Bits and pieces of my life. I am a lifelong Christian. I have been married for over 40 years to Stan. No children. We have 1 Italian Greyhound named Capodimonte and 2 calico cats named Capt. Fishipants (a rare MALE calico) and Daphne Doolittle. We have 9 nieces/nephews and 10 grandnieces/nephews whom we love. My hobbies are genealogy, reading, digital scrapbooking, history, dogs, homemaking. This is a personal blog, not a business. I share what interests me I am not selling 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.
