Happy Birthday !!

Son Kevin showed up with a lovely cake with 55 candles on top of it, two big ones that say 5. Son Chris came over and gave me money and then him and girlfriend took me shopping.

Me and that dratted car.

Son Harold came over and spent about 5 hours repairing my car. I backed out of the yard, the gas pipe was rusty up by where you put gas in. I knocked rust into my gas tank!! YIKES!.

He fixed it a month ago. It immediately fouled out again.

Today He put on a new gas pipe, a gas filter, gas pump, fuel injectors, fixed spark plugs, and then had to charge the battery and air up a flat tires.

After all that we got it started and radiator fluid was pumping out in a ARC shoot shoot right out of the gasket where the thermostat is. So he put on a new thermostat and gasket too.

It runs. I drove around my block and parked it again. Was too scary to drive.

Funny old me. All that gas pumping out while he had parts hanging made my hands shake. Didn't bother him a bit. Heck it will take me a week to get over all that.

Bless his heart, Thank you Harold!! YIPPEE.

Now when I get up enough nerve and Kevin is home I will give it a trial run. If it poops out on me again Kev can come get me and old Triple A can tow the dog home to park in the yard until I am not mad at it again!! Bad Car! Bad Car!

What a day!

Now I need to hunt up enough circs to knit more on this. Love Curves of Pursuit. Best Pattern ever!!!

My youngest little lambie, planting trees.

Yes my own dearest littlest lamb out planting trees for the Gold Key Organization outing for habitat for humanity. Phi Theta Kappa, and Phi Beta Kappa, on his 4th college degree.
Man I am proud!!

From: Dumbo
Music: Frank Churchill
Lyrics: Ned Washington

Baby mine, don't you cry
Baby mine, dry your eyes
Rest your head close to my heart
Never to part, baby of mine

Little one when you play
Don't you mind what they say
Let those eyes sparkle and shine
Never a tear, baby of mine

If they knew sweet little you
They'd end up loving you too
All those same people who scold you
What they'd give just for
The right to hold you

From your head to your toes
You're not much, goodness knows
But you're so precious to me
Cute as can be, baby of mine

You can find out more about this afghan pattern if you go to this YAHOOGROUP. It is called Curves of Pursuit and I love working on it. I don't think you can find a more interesting yet more relaxing knit.
