Cost of the War in Iraq
WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.
I got da Sheetz and some Poppies and Peonies too!
Bizarrely, it doesn't say the date above my new entry box. Hmmm. how consternating.
I did manage to get all the plywood cut and bought at the hardware store. Now I will have to find time (AFTER the Far North book is handed in) to sand it, and paint it before assembling. I am quite excited.
I didn't find any used 20" wheels that I could use. One guy had back wheels but they were too wide to fit into the space in the cart. He did give me two twelve inch wheels from a kid's scooter, and so I actually DID use the cart... I pulled it behind my bike (yay!) and also pulled it to the hardware store, and used it to pull the wood home. If I step into the U-shaped garden cart handle, i can just buckle my belt around it, and walk hands free. yay! That was the idea. It works very well. But 12" wheels are too short when it is hooked to the bike, as it slants backwards and the bottom is very close to the ground.
Other than that there really IS no news.
Go read SquirrelX's entry today. I loved it all, but I am sending you there to read about what she has to say about Uncle Babe's junk in his house. I can relate. This is how I feel about "stuff" ... that it reveals who the person was. Her relating of his "junk" is fantastic.
Also from her entry, here is a link to "Sheetz: The Place for Food". Is it only me, but does it sound like what you'd say you have when you've eaten something disagreeable that runs straight through you and makes you reach for the toilet paper every ten minutes after a quick panicked run? "Oh, woe is me, I have the sheetz!!!". I think that is a REALLY BAD name for "The Place for Food". The image that comes to mind is not reassuring. She says their toilets are not so good either, but I have no comment on that, having never seen a "Sheetz Food Place" in my life.
Well, that is the end for now.
I wish you a beautiful weekend, and just enough rain at night to make the garden grow. (we just got a lovely rain for an hour or two. yay! I didn't have to go and water mine!)
hugs all round
My bath awaits.
And a grilled cheese in it too! (hehe, not in the water, silly, me in the bath, the grilled cheese in ME!)
2 People have left cute, callous or caring comments on the wench's wordiness!!
