I had a day Friday like Kim's Mondays. http://milliesmats.blogspot.com/ I left home at 7 A.M. to go to Grand Bank for Census 2011 training. Yes, I got the job. I had a little over a quarter of a tank (which was lots for a 69 km drive) and figured I would get gas on the way back this afternoon. About 15 kms into my drive my gashand dropped down really fast. I stopped my Sportage and got out thinking my gas tank had to be leaking.... No, everything was fine there. When I got to Lamaline, which was about another 8 - 10 kms. away, I pulled into the gas station thinking they were open because there was an SUV parked close to the pump.
No such luck. So I continued on driving through Lamaline. I noticed a man walking along the left side of the road and all of a sudden a little Beagle cross ran up over the right side of the road in front of me.
I slammed on the brakes so hard I know the back of the Sportage must have come up off the pavement. Luckily the dog was unscathed, I think that I gave myself whiplash and an almost heart attack. Finally I reached Fortune and pulled into the gas station and FILLED UP my tank.
After my training session, I took a little side trip to the local thrift store and snagged this red and black houndstooth jacket
