Between PF's nice story about the Honest John salesman and looking at several pages of "Today's Funny,"* I'm ready to start the day with a smile. Belly laughs are good medicine.
*especially the cat on the roomba

I've been awake since 0230, when Shrek kicked me in his sleep, I finally gave up at 0430 and crawled out of bed.

At least I THINK he was asleep...

Just got back from a job interview. Some snuggle time with the hubby and then I need to fill out some more job apps. Also need to do some dishes.

I'm heading out to Swedish Auto to pick up my new (used) car. I hope everything is working right this time.

Thanks ladies. It hasn't done its trick for two days. It behaved on the way home.

I have to figure out a name for it. Stirling says it's a girl car. Most Volvos are boy cars because they have this on the grill:



This picture was taken at the place I bought it.

Cars have to have names. You have a different relationship with a car that has a name. You notice things going wrong sooner and get them fixed. All of my cars have had names. I'm sure cars with names last longer (if they aren't in a collision).

From: Sylvia | meaning of Sylvia | name Sylvia
Sylvia \s(y)-lvia, syl-via\ as a girl's name is pronounced SIL-vee-ah. It is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Sylvia is "woods, forest". The Latin form Silvia was more popular for centuries until recently. Rhea Silvia was an ancient nature goddess, mother to the twin founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus. Shakespeare used the name Silvia for the love interest in his play "Two Gentlemen of Verona", probably intending to give the impression of a typical Italian girl though the name has come to be regarded as an English name.
