Ah Duh!!!

Just a warning to any other newcomers here, this is my first day here, and definately NOT my first day making pasta. Anyway, I have become so instantly addicted to this place I for the first time ever have overcooked my pasta!! I know, so what. But I never do that!!!

Ok, there's my rant. I'm done. The kids ate, that's all I can ask!

Well, we're glad you found us just in time to blame us on your over-cooked pasta!

Welcome, Suziquize!

I'm sure that we can find a DC 12 step program for you and counseling for your children if you'd like. Yep, this place IS addicting--glad that you're having fun.............

Hey Charlie. I'm up in North Branch. We lived in St. Paul most of our lives until we decided we needed wide open spaces.

Off and on over the last 4 weeks I have been having some serious troubles with my car and the auto shop has been not alot of help. Today, I drove it to the next town (40 miles away) and it started having trouble again. I got it to my brother's house and picked up our extra vehicle. To top it all off why I was driving over to the next town was because I lost my wallet over the weekend and had to make a trip to the Department of Motor Vehicles to replace my drivers license. I swear if this car does not get it's act together I am going take one of the D-6 Cats (tractor) on my timber sale dig a big hole and drop my car in it.

But the best thing is that my parents sent me flowers today to cheer me up.

I hope that everyone else's that has been having issues and problems is doing better also. Thanks for reading my venting. I hope all of you have a wonderful day tomorrow.

Aw, Sierra, I know just how you feel. Recently we had some issues with one of our cars. About a month ago I had the day from "you know where."

I drove the 30 miles to our nearest shopping town. Buck had asked me to make a purchase at an unscheduled stop. He gave me the checkbook to pay for the purchase. When I got to the store, there were no checks in the checkbook. No problem, I used our debit card.

Then, later, as I was looking at something on a store shelf, I bent down and my sunglasses hit the floor and broke. Again, no problem, I had another pair in the car.

Then, at noon, I stopped in a shady spot to enjoy my lunch sandwich. I reached for my sandwich and, when I picked up the wrapper, my watch fell off. The band had broken. No fix here, so I put my watch into my purse.

Okay, time to eat my sandwich. I took a bite and, oops, I noticed that my ham and cheese was a bit crunchy. I rolled my tongue around in my mouth and came up with a big piece of a tooth. Boo hiss!

At this point I was sure my day couldn't get worse. Just as this was happening, Buck called me on my cell to see how my day was going. Well, he got an earful. Told him it couldn't get any worse. Never say things like that.

My goal that day was to start my drive home no later than 3:45 p.m. I was soooooo happy to look at my watch when I got in the car at my last stop...it was only 3:30. Yeah! I was doin' great.

I put the key into the ignition. NOTHING. Yep, day got worse. Had to call Buck to drive the 30 miles to come and get me.

After it was all said and done, I didn't get home until almost 6 p.m.



So, I truly understand your frustration, but don't bury your car....yet!
