Hi Blossom! We go away for 8 measly (and horrifically HOT!!!!) days and Eliza has started a beautiful new thread!!! Hopefully my texting buddy and I will have another opportunity to meet again soon.

We also had a great time, and even though we go every summer, this past week was so hot~I was also surprised at how crowded he parks were. We had a wonderful visit at our beloved Lodge and decided we all need to get back there for a stay ASAP!

OK, last post from me tonight (I promise! lol), but I had to say I never even NOTICED the new name until I was reading the old thread! Can I blame it on jet lag? Oh wait...I have been home for 4 days.

Anyway, I LOVE the new thread name! Great job Granny!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Totally OT: no redeeming quality at All

For our new groupies, every once in a while I’ll post a story that has no redeeming value whatsoever except to make us chuckle. They are usually stories about life’s wackiness and rarely are related to WL. I apologize in advance.

I have a wonderful mechanic, Marc who happens to live in my development. This makes it very easy on me because I just leave the keys with him in the morning and he usually drops my car off at my house on his way home.

Yesterday, I gave my car to Marc for routine service and at lunch stopped by the shop to pick it up. Sitting in the waiting area was an attractive young lady waiting for her Black Nissan Maxima to get finished. After a few minutes another women 35ish arrived and this was the conversation.

35 year old (wife): Hi, is Alex here?

So we looked around and reply that nobody else was here except us. To which she said, Well isn’t that his Black Maxima?

Young lady (girlfriend): No, that’s my boyfriend’s car that I brought in for service
35 year old (wife) : No, that’s my husband’s car!!


Now at this point, Marc and I are wondering how much damaged is going to be done to the waiting area and Marc’s 75 yo father who works with him, looks like he just hit the jackpot at a “girls gone wild” film festival.

Marc immediately takes charge and tells the girlfriend to go out to the car and get the registration, when she leaves he turns to the wife and says I’m going to call the cops because if this is a stolen vehicle I can get in trouble for not reporting it. He simply wanted to separate the two.
After a moment girlfriend comes back with registration, insurance card and Mr. Alex’s credit card and shows it to Marc. five awkward minutes later the girlfriend declares that she is leaving with the car. She says, Alex gave me the car to use, I brought it in here and I’m going home with it. Wifey says: “Over my dead body” to which girlfriend says: “that works for me"!!
At this point the Calvary (police) arrives and after some tense moments negotiating (with ample use of phrases that rhyme with witch and more) decide that the best thing to do would be to have Mr. Alex come down and straighten this mess out.

After some time, Mr. Alex arrives and immediately figures out that life as he knew it has about to end, claims the girlfriend is actually an office worker who graciously offered to bring in his car as a favor, to which girlfriend showed her objection by wrapping her hands around Alex’s throat. Right about now Marc has figured out he probably won't get paid for this job.

The old guy (my dh) is currently working on a post entitled "101 things NOT to say to your wife" because when Marc and I got home and related the days events he said & I quote:
"See, this is why you never have your girlfriend and your wife living in the same city".

Way wrong answer dude!

Stay cool groupies

Great story eliza! Sometimes it pays to be a fly on the wall.

I'm hoping something similar happens to a certain someone and his 2 GFs. They think they're too smart to get caught.

Scary about the bank situation
Thank you tea pot and Muushka! Good news yesterday - my niece's tests showed she does not have cancer. And my BIL's surgery went well. Now we are just waiting for the pathalogy report to come back.

Things seem to be business as usual with the new bank taking over - even though the name is a little unusual and I had to look up how to pronounce it for certain. Umpqua Bank. I guess the FDIC is getting this bank closure down pat which is good for our account but sad to say.


DLI - love your new picture!!

And Eliza!! Soap Opera's have nothing on real life.

WildernessDad,
