The spring purge:
1) Dropped off some used oil for recycling
2) Dropped off some cardboard for recycling
3) Went to the dump to get rid of some garbage

A couple of days ago, Slynki took me up to Lake County to have a b-day lunch with my mom - on St. Patty's Day. On the trip back, at her insistence, we took a little detour down Sweetwater Springs Rd. - and captured these shots:

Arghh...I started the day off on a band note.


You must be joking, right? Unless you're talking about a bunch of soldiers coming up from Camp Pendleton and forcing you off the road, I can't see how a "Marine layer" can make you catch your front bumper.



Perhaps it's the same way that guy in San Diego says his runaway Prius was really out of control...

Today I took the winter wheels/tires off and put the stocks back on... the summers were marked so they went back to the right locations..but the winters coming off got mixed up and now I have no idea which one was which ! guess I'll have to figure that out in the fall

Awesome pics, Roo!

Here, we're still dealing with snow and mud, but it is the first day of Spring, and I saw the geese flying North today, always a welcome sight.

Got back in the states, yesterday, enjoyed the drive home with newly installed Swift springs. Much better than taxi vans on islands with crazy roads. Today. Cleaned her up, errands then oil change.

Washed her for the first time this year.....now, I can see every nick in the paint (again) but can confirm that it still is, in fact, dark green.......and this week, it is exactly 7 years old.
