I always try to start each day with a prayer and the thought that "Today is the first day of the rest of my life". I would hope that any mistakes I made yesterday, I would have learned something from, and will not make them again. You would think that after 66+ years, I would have made all the major ones, but stupidity prevails now and then, and I fall off the common sense wagon. I guess if it wasn't for mistakes we would never learn anything. The first boss I had when I got out of the Navy told me that there was a reason pencils had erasers. Just don't get in the habit of using it. And that is very true.
Called the tire shop and ordered a set of tires for the Jeep. Had a blow-out on the way to sling beer Saturday night. Then the jack cratered before I could get the spare on. I had to call a friend who brought out a floor jack to get it off the ground. Just really made my day! The tires were needing replaced. Kind of beyond the need actually. It is just the point that I would have rather picked when to get the new ones. Just a small detail like having money set aside for it. Oh well, TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF MY LIFE. Deal with it!! Anyway they didn't have 4 of the ones I needed, so they are ordered, and will be in tomorrow. The Jeep is a 1996 Gran Cherokee. It has been a good vehicle for us. Almost 200,000 miles on it. Just the usual problems and up keep that go along with a full-time 4WD vehicle. We try to keep it on good condition. It is paid for and we really don't want to be saddled with a car payment!
I hope everyone has a good week. I plan on it. Nothing will ruin my week. I have decided and proclaimed this as a good week!! Regardless of how each day goes, I plan on making the best of it!
God bless all--johnnyb
