Where is my fairy godmother

and her magic wand, or a rich relative who leaves me an inheritance. No such luck I am afraid!
My car has been acting up, so had it checked out, and have found it it is not worth pouring more money into. There goes my visits home to New Zealand for the next few years, as I will have to save to buy another vehicle.
I dread telling my daughter, who is not well, that I will not be seeing her for a while. 
I will just have to take every day as it comes, and pray for a miracle.

Wednesday humor

A customer was bothering the waiter in a restaurant. First, he asked that the air conditioning be turned up because he was too hot, then he asked it be turned down cause he was too cold, and so on for about half an hour.

Surprisingly, the waiter was very patient; he walked back and forth and never once got angry. So finally, a second customer asked him why he didn't throw out the pest.

"Oh, I really don't care or mind," said the waiter with a smile. "We don't even have an air conditioner."

How many were on the tree?

When I was a kid, we did not have a Christmas tree, because the day after Christmas, Boxing Day, we left on our annual vacation. I am now making up for lost time, by having the most gorgeous decorated tree tree I can manage. 
I don't know how many more years I am going to be able to have such a large tree, 7' tall, as it is heavy, even in three sections, to bring upstairs and set up, and that is with the help of Mr C.
This year, as I stood and looked at the tree once it was covered in Christmas finery, I wondered how many decorations I had placed on it, so I decided to count them as I took them off, which I did yesterday.
There were 428 decorations, and I still did not have all I own on the tree.
Perhaps this year I will deck out the tree with all the decorations I own *grin*
