible that we bought in, and had shipped back, from Italy. It's "tininess" compared to the Pontiac is what made DH decide he wanted the American corvette. We traded the 'vette for a 2011 Buick which he drives and sold the Firebird after I got the '11 Equinox. We've had a couple of pickups in the last 15 years but the Chevy basically totes as much stuff for us as the truck did. Sometime we need to attach the utility trailer (like for bales of pine straw).

Vegas were almost as bad as Pintos. Gremlins were horrible too. My pinto was blue. I'm not fond of too many car colors and usually either wanted blue, green, silver, gray, or black. My Mustang was red. I don't like red cars.

Ha, I just love these hair raising stories!! Fun car talk for us girls!! emoticon That's alot of cars, Mortician! And Tally, My Aunt and Uncle had 3 Pintos, one for each kid that was in college. A red one, a white one and a yellow. Wow, you see those cars everywhere back in the 70's!! Oh my, the cars that were so much a part of us! My very first car was a '67 Chevy Impala, that my Dad bought from my Aunt, and then he sold it to me. Dad always told my sister and I that when we bought cars, they better be Chevy's, because that was his favorite to work on! So I got my Impala, that was a sky blue. My sister got a Chevy Vega, and was that ever a dog!!! But my Dad got it back running like a top every time! We saved alot of mechanic bills. My next car was the beloved Firebird , not Chevy, and my sister's next car was a green Ford Mustang, not a Chevy!! But Dad was still a good mechanic on them, and nice about it too!!

The A/C in the van and prism both went out so if I get rid of the prism it will be due to that.

I almost peed my pants just reading your story. My ex was a butthole and always wanted to drive to Florida straight through in one trip. I wanted to stop at a motel. It was in the winter and he started to nod off so I had to drive all night long in a blizzard through the mountains where we were hanging off the side of cliffs in the dark. Semis were having trouble making the grade and on the downhill were flying like runaway trucks. I decided then that if we made it I would kill him. LOL Instead from then on I took a different route through Ky,Tn, Al, to Florida. No more Ky, Tn, to Ge, to Florida. I will never go that way again as long as I live. I always stop at the same motel in Cullman, Alabama.

My hubby lived on a ranch outside of Gardiner, Montana, one of the entrances to Yellowstone. There are some really hairy roads there, like the one up to Jardine. He isn't afraid of heights and he was freaked. At that time it was a hippy camp. I guess people live there now and it's a tourist attraction. He loved the area and wanted to take me back - nope, no can do.

I drove my YELLOW firebird for 34 years: 1977-2011. Biggest reason I gave it up was no A/C. I survived quite a few years in FL without it but as I got older....

The firebird did really well in snow, even ice, so long as DH was driving. It was a heavy vehicle and he had the experience.

We stopped in Yellowstone on one of our cross-country moving trips (military) and it started snowing heavily. We headed down towards Cody, I think, where we had reservations for the night. It got so bad that my leg was just shaking and "jitterbugging" all the way down the hill. When DH behind me spun out in the Corvette, I didn't have the nerve to stop or go back...just drove even slower until he pulled it together and caught up with me. After we were safely tucked into the motel, we discovered they had closed the road we had just come off of. Whew! The things we did when we were younger!

Those are definitely not cars to drive on snow or ice. LOL. I love Firebirds and always wanted one when I was young and never got one for some reason. My first hubby and I were both gear heads and had more than our share of muscle cars. My first car when I was 16 was a 65 fastback Mustang. My step dad gave it to me on my 16th birthday and I practically lived in it. My 2 best friends and I all worked for our parents and they all bought us matching Chevelles in different colors for our senior year graduation and gave them to us early so we could enjoy them. We used to park them all in a line behind each other at high school. My car was totaled when it was hit by a dump truck shortly after I graduated. My fiance, who was my future first hubby, had a Camaro he wanted to sell me but it was yellow and black and I don't like yellow. I bought a silver GTO instead from his brother and my ex got a GTO too but he totaled his drag racing. Right before we married he purchased a Chevelle SS and right after we married I bought a ..........are you ready for this?........a Pinto - lol. I was having to drive to college up to 70 miles away every day and needed something good on gas mileage. Pintos are one of the worst vehicles ever built. It barely held up until I finished college. It was a tin can by them. I then bought a 1930 Model A sedan I found in a field. It was driven there and left years ago and amazingly it started right up and was in excellent condition. We kept it for years and then he got a Corvette and I bought a new 1975 MGB. I still have the MGB in my garage. It was my favorite car I've ever owned but they are very undependable. The marriage ended and I bought a new Cougar. I got with my second hubby, had a baby, moved to the country and then, like the commercial on TV, the muscle cars stopped and the minivans started. LOL. We were hauling loads full of filthy boys around in our Dodge Caravan. We later bought a year old Prism, our son a 2 year old Ranger, and my hubby's mom bought him a new Ford 150 FX4 for a gift. We still have all of those cars and have not bought a car of any kind since. When my MIL was in her 70s she bought herself a new red Mustang like I started out with. When she died hubby and I drove it for 2 years until the estate was settled and decided at the time that our sport car days were over. So uncomfortable to get in and out of. So uncomfortable to ride in. I didn't notice that when I was 16. I don't think I'm ever going to be the gray hair old lady in the Lincoln or Cadillac nor will my hubby be either so we aren't really sure at this point where we will end up. We have 3 vehicles we will probably drive into the dust. We may just end up with the FX4 and nothing else.

Now we know why so many people go South for the winter! emoticon

Tally, you and I had about matching cars!! Mine was a 1978 Pontiac Firebird! And weren't they about the best?!!! Talk about a lot of rev! That car could take off like a shot and be speeding in no time! Mine was a gorgeous blue. I love that we can see that color come back in now.

It feels good that we've gotten off the subject of winter. Ha! Wow, today felt too hot for me, but it was also a beautiful day. The high was 89 degrees. That's warm for May in MN. I was working in the yard today, so I know I'm more tanned!

I hope everyone's been having a good day!

I have some nostalgia for snow every winter around Christmas. We've lived in both CO and PA and, to my mind, there was not much prettier than Christmas lights reflecting off of freshly fallen (or falling) snow.

In PA, I'd let DH take "my" car to work because it was the heavier (1977 Pontiac Firebird - heavy metal - over his fiberglass Corvette) and I'd walk the three blocks to my job. I'm not much for having to drive it the white stuff but it beats ice any day of the week!

I'm not cut out for cold weather. I don't like to go outside in snow and ice. I hate cold temps and hate having to bundle up. This is about all the winter I can handle.

Believe me, when I tell you for all the people from MN, who have moved out to Seattle, a lot during the 60's, when Boeing was on such a Boom! They loved the more mild weather hardly any snow! It hardly freezes in Seattle! Oh it can, but not so much like MN. When my husband and I were married in Seattle and then moved to MN and bought his grandparents farm, I thought I was going to die, with the extreme weather and temps.! I grew up without screens on the windows! There's really no bugs and here, well, you've heard of the mosquitoes, our state bird. Ha! I grew up with want, light soil and when I saw what MN had, I couldn't believe it! So dark and rich! Yes, true farm land! I'm in love with living here now, but I'll always love Seattle too! I know that if I hadn't loved my husband so much, I would've gone back to Seattle so fast! My husband really is the best, these 34 years later!! If he'd read this, he would turn many shades of red!

Oh Tally, no need to apologize! That's a lot of what I go through with my name, so I'm used to it!! I know that I will change it down the road and just really start over.

Also, for a fact, MN is worse with the extreme cold and and humidity. In the Winter, with the farm, my guys have to really bundle up or frost freeze can come so fast. If we get a lot of snow, that can get so scary with the blizzards and with still trying to feed the livestock, etc! People can stay home from their jobs, but not the farmers. We could write a book of our hard times!!

I have heard a lot of good things about Seattle and the state of Washington. It seems like the weather would be much worse in Mn than Seattle. I don't know for a fact though. I do know I would prefer Florida. LOL.

My hubby has had hummers land on him and sit before when they are very eager to eat.

Sorry, I could NOT see your signature from my post and when you are way down South in sunny FL, whether it be WI, MN, PA, ME or what....it just sounds like a COLD place! Hard to tell the difference. emoticon

Tallyfla, I think you mean that I sign from MN instead of WI, right? I was born and raised in Seattle and love it so much, so that's why I use it as my name. Yes, it is confusing so that's why I say MN in the signature area. I hope that clears it up. I have thought of changing my name completely, but my friends know me by this one. I would have to start from square one and I'm not ready for that yet.

I love to listen to owls. Sometimes we sit and listen to a bunch of them talk to each other. It's hilarious. We have eagles here too flying overheard. We also have a pileated woodpecker like Woody. They are so cool.

We used to have a lot more birds and had a couple of birdfeeders for them. We don't anymore have many because of all of our farm cats and 2 dogs. The birds didn't care for all those animals watching their every move! emoticon We sure enjoy the ones who dare to visit though! We have a couple of owls that are seen every now and then, and also, more eagles in the overall area, then we used to. emoticon Oh, and even Woody Woodpecker loves it here. He's usually pretty close, on the light pole. I can hear an owl right now hooting!!

I feed hummers and wish we had more. We live in the woods and I think people out in the open have more come to their feeders. We used to have blue birds that built every year in our bluebird house and some bird reamed the opening larger and they don't build there any more. My hubby needs to fix it.

Blocker had a great weekend.

When my hubby retires we plan on getting up at 7:30 or 8 A.M.

I took Blocker to the vet on Monday. She has an abscessed tooth and heart failure. We started treatment and she seems a little better now. She is less resistant to her syringe feedings though the antibiotic takes away her appetite. She doesn't like the medicine. We have 3 meds to give twice a day now and taking care of her and her 2 brothers is eating up over 3 hours a day now. She rests comfortably when in her cage and sleeps better, pees more, has more stools, but she gets stressed and out of breath when we get her out to take of her. We spend a lot of time keeping her calm and she seems to know we are trying to help her.

Her birthday was May 3 I think she is 11. Her condition is the same today. No change. She is pretty tough for a little girl.

Poor woman. It's one of the things I fear the most. I do not want to lose my mind.

Blocker is bloated and having trouble breathing but she ate some papaya we put in her cage. She is having some stools and is able to sleep. We are getting her heart meds and syringe food down her. If she makes it till tomorrow I will see if a local vet can take a look at her if I can find one who will look at an exotic. Our vet is 100 miles away, retired, and only comes in to do her dental surgeries plus he has not gotten back to us yet about this. I don't think anyone can help her but we want to keep her comfortable. Keep us in your prayers.

I hate agencies that do that. It's the reason that so many nurses won't due home care. We had a friend who was a quad on a ventilator and they had plenty of money to spend for nursing care but could not find people to assume the hours. No one can work indefinitely without relief. These agencies who do this need fined. I'm sure she will miss you. Maybe you can phone her sometime and check on her if you have time. It sounds like you are already working a lot and don't have much free time.

If you will miss her as a person rather than just a client, can't you stop in just to visit on occasion?

We were lucky. It was only bad for about a minute or so but that minute was wild. Even my hubby was shaken by it.

I am busy working my butt off today. I have a load of laundry in the dryer, one in the washer, and another one to do. I swept the porches/patios/walks. I cleaned the bathroom and am vacuuming the house. I spot cleaned the pet cages and need to clean their potties and baths.

An evening storm went through here and it was a wild one. The yard is a total mess again and we have just cleaned it up. We are lucky we didn't have major damage. We were without power for over 4 hours.

My lower back feels a little bit better but slow moving around today cause of yesterday.
Today I'm going to plant some acorn squash and that is all for right now.
Just took a shower and felt good but slow like I said. But later on I'll move more. I have to get the kinks out of my old body.

I ordered my South Beach Diet book last week and got it yesterday from Amazon and started to read it but didn't get as far like I would but anyway I found some South Beach diet snacks at K-Mart and Big Lots and went to Cappy's that is a place like the farmers market and I got my fruit and veggies there. And now my lower back is killing me and I can't relax like I want too.
I also woke up to early this morning and took a short nap and got dressed before we left.

It got down in the 40s here and was windy and a little chilly yesterday but the heat is returning today. I like the cooler temps and lack of humidity. I don't like cold temps though.

I got groceries yesterday. I seen to buy less and less all the time.

I think gray hair can be very attractive. I see some men and women who are rocking it.

Our grass needs mowed but my hubby hates mowing and I can't do it.

It is cool and overcast here today but I like it. I am doing laundry and don't know if I will get much else done. I didn't sleep well again. I need to sweep the floors at least and pay some bills.

I went to K-Mart and found the south beach bars and I bought 2 of them and they are good. I had to get other things for myself besides laundry soap. My daughter and granddaughter made brownies and I had a taste and they are good I wish I could eat the whole thing but they are for my family.

Right now I have pain in my right shoulder and it's from gas that I know that I have cause it hurts really bad. I had that yesterday when I was in the shower doing my hair which I dyed it. Cause I hate gray hair.

I have seen the South Beach bars somewhere but I can't think of where.

I like body wash too.

I have not seen the meals here in a long time. Most of them were not popular. I never cared for them. I think they have some new ones called Ready Meals but they are not phase one friendly.

If you like hand cream Mary Kay has it and body wash which I love.

Any way it does rain here a lot and I do live in Washington State on the west side were there is a lot but on the east side they don't get that much rain. I see the weather here and every time you turn around it rains but after the 4th of July it stops until Sept then it starts all over again. Like today it will be nice but on Friday it will start raining again.

I can't find the South Beach meals in Safeway cause I live next door to it so is there anywhere I can get some? And I have to buy the book cause like I said when I moved from Shelton to Tacoma I lost my book. So maybe K-Mart might have one and it's just across the street where I live.

It's weird but it makes my face feel abnormal. Stiff and pinched. I wear it when I have to.

Storms are on the way again. It's dark here.

I can't wear make-up either, I feel like I'm suffocating, even when I put on nail polish. I was always the odd ball

I guess to go to a Mary Kay meeting you would have to put on make up. I would be in big trouble. I have never liked to wear make up.

A friend of my hubby lives in Washington state and says it doesn't rain that much but everyone I know that lives there says it does. LOL.

Didn't get enough sleep last night I ended getting up to early so I ended up taking a small nap took my shower and tonight I have a Mary Kay meeting so I have to eat early put my face on and get dressed and leave here by 6.

It's so nice to see the sun out for a change cause I'm tired of the rain here in Washington State. That is were I live and that is why they call it the Evergreen State. To me it's to much rain.

Bad storms headed my way and will be here soon. Say a prayer for us.

He was doing really well too so this is disappointing.

Lots of storms on the way here. I hope we don't lose power.

Thanks! I've never been to a chili cook off but would love to try different kinds of chili. My first hubby's grandma made the best chili I've ever tasted but she didn't use recipes.

It will be hot here today. I have a lot to do and I'm tired but I will get it done!

sorry to hear about your Dad, hope he is doing better soon emoticon and as for the Chili cook-off, I didn't think we would get too many there, nobody put it in the papers to advertise it, they all wait for me to do it and I don't have time to do things like I used to. It's great to be President of the Auxiliary

South Beach is a great diet - it gives one a lot of options. I like rain but not storms. They scare me! We get high winds and tornadoes here a lot.

Hard to believe people didn't show up for chili.

Lots of mowing going on here too. We live in the woods to we don't need to yet.

I got a call on Friday that my 86 year old dad had fallen and broken his hip. He was at Aldis and a storm came up with 70mph winds and it blew him and his cart over in the parking lot. We went yesterday to see him. My brother was glad to see me. They put a pin in dad's leg and will decide Monday if he needs a total hip replacement. He is worried about losing his independence. He has Parkinsons. Recently some Meth addicts stole his truck out of his yard and the police finally got it back after they did $7000 worth of damage. They took property out of it too. One was on parole and was sent back to prison immediately.
