The car is still running rough, but it got me around and home. After my appointment with the doctor I went to a local town about half an hour away to the rock shop, it was so interesting and they had so much stuff I would have loved to get right then....I ended up with a small unbroken geode, I made it home though I was quite sleepy, the only thing that kept me awake was I had to deposit some of that lupie magic elixer (see gardening). But I came home and fell asleep for awhile, then later I hammered open the geode that was absolutely filled with pretty crystals well worth the slight effort it took to get it open. It was nice to get out an about, much nicer than staying at home inside all the time and I have several pieces of pretty rock. I can't wait until the danger of frost is gone so I can go out and look for baskets of flowers.:wink2: great idea to get out occasionally!
