Driven Wicked!

Tomorrow is Saturday, and the first of two challenging work weeks is almost, but not quite, over. I work alone tomorrow, and the day has real potential for being a pleasant one. Fingers crossed. One more week!

Cold again! The low temperature is predicted as -19C; already the house feels chilly. Two more really cold nights to come after tonight, and then it seems from the reports that the temperatures will rise and reach the average day and night time temperatures for the season. It is spring, but both Attila and I know that there is no such thing as spring in March where we live. April, ah yes, April, a delightful month.

The flashing lights on the car have been dealt with. Yesterday afternoon was sunny, the roads clear and dry, so I drove to the city where the car dealership took very good care of the car, and of me. Apparently the car needed a “software update”, that is all that was wrong with it. I sure hope it doesn’t need many of these software updates, they require a visit to the dealership, and a half tank of gasoline to get there and back. An expensive proposition with gasoline prices the way they are.

This afternoon the library service sent me an email to let me know the book I had on hold was available for download to the Kobo. Now I’ll have some good reading to carry me through the next week. The timing couldn’t have been better.

Here is an old commercial, remember Bobbi Pins!

This is one I didn’t see in 1965! I’m driven wicked by it!

I can remember my mother sitting cross-legged on the bed, with a book in her lap, putting her hair up in bobbi pins. How she ever slept was a mystery to me!


Wendy, we were spared bobbi pins at night, for the most part, as my Mom used strips of fabric to roll our hair for curls. However, my hair was so wild and curly that it seldom needed any assistance.


jeffrey pins were my favourite


Wow, I remember jeffrey pins!!!!! LOL Your right, jeffrey pins were the best!
