I let my youngest daughter drive me around the block in our 2000 Chevy Cavalier. It has a manual transmission. The one pointer that she really took to heart was to give the car a bit of gas as she was letting out the clutch. The car is a 2 door and is very sporty, which kind of makes up for the lack of a radio and the manual everything. I will probably see her again when the gas tank is on E.
I recently received a replacement printer. The old one had some hardware issues. Brothers kindly sent a replacement via UPS. I put the defective printer in the box and delivered it to the UPS store in Lansing.
From there, I went to East Lansing to inspect some small trees in the Michigan Avenue median, across from Brody Complex. I hoped to find some plum trees. There had been some there about 30 years ago. Alas, all I found were Cornelian Cherry. Cornelian Cherries are actually a kind of dogwood.
|Not only do they look like luscious cherry jelly beans, they are almost exactly the same size.
It was beyond sour. It was eye-popping, teeth-crackingly sour. I put several in my pocket to share with the family (snicker).
I wrote a first draft of our generic shopping list. More details on that later.
I burned the brush pile that was pictured a few days ago. Key points on burning large brush piles are to have a hose and shovel handy, to start the fire on the leeward (downwind) side so it burns more slowly. Also, stay hydrated.
And remember the Boy Scout motto: Be prepared (marry a Girl Scout).
Now my wife is off to a sleep study.
