Get The Red Marker and Calendars Out AGAIN !
Okay tonight I must remember to drink a mug of warm milk and pure cocoa, as I forgot again last night and was awake almost the whole dang evening. I am looking forward to my bed tonight !
To add "insult to injury" Rob just got down to work and called back home. His "Crabby Cabbie" vehicle died and would not start .... oh happy days again for us ! NOT.
Thank goodness our driver came out to cover for him while he had his friend tow it back home to Wiarton to our Mechanics, who in turn accommodated him right away. Thank goodness for good friends I say. They found out the fuel pump was done. Our usual spot didn't have one in stock, however we were fortunate enough to get a used one at a local Wreckers.
By the time I went to pick Rob up from the mechanics, go get the part, drop back to the mechanics, stop downtown on two errands, it had already been lunch time when we got back home. So much for my plans today.
The "Crabby Cabbie" vehicle was fixed and ready to roll by 1 pm. My Rob headed on back down the highway to pick it up and drop off our "backup vehicle", as it is in need of a new steering column; oh woe is me. Really how can a guy make any money when Mr. Murphy keeps throwing wrenches into his vehicles for the past 4 months. Give me a break !!! as we are in dire need of one at this point.
Owning your own Business is highly overrated.
Once Rob did leave I did manage to get the one thing that had been bugging me. The stairs and landing at the front door got scrubbed. Not that they will stay that way long with rain in the forecast and Mr. Mucky feet Bandit in and out all day long, but at least in my mind I know they were done.
I am going to be trying out a "new to me" Penne Tuna Casserole tonight if Rob ever arrives back home for Dinner. I will update about that tomorrow.
In the meantime, Get the Red Marker and Calenders Out AGAIN !!!

I am confident I have done my part in supporting our Communities for the Month of April. Jeez April is one busy Month, as you can probably tell with all those Red Marker dates circled on your Calender, right ???
Holy Moly, it is only 3 PM and I am done posting for this day. I have to get going as there is a couple Aussies requesting my attention at the moment, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
