In reply to Annette in SoCal:
Annette: Congrats on seeing the rocket! What a powerful moment for you! I loved your description. Wish I'd been there with you. I still hope to see one some day.
Yup, I'll definitely be buying a used vehicle. Oh, how I'd love one of those "spiffy new Ford pickups," but the best I can hope for is "old but reliable." LOL! I'll be abundantly lucky to afford that because used car prices had already gone sky-high, and then Hurricane Ida destroyed hundreds of thousands of cars (causing demand to soar here in the east). I'll check CarFax because I at least want to avoid a car that's been wrecked or flooded. Your comment about the moderate SUVs is sound advice, but I'm rural and I have a lot of big stuff to haul--incoming and outgoing--especially when I start working on my house. Besides, I'm a Mountain Dew-swilling woman of the holler, and I want a pickup truck. LOL LOL!Good luck and safe journey to the whales this year.
In reply to Original Goldfinch and Eagle-eye:
OG: I'm so glad that you were able to shop with EE this afternoon! Woohoo! I hope you had a good time and were able to find some quality food you will enjoy. So good to see you getting out.
I am so hoping that Clare and Limpy will have the holiday of a lifetime. Nice to see Pat O and others giving good advice.
Lindy: My goodness, another victim of bug attack! Hope you feel better. On my local chatter site, people were complaining about how prolific the fleas are here this year--both wildlife fleas and domestic animal fleas. I've been wiping myself down with rubbing alcohol when I come indoors to make sure I don't bring in any fleas or ticks from the deer and other critters. I loved your photos of Bonnie.
Pat O: I hope you can endure the final leg of your journey and make it home safely. What a demanding trip you've had! I'm so sorry.
Harelady: Hope you're better, too!!!
Diane: My daughter has my old SUV but I know she really wanted a pickup. :-)
PatO: Congrats on the good B&B choice; hope you have an easy drive home.
Take care everyone.
Sunny day. Washing dried. I'm busy replenishing “lazy meals” for freezer.

Sorry to read of those of suffering with insect bites. As a life time sufferer ,with added complication of Anaphylactic shock.
I take extra care particularly gardening this time of year.
My daily routine is to spray with Herbal repellent (containing Neem ). HERE and if unfortunate to feel a nip,
apply a Click with a Clicker, HERE
Even a Tree surgeon friend , who like me swells,particularly if by Horse Fly, was sceptical, but now,has several and pockets them daily so to have ready.
N.B.The links I post are for info only,as of course you can google for others.
I also always wear THORN PROOF gardening gloves.
Sorry if sounds preachy, it is not intended,but just thought it may assist.
Take care all
