On other news fronts . . . I got nothiní!
We did get a phone call from my mom on Friday and it seems that she has her new apartment in the Lodge as of August 1st. This puts a bit of a spin on what we were planning in term of agendaís for around here. So I find myself calling car rental places to find out rates on small truck or van rentals. I canít believe what they want for a couple days rental. Itís astronomical. In fact I called one place and they told me it would start at $495 (plus taxes and insurances). That was to travel both ways (Iím still leaning in this direction). I called another Ďsupposedí reputable company and was told I was crazy for wanting to do a return trip, that flying to Calgary and renting a truck to come home would be wiser and more affordable. They wanted over $800 (including taxes and insurance) just to rent it out of Calgary and drive it home, and Iíd still have to pay for the flights into Calgary. Thatís just crazy talk.
I have a few more places to call today, and Iím putting out the word that if anyone would lend us their truck that we would pay them for it. But finding that rare person might be hard. Iíd lend my vehicle out, but thatís just me.
Well, Iíll leave you with the results of the latest personality test, and hope that life gets more exciting to write about soon.
