Good morning, Loungettes! Happy TGIF Day! The puppers and I enjoyed a lovely sleep in this ayem. Probably going to be a lazy day today, the foggy start to the day is making all three of us kind of lazy.

Keywest--it's humbling and uncomfortable to need help getting around, isn't it?

Goldie--the weather this weekend is supposed to be quite nice, and I'm hoping it really will be. I need to get outside and start cleaning up the winter mess. I hope the water situation gets fixed quickly. I certainly wouldn't have the guts to crawl under the house like that!

Karen--from 90 degrees to snow, that's a big swing in the temps and weather!

Chi--it sounds like the hybrid cars are terribly complicated!

Goldie--love the Damn Battery DOTD!

Went this morning for our 2nd booster. We both had Pzifer for the first 3, but switched to Moderna based on DH's retired PCP. Hoping for no side effects. I didn't have any besides sore arm, but DH got sick with each one and each one was worse.

Cold and damp - its been raining all morning and turning to snow this afternoon. Brought my plants in last night.

Sandy - hope your DH's car saga ends soon. It's been a real pain in the you know where for you too!!

Need to get busy cooking, baking and cleaning.

Good afternoon friends- well I was all excited to get my new dishwasher delivered and installed today. Delivered yes, but they found a plumbing issue and couldn't complete the installation. Sigh. I texted my plumber with the issue, a pic and hope he is in town and can come resolve this for me quickly. Meanwhile, the new unit is in the garage now and they will come back to finish the install and take away the old one. I guess I should feel glad I am a step closer, but it took me forever to get to even getting something and now, we pause again. I deal with this all the time with my work stuff too, so I will say I am used to it. Don't expect anything to happen fast anymore.

Going to shift gears and go drop off some donations, then hitting the movies for the first time in 2 years to see the new Downton Abbey movie. Onward and upward!

"Baby Blue" (Bob's car) is home again and running smoothly. The battery was dead because the tow truck driver never turned off the hazard flasher. As a result, all diagnostic codes were wiped out so the service dept. was unable to reproduce the Red Triangle of Death--the only code the computer would return was "low battery" (the 12V one, which was 6 yrs old). The service rep said the mechanic who worked on it was a hybrid specialist (of which there's only one in the SW suburbs, hence the delay in looking at it); and that though there's only an 8 yr warranty on the hybrid battery, it should last at least 15, maybe 20 years. The software is programmed to report after 9 years that it's dead or dying; but because the code was wiped, the hybrid battery-control module re-set its age to "new." We'll see how long that lasts. They were still unable to explain why the car suddenly lost acceleration and completely stalled out, because any code that would have been generated by the problem was wiped out by the dead battery. We'll take it in to a nearby hybrid specialist for a second opinion. And we will begin new-car-shopping at our leisure, ordering to our specs whatever we choose. Thinking of a Hyndai plug-in hybrid--best of both worlds.

I still say it's a bad throttle body or even just the throttle-body-control module. "Ruby" (my '02 Taurus SHO) did exactly the same thing in the last 6 months of her long life--I limped her into the parking lot of a nearby convent and after 5 minutes restarted the engine without further incident. The nearest Ford dealer was unable to reproduce the problem. 6 months later came the fateful night when after filling the tank, her engine roarded and accelerated uncontrollably. I had to stand on the brake pedal for the half-mile home to get her safely into my garage. Next morning at 8 am the tow-truck operator started her up and could barely muscle her safely into submission to drive her onto the flatbed. All the neighbors came out to investigate what kind of idiot would be street-racing that early on a Saturday morning. When we got to the dealership (a different one up north), the mechanics reacted as if I'd brought them a rabid pit bull. The diagnosis was a bad throttle-body, which would have required a >$2K teardown of the dash to replace; I'd had several major repairs in the past year, so it was time--and I really wanted a Fusion Hybrid (which was so new & scarce they had one of only two in stock in the Chicago area). I paid $40K for it (sticker price)...in 2011. The only wiggle room was they threw in 6 years of full warranty & prepaid service. (I paid only $30K for my fully-loaded Outback 3 yrs. later).

Last night's DsOTD at Jilly's French Cafe in Evanston: with seared foie gras, a tiny glass of Sauternes; with my bouillabaisse a glass of Pouilly-Fuissé, while Bob chose a Sancerre. They also have Chateauneuf-du-Pâpe by the glass, which I'll have next time with venison.

Tonight, not sure. We already had cappuccinos this afternoon.

Sandy - glad Bob's car is back home and working.

DH as with the last 3 shots had a reaction. I only had a very sore arm and aches and pains when I woke up. I was hoping he wouldn't have a reaction since it was Moderna. He did feel good enough to go for a walk this afternoon then was wiped out. I read most of the day 200 out of 300 page book. Will try to finish it tonight or tomorrow.

Jazzy - hope the plumbing gets figured out sooner than later so you can have your new dishwasher installed. We need to get new racks for our dishwasher as they are disintegrating!

I had no reaction to my second Moderna booster, nor did Bob to his Pfizer. (Hope we have antibodies).

Bob actually had lunch not far from here (instead of down by his hospitals), because he said if his car breaks down he wanted to be only a mile walk from home.

NM, it's actually pretty clean under the house, I was happily surprissed! Hoping you're having some nice weather for the weekend.

Karen, glad the boosters were uneventful. Did you get snow?

Jazzy, bummer about the plumbing issue, I can totally relate. Remember the problems I had with the wash machine, took 3 of them! I use my dishwasher as a drying rack!

Sandy, is the tow truck driver footing the bill for the car? Altho, I guess it didn't get towed at his fault.

Had my solar guy out, his name is Matt, but I call him MattGuyver, because he can figure just about anything out. He too crawled under the house and checked the same valve boxes that I did and no go. It suddenly dawns on me, I remember Darrell showing me something in the house, in our closet, about water. Sure enough, that is where the shut off valve was! Also, my friend came over to work on the Old West Town, he'll be back Friday. It's going to be a big job, so just a little at a time, as he works, plus has to work half days every other weekend. Going to see my friend Tammy (former hygienist) today, she is up here for the weekend. Tomorrow, I drive to Phoenix for treatment. I may opt to switch treatments to Piqray and save on gas!

Lori - no measurable snow by me, but enough for tree damage. Foothills and mountains got upwards of 1 - 2 feet. Booster uneventful for me, DH felt lousy all day yesterday but is feeling better today.

When we had antibodies checked last summer when traveling, he had way more than me - almost double - wonder if that is related to reaction or related to history of cancer or related to nothing, it just is. We've had all our vaccinations on the same day/same time and the same vaccine.

Snow is in the history for now. It's 42 right now and high will be 57 and warming up through week, but hoping the rain i the forecast will come to fruition.

Have a great Sunday
