How MyLot will help The Horse make a surprise $0030.5000 or so today!

I wasn't scheduled to work at the preschool today, but I went over there to turn in my time card and hug all of my 2-year-olds goodbye. I'm heading off to Montana for about 10 days, and wanted to get all of my ducks lined up before I leave. While I was reading a book to one of my young friends, the Head Teacher asked me if I could "work" for an hour and a half, as someone had not shown up. I had to get my car back to the fix-it place, but I said yes, and had big fun with my young friends. So, including my MyLot earnings, I'll have an extra few bucks in the bank, which will go toward my road trip to Montana. Have you had any surprise "windfalls" lately?

Don't say "wind" to someone who just had a colonoscopy. I came in third in the golf tournament this weekend. Gave most of my winnings to my brother for gas money and for him to get something to eat after he took me to the hospital for the procedure.

Hey, eat some Thai food, so you can at least revel the the joy of your own wind. Go to skyscrapers and indulge while in elevators and take secret videos of the reactions of those with you. God, I am evil. Don't tell @Vandana7, though. She thinks I'm an angel.

@FourWalls I hope I find me a pygmy pony to hang out with. I don't want to be lonely. I'd forgotten that there's a pretty classic Zappa lead in this song!

@andriaperry There has been a black bear up in our part of the Judith Mountains. I don't know if s/he has family. I'll keep my eyes open. And yes, I'll share.

@TheHorse I know how to feed myself in the Alabama wilderness, I bet Montana is another world and has no wild foods that I would know. However, I used to read all of Rex Trulove`s articles and he lives there, so I might find wild cranberries and wild cherries.. that is if one day I make it that way when I am traveling the USA in an RV.

I'll bend over for a nickel. For a penny, I'll bend over too, but only to make sure it's heads for the next person.

No surprise "windfalls" really except that when I get paid next month it will be $9.xx and not the usual $5.xx - $6.xx.

No windfalls for me recently. But it does sound nice. I hope you have a great trip. My oldest son keeps talking about moving to Montana. I would sure miss him,Adry and the boys though.

It was a great trip. What makes him want to move to Montana?

@TheHorse I think the biggest part of it is because he wants a change . We drove through Montana and Wyoming when he was a kid and he really liked it then.

@jeanena It hasn't changed much. Beautiful Summers. Cold Winters. Low population density. Nice (and honest, for the most part) people.

No windfalls for me, but I'm glad you made some extra cash for your trip to Montana. Have a wonderful time and be careful driving with that Check Engine light flashing!!!

Happily, it's not flashing. I'd go nuts. It's just staring at me.

@DianneN The guys at the fix-it place actually turned it off before I left. But now I'm leaking oil. Ah, the joys of owning an older vehicle. I could get a newer Xterra, but finding on with a clutch in the color I like would not be easy.

Enjoy your vacations in Montana, I think to remember you have no Internet line there. No computer for 10 days will surely be relaxing.

I'll miss my MyLot friends as well! But I'll try to remember to bring my camera and think of stories I can tell. I may be a cereal poster this afternoon. I don't think I'll leave until tomorrow.
