Oh my word...what a wild night last night. I thought my house was going to be lifted up only to come down in the Land of Oz. I think between 1:30am and 3am was the worst. This house was "shuddering"...that's the only word I can think of to describe the feeling. The rain and wind started around 5pm...when I went out to dinner with my brother and sister in law it was getting ugly (which by the way, dinner was very good and enjoyable with two of my favorite people). When it was bedtime I took my purse, car keys and other important items back to my bedroom in the back of the house. I also put the baby gate across the hall so Gabi could not get out into the front of the house. I was again worried about that big tree in the front yard. The wind woke me up about 1:30am and I finally just turned the light on and read for awhile. This morning........all is calm and there's lots of "Heavenly" sunshine streaming thru the windows. I may take advantage of the sun and go out an prune my roses today. It's cold out there but I can bundle up.
I mentioned the other day in an entry that my friend and former co-worker, Pat, had emailed me some pictures from 1968-69 when we worked at the Oldsmobile dealership. There was one picture of me, but all those many years ago, I had taken the picture and tore my image out (it must have been awful) Pat claims she will find the negative. But there was one picture I wanted to share...something you don't see anymore. It's the cash register I used as parts and service cashier. I wonder what ever happed to it.....it truly would be an antique today.
Here's my weather email from KOMO TV....it looks as if tonight another storm will hit this area. And snow on Wednesday ? NO... I have to go to work Wednesday morning !
|" Dear Linda,|
Have a wonderful Saturday...and Kathy down in southern California, I hope it's warmed up a little for you down there.
I've had no birthday cake yet...I think I'll go buy one of those little squares of cake you can get for $1.99 at Safeway bakery. Until next time.........Linda
