Good morning all you Whackos out in Whackoland. Well obviously I'm awake before my usual time. Had a neighbor call us last night and apparently when Stan ran into the ditch, the car cracked this guy's culvert and that made the water run all over the street and into his driveway where it cracked the asphalt. So now we're looking at property damage from this wreck Stan had about a month ago. And he's really itching to start driving again but maybe this will make him rethink. It's always something. Well, it's a beautiful day, almost 15 degrees cooler than yesterday at this time they're saying which suits me fine. I'm supposed to go to lunch with Scottie friends tomorrow but it's way over in Canton, GA and it's supposed to be raining tomorrow. I may have to rethink that. There's really only one driver in the family these days and if I do something stupid there won't be any and we live out in the middle of nowhere. I keep looking for houses for sale closer to town and shopping but everything I see is overpriced, tiny and just not appealing at all. We can't do a townhouse because the dogs like to bark too much and they need their big backyard to run around in. It's scary when you get older and realize things just aren't going to remain the same going forward. I know we have to adjust ourselves to leaving the old homestead. It wouldn't have to happen if my kids ever helped out any but they're too busy with their own lives to worry about us. It hurts because they know I was always there for my mom and dad so they had a better example than that. Here I am grumbling and groaning on a beautiful Wednesday morning when I ought to be giving thanks for all the blessings I do have. I was able to get up out of bed on my own today, fix my breakfast and get dressed and all that stuff. That's a real blessing. Will probably make a run to Walmart in a little while. At least I know if I'm getting old I've got some friends here who understand the frustrations. Y'all have a blessed day and pay no never mind to my grumbling. I haven't even had my coffee yet.
