Ok, so yesterday I mailed my taxes and the 1969 original birth certificate of my step-son Aaron, to him. Then to the carwash. I get a new car and ever since the 10th of February when I got it, it's rained, snowed, and been muddy!!! Nice to have it shiny and clean. Boy was the car wash busy... sun does that to us Oregonads.

Then to Brian's office where he installed the 'gate' to keep Dude in the back of the car...
This was how Dan at Ace helped me strap it in before Brian installed it....

It's weird to drive with this back there now, as it is like looking in the rear view mirror of a radio car and seeing the cage the prisoners are put in, in the back seat!

This should work great!

Another stop at Roe Motors where Joe Bouquet showed me a couple things about my new ride I didn't know. Thanks Joe, I'll be back!! My mud flaps are in so I made an appointment to get them put on. Then to the market and to the drug store to get some post cards to mail to President Trump on the 15th. Some of you know about that, I wrote in an email. It's to encourage him. If you are interested in this, email me and I will give you the particulars ... .

Special birthday today... my traveling pal Joan Petit-Clair. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOAN! Hope you have a super day!!!
   On our trip from NY to Nova Scotia and Bar Harbor.... and a few other stops....

Historically this date..............

There you go..... good old Chicago politician!!! How to make your daddy proud: In 2012 federal prosecutors and FBI agents in Washington, D.C. investigated Jackson for alleged financial improprieties, including possible misuse of campaign funds. Jackson resigned from Congress on November 21, 2012, citing mental and physical health problems, including bipolar disorder, clinical depression, and gastrointestinal problems. On February 8, 2013, Jackson admitted to violating federal campaign law by using campaign funds to make personal purchases. Jackson pleaded guilty on February 20, 2013 to one count of wire and mail fraud.
Later I had munched on more of that popcorn so wasn't hungry for dinner. So, chair, wine, TV.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.
