We are leaving for Little Rock Monday and will be gone for three days. Luckie will be staying at her usual doggy motel, a la veterinarian clinic. She is not fond of boarding even though the attendants seem to love her, with comments like 'she is SUCH a sweet little dog!' (You can tell how distasteful this arrangement is from her picture.)
Hmm, they should visit Luckie on Sunday [Luckie - Home Alone: Graze or Hunt? ].
Saturday my husband chose his Toyota Tacoma and we unloaded a bunch of cash at the dealership. It wasn't his exact dream truck which is harder to find since 2010s are due in September-November.
Also, Saturday we had a lovely young lady, Hannah, 14 years old, come to our house and help me dust, for a donation to her missionary trip. We surprised her with a sizable donation, which we would have given, anyway.
Hannah made it known in our church bulletin she wanted to work for travel money, so we allowed her to dust for two hours. I worked along with her. We feel if teenagers express a desire to work, we should, within reason, accommodate them. Otherwise, they may expect everything to be given them throughout life.
Hannah's work was very helpful, as I am very allergic to dust (mites). My exposure to dust induces asthma attacks, wheezing, etc. This allergy among many others poses a question I have never solved: Do you dust and induce planned asthma, etc., or do you let it lie, and have random asthma attacks, when you move something?
Saturday evening there was an impromptu air show over Bull Shoals Lake and our house. Some hobby airplane club was having a fly-in rally at Gaston's Resort. The demonstration show of Russian and Chinese planes was interesting.
The "operation aborted" seems better, but not cured. Since I use Internet Explorer to browse, too, I encountered several "OAs" on other sites as I played tag in PhotoHunt. At least one person said he got an OA as he left tntchick's PhotoHunt to my blog Saturday.
If it keeps up I'll change to FireFox. I used and loved Netscape Navigator for years and finally followed the world to Internet Explorer.
I'll have my laptop in Little Rock. The motel in which we are staying has free Wireless Internet, so I'll be a happy camper.
