Too H-O-T !!!

It was 84 outside this morning at 7am. I was expecting it to be hot, but not this hot.
This was after I had been driving awhile. When I first got in the car it said 105, and climbed up to 107. It stayed there the rest of the way home. For June this is WAY to hot. I can't wait to see what August has in store for us!

Happy Fathers Day!!

My Dad I know is enjoying his day. He and my Mom are here.....

Jay got a fathers day gift as well. I had been hunting and hunting for grills that were on sale. I finally found the right one for the right price. So the picture below is his Father's day gift. He is outside now assembling it. It completely his set of grills. We have the smoker, the charcoal grill and this is his gas grill. Anyone who knows Jay know that he loves to BBQ outside.

Thank you General Motors.

Did my post title throw you off. Well it might, but I have a lot to thank GM for. When life hands you lemons.....well this is my lemonade. Today wasn't the best day. GM officially filed bankruptcy. The "old GM" is done and soon the "new GM" will take over.

General Motors has provided my family with a lot of amazing opportunities. It started with my Grandfather who worked for MIC. My grandparents moved around (as most GM families do) and at one point they transferred my Grandfather to Massachusetts. That is where my father met my mother. Thanks to GM for that, without them my sister and I would surely not exist.

My Dad began working for GM while he was in college at the parts warehouse during the summers. Immediately after graduating from OU he began working for GMAC. GMAC gave us many adventures, we moved a lot during my childhood. Was I sad when I had to pack up and move, yes. As an adult am I thankful for all of the places and people I have gotten to met as a result of those moves, absolutely. I still am in contact with some of the people I met while living in Houston, Chicago, St. Louis, and El Paso (I was to young when I left Little Rock to have friends I was 1 1/2 years old). My parents are still in contact with several of their friends that they have met over the years as well.
They helped pay for both my sisters education and mine. They have provided a stable environment for my family for a LONG time. I learned to drive in a GM vehicle. I have ONLY ever owned GM vehicles. I might ONLY ever own GM vehicles.
My parents final move before my father retired after 32+ years at GMAC was to OKC. My parents then convinced me to come down and check out OKC. I was living outside of Denver at the time. I came down and visited and decided to move here. I am thankful to GMAC for moving my parents here, I love it here, I love being close to them, I love that I see them, even if it is just passing in our cars. I rarely have a day during the school year that I don't see one of my parent while we are going to or coming home from work. Had GM not moved my dad here I would not have met Jay and in turn would not have Breanna and JJ.
They are basically responsible for the meeting of my parents, and the meeting of Jay and I.
So to the "old GM" I would like to Thank You, I am sad that you had to leave us. You are a HUGE part of my family. Thanks for everything.

I am happy to return a bit of money though my taxes to help you out. You have done so much for us it is the least I can do.
