One of my favorite memmories of lucille was a conversation that I had with Chewy I believe it was.

The conversation was about Lucilles ability to consume gas and spit it out her back side about as fast as I can put it in. It probably started in response to recent running out of gas episode that had occured. (I have ran Lucille out of gas twice).

It went something like this

CHEWY; "You sure go through a lot of gas in Lucille. That has got to be expensive."

MY RESPONSE: Actually.. it is not that bad. I mean sure she is a V8 and she uses a lot of gas, but she also much longer than other she gets there sooner than they it really doesn't use as much gas. Have you ever thought of that?

She sat quiet in ponderance for a few minutes.

This picture is from November but I laugh at it. Mia was over and Granny pulled out the old Bristle blocks for the grankids to play with. It wasn't too much longer till Mia proudly displayed her creation...

"Look at my temply I built" she proudly proclaimed. This is concerning to me. It gives the wrong impression of what kind of mother Kris really is...she is NOT that good.


SO this is what I spent my birthday doing...driving behind this for 15 hours from WA to Utah. It seemed like a crappy thing but in reality it was a good thing for the following reasons...

1. I got the ride with Chewy the entire time
2. I didn't have to actually drive the truck that pulled her (thanks Andyroo)
3. I only paid for half of the gas (thanks Andyroo and BOBO)
4. The trailer tire went flat just an hour after dropping Lucille off (sorry Andyroo)
5. We had at least 3lbs of gummy treats to occupy the day with
6. I got to look at he sexy back of my car for 15 hours and think "H she a hot did I ever get so lucky?"

ALSO I have to mention the most wonderfully delicous steaks that my Dad treats me to every time i come to visit. Mouth watering indeed!!

I also got to thank Dad for spending a day taking the gas tank off Lucille so that we could empty all the old gas out....of which there were some spots on the driveway which fell victim to its seal eating properties. (sorry dad)

Then there is Chewy as well who helped me vaccum out Lucille and get her ready for her new home. Chewy has prooved her love to Lucille by way of vaccuming out notorious mouse housing in the trunk on more than one occasion. (thanks Chewy)

Now I have to mention Ma. Although she has been known to have some tiffs with Lucille it was when Lucille pulled out that Ma cried. Apparently they had bonded and mended wounds over the years. It took Lucille leaving for Ma to realize just what her garage will be lacking without her.

So I am happy to report that Lucille is finally home with me and I still get giddy at the sound of her engine reving. My new roommates have been very accepting of Lucille and I am grateful for that as well. It is great to have her in my arms again...but I gotta admit.... going home made me miss Washington. The beauty is astounding and it takes my breath away every time I think of how lucky I was to grow up in such a place.

Especially the picture.. it was one of those pictures I saw once and had to have it. Its one of those very few things that it so beautiful in my eyes that it could move me to tears.

Trends I Hate in the blog world

So while I am in the blogging mood can I just say there are some "all the rave" trends out there that I keep running into and it makes me SICK..I just wanna gagg.

1.) Bird nests...seriously people. These are the things that grandmas keep on their window seals only to collect massive amounts of cob webs and dust. SIck
2.) Dishes hung on the wall. If that is the best thing you have to decorate your wall...just leave it looks way better. No wall is small enough to have a dish or few as a centerpiece
3.) Little ceramic birds...again...Ceramics...they say grandma all over them..They AREN'T cute. YOu can go to ANY second hand store and see hundreds upon hundreds of ceramic trinkets. And it is for a reason...nobody likes them for long.
4.) Seashells...HATE sea shells for decoration.
5.)All these trinkets and jewelery with names on them...don't buy it.
6.) Lastly...please...if you want to show off your newest decorated room or new bedding that you just sewed...DON'T show a picture with your CAT in it. It makes me cringe and rather than see a nice new project gone perfectly...I see hairballs and the smell of a litterbox close by. Suddenly your project is not a great thing anymore.


JOJO or so should make some of these for your kids.

Wedding please

I don't really don't have any diein' need to get married...but if it means that I get to have an event like THIS...I might consider!! I just LOVE this simple beauty...okay so its really just the seating that I love.

The to do list

How easy is this...addin it to the TO DO list...along with a ladder.

These are the types of Fables i will read to my kids at night. lol

A turkey was chatting with a bull.
'I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree' sighed the turkey, 'but I haven't got the energy.'
'Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?' replied the bull. They're packed with nutrients.'
The turkey pecked at a lump of dung , and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.
The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.
Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree.
He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.

Moral of the story:
Bull Shit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there..
