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

dobebug 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.

dobebug 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...

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!)

Absolut is my second favorite. For me, it's either Stoli or Absolut.

melbrod 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.

My very first car was a 1969 Delta 88; bought it for $300. That thing was a frigging tank, and went through gas like there was no tomorrow. I learned to drive in a Volkswagon Beetle.

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.

Stoli!

I actually Loved the old Datsun, fun little car and good mpg.

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

We had a Chevy Nova too! Both the Olds 88 and the Nova were probably close to age as the ones you're talking about--except I was learning to drive right around '71 so they were probably fairly new then.

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.

17 y/o Beau's '65 Chevelle was a 6 cylinder 2 door post car...just the inline 6.
- 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

Hopefully it is neither. Either way take it easy on yourself.

And yes getting old sucks
No, it's carpal tunnel. Like a rusty railroad spike through the palm of my hand at night, and thumb/index finger going numb all the time. The pain in the wrist is more a shooting pain that starts in the base of my palm and runs all the way up my forearm in a thin streak. But that other thing (De Quervain whatever), I've had that for years, both hands. I was fine until I started milking Cricket by hand. She's mostly Jersey, and they have teeny weeny tiny teats, so you can't get a full-hand grip on them. I milked her mom for three years by hand with no troubles, but she had big fat sausage teats that were easy to milk. Two years of Cricket's tiny teats, though, and my hands were trashed, so that's why I have the milking machine now. It's better than it was (I was crying while milking, the pain was so bad), but it's still pretty bad. I just use my hands way too much, and for heavy type work, which they were never designed to handle. I have to do all the "woman's work" AND the "man's work" around here now (how sexist of me to say that, LOL!), so it will probably never get better. But with luck, I can keep it from getting any worse.

I supposed you could call that animal cruelty, but she was having a good time, and we laughed until we cried.

True story. Not kidding.

Come to Trucklahoma!

Ummm, no. It's bad enough, my stress level when there's a blizzard warning. You do NOT want to see me during a tornado warning. We had a tornado warning (not a watch, a WARNING) here a few years ago - Rich thought he was going to have to take me to the hospital for sedatives. We still had Zipper then, and she was terrified but didn't know why, all she knew was Mom was having some kind of breakdown and so therefore, she should be terrified, too. It was horrible.

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!

Two words: Squirt bottle. I actually have an early warning system here, so I can grab the bottle and get into the kitchen. Missy the mutt hears the cats get up on the counter or in the sink (they like to lick the water in the dishes, too) and starts growling from her place on the couch. If I'm too tired to jump up and run out there with the squirt bottle, I just tell Missy "Get 'em!" and she leaps into action, running to the kitchen and yelling at whoever is in the sink. Better her than me, some days.

Oh, I figured out how to change the mouse wheel back, too, you guys. If you push down ON the wheel until it clicks, it toggles back and forth between clicking and smooth scrolling. Duh. I figured it out by accident yesterday when I was trying to figure out how the heck it might have been changed in the first place. I guess you learn something new every day, don'tcha?
