Carolina Caravan, Party Time, and Granny

Last week, I put a dollar into a machine to get some Rolaids and three rolls popped out. And that's when I knew my luck was finally changing. And I was right. I have a car!!!!!! My very own, I-don't-have-to-share-it-with-anybody-else-except-maybe-the-passengers car!!!!! I have been without a car since October!!!!!

My new beloved is a slightly banged up '93 Dodge Caravan whom I've dubbed Caroline. All right, she's a gas guzzler but she was cheap and she's mine, all mine.

Doc got a car, too -- a '99 Honda CRV. That one we had to finance. I had hoped to avoid that, but oh, well. Zeze is happy with both of them. Now, if we can just keep them clean!

It's party time for us wild and crazy law librarians -- the annual meeting of the American Association of Law Librarians. And you haven't lived until you've partied with law librarians. Especially in St. Louis. Yowza! I'm at the airport waiting to get on the plane, and I can hardly contain myself. Actually I really am a little excited but it's mostly because my best friend James will be there and because the AALL convention is a great place to get lots of pretty decent free stuff from all the vendors.

And Granny? Well, Granny is one loyal reader -- she actually responded to my post even after my long and unexcused absence -- and I invite you to visit her (see my links). She's quite a lady, and not just because she reads my blog. Thank you, Granny!!


  1. Thanks for the kind words.

    I have a magic system which tells me when someone has posted something. I leave people on it forever.

    Eventually the name lights up and I say AHA!! there he/she is.

    See, here you are again.
