I got my grill today.  It is really nice. My neighbor took me down to Lowe's bright and early this morning. I bought the grill that was all ready put together instead of the grill in the box. We then slid it into his van. Now I don't have to spend a day putting it together.

Now the planning of the first barbecue can begin!! I can't wait.

Until tomorrow...

I went to buy a grill today.  I found the grill I want and it is on sale for Father's Day.  I bought it and the sales guy helped me out to my car.  Only it would not fit.  No way was that box getting in my loaner car.  Back to the store we went.

My friend is going to bring me back in the morning with his van.

My old grill is going to grill heaven tomorrow morning.

I let Lucky out to play ball and I saw it.  Ew... A dead rat.  It was a big rat too.  I had to dispose of it quickly in this heat.  Oh, did I mention today it got up to 103 degrees on my thermostat on the side of my home.  It was probably more like 96 degrees in my backyard.  Still awful hot.

Until tomorrow...

Today I went looking for a grill.  I went to a couple of stores but nothing looked good or was a reasonable price.  I just want a grill that is good enough to barbecue for holidays and parties.  No bells and whistles.

I went to see a few movies today.  First I saw some shorts.  Some of them were good.  Then I went to see God's Own Country.  It was fabulous.  It has been a long time since I spent a day seeing so many movies.

It is getting hot so I went for ice cream too.

Until tomorrow...

The car place called to say it was not good news about my car.  It is a ball bearing.  They are going to order the part because my car is so old and it should be in on Monday or Tuesday.  I get to keep the Jetta until my car is fixed.

Until tomorrow...

I went to pick up my car finally.  I got in the car and drove a couple of blocks when I ran over a couple of bumps.  The noise I heard was not good.  I made a U-turn and went right back to the dealer.  I told them I hope you didn't give away my loaner car.  They drove it and it made the same noise.  They took it in the back and could not figure out what it was.  They gave me the loaner and said they would call me in the morning.

Until tomorrow...

My car is still not ready.  He said it will be ready tomorrow.  I have been moving that Jetta in and out of my garage by putting butter on it!  Ha ha.  It is a tight squeeze.  I am terrified I am going to scratch the side of the car.

What a day today was!  I woke up to the DC shooting.  Then there was the SF UPS shooting and then the Travis Military Base shooting.  What is going on today?  I checked the calendar to see if it was a full moon.  Things are just going nuts.  It is so sad, all those people involved in those shootings.  So much pain and hurt. 

I can't wait to get my car back and have a good day!

Until tomorrow...

My MRI came back and it is good news.  Nothing abnormal.  Yay!

Today I took my car in to be fixed.  Unfortunately they didn't finish it today.  They gave me a loaner car so I could get around tomorrow.  A Volkswagon Jetta.  It barely fits in my garage.

Until tomorrow...

I went for my breast MRI today.  Each six months I go for my breast MRI or my mammogram.  Today was my MRI day.  The MRI is not like a regular MRI where you lay down and go in the machine.  With a breast MRI you are on your tummy and get put in the machine.  Half way through they shoot you up with dye. 

Last time the guy forgot to give me both earplugs and the ball that calls them if there is an emergency.  It was the most unpleasant experience and hurt my ears.  Today they gave me both earplugs and the emergency ball.   It went fast.

I wore my tiara to keep me safe.  I am used to the funny looks when I wear it from the car to the office.  The tech at the MRI office remembered me since I go so often. 

I will get the results shortly.

The Warriors won the championship.  Someone is setting off cherry bombs in the neighborhood.  It is so annoying.  The dogs are going crazy.   I am happy the Warriors won again!!

Until tomorrow...

What a lazy weekend!  I finally went food shopping.  I have not gone food shopping, I mean really food shopping not just stopping by to grab something, in three weeks.  The week before I was sick.  I was out of soup, all vegetables, fruit, ice cream and pretzels.  I was in dire need of going to the store.  I stocked up.  I still have to go to Whole Foods and stock up there too.

I sat out in the backyard with Happi and had lunch.  I have been enjoying my backyard so much.

Until tomorrow...

After running errands, I got myself ready to watch the Belmont Stakes.  I sat down and ate my lunch. Then I promptly fell asleep.  I woke up as soon as the race was over.  I missed the whole thing.  My horse didn't win.

I watched Jack Reacher 2.  I heard it wasn't very good.  I disagree.  I thought it was good.  In some ways better than Jack Reacher.

Until tomorrow...
