bad gas

My car died yesterday. I think it was a case of Bad Gas. Poor thing! For humans, bad gas is unpleasant for all concerned... but for a car, it can be much more serious! Rick was out knocking on doors with another Obama volunteer yesterday afternoon, and stopped to add a few gallons to the tank. Less than three miles later, my normally very healthy Honda made some funny noises and just stopped on a little dirt side road near the Old Ranchos Church. Fortunately, we have AAA and I was able to drop my work day and rescue Rick and his canvassing partner in Rick's old truck, which I don't really love to drive, but was happy to have handy.

Today we'll find out what's wrong. I hope it's not some huge, expensive malady. Mercury is in retrograde... that always means Broken Stuff...

But today is also the official start of the World Gratitude Gathering. You can sign up and join in, and also join us here in the Group Gratitude Journal. Seems to me, in times like these, it would do us all a lot of good to keep our eye on the things we're grateful for. I know it can't hurt!

Dinner with my daughter last night.

Listening to the rain in the early morning hours during a thunderstorm.

A nice new bottle of Oregon Pinot Noir.
