Hi there.....

So kind of you to stop by....I do enjoy the company.

Had to take the van in yesterday morning to get some oil put in it.  The gauge was acting funny the night before.  I'm usually pretty prompt on getting an oil change when it's time but this time I was going to wait until I took it in for the major tune-up.  Wrong.  Next Wednesday I'll take it in and leave it, get a loaner, and have the 200K tune-up done.  I'm trying to keep it going and in good shape as long as possible.  May even have to hand it down to daughter who can't afford to have all the necessary work done on hers.
Speaking of whom....she's coming up today after the baby's checkup.  We're going winter clothes shopping for the kiddos.  At the thrift stores.  Kids grow so quickly why bother with all the fancy schmancy new expensive stuff?  We have a few second-hand stores in town so we'll check those out first.
If all else fails, there's always the few department stores we have in the area. 
Daughter, in her blog, passed on a new word that won't be found in any dictionary.  I like it so will pass it on to you.....
Ineptocracy:  a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.
Y'all have a good day.

It helps to have as few drivers as possible in a vehicle. At least, that's my opinion.

I couldn't agree more with the idea of buying kids clothes at the second hand store! I wore hand-me-downs a lot growing up and it didn't hurt me one bit!

Kids do grow like weeds, without a doubt! Have a great day!

Hope all is well with you. Glad you stopped by. We were quite clothes successful.
