    I never said you said anything about taking the device away. I was simply telling a story.

    Well my mom fell again...broke both bones right above the left ankle and cracked her right knee cap. She just got a new brace for her knee the same day and obviously was no help. Probably surgery today or tomorrow, just waiting to hear. I'll drive out tomorrow to help my dad with his Dr appointment Monday. I wish they could just catch a damn break.

    Not only do I wish your parents to catch a break, I wish for you to catch a break as well. Hang in there.

    If you posted that on Facebook there would be at least one person (usually a lady) chime in and say that nail polish will kill them. It makes me laugh every time I hear that. Some folks just won't accept the fact that they don't burrow into your skin. By the time the itching starts the little buggers are gone.

    Now, how many times have I posted on here to spray all your clothing with permethrin? Shoes, socks, pants, shirt and even your skivvies. You don't have to have rubber boots.

    Up date on car rant...

    Fixed, a shot brake line. Though we checked no leak in driveway. The engine revving to extreme RPMs, sensors compensating for the breaks trying to assist using engine in breaking speed. The weird noise was a looses pipe vibrating.
    So our guy fixed it all . Drove it hard up and down the hill. I drove it home and it's feeling and sounding great!
    Truck shopping on back burner. It's an old car rusting, but I do not drive much and it only has 75 thousand miles on it.. ...Let the market drop before I have to replace her.

    Well my son did not run out of gas on the go fast boat, he ran out of gas on the pontoon. Not a lot to rant about it was a very courteous group, nothing stupid.

    The chihuahua is a mole hunter she sits in the yard listening and looking she did them out and kills them, kind of a bummer we don't have moles where we live now.
