The moment we have all been waiting for....
She is smiling at blogland!
Say Hello to "Lurlota"... It is a new 2008 Dodge Dakota, Jeff's old truck was a Ford Ranger and was named "laurlene"... hence you would say it like "Laurloda"..
It has 4 wheel drive, partially leather seats, heated seats, crew cab, an auxillary hook up and carrier for an mp3 player, 0 miles on it, and it is a V8 !
Red is Jeff's favorite color and oddly enough it is the same color as his previous truck! This was purely out of coincidence since it was the only 4 x4 crew cab truck at this dealership he got it at!
In case you did not know, Jeff was in a terrible accident about a month ago. You can read more about it HERE
Everyone walked away with only minor injuries, but Jeff was t-boned on his side- causing his vehicle to be t-boned by TWO other vehicles on the passenger side ( our friend Nate was sitting there). Anyhow, his truck was completely totalled. After a long ordeal and lots of stress and worrying and financial issues- Jeff's uncle got a fantastic deal on a truck that was at a dealership ( his aunt works there) that was going out of business.
He got this truck for about 1/2 the price it is worth due to the dealership closing and generous people all around. Thank You Uncle Jeff and Aunt Darlene!
It was dark when Jeff got home so I will take more pics tomorrow! We went out to dinner to celebrate!
I have been there once before and a long time ago!
I ordered two appetizers for my dinner ..
Steamed Vegetable Dumplings and Seared Ahi Tuna.
The tuna came with a lovely mixed green salad and cucumbers- I ate all of it! The tuna was a little too rare than I would normally prefer but still delicious! Jeff ordered that sweet and sour pork, it came with bell pepper and pinapple and i had a bite of it- that was yummy as well.
The veggie dumplings were steamed and tasty as well -very filling!
and... Fortune Cookie... i just like to read the fortune
"If you put up with small annoyances you will gain great results"
Pretty good advice- And fitting- Jeff's new truck is more than either of us would have thought would have come out of all these "annoyances" along the way, but it sure is a great result!
oven roasted sliced chicken, sandwich thin with mustard and a pickle, toasted kale, fresh cut veggies with some goddess dressing to dip, half a banana.
Steel Cut Oats made with water, blueberries, cinnamon, banana, peanut butter...
and coffee ( no photo- it was black)
And if you made it this far... Jack thought he'd say hey to all my bloggie friends' puppies
Any takers? No...
Aw... okay back to sleep.
Love to All of you!
