Bits and pieces of my life. I am a lifelong Christian. I have been married for over 39 years to Stan. No children. We have 3 Italian Greyhounds: Persephone, Dresden & Capodimonte and a calico cat named Binky. We have 9 nieces/nephews and 9 grandnieces/nephews whom we love. My hobbies are genealogy, reading, digital scrapbooking, history, dogs, homemaking. This is a personal blog and not a business. I share what interests me and I am not selling anything or making a profit.
Due to Hurricane Ike, people are anticipating gas shortages (the offshore oil rigs were evacuated due to Hurricane Ike so supplies from the gulf will be cut off until they get back and get oil flowing again) and gas hikes. Yesterday, gas was $3.39/gallon when we left for Charlotte that morning. On the way back home that evening, at the same gas station, gas was $3.49/gallon so I filled up again to top off the tank. Then we went out last night and we stopped at a local station to get me some coffee. Here were the lines of people waiting to fill up.
