Be very quiet.  I’m in the middle of covert operations the likes of which you haven’t seen since Jack Bauer took the Chinese consulate.    I was having a fine Sunday watching the Vikings get beat and reading “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”  when I came across this section in the book “To do justice, she had, […] Read more…

The Stages of Funny Car Smells…..

Kim and Sue, Leigh Ann,  Sis …..all of you type A, clean-your-car-out-everyday types…..look away, come back and visit tomorrow…..this post is likely to offend your clean car sensibilities.   Now for the rest of you,  listen close;  I need your help. Day 1- There’s the faintest hint of a ‘funny’ smell in the car….you barely […] Read more…
