It's Not The Energizer Bunny

But according to Grandma J's cardiologist, her heart is just as good and robust. Yes he did, he said, robust.

He also said he doesn't want to see Grandma J again, unless it's at Mass on Sunday. Did I mention to you that Grandma J's ortho doctor, Bob also goes to her church? I tell you, this is scary just a fluke, or maybe divine intervention.

One thing he did gently remind Grandma J about, and that was diet and exercise. He said it's not that she's fat.....just short.

With all this wonderful news, Grandma J gets in her car to head on home, and when she looks down, this is what she sees......

Look at my MPG number! Yeah, like in my dreams do I get that kind of mileage with a V6 and the AC on full blast all the time.

It's time to swing by the Ford dealership and have them check this out....and get an early oil change before trekking to CA next month.

The waiting room at the Ford dealership is customer friendly with tons of beverages and snacks. Yeah, I'll just wait for my car right here, thank you

Grandma J grabbed a good seat next to this guy....
Oh, and they washed my car...and vacuumed it out!

With all the good news today, Grandma J decided on a Fiesta Taco with extra tomatoes, and a Strawberry Fuitista from Taco Bell. Ay, caramba!

Yesterday, KFC. Today Taco Bell and Krispy Kremes.

Grandma J., I'm gaining ten pounds a day reading your blog, although I'm losing water weight with all the drool pooling up on my keyboard.

Does Crusty ever accompany you on these trips?

Sounds like you had a good day!

Hooray for Grandma J's robust heart!!

I'm not fat. I just need to be about 6'4"

That is the best news I have heard since the Nascar tickets...(yes, I'm REALLY excited).

Did that soldier hit on you, you hot thang!

Love you.

Ay Caramba!
I am glad your heart is good...we all knew this already though.
If I was 5 ft 7, I would be scary thin. But in reality, I am only 5 ft 2.
Ok, 5 Ft 1 1/2.
But here is to you being robust!!!

...I think I take my car to the wrong place to get fixed! That's a mighty fine waiting room!

Happy Hump Day!

Sounds like a great day! I strongly dislike my Ford dealership and they so don't have a refreshment area. Sheesh!
I'm just short too!

Pat Jenkins said...

didn't you say your doctor was hot grandma j? maybe that got your heart beating extra "good"?... he he... a healthy heart and a healthy car keeps everything pumping!!!..

Oh my goodness, does your Ford dealership know how to take care of waiting customers or what?

And um yeah, I'm REALLY short for my weight. I'm about 2 feet too short! *lol*

Does the Ford dealership provide those snacks free? Can you trade in a clunker snack ..say a Dunkin Donut for a Krispy Kreme?

Yeah, I'm not fat either. It's just that I'm only 5 feet 9 inches tall. I mean, 5 feet 9 inches short. Bring on the Yummie Tummie, Bossy!

Angel Mama said...

So, does anyone have any ideas on how to get taller? I'm only 5'2"! And, Cheers!! to Grandma J's robust heart! Did you tell that cute soldier how robust your heart is? said...

Well, I'll be! Who would have thought that the Ford house was the spot to hang out?! I'll be looking to go there next time I have a chance!

Unknown said...

I was about to go out to the car dealership right this second if your mpg was really 64! Can you even imagine? I would almost like to fly to Texas right now just to enjoy a snack at that dealership! How stinking nice is that? WOWZA! But my favorite thing of all was the soldier. I love them and I am SO thankful for them! So, so thankful!

And, I am thankful about your heart. And I am thankful for that salad. It looked delish.

And I am NOT thankful that you reminded me that I need to exercise too since I am totally WAY too short for my weight. Like 2 feet short for this weight : ) Hopefully I will grow to be 7' 4 soon, then I would look HOT : )
