New Glass

Boy I got that yard mowed yesterday in the nick of time.  Last night after I wrote the blog and went to bed, I heard that first clap of thunder!  It was promptly followed by a driving rainshower.  And then off and on all night long we had the rainies.  First with the wind, but then the wind died.

By morning it was still raining, and that sort of sunk our plans.  You see we had a broken windshield in the pickup truck.  We had nasty rock strikes last summer that were stars and not repairable with the liquid stuff.  And during the winter as it snowed and melted while we were out West, the stars began to crack across the bottom.

That wasn't too bad until I moved the truck.  And tink! It cracked across the drivers side right where I had to look.   So today was the day to get it fixed.

Now we had hoped that they could come and do it in the drive, but nooooo, we had the rain coming down, so it had to go to their garage.  That required Loyce to follow me over to the glass place and bring me back.

By mid afternoon, it was done, and by then the rains had subsided.  Melissa our DIL brought over the girls for another babysitting session and I had her run me back to the windshield shop.

From there it was on to the local Wal Mart to get the oil changed in the truck as well.  There were four ahead of me so I sat and waited.  That spent the rest of the day!  But the truck is now ready for more fun and games.  We take it down to the lake in the summer to put the jet ski back in the water, along with clean up duties.

Tonight we made pizza for our girls, and played the evening away reading books and cutting construction paper and gluing things together. The markers add creativity.

Another day in the books.  No scooter riding, bah!

  1. I picked up a small crack in our truck's windshield while down south this year. It's too bad to be repaired, but not bad enough to have to get fixed yet. Like you, I'll just have to keep an eye on it for a while. Sounds like you had a pretty busy day there!
