So now all should be well in truck-land (knock wood). Although I have to say I'm seriously considering taking the bus a couple of times a week now that I know the route -- with gas having reached nearly $2.20 here in Phoenix, it's going to cost me approximately $50.00 every two weeks, as opposed to the $7.50 a week that riding the bus ALL week would take, and less if I bought a bus pass. It may have been annoying in the extreme for the woman AT the transit office to think the "most direct" route was through Scottsdale, but I found better on my own, and I managed to get a lot of reading done, which I remember was one of the best things about riding the bus. As a plus, busses have air conditioning. And maybe I'll save enough money to finally fix my bike. I'm in good enough shape now that I really could ride to work and back, at least come cooler weather!
Barb says she's feeling better, but she sounds awful. I want to wrap her in a quilt and pet her.
Sideshow Collectibles still hasn't delivered her 12-inch "Spike." I need to send them an email.
