Good grief! Here I was, going down the roadway on my way to pick up more bacon and some OJ for the oldest's breakfast in the morning (we're having smoked pork chops and buttered, herbed pasta tonight..and cinnamon fried apples) and I glanced at the trip meter..say that only 22.5 miles had elapsed since the last fill up. Good. Then, I looked at the gas gauge and it said almost half empty. I quickly pushed the button to go to trip meter B and it also started 22.5 miles had elapsed. That can't BE. There is no smell of gas so it's not leaking..I filled up at $24.00 for that trip to gas up, just a few days ago. That leaves me with the unsavory thought that someone has siphoned out gas. So, I have just ordered a locking gas cap. It has to come from another town nearby so I can't pick it up till tomorrow. NO idea how they are installed onto the place where the old one is. OR how to get it off to install a new one. I have to find me a man somewhere with a few minutes of time. But that was such a disappointment. That represented 15 or so dollars theft from me. The trip meter is not malfunctioning, by the way. It registered perfectly for the time I was out driving this morning. :-(
Other than that and the impending visit this evening, all is the same. Cold rain with some snow showers expected. The Smokies are a few miles away and the highest part of the Smokies will get upward to 7 inches.
Miss Catt will be delighted that her favorite human beside myself of course, will be here to give her attention. Thing is, she has made an actual next out of his bed where the new comforter is..a thick one, and soft--so she has formed a deep "hole" there to lay curled in a ball, snoozing. He will be in HER bed and place. Hm.
She has 2 brand new catnip and Valerian root toys. A Plague Ratsie and a Banana. They REEK. But she loves them.
