Annual horseradish harvest

Annual horseradish harvest, a little late this year.

Yesterday I went to get my hair done. First time out of the house since January 2. I don't count letting the dog out. It was pretty exciting. And since I was so bored when the hairdresser suggested a little more blond here and there, well why not. Then she asked me if I can go 4 days after a blow dry with my hair looking okay. I almost fell out of the chair. I did not know people can go 4 days and still look okay. Sometimes the second day my hair is standing up straight even with the silk pillow cases. If I can go day 3 with dry shampoo I consider it a miracle and know it will not happen again for 6 to 12 months.

 Just came right home afterwards, the teeth are still a little uncomfortable.

I did find something new on the radio something fun to do, the Royal Oak Farmer's Market that run continuously since 1927. Who knew. One weekend soon we will be there. And I think they have a flea market on Sundays. And in the growing season May through Christmas it is also open on Fridays. Woo hoo.

Well, I still have no car. There is a back ordered wire harness, which means someone either is not shipping their service requirements or is mucking it up. I vote for mucking it up as everyplace I have ever worked take service requirements very casually and they prolly have someone walking around with a box, grabbing parts out of production containers-thereby shorting regular shipments-and shipping them off mis-counted and mis-labeled. Then you have to go to a meeting with the Service Parts Buyer who hates you because you are making his life miserable. And after he yells at you you gotta take him to lunch. And not Coney Dogs.

I went for a walk yesterday too and it is too damn cold for regular winter wear. I need to get out the heavy duty stuff next time and Sammy needs his coat. Pictures to follow.


  1. I can't help but think that the car industry in this country is fucked - but I base this solely on your experience. I have found that if you have no hair you have no problems.

    1. Yepper on the hair thing. Ford is the best and that is tenuous.
