Odometer and finally a finish!

My fourteen-year-old car rolled up 76,000 miles on Friday.  I pulled over to the side of the road to take this picture.  I bought my 2000 Mazda 626 new in early 2000 (with a little help from my dad).  I traded in my eight-year-old Dodge Caravan.  The Caravan only had 57,000 miles on it.  In the last twenty-two years I have had three vehicles.  I tend to keep a vehicle for a long time.  But back to the Mazda.  The only problem it has ever given me was when a deer jumped out in front of me on Corridor G one night.  It did $5,000 damage to the front end that was only cosmetic.  Stowers Body Shop replaced my hood and now the paint is coming right off, just the hood.  If I keep the car much longer it is going to have to have a paint job.  It still has all the pep and energy it had when I got it.  I wouldn't hesitate to drive it across the country if I had to.

I finally got this small quilt finished.  This picture was taken before it was sandwiched and quilted.  I got the binding done while I was a poll worker at the election last Tuesday.  We only had 70 voters all day so I had plenty of time to get this finished.  I have another finish to report but it is a gift and I haven't given it yet, so I will report it after I give it to Pat.

I have been desultory about writing this blog lately.  This is, however, my 200th post to the blog.  I will try to do better in the future.
