    Well it looks like I have the night off of work! Unfortunately it is because the truck won't start! The damn cold weather here has drained the last bit of life from the tired battery and it just won't start. Not even jumper cables would help me :( To make things worse it is 11:20pm here and can't even find anyone to get a ride from. Also living more than 20miles from work and being -10 without the wind I am NOT going to ride my bike!

    So I did what anyone would . . .

    I concieded defeat, called in sick, mixed a drink and curled up next to a nice warm tpf!

    LOL

    BTW: How come the smileys are absent in my posting screen now? Where did they go??? :(
