Thanksgiving is over....and other stuff.

Boy the food that my LW made was GREAT! Our son, my LW, me and of course our dog stuffed our selves of so much turkey and desert, we still had left overs!

Check out Lone Start Stitcher and her Ramblings blog for pics.

Other things that happened, last weekend, during a real bad day of wheeling, where (4) trucks were damaged..but there was one real scary moment, that I thought that my friend's girlfriend was seriously injured, when my truck popped out of drive and rolled backwards over her. Thank God, he was looking out for her, she did not get seriously hurt, just shaken. The only person hurt was me, when I realized my truck was rolling, I turned to stop, jump back into the truck, but my knee buckled and down I went. I went to the doctors the next morning and had an X-ray.

My friend's truck before I backed into it and the photo on the right is what happened to his front bumper and grill. :(

My rear bumper's damage...still works.

My X-ray.
Received word that part of the cartilage is worn down on one side and I have signs of arthritis.
Then I went for an MRI later in the week and last night the doctors informed me that I have torn the cartilage and I need to see a orthopedics doctor...more fun.
Going to get it scheduled tomorrow to see my options.

Voted -- finally...

I really tried to do the early voting here in Texas....but due to my traveling back and forth into Mexico it was tough. I finally had a day that I was in town and I even planned to leave early to go vote...but faith had other plans, emergencies, etc. that I had to take care of, before leaving. Hence I could not vote last Friday.
But today I made sure I went to the polling place and get there before they opened...expecting fairly heavy crowds.
I actually spent more time sitting in my truck than waiting in line and to vote! LOL.
Well we shall see how the next four years go and how well the new President guides this great country into the future.

BTW - -I will be heading back to Mexico for the day again this week - - fun!

Finished painting the shed!!! FINALLY!

Today, I have finished painting the shed!
Three colors - three odd weeks later...all done.

Another project completed....a few dozen more to do.
Next I need finish organizing the garage.
Received my replacement Lista Mobile Cabinet.

Now to fill it up!

Been debating on what car/truck to get next...

For the past year or two, I have been thinking of what car or truck I should get next.

For trucks...I been eyeing the FJ40s - especially the open top versions.

Then for cars...well...
The new BMW M3 Coupe'

Or my dream...a AC Cobra kit car.

Of course one car would have to leave....the 2000 Z3.
to make room for it in the garage.
Then Cindy's 330i would be next for replacement.
Maybe a Mini Cooper S or 135i or 335i
But that would be the year later, say 2010.
