well, the rain never came yesterday, most of it seemed to go east of us. All we got out of Gustav is a whole bunch of wind, and the temperature dropping to below 80... I'm not complaining. Anything that drops the temps is fine with me.

Got the truck inspected and oil & filters changed, and of course the mechanic came up with a whole list of things that need done - don't they always? - so I'll have to talk to my regular mechanic and see what really needs done versus what this guy said needed done to get extra money. The only reason I went to this new guy is that my regular guy doesn't do inspections and was far too busy.

Also got all my flower pots together. I've been getting a collection of large flower pots, planters and yard art for the flea market next spring. There's no one else in the market dealing in that sort of thing, so I thought I'd take some in. Of course, that means that 1) I have to store the darned things until I can sell them, and 2) Not USE them... I have a big weekness for flowerpots and planters. I hate to see them empty...

Anyway, another big day today... gonna be up to my waist in more stuff to do... later

  1. Glad you had only wind and cooler temps! Nice change, eh??? We are just starting up a little rain from hurricane Hannah tonight. Maybe 10 mile/hr winds here. Probably gone by tomorrow. Starting to feel the anxiety a little in regard to next hurricane, Ike...telling us already to get prepared and buy gas, batteries, etc already. I want out of here!!!
