Rag curlers

 Just remembering a childhood memory .(  My last doll   

I remember when my mom used to brush my hair she would brush my ears, forehead, neck & even my brain. Then tie rags around bunches of hair to made curls.    Saying an old favorite rhyme she said was told to her as a child.  “There once was a girl that had a little curl right in the middle of her forehead. And when she was good , she was very very good…but when she was bad she was horrid!”    Lol

Car problems.

 Our continuing car saga … 

We got an engine replaced.  Ran great. As we took sis back to Ohio and after returning ,  it was not shifting into gear right. Thinking transmission .. Bob took the car back to Dodge dealer    They put a computerized tester on it and  said it was not  an “inside transmission”  problem but  possibly needs another engine ( would be replaced at no cost as it was recently already replaced ). So …we are without wheels again. Our grandson is with us until Thursday to help  us out with errands. And Daughter taking Bob for Dr Appt.    Hopefully getting a  dealer’s loaner next week until everything is  getting fixed 

I hear parts for cars are an issue these days  ugh!
