First --- that is ONE beautiful rose!

I hate that this is happening to you. I hate to think of your car repossessed. And the lye didn't work. And all this weight is on your shoulders.

I put it in there for you. Fourth of July Climbing Rose. Gitchew one! Smiling

The car is problematic in some ways with the girls. So much running around to get them and the babies where they need/want to be; being without is going to take some juggling. On the other hand, I simply have to stop driving. Dain bramage is making me a danger to myself and others. Although both girls are old enough to drive, both have truancy fines that have to be paid before they can get a driver's license. Texas ties one to the other. So neither could drive the car. I do believe things work out the way they are supposed to. Sometimes, it is just difficult to maintain until the working out is done. Sticking tongue out
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

But are you sure about the reason for your driving "problems"? Stress can make a huge diff. in the brain & Lord knows hon, you got stress out the wazoo here! And what about the meds you take for the MS? do you think they are doing it? Maybe some modification in one or more of them would fix that? I'm just throwing out ideas here. Brainstorming if you will.

I'll leave the roses to you Debra. I see certain ones I love but in general roses are not for me. Shrug! I do however like the old fashioned "wild" ones I see growing wild mostly hanging on old barbed wire fences or old field fences --- generally pink & don't have that many thorns.

Well, then this one surely isn't for you--it is very thorny! I will keep posting photos for you.

I don't take any medication for the MS. Some of the problem could be stress-generated. Worst stress is monetary, of course, hoping at least some of this will ease up if the SS comes through. Sitting at a four-way stop sign intersection waiting for it to change to green is hardly the mark of an attentive safe driver. Sticking tongue out

This has been a complete & major life change for you. Don't discount the overwhelming stress factor involved. You have a gazillion things on your mind these days. That can make a person sit at a 4 way intersection waiting for it to change to green. It really can. But I agree, that's not safe driving conditions.

Yes, I love to look at roses but not grow them myself. That one though knocked my socks off!
