Well, after I started this, things went haywire…Ken got steadily worse, one thing after another and he died Feb. 8, 2015. So, things that were planned didn’t happen quite as we hoped.
Two days after Ken died, so did the Trailblazer… got it fixed but it took months. A good friend had an old truck that was registered and insured that I drove during the Trailblazer repair fiasco…finally got it back…and one day, in the middle of Rt. 18, it quit, dead. That did it.
The very next day, the Trailblazer was traded in for a brand new Toyota truck. It will cost me a fortune, but at least it won’t let me sit in the middle of the road! Today, 2 years later, it had it’s last “free service” and passed with flying colors… looks good, too, as the dealership washed it! (When you live on a dirt road, washing a truck is pretty much a wasted effort, but at least it will look good until the next rainstorm!)
House??? well, finally we are getting back to that. Brian is slowly working on it… and I’m busy with a variety of things, including spending more time doing art work. I’m a member of the Trillium Arts Guild and we meet once a month to play or talk or eat (or all 3!). I am the secretary of the local historical society, all run by volunteers, so we now have the Knit-Wits and Needlers craft group that meets every Wednesday, from 11 to 3, to do whatever… last week, we painted rocks. (Anyone else live where painted rocks appear here/there/and wherever?)…well, we figured it was a fun thing to play with.
