Deep in the Heart of Texas.
The Turtle's repairs were due to be finished either yesterday or the day before. We spoke to the repair manager at Jim Bass Ford today. Now he's saying Monday or Tuesday. That means another weekend with my family, which is a good thing, but it also means there's no way we're getting back home on time, which is a bad thing. We do, after all, have to go back to work sometime, and as the days wear on, that need becomes more urgent
I also spoke to my friend Jane this morning, and she passed on a message from my next-door-neighbour which went: "Blog, woman! Blog!"
The photo at the top of the post features Tera, one of my grand-nieces, showing off her new doctor kit. She has graduated from medical school, and is now on her way to start four years of residency, specializing in emergency medicine. Her parents threw her a wonderful party at Jasper's Restaurant. I think the Fisher Price doctor kit was her favourite gift.
I think the walk helped us both to relax. Now I have to set about making some (vegan) creamy spinach enchiladas for tonight's dinner before I settle down for some serious birdwatching.
It's a rough life.
