They picked me!!!

Washington state is testing out road/gas/transportation tax by mile. Instead of a flat tax, taxing according to use. A while back, they asked for volunteers and I signed up and then they said they had more than they needed and would let me know and last night they did... I was in if I wanted to be. I don't remember why I signed up but why the heck not. As usual, I glossed over the details. Life's too short.

They will be sending me a meter thingie to go into my OBD port and, of course, I have an app. It will at least be fun to watch and see what happens.

My phone rang about 5:30 last night and, per usual, I didn't answer it. But got an instant voicemail. My window blinds are in!! a week and a half early!! It was the installer guy. He's coming over tomorrow morning to install them. Yahooooo!

Alexa, Get ready to be movin' some blinds!!

A few years ago, you could connect with people on Google maps and follow them. I could "see", for instance, a friend coming to my house - is he two blocks away, nearly there, at my front door. It was very cool. And then the privacy police landed and arrested all interesting things.

Now, it's kind of back but not nearly as good. My brother and I are connected and it is fun. Especially now that he's on the road. He and his wife are taking a road trip east from there home in Texas. Last night they stayed in a BnB in Vicksberg, MS and this morning I can see that they are at the military park there. He's into all that historical war stuff. There is no genetic vin there. He got it all. But, I'm glad he's getting to scratch his itch and it's fun to follow along the map while he does. I think their next stop is Nashville.

The next stop here is the sewing room. I have a pattern tweak that I just can't seem to figure out. Today I will try again. And I need to get out again - a walk around the block or maybe take the car out to get gas. Pretty exciting stuff.

But, first, I need to get dressed and hang up my swimsuit.
