Almost 6 Months!

Where does the time go. It has almost been 6 months since I have been on this blog. It has been an eventful almost 6 months.
First all it did was rain, so could not get done a lot of the things I wanted to. Then the leaves refused to fall off the shrubs, and I never did get to pruning them, so they will look terrible this coming spring. Unless I look really weird to my neighbors and go out there in the snow and cold with the hedge trimmers and do it now.  I am thinking seriously about doing just that. First day it is over 30 degrees. Maybe I will take the hand trimmers, maybe with no noise no one will notice me.

Second problem was, it is never good to finish off a vacation by having your vehicle towed home on a flat bed wrecker, and having the boat towed behind the wrecker. Makes an interesting site for the neighbors.

Third problem, came from second problem...nothing to drive....Vehicle ended up being fixed, but because it has kind of been one thing after another with it, and it had almost 300 thousand miles on it, plus the fact that it would have cost $1000 to fix. We found a buyer for it, and they fixed it. Which still left me with nothing to drive. I did have the craft truck, but, it was loaded to the top, could not even go grocery shopping unless I put the groceries on my lap. So For 3 months I stayed home a lot, or got rides from friends.

Things have gotten a bit better, I have "little truck" now. It is a lot smaller than my nice big Silverado Z71 off road truck.
Hopefully 2018 will be better than 2017.
