  • Oldiesmann: I guess on Saturday I'll go out and get my stuff out of the car, but I'm now back to searching for a car

  • Oldiesmann: Heard from them this afternoon. The cost of repairs ended up being far more than they originally estimated and about $1200 more than what they say the car is worth (which is a little more than what I paid for it), so they're going to total it.
    October 16, 2019, 10:04:30 pm
  • so_P_bubble: Fingers crossed! I hope the final cost for repair will be lower than previously estimated!

  • Oldiesmann: It was towed to the local body shop on Friday so I should know more this week about whether they want to repair it

  • Oldiesmann: I believe he meant "borderline" in terms of cost of repairs vs how much they think the car is actually worth

  • so_P_bubble: Michael, that does not sound good, especially for your own security. Maybe you could sell as spare parts and find another bargain? A few months ago mine was stolen during the night and the security cams showed it fleeing toward the Palestinian territories - gone forever. I had just paid the yearly l

  • Oldiesmann: Bubble, the insurance company is having it taken to a local body shop to further inspect it. The appraiser did say it was "borderline" repairable though, despite otherwise being in good condition and having low miles (less than 76,000)

Soda Shoppe Week of April 24

Started by JoanFL, April 24, 2016, 05:05:57 am

Previous topic - Next topic


What a lovely day this has been - sunny, just a bit of a breeze and cool enough to be comfortable in jeans and a long-sleeved shirt.

There was a "neighborhood exchange" (translate: garage sale - put your stuff out in your driveway :) ).  I didn't put anything out and I didn't buy anything but I had nice visits with the three participating neighbors on my street and those from the two other streets who had come "shopping".

Later in the morning the next-door neighbor and I were both in our back yards and chatted "over the garden gate" (literally - since her back fence is just high enough to keep the dog in.

Everyone closed down by early afternoon so I was able to go to the dairy store and Walgreen's.

Dinner will be "fridge fallout" so no cooking necessary.

Wishing Everyfriend Everywhere a pleasant evening and a restful night's sleep with pleasant dreams.



"Fridge Fallout" here, too, Callie.  Sometimes that beats cooking!

Amy, right up the road a piece we have a distributor that supplies most of the candy counters in the area.  They also have catering supplies and the stuff to fill the Slushie machines at almost every quick food place in a 50 mile radius.  The nice thing is that anyone can walk in and buy candy at the same price that they sell it to dealers.  I love gummy bears and you can get a 5 lb. bag of them for right around 6 bucks.  They last me forever!  I have to be careful not to be hungry when I go there. 

I better get to w**k or I won't be ready to go.  I broke my last needle shortening a pair of white jeans that I bought last summer and never got around to shortening.  I bought needles and I want to finish that job tonight.  Also have a bit of ironing.  I thought I try watching TV and doing that.  If that doesn't work, I'll "think about that tomorrow'. 

Whatever you do with the rest of your evening, try to enjoy it.

Another day is drawing to a close. It has been a beautiful day, Thanks be to God. I was so involved in sorting out my medications I didn't get down for lunch, so went for supper again. Had a HUGE chicken breast..brought half of it home, baked potato, carrot and apple salad, big glass of tomato juice, coffee and cake. Then later went down for Hymn singing, led by our Pastor here at Rowntree. Tomorrow is Church, then early dinner and then home to just relax.

I hope you all had a very good day, and tonight a good rest. Keep well and be happy and thankful. God loves you, so sleep in peace. I send you Love, hugs, and Prayers. June
As long as we are here, let's dance.


I'm off to Dreamland also.  Good Night Everyfriend.  Sleep peacefully and wake refreshed.  God Bless and keep you!
