Another long weekend…

OK – this is more like it.  I do have to work tomorrow, that’s nothing out of the ordinary – I work most Friday’s.  I also have to work a full day, even though most of the staff will only … Continue reading

A lazy Sunday

Right now, I can only think of a few reasons that it really sucks to NOT have a vehicle at my disposal. It is a nice Sunday morning and I am at home.  Typically, I would be out somewhere with … Continue reading

Hmmm – what’s plan B, or is it C?

I cannot get a loan for my Jeep repair.  I can’t say that I really blame RBC either.  If I owe 18k on the Jeep now (not sure what the exact amount is) and then I add on 10k to … Continue reading
