Living In A Car-Wordpress Post-Aug 6,2017~Rachel Holbert-Jones

Update: Since I'm updating my wordpress blog/Photo blog at Haunted Abandoned Carolinas and changing things up on that blog I decided to move the post here which is where it should have been all along.

There's not a whole lot I can offer as far as information when it comes to living in a car. I haven't done everything I could to stay under the radar.
Here's a good article on living in a car although I don't agree with everything he says. Much of it is widely accepted regarding living in a car which I don't agree with which I will touch on in a later article. Being Prepared To Live In Your Car Successfully
One of the things I know I need to improve is hanging around the walmart parking lot in the morning. I know it's best to leave after using the bathroom and cleaning up a bit but I've gotten into the habit of sitting in the parking lot much longer than needed. Usually at night I hook up to their wifi and watch…

What happens if you put your transmission in PARK while driving 65 mph ?...Rachel Holbert Jones

After I wrote this post I realized I could share it to blogger which is cool. It puts the video right into the post. But I left the link in case you'd like to watch his other videos or subscribe.

So I find this video on youtube here. The man is talking about what happens when you put your car in park while driving. He says he's gotten alot of questions regarding this. I guess people wonder what would happen. I certainly don't recommend shifting into park or reverse while driving.

I can tell you what happens if you do it. Many years ago while my parents and I were making a 700 mile trip, my mother was driving down the interstate and she and my dad got into an argument and he told her to stop the car. She ignored him and continued driving. He got mad and shoved the shifter(automatic transmission Ford) from drive into park while she was doing maybe 55 Mph. She had slowed down when they started arguing. I can tell you, it was awful…

I Set My Ex Out On The Freeway-Cocoa Beach, Fl~Rachel Holbert Jones

Following my last two posts My Ex Husband & Uncle's In Dresses and My Ex Husband In Partial Drag-Halloween I'm following up with this post. Why? I'm on a path of reminiscences. As I was going through the photos looking for my ex in his halloween dress I found many, many more of him(us) on different occasions. It's amazing how much you accumulate over the years.
Anyway, one year, shortly after his friend George moved to Cocoa Beach, Florida we decided to take a trip down there so he could see him. He thinks of him as a brother. Me, not so much. He's a meddler that interfered in our relationship to the point that he was one of the reasons that my ex and I called it quits. That and my ex chasing after and befriending some woman that worked at a grocery store he regularly bought his beer at. She was a gold digger. This is another story entirely.
On the day we were leaving Cocoa(I have no use for George and didn't st…

My Ex Husband In Partial Drag-Halloween~Rachel Holbert Jones

Following my last post My Ex Husband & Uncle's In Dresses I decided to followup with this post where he's(my ex) dressed in partial drag. It was halloween and it was a day or two after he went to his favorite gas station(Exxon-Energy Mart on Four Season's Blvd in Hendersonville NC) to show off his costume because a couple of people he knew there didn't see him on halloween and didn't see his costume so he only put on part of it. He didn't want to go all out and put on the dress. Again, he is one of the ugliest women I think I've ever seen. He tried hitching a ride on the street corner but there were no takers. Also, my uncle's in their dresses were for a benefit with the VFW many, many years ago. I was about 10 years old at the time and no, I'm not telling anyone my age. Suffice it to say, I'm 29 and holding. Just like Mom. She stayed 29 her entire life. By Rachel Holbert-Jones **** sassygrrl32

My Ex Husband & Uncles In Dresses~Rachel Holbert Jones

Now one might wonder why I'd write about this. One might even wonder why I was thinking about it. After the last post I was thinking about what a good cook my aunt is and that she learned some of it from an African-American lady in her VFW group although this woman only enhanced what my aunt already knew because my Grandmother and Great Grandmother were great cooks. Then I remembered one time while my parents and I(I was about 10 years old at the time) were staying with my aunt and her husband(he's deceased now) in Jacksonville, Fl. And my aunt was showing Mom and I some photos taken at a benefit her husband was at where they(the VFW guys) were all wearing dresses. It was hilarious. They had their mustaches, beards and hair on their chests poki

Car Decals~Rachel Holbert Jones

So yesterday I'm going into Dollar Tree and a lady with her granddaughter asks me about my car decals. The girl especially likes them. The grandmother said she was 18 but she looked much younger, maybe 13 or 14. She seemed very shy. She looked more like a boy than a girl and I could be wrong but I think grandma referred to her as a boy when we first started chatting, leading me to think the girl may have been trans-gendered which is none of my business and I have no opinion one way or the other. What each person does is his or her business and I'm not one to tell(think is a better term because I would never tell a stranger what I think or don't) anyone what he/she should or shouldn't do. Grandmother was quite talkative and friendly. The girl was enamored with the stickers on my car and the stuffed animals. I only put the stickers on the rear glass. The Ford Focus I have has the stickers on one of the front fenders where my …

Jeep Wrangler With Angry Bird Grill~Rachel Holbert Jones

So, I'm walking out of Lowes, I get in my car and this is sitting directly across from me. A Jeep Wrangler with the angry bird grill. As I said in the last post this is what I really wanted but I didn't find any Jeep's I liked, the ones I found were out of my price range, I didn't find any with the angry bird or wild boar grill and that's what I wanted. A Jeep with the grill already installed. And then there's the gas mileage. That doesn't stop me from having Jeep envy or rather angry bird envy.
I don't particularly like the dark green on this one but I love the grill. I snapped the photo just minutes before the guy came out and left with a woman I presume was his Mother. By Rachel Holbert-Jones ***** sassygrrl32
