4/30/08 When It Rains....IT POURS!

Let's start this out with a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our niece, Brittany.

To bring you up to date on our truck problems the truck is still at the Ford dealership and we probably won't get it back until tomorrow. It needs new front wheel bearings. Let me tell you right now,,,they are not CHEAP! We're talking four figures here. I have to keep reminding myself that for the first 6.5 years we had this truck we didn't put one dime into it other than routine maintenance. Thankfully, Bob is very good about such things. So yes, we're putting money out right now on this truck and have been for the past couple of months it seems but hey, its a MACHINE and machines break down occasionally. We really can't complain, this truck has treated us well, it works hard for us when we are towing and it still looks very good thanks to Bob's care of it.

Keeping with the Rain theme, I want to introduce you to a blog I think you would benefit from reading. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will uplift your spirit, it will make you thankful and in the end you'll be glad you read it. Make sure you have tissues close by.

Bring The Rain: The Beginning of the Story...

I've put an "Our Friends" map on the blog. Look for it in the right column just under the state time/weather maps. Take a second to click on that and sign in. Let's get that map filled!

That's about it for today. We're stranded, no wheels, at the mercy of Fed-Ex to get the needed parts in for the truck so that we can be on our way.

Play on Words:

Police were called to a daycare where a 3 year old was resisting a rest.
