Even the Edsel outsold the Volt.
In every year it was offered...

pH Impedance test is bad enough. In addition, everything that could go wrong went wrong, mostly in finding the place and during testing.

The place has half a dozen buildings and as many garages, all poorly labeled. I know several of them now.

Then, today returning for the cable to be pulled out of the stomach through the nose my GPS went haywire and got me horribly lost.

To top the stress off, it’s their only machine and they had a patient waiting because I was an hour late.

Man, am I glad to be done with that!

Anyone have any GPS recommendations?

Mary

Where’d you get those sales figures? I’ve only heard rumors of Volts rusting on lots. Would love to know it’s true. Ordering them sold before GM thought they were ready was another huge mistake.

Now, if he’d had Volts made from recycled metal from Cash for Clunkers, that would have been inspirational. (Not).

Sorry for my lack of funding this FReepathon. My Mimi cost me all I had.

Here's another measly $25 on it's way.

So nice to see you!! We were all worried, don’t let the rest of the team be nonchalant about it. We were worried.

Hubby and I have a Garmin, but we find that a MapQuest map and my navigation get us just about anywhere.

We’ll probably used both when we go to Texas, though.

We tried Bing directions, but Bing treats you like a retarded six year old. I laugh too much when I’m trying to navigate off Bing maps.

Bless you and thank you, Onyx! It's as if the whole event was cursed. Too many things went wrong.

So now I'm home, free of a tube taped to the side of my face with a box hanging like a brick from my neck.

I was so full of vengefulness I ordered Chinese take out. (forbidden fruit)

Revenge is mine!

ROTFL @ Chinese take out! You never lose your delightful humor! I prayed for all day and your were in our thoughts. Sweet trisham asked about you and that gave me a reminder to pray the Rosary for you.

I knew you said you were going to a different hospital, but had no idea you would have difficulty finding it. Gosh, that’s the last stress you needed.

WELCOME HOME and so happy you’re back here with us where you belong!

Thought I’d had every test in the universe and then they started coming up with new tessts.

I have to have a GPS. My spouse, Wracked Rider, is a horrid driver and worse navigator. Whatever the opposite of navigator is, that’s him. LOL!

Online Google maps look best. It gave me 3 alternate routes and showed realtime traffic.

I’m whupped.

He’ll be waiting for me. He’s still hanging around here, but I told him it’s okay to go. I know I will see him again.

What I call Revenge is something I do to kick the ass of a bad day. Thankfully I'm Scot and cheap to satisfy and for a horrendous two days, Chinese is way up there cost-wise.

You haven't gotten lost driving in a city till you've gotten lost on Boston's cow path created roads, roads that close or reverse direction frequently with no notice. Oy!

I hope the test comes out satisfactorily. I want to get this fixed so I can sleep again and I sure don't want that test redone.

Thank you so much for your prayers!

Your hubby did a masterful job of writing that article.

It appears you both have some great memories that will stay around to help you through this even though Rocket is gone.

I hope you are feeling better.

I hate getting lost. Using the Hancock as a reference point has always helped me to avoid getting lost in Boston, but that might not be at all helpful in other parts of the city. I also haven’t driven into the city alone since the late 80s or early 90s. It’s changed quite a bit since then.

What a difficult experience! It’s tough driving into Boston for medical care, because you’ve already got so much on your mind, and trying to negotiate traffic and finding the location, parking, going through check-in, it’s just a lot for a person to cope with alone. If you have to go back, can someone go with you?

I'm so glad you made it through your medical "ordeal" otay.

I have a Garmin GPS. I really like it. I can now blame any and EVERY tardiness on the talking girl inside of it. Spend around $140 (catch a sale Radio Shack,Best Buy etc) and MAKE SURE you get one with "Lifetime Updates".

As far as "Chinese food".......

My Hubby is an excellent writer, and he frequently gets published in the local paper with his political opinions.

He has been published in magazines that are related to his work, both technical information and humor related to his industry.

Yes, thank you so much, MM. I am starting to feel a bit better, and although I still haven’t let go just yet, the days are getting a little easier.

Having worked in Boston 10 years and having my main hospital for more years than I care to admit, I know most of Boston north of Mass Ave. Below that is spotty but I can find brookline from there and Fenway and a bit of rte 9.

If traffic wasn't so insane getting around would be easier. I'm not sure it's really Boston where BI and B&W are. It's over by the Charles south of the BMFA.

You say you haven't been in for a long time. Some neighborhood I used to be familiar with have gone upscale and tree growth makes me feel my age. 39. LOL!

Oh, Rochester!

When I first started driving into Boston I would take Mt. Auburn St. or Route 2 to Memorial Dr. into Boston. Such a pretty drive. Now we take the Mass Pike when we go. Not so pretty.

Those who would go in are working and the rest make me prefer to go alone. That way I can go at my own speed. Besides, my swearing at traffic scares passengers. Hubby can’t go. He’s brilliant guy who can’t drive or find his way out of our village. 8-+)

I hear you. :) I talk when I'm driving. I call all of the other drivers "buddy", male and female. It drives my husband crazy on the rare occasions when he's the passenger. Me: "Buddy, what are you doing? Slow down, buddy. Slow down."

Him: "That's a woman. You can't call a woman 'buddy'".

Me: "Why not? Are you saying that a woman can't be a friend?"

Ad infinitum.

Mine’s an old Tom Tom that cost $79 in the last century and has served well. The three major brands are Garmin, Magellan, and TomTom, I think. Seems like Garmin comes up most.

Bingo! You really did get me to LOL; reminded me of Erma Bombeck.

When you've been married a long time you get to know each other very well and it's a good thing.
