Listing to the Right...



Took Nate (my SUV), who is named after Nate Romanowksi of CJ Box novels fame, in to get his tires rotated yesterday.  Then off to the garden center to peruse the trees and pickup a few veggie plants for my little front yard.  As I was walking around I noticed that I seemed to be listing quite heavily to the Right.  What the heck.  
Got home, unloaded my purchases, still listing to the Right. Now I'm getting a bit puzzled. Put my purse on the kitchen counter, where it went thunk! Hmm...




Took out my receipts to file, and decided it might be time to take inventory of it's contents:
small wallet
reading glasses
pen
note pad
tube of lipstick
lip balm 
bandaides
Solatac P.T.K.
hemostat
tape measure
pepper gel spray
pocket knife
phone
 all things that are normal carry for me. Digging deeper I found the cause of the listing to the right, three rocks from the NE Fork of Elk Creek! Removing the extra ballast to the coffee table, and replacing the rest, I'm once again closer to center.

  1. I'm relieved. I thought it might be that you broke your right six inch heel.

    1. I've never liked backpack purses, cross body would work though.

  5. Funny. I love rocks. I do carry a very small purse to eliminate temptation.

    1. I wish I could say this was the first time, it was not.
      I like rocks, stacking rocks, shiny rocks...

    2. Round rocks are my addiction and I have baskets full of them in oregon and here. Not all creeks produce them...

    3. Usually round ones do it for me, too. This time the triangle shaped one, on top the rock stack, was the one that stood out to me.

  6. Cute purse! Love the style and color. Yes, rocks in a purse can cause you to list to one side.

    1. Thanks, it's a real leather "The Sak". Found at Goodwill for $6.
      Trying to carry a little less these days but that doesn't seem to be happening...

  9. Hahaha, that's funny! My purse is also heavier than normal. I dug down in it looking for a small tube of glue I carry (just in case) and found the cause was the pendulums and keys for two oak kitchen clocks! I've been trying to find them for 2 months, but since I rarely go out now to need my purse, I never thought of looking there.
