Please Don't Tell the Rental Company...

Hi all...

I am assuming that most of you have seen at least one James Bond movie.  As such, you know a good car chase.  In some of those car chases, we see our hero driving down narrow streets.  There is room for the car, but the buildings are too close to the street to open the door.

Such was my life yesterday.

A turn we needed was not well-signed.  I missed it.  We went up to where I could take a left.  I took a left.  Then I took another left.  I took a right.  I might have gone straight.  I am not entirely sure.  Jennifer is absolutely certain that there is at least one turn I should have taken.  We did finally get back on course.

Later on in the day, it happened again.  We ended up taking a left into Meah She'arim.  Jennifer pulled  a shawl up over her shoulders.  I pulled up onto the sidewalk to avoid one parked car.  Again, the street was narrow.

The good news is that I successfully eluded the forces of SPECTRE.

On an aside, we took a cab yesterday.  He drove down a hill that looked straight down to me, head-on towards a car coming up that same hill.  They missed each other.  Keren ducked for this car ride, so that the police would not see a fifth person in the vehicle.

Signing off....

Most Perplexing...

Top of the afternoon to all...

Can anyone out there in the blogosphere explain to me the following questions?

Why, pray tell, did my medium child feel the need to bring home a hubcap that he found by the side of the road?

Is this at all connected to the two nuts that he wanted to keep from redoing the sink?

And why do I have to ask these questions?

The Blog Not Written....

Hi all...

I have opinions.  I thought you should know.

It so happens that there are things I cannot write.  This is a public blog, and I need to be sensitive to my readers.  Below you will see some of the titles that have received no development whatsoever.

1.  Strollers on the Bus
2.  Primal Scream
3.  Full Contact Sports
4.  Open criticism of the President (he is my boss for at least one month a year)
5.  Open criticism of my civilian bosses

There are likely others.  Those who wish may e-mail me privately and ask for further elaboration.

"The better part of valour is discretion" (Henry IV, Part 1).

Have a great day everyone.

Coca Cola and Wings

Top of the evening all.

Our kitchen faucet was getting to its last drops.  The hose never worked correctly.  Most recently, it was becoming harder and harder to turn it off.

It has been replaced.

Gavi is a touch too young for beer and wings.  However, he helped a great deal.  I tried to have him do most of the work.  He connected the new faucet to the water.  He connected the hose.  He was the one who ascertained that no water was leaking from any new connections.

It was a coca cola and wings night with my medium monster.

I did ask him why he wanted to keep the two rather large nuts used to secure the old faucet.  He said: "I am a businessman!"  I am not sure what it means, but I will stand out of the way.

Have a good evening all.
