Some Saturday errands.

We ran some errands late this morning into the early afternoon. We ran over to the Westside to sign our taxes and get those in the mail. We’re happy to report that we’re looking forward to a pretty nice return from the federal but we owed a little to the state. So we’re happy that taxes are done for another year. From there, we ran over to Tire Discounters on North Bend Road. We’ve been having a slow leak in our passenger rear tire. It’s never gone completely flat because we kept putting air in it. But then a few days later the tire pressure warning light would come back on. While we were waiting for our tire to be fixed, we spied a Skyline down the street. So instead of waiting in the tire waiting room, we walked down the road and had lunch at Skyline! Genifer and I haven’t had Skyline together in forever…

While we were at Skyline, Genifer found this sticker in Swarm that we didn’t know existed. And it’s funny because well, it’s named Oscar…

Mmmm, cheese coneys…

The tire place said your rear tires had near bald spots on them so we had the rear tires replaced. So now we have four brand new tires on our car and we should be good on the whole tire thing for a while again…

Errands aren’t that much fun. Buying new tires isn’t that much fun either. But the Skyline was outstanding. 😀🧀🌭❤️

#TBT Pause for paws.

Milan used to love going on car rides…

Always remembering the good times with the bud dog. 😀❤

Seen and noted.

Genifer took this photo today. Our car said it was 81º outside this afternoon…

I don’t know that it was that warm outside today. But it was definitely in the mid-70s. And whatever the temperature actually was, it was definitely way warmer than it should have been for a day in the middle of February. And we liked it. A lot. 😀🌡️❤️

Our VW Jetta GLI.

Yesterday morning, our VW Jetta GLI wouldn’t start. Luckily, we could use Genifer’s mom car to get to work. And wouldn’t you know it, our Jetta started right up when I got home from work. I made an appointment to get it looked at this morning and we dropped it off on our way to work. It needed a new battery. I also had them replace the front tires, rear brakes and got it a 50,000-mile tune-up. And it was all set to be picked up this afternoon. I got to ride a new bus, Metro’s Rt. 4 to go pick up our Jetta right by Xavier’s Cintas Center. It was a piece of cake…

It’s been such a great car. I love it every bit as much now as I did when I first got it almost 9 years ago…

It’s good to have it back. Hopefully, it’ll be good to go for another 50,000 miles! 😀🚘❤️


The odometer on our 2008 VW Jetta GLI hit 52,000 miles

Not too shabby for a car I bought all the way back in November 2008. 😀🚘❤️


Even our clock says pm, this morning the odometer on our 2008 VW Jetta GLI finally went over 50,000 miles

It’s been such a wonderful car. Here’s to the next 50,000 miles! 😀🙌👏❤️


Our 2008 VW Jetta GLI hit 49,000 miles on the odometer today…

Thanks to Genifer for grabbing a photo for me. 🙂


Our 2008 VW Jetta  GLI hit 47000 miles on the odometer this morning…


We got our Jetta back!

We picked up our Jetta from the repair shop this morning. It’s been in the shop for the last couple weeks to get the check engine light looked at. Turns out while it was in, there were a handful of recalls that needed to be addressed. And that’s what took so long…

In the meantime, we got to drive this new 2017 Jetta with all the bells and whistles…

It was pretty nice. But I really like ours just fine…

It’s good to have it back. 🙂

Bad news. Good news.

There aren’t very many things I miss about living downtown. Not many at all. I thought there would be more. But there just aren’t. One of the few things I miss is the ability to have Jet’s Pizza delivered. It’s kind of a weird thing to miss. But I just really love their pizza. And there really isn’t a Jet’s close to us in Northside. It’s kind of a bummer. But what are you going to do? The check engine light came on in our car on the way to work at the end of last week. So we had to run our Jetta out to the dealership so they could work on getting that issue resolved. That’s the bad news. The good news, ahem, the REALLY GOOD NEWS… There is a Jet’s Pizza just down the road from the VW dealership! So on the way home, we stopped and picked up some delicious Jet’s Pizza and their outstanding ranch dressing for dipping!!!

We started with some delicious Jet’s bread…

And there it is…

An eight-corner Jet’s masterpiece. Genifer got pepperoni and onions on her half. And I got sausage and mushrooms. So good. So good. Soo good. I love their thick pan crust pizza. It’s just really amazing. I’ve missed it some much! Hopefully, this will hold me over until the next time we find ourselves by a Jet’s Pizza. 🙂
