Burning the Midnight Oil

Graded until a bit after 10, so brain is too active to let me sleep.

Took Lady Croft in to fix her startup issues, and fix the rear wiper. They also found a balljoint issue. Who knew replacing all sparkplugs and wires, and replacing a balljoint, would come to roughly the same as fixing the rear wiper. So I politely declined their nearly $800 services and just had them do the plugs and wires. Next paycheck I'll do the balljoint. Tires before the snow flies. And then I must get the wiper fixed sinnce the snow sticks there so badly.

sigh All this, plus the fuel bill, means sticking pretty close to home for the foreseeable future, and probably a pretty sparse Christmas. But others have it far worse than I.

Okay. Terra Nova is doing an impersonation of Hitchcock's The Birds. Where's Rod Taylor when you need him?

I have an odd feeling that everyone's Christmas is going to be sparse. Frugal practicality rules right now. I'm thinking of getting all warm sox.
