Really thinking about a Buick Encore! It doesn't look it in the pic,  but it is smaller than the SUV Chevy Equinox. Equinox is 74" wide and Encore is 70". A big difference to my small condo garage.  ::)

Heat Wave! 🌞🌵😓

PEEPS  You could luck out and be on the edge if it moves further north?  Either way you could be in for icing.

LANI  That pine cone opening is so cool.

JASPURR  I'm going to google the mockingbird sound when done typing..CLYNN provided the link - Quite a "songsmith!"

PHYL  I'm like a zombie with 5 hours - Can't think clearly. Guess cuz I'm used to more hours.

CLYNN    I think I could ID a cuckoo if I heard it LOL    I got lucky this afternoon as well with purging.  Hauled up a file cabinet drawer full of folders having everything to do with his long deceased father's house and it's maintenance, bills appliance directions LOL  I've been reborn  LOLOL   Thanks - I like Palermos.  Will look for that one - Would be a nice change of pace.   LOLOL  "Lizzards " added to the Covid trauma - How much more can we take?

LISA   Our tree will go down sometime tomorrow.  Should be snowing here so a good time to do it.  I too will miss the lights and seeing all the ornaments.

T40  Thanks for checking in and that you are OK.  Too close for comfort. Prayers for all affected.  Do you know anyone in the boulder area that had to evacuate?

JASPURR     Holy smokes with the mocking bird attacks.   

LISA   They are so beautiful and then just melt away  :(

OH NO  I did not hear about Betty White  She didn't make it to her 100th.  :'(  What a class act and long time beloved actress/comedian. I liked her in Hot in Cleveland as well with Jane Leeves, Valerie Bertinelli and I can't think of the 3rd.  You tube has some great out takes from that show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yf3VayvAF_E&ab_channel=TVLand

PUFF   Same here with Golden Girls.

KAREN  Good point about no need for home security with mockingbirds.  :o

So sad to hear about Betty White!  :(

tsk - Wow, you have been busy purging!  Yes, a snow day is a good day to put away the tree, and get organized. 

Peep - Will the Encore fit in your condo garage?

kb - I too, wondered what was wrong with Betty.  She always seemed so healthy.

Lori - Those cocoa bombs looks great! 

jaspurr - LOL on the eggnog!

T40 - I am glad that you checked in, and that you are OK!

Lani - Enjoy your evening with Shannon and Mike!

My Pontiac is 198" long with a deep trunk. Encore is only 168" but tall. Malibu has a small trunk. Classified as a sub compact.

Here's drone footage of one of neighborhoods devastated by the fire. It's hard to get the misery it caused in perspective.

tsk - I only casually know a former neighbor who had just purchased a new home in Superior, which was also burned out.

No, I am making comparisons to decide what I want. Will need to visit a couple of dealers to look at them in person. All manufacturers are so hell bent on selling people SUVs around here!  >:(. You walk through a parking lot and that is all you see. Midsize cars are quickly becoming a thing of the past.
Heat Wave! 🌞🌵😓

PEEPS   That's a nice looking car.

T40   That looks pretty surreal :o.  In that one part - houses across the street untouched.  Some big ole fir trees still standing.  What can you say about the people who bought the new home.  :'(   So very sad.

Despite the fact that I pronounced my order 3 times " House lo mein "- I got pork lo mein  All good.   My house didn't burn down. :-X

Happy New Year everyone.  I will be in bed at my usual time  ;) ;)

Yikes T40. That's a little too close for comfort to generally where I believe you are in CO.   :o

Hi ...
The internet has been out until just a few ago.
So will make this quick for the evening. And, hope it stays 'till  a few after mid night.

T40 relieved to hear from you! The drone footage is beyond description ! The devistation and the loss!  I'm glad you shared this. Keep you and yours safe. Hugs .
Lani  They started fireworks here 1.5 hrs ago.  Steak for din-din sounds  wonderful it's been ages since I've sunk my teeth in one. Enjoy y'all
Lisa/Tsk everything Christmas here is removed save for the Nativity and evergreen garland in the living room...that stays to Epiphany.
Puff Golden Girls was a great show All those fabulous ladies are gone now.  :'(
Karen agree Betty White was one of the best advocates for animal welfare.
Gosh Lori those chocolate bombs ...why you torture us like that? LOL
Tsk  ;)

I decided to add stuffed clams to the menu...they're baking right now.
