Wet Old Lady





I note to myself that I am up and gone way too early to read entries now. By the time I post my days mutterings and head off to the pool, which is an outdoor pool, none of you have posted your careful thinkings. I found myself feeling bereft yesterday morning. Bereft today too. I miss you, and I will probably greet you a day late, or even more, for the rest of the semester. Perhaps next semester too. Tuesdays, I am going from the pool directly to class in the early hours now.

If you don’t see me, I’m over there, wet, and writing notes.

And too, I need to take Grumpy to the dealer. Poor old guy is a thousand miles off his oil change and making a horrific rattling sound that creeps into my wallet seemingly at six hundred some dollars. Frankly, the truth is he should be traded in, but who is going to buy a very old truck with a nickname of Grumpy from a very wet old lady.

  1. I know how it feels to be off your blogs. It's like being off your feed. But better than being off your rocker.

  2. Good luck with Grumpy, your stories reminds me of an old truck I had at one time. We referred to it as the Behemoth.

  3. Poor Grumpy! Perhaps a name change is in order for re-sale purposes...

    I'll be here when you get back. Never fear!

  4. Is being off your blogs like being off your meds? In and out all day today running some errands that I cannot talk about...or I will have to kill you...;-)

  5. I just got an offer from my dealer who wants my old car June for a trade in. Think he is trying to sell me something I don't need?

    June is a 2005 model with 20,000 or so miles I bought a year before I retired. June has truly been driven by an old lady who hopefully will keep her license for many years. Good luck with your classes.

  6. Good luck with your truck! I still have my 2002 Hyundai Accent, which has less than 30,000 miles on it. Runs like a dream!

  7. Your exercise is far more important. I write this as I sit on my duff and type away. I need to get up and moving. Thanks for the reminder.

  8. I know just what you mean....I go looking for my favorite blogs and they are not there yet...but I still love to read them even if I am a few days late in doing so.
    I am envious of your daily workouts....I'm just too lazy to get into the groove these days.

  9. Gee, I count your reading your blog first thing in the mornings. I'll have to catch you now on a later blog read.

    Be kind to Grumpy. I suspect you'd have no problem selling Grumpy. I have read that the best time economically to trade in a car is when it can no longer be started.

  10. Once I miss a couple of days of reading my favorite blogs, I am so far behind that it takes another few days to catch up. But it is worth it. I don't think anyone minds comments on posts that are several days old.

    Good luck with your class.

  11. Ah, Maggie, it rolls so easily off your keyboard. And I have to sit and think and revise and redo and then it looks like kid writing. I'm going to come and see you and have you show me how it's done.

  12. I had a dream that I was on a cruise and I saw you! I was overcome by shyness and practiced saying "Hi Maggie - I'm Lonely Rivers!" My confidence never kicked in I never got the nerve to introduce myself. I can assure you this was all about something else in my psyche - but in this dream version, you were the star.

  13. Love Poolie's comment, really made me laugh. Funny how a change of schedule can throw you off your balance. Hello, dear friend, as you are wet and writing notes at the side of the pool.

Please, take just a moment to leave me a note. I really appreciate notes.
