Feeling Soggy

I'm beginning to feel soggy.  I've lost count of how many days of rain we've had.  There was one day where the sun peeked out for a bit but not long enough to amount to anything.  It's supposed to rain all weekend.  Guess I won't be getting any yard work done.  There's a group of us that meet at a local gallery every Friday and that will be the bright spot of the week.  These ladies are fun to be with.  There is another bright spot, though.  It's my new truck.  OMG, this thing has more bells and whistles than I could ever imagine.  I haven't bought a new vehicle in 12 years (I'm keeping my 12 year old Astrovan).  I'm going to have to sit in the truck with the manual and get acquainted with all those bells and whistles.  Of course, to me, it means all that gadgetry just means more to go wrong but one cannot buy a simple new vehicle anymore.  At any rate, it's going to have to last a long time so I'll take care of it just as I have the van.  The reason for the truck?  The ability to haul stuff from the big box store and 4-wheel drive.  I had a truck before and liked that ability, especially when we've had snow or ice storms.  I've decided that, if I can't figure something out, I'll take it to the dealership and let them show me (if they can).  I think I'll wait until tomorrow to get acquainted 'cause I don't have anything else scheduled and it may take me all day.
Y'all have a good weekend and I hope you don't get too soggy.

WOW...now I'm a little jealous! A brand new truck...how cool is that? It make take you a few days to discover everything your new vehicle can do.

I think that's a great way to spend a few hours, though. Take care with all that rain, my friend!
