Bodies can barely move
thanks to the food but fingers can fly long enough to say hi, this day after Christmas! Marilyn (caarianna) and I had a wonderful Christmas but it was shadowed by the fact that her car broke down on Christmas Eve Day! Fortunately, she was just down the street from me, so I was able to get there and take her to the garage the good old Auto Club took it. Unfortunately, Boxing Day brought her bad news so everyone needs to cross their fingers that the repairs are covered by her warranty - otherwise - I'll leave it at the fact her New Year won't be so great by any means. So please, lots of good thoughts.

Our Christmas Eve still included our now traditional Christmas Eve dinner at the Five Crowns - and we yummmed ourselves into a coma. :) Christmas Day, in spite of not knowing what would happen with her car, was still great, though, with good food, the BBC series "Sherlock" (yes, I'm HOOKED) and then Christmas lights as I took her back to her hotel at the end of our day.

Now, the topper. Marilyn had a scooter, which she loaned out to a friend, and then to another friend who no longer needs it, so she had it trucked down here by another friend - FOR ME. *THUD*

Damn fine Christmas present, eh? I can get my own mail now, do my own laundry, zip around the building, outside, go to the rec room and play games, oh my!

Now if only her car is still under warranty....

*fingers crossed*
Off to clean-up!

Those scooters are fantastic!

Fingers crossed for the car and the warranty.

I'll be waiting for it! :)

Hope your Chrismtas was great! And you're right with blessing Marilyn - which is why the fingers crossed on her car - I suspect a chunk of change and not the good kind of change :( It seems so unfair -

Oh wow - you'll be whizzying all over the place now! I've got all sorts of things crossed that Marilyn's car's warranty is okay - she so deserves good things to come her way. *sends hugs to you both*

I do plan to whiz! :) In fact, I might whiz (or wiz, since this gift is of a wizardy nature - I'm pretty sure she's a wizard or the female equivalent) down to the office to let them know my mail box can once again be 'activated'! Man, it will be so nice to get my mail when I'm supposed to! *g*

*hugs back - and even virtual hugs feel good!* Will pass yours onto Marilyn! :)
