|ECIN|| I paid too much for it but sold it at a profit to a drunken druggy who thought it looked wonderful and the back was big enough to sleep in if he was so screwed up he couldn't drive |
Was that Ray Aunt Bug

For a great domestic White Cheddar the dairy at Washington State University's Vet School makes one--it's aged a minimum of two years--sealed in a metal can and you can age it as much more as you want. All of their cheeses are great but I'm a big fan of white Cheddar (all of the made in Vermont white Cheddar's are great too) |
I don't have an address or email addy for WSU's dairy store but you can find it on Google and I recommend it highly. The only thing close out here is Tillimuck's (sorry Mel, I spelled that wrong) white Cheddar--it's better that most but still not as good as the WSU product.

Dagnabbit--DT/CT evidently didn't like the length of the post I just lost...RATS! |
So now the short form is I learned to drive on a 1947 Ford Coupe
Took my drivers test on my mothers giant Chev station wagon.
First car--1962 VW Bug Ocean Blue
Second car 1969 VW Bug Endeavor Blue
Third car--very used yellow(ick) VW hatch back--might have been a 1975
Fourth car--1983 Toyota Tacoma
Fifth car--used 1999 Toyota Tacoma--I'm still driving it...I think I bought it in 2005
Cars 1 and 2 were stolen
Car 3 used and a desperation move--I paid too much for it but sold it at a profit to a drunken druggy who thought it looked wonderful and the back was big enough to sleep in if he was so screwed up he couldn't drive. He drove it for years--replacing things that fell off or died or burned up (that was the air filter for the engine--a cop drove up behind him as he opened the hood and put the fire out for him.
Car 4 blew an oil pump when I was on the freeway in the middle of rush hour traffic and I couldn't get over fast enough to keep the engine from turning into a lump of metal.
Car 5--well I'm still driving it.
I hate to learn to drive something new--so if it hadn't been stolen I'd probably still be driving the 1992 VW--even though it only had something like 35 HP (I've used industrial sewing machines that had more HP than that.
So I just go on driving them until someone steels them or the wheels fall off...and the vehicle that I'd really like since I'm down to one borrowed puppy is a Toyota Rav4.
lets see--that makes 5 vehicles in 58 years--not so bad...

I also really like Scray Cheese, which is a little place out in the middle of nowhere. Official address is De Pere, but it's very country. They make fresh cheese curds on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. The dill/garlic curds are to die for. Hmmm...what day is it today!?

Mmmmmm, cheese. At Nosework class on Tuesday one of my classmates brought fresh cheese curds. They still squeaked. You know they are fresh when they squeak. So delicious. (I confess I shared with Sypha!)

We had a Toyota hatchback way back when we had our first dobe--it was a stick shift with a console thingy between the two front seats. It didn't have a whole lot of room--an oversized dobe in the back, two people in the front and camping gear pretty much filled the thing, so we would stuff our sleeping bags on the floor between the front and back seats. One vacation trip (Chicago up around Lake Superior and back down through Minnesota and Wisconsin) he discovered a new trick--he could lie on his back upside-down between the front seats with his rump in the back and his chest and head up with us in front. He would brace his front feet on the ceiling of the car to stay steady. |
I remember passing a guy who was hitchhiking--he pulled his hand down awfully fast when he saw us go by. I guess from the outside it looked rather like we had two deer legs sticking up between us.
We got a bit tired of the trick very shortly, so we fixed it. We got to a park somewhere or other, stopped the car and both jumped out as fast as we could with a "Let's go, Caesar!!"
It took him a couple of minutes to manage to detangle himself from his upside-down, wedged-in position--and he didn't try that again.

Funny Story, back in 1978 Tanya was a year old & scared of thunder storms.
- she rode in back seat, dad driving & mom in the passenger bucket
- dobe got so scared during a Hail storm / size of golf balls, pelting on windows
- she jumped over the stick shift, in the front with mom
- and squeezed herself a ball, in the floor well...under Mrs 2 feet
- Beau drove home, for another 15 minutes...and glad this Dad, was behind the steering wheel
- mom was severely cramped with girl

It was good price for a new car, so we bought it instead.
But it was definitely ORANGE.

My dad bought the Nova (1966) because he wanted a small car to commute to work in (and it was small compared to the Olds) But about 10 years later it was sitting in the driveway (my brother inherited it while he was in med school) and we realized it was the biggest car out there (good old 1973-4 oil embargo--Honey, I shrunk the cars) I was driving an old Toyota Corolla that came with my husband; my parent's "family" car was a Ford Granada.
Olds 88 218 in.
Chevy Nova 189 in.
Granada 182 in.
Toyota Corolla 151 in.
None were souped up, though. Strictly old fashioned "family" cars.

- but looked fast in dark Danube blue, with Crager rims with the wide tires, + 150 psi in shocks
- I turned down street racing a '70 AAR 340Cuda and a '67 Corvette 427 tri-power
Forgot the old Datsun 210 - wife quickly learned to stick shift drive, as she had motorcycle driver-ed // learning curve, was 2 blocks.
- it was a $50 car I did sheet metal welding on, to remove the rust
- and painted it, on family farm...turned out good
- drove it to College, for 3 years...and flipped the $50 sedan for $500

|ECIN|| My favorite car was a 1970 Chevy Nova that I bought at age 18 from a neighbor who had a body shop/garage and he bought cars and souped them up then painted them. 350 with 4-barrel carb, 4 speed, crager rims with the wide tires, air shocks, painted pearl white. 8 track and Jensen 6X9 speakers, I loved that car. |

We had an F-4 go by here about 20 miles east of us one year, but thank God I didn't know about it beforehand, or while it was happening. As it was, I nearly fainted when I heard about it a few days later. It was bad enough it made the Weather Channel on their "Storm Stories" show. Nothing scares me worse than a tornado. NOTHING. So, yeah, not living in Oklahoma. It's bad enough here!
