Fragments

I love meeting new blog friends. My newest blogging friend is Paul from Mr. Cruiser's Notes. Paul and his lovely wife live in Canada and they love to cruise on the big ships. I met him through Empress Bee, author of muffin53 part deux. Swing by and say hi to both of them. They would both like that.

Hubby and I decided not to go on the annual bay cruise this coming fall. Our Little Bit is tired (and getting old) and it's tough on her to go such a long way. It's time to just worry about her and not add difficult traveling in her life. I swear we take better care of her than we do ourselves. As it should be.

I've said this more than once, but there's some people that you just can't like. They grate on your very last nerve. Having them move along is a gift. A treasured gift.

We are heading to the boat this afternoon to spend the weekend. We are in full boat mode as the weather is far warmer. We've had some rain (not enough), but rain has never stopped us from enjoying our boat.

On Tuesday I took my car in for service at Mercedes-Benz of Modesto. They have rebuilt their digs so I wanted to check out the showroom floor. I saw a car that had my name all over it. I won't buy it, but wow, did I ever fall in love with this remarkable car. It's a 2014 SL550.

  1. That is a beautiful car. I think it would look great with school projects, packed lunches, and baseball gear in it. Just Saying. :)

    1. It's not a practical car. It's a high performance sports car. It was beautiful though. :)

  2. You and Zane are good pawrents to not want to stress Little Bit in her senior season.

    The only things I really need from a car is dependbility to get me from point a to point b and do it with good air conditioning and a cushy tushy. Actually, I would totally love to live on an island where you could walk to the shops and to the beach and nobody drove anything anywhere. But that'll never happen so I'd better get myself to work! hahaha!

    Have a lovely day. big hugs xoxo

    1. It's all about Little Bit. As for the car? It's not practical at all and for the starting price of $111,000.00 it just doesn't make any sense. :)

  4. Hi, Paul! I had the privilege of meeting Paul and his lovely bride on a cruise, lucky me.

    You two are being such good parents to LB. Long boat trips will be there another season. Right now, it is time for LB. Scritches to your sweet baby.

    That MB totally rocks. You'd look good in it for sure.

    Big hugs times two, honey...

  9. A lovely car. Impractical for me, but i admire it all the same, and that doesn't cost a thing.

    It's good of you to consider your Little Bit this way.
