what is indian summer. same as regular summer ‘cept it has a casino. old joke eh. we still are having hot days. and i still have to mow the yard. the grass continues to grow.
i found this old picture of my paternal grand mother, angeline battese mitchell. i never met her. she died when my dad was young. i didnt know my maternal grand mother either. she died when my mother was young. that was the reason both were sent off to boarding school.
maybe that is the reason i spend as much time as i can with my grand kids. i didnt know my grand mothers. i didnt know either of my mishos either. one died when i was young. i just wasnt around the other. i want my grand kids to know me, their misho. i want their memories of me to be fond ones. i hold them, hug them, play with them-every thing i can to make them happy and feel secure.
i put on a new wind shield wiper. now my wipers work good. the body shop i went to did me a favor by telling me to put a shorter blade on. they could have set up an appointment and charged me some bucks. i never had a problem with my wipers in the 7 years i owned my car. i am sure i changed the wipers before. dont know why it didnt work this time.
i am glad it was a simple fix. i am not a mechanic. when other guys were working on cars i didnt have one. besides i was out partying. didnt have time for cars when that happened. now i wished i had taught myself to work on cars. dont matter now with these newer models. no simple fixes on them like old rez cars. no such thing as pulling a starter and replacing it with a used $25 one. those days are gone.
i have noticed my dogs are really slowing down. i dont know how old they are. i had them a long time. i would think in dog years they gotta be at least in their 80s. they used to follow me everywhere-mushroom hunting, rabbit hunting, to the mail box, my 2 mile walks on the road or just walks in the timber. now they dont. too old. poor old dogs.
if i posted that on facebook, some would send thoughts and prayers. time is just catching up with my dogs. i always had dogs while living here the past 30 some years. probably always will. my grand son asked if we were gonna get new dogs if these ones died. i said sure. i will treat these ones good for the rest of their lives. they have been loyal to me all these years.
speaking of face book, i only got back on there over a month ago. i was off a year. i am already getting tired of it. for the same reason i got off. too much b.s. it is suppose to be about keeping up with people. maybe i will be off there again.
maybe i will head to topeekie today.
