Entry for October 01, 2006

WOW!!! It's October already--where has this year gone???? Christmas is just around the corner and I'm in a dither trying to think about what to get everyone on my gift list. This year I am going to be more organized--write a list and stick to it. I will eliminate impulse buying! Since my younger son was married and I became an instant grandma and great grandma, I've gone crazy buying for the little one. Like all kids, she plays with the toys for a little while and then they end up hidden in a closet or under the bed. I really need to think long and hard when I make a decision about what Santa will bring her. Any suggestions for an 8 year old girl???

Ok, on with my more usual blogging info...

On this day in history 1908--Henery Ford introduces the Model T, the first mass-produced car. It cost $825. These cars were built between 1908 to 1927. Go to The Henry Ford page at http://www.hfmgv.org/exhibits/showroom/1908/model.t.html to see pictures and read a little more about this classic car.
