The Saturn is ready to roll

I lucked out this morning with the Saturn.  The wheel alignment went quickly and also the wheel balancing.  Three of the wheels were out of balance, so I hope it rides smoother now.  It turned out that the tires are fine and still have a lot of mileage left in them so they didn't need to be replaced.  That is a relief and also good for the pocketbook.

We are taking a trip to visit Gerry's relatives in the Cleveland Ohio area over the Labor Day weekend.  It's been a couple years since we've seen her 95 year young Aunt Mary and this is a good time for a visit.  It's a 300 mile drive mostly on turnpikes, so it should be a short trip time wise, but you never know.  If we were going to continue on out west, we would have taken the motorhome and wait until mid September to leave, but we aren't going that route.

This was sort of an impromptu trip, but should work out fine.  The grand daughter of Gerry's cousin is having a baby shower given for her, so Gerry will see a lot of the family at that time.  I think I will go geocaching and miss out on the baby shower.  

That was the highlight of our day, other than getting a lot of chores finished.  Gerry was busy as a beaver and is now dozing on the couch with her computer on her lap.  She is one tired lady.  I think it is time to hit the hay and call it a night.

Good night all!


  1. You have had a very busy summer. Safe travels to Ohio. Hope too see you both on our trip out West. will e-mail Gerry when it gets closer to us leaving which will be coming very soon.
