“Missed Connection Monday” is brought to you by your local Craigslist. These are real “love notes” that strangers leave for other strangers in the ‘Personals’ section of Craigslist.
Or as I like to call it –
‘Your local serial killer hunting ground.’ LADIES IN JEEP WRANGLER IN HULLS GULCH To the two ladies who graciously gave my dog and I a lift back to my truck on Friday, thank you!
Turns out, I broke my ankle on the trail so not having to walk that last ~mile out was greatly appreciated. Thank you again!
If you happen to know two ladies who gave someone a ride in the area on Friday morning, please pass along my thanks!
Rob ***Yeah… Ted Bundy has a similar story…Turns out he broke his arm…

If you happen to know these two ladies DO NOT pass along Ted Jr’s “thanks!” Are you fucking kidding me right now??? THIS is Hulls Gulch!
(Photo credit, Me!) I’m not picking up a quarter if I drop it let alone some guy I don’t know with a dog that may or may not be his or that may or may not be trained to rip my leg off! People are so fucking stupid…
Happy Monday folks!
I’m a little late to the game today. Lots going on. I do have to say, it was fantastic seeing Halloween decorations up in every store I went into today. Seriously. It’s been so hot here ANYTHING that brings thoughts of cooler weather is okay by me!
Tomorrow is another early day for me, in fact, this whole week is going to be early days for me. We don’t have a definitive date for my sister’s surgery so I’m trying to get my schedule in sync and reschedule what I can plus get all of my personal appts., dr. appts., etc. out of the way. I am not looking forward to an MRI. Any of those kinds of tests always freak me out, plus I flatlined in one of them before so yeah, no fun for me at all…
I hope that all of you have had a wonderful start to your week. Don’t work too hard if that’s your gig and if you’re playing, don’t overdo it. That heat is killer out there and apparently, it’s the same all over the globe!
Here in Idaho when it rains, it sprinkles. – For about a minute.
And that’s all we got today was about a minute of sprinkles. Boo. Now it’s nothing but gray skies, which today aren’t bugging me so much because I woke up sooooo stinkin’ tired this morning and no matter how much coffee and iced tea I drank I was still tired.
Boom. Just like that, all of the caffeine decides to work and here I am, 11pm. WIDE AWAKE!
The highlight of my day and the only reason I put a bra on today – seriously – was getting the car into the shop. Actually getting the car into the shop wasn’t the highlight, trying to get an Uber to get home was.
Have any of you ever used the Uber service? It’s an alternative cab service. It’s an app for your phone and you can read all about it here.
I would tell you all about it myself except OUR DRIVER NEVER SHOWED! Not even kidding. We waited almost an HOUR for NOBODY!
Of course, it was at precisely this moment that I needed to find a bathroom and nope, not one business around that had a public restroom.
– We (“Puzzle Girl” and I) were only dropping the car off. The shop wasn’t open. –
We ended up walking to a grocery store which thankfully did have a public restroom.
We did a little shopping and then called a cab.
I have to tell you, I was pleasantly surprised. The cab was clean and our driver wasn’t a serial killer although I suspect he fancied himself a pop singer… He had a sign on the dash that read, “Singing is allowed and encouraged.” I’m pretty sure that was meant for him personally because he sang along to the radio the whole way home. Not gonna’ lie, it’s kinda’ weird being in a vehicle with someone you don’t know who’s singing along to the radio with full lung power. It was sorta’ like our own personal version of ‘Carpool Karaoke’ minus James Corden and any celebrity passengers.
I was super surprised at the fare! In Michigan, you can’t get anywhere in a cab for under twenty bucks. Boise fare? Eight bucks WITH a tip. How crazy is that?? I wouldn’t go so far as to say I’d take a cab everywhere for that price but hey when you’re in a pinch. It’s a nice, affordable option. At least in Boise.
ME BEING ME MOMENT – I did survey our driver from head to toe for identifying scars and tattoos. I checked for escape routes as soon as I got into the cab and I made sure there were door handles and functioning locks. I cracked the window just in case I had to kick it out and had 91 already dialed into my phone with my finger ready to press the last 1 if need be.
Shake your heads and laugh. I watch those creepy crime shows. They won’t take me without a fight!
Then, it being boy child #3’s birthday month… When we got home “Puzzle Girl” decided to decorate for his favorite holiday too. (I helped a lit’l bit.)
That candle makes the whole apt smell like you’re walking through an apple orchard. I’ll be going back and buying a case of those! The spiderweb light? Just cool.
Okay. Well. That was my day in a nutshell. Now I’m off to go read about some of your days.
Anybody else excited for the upcoming holidays??
Which one is YOUR favorite?
Mine’s Christmas. Halloween is a very close second.
