Broken Cars are a Major Pain

>> Sunday, January 25, 2009

There's certainly no good reason for being gone for so long from blogland, only lame excuses and I'm always full of those, but I'll spare you.  


You're welcome. 

Ummm,  I can't. Because If I don't put my excuses down I'll have nothing to say. And besides, it might make someone feel blessed if they realize it's someone else's turn to have everything fall apart.

I am having car woes, sung in a Major Key. I put out a Major Expenditure on a Major Tune-up and instead of running better, it almost immediately started having Major Problems. The power steering pump exploded or something and I had to get towed to the dealer.   (Major thanks to Andrea  [Precious Daughter1] for the incredible Aid and Comfort In a Time of Need.)

They did Major work on that, the brakes, a serpentine belt (I think they make these things up) and who knows what all and I paid a Major, Major Bill. I got most of the way home when the back end started grinding. No way!  They assured me it was fine, but fine it most certainly was not and just a few days later I had to be towed again and we are waiting to see how major these damages are.  I'm afraid I'm going to end up paying on this car until three years and ten months after I'm dead and gone. 

Whew. 

But I do have pictures.

Were you, you know, going to post said pictures?

I hope your Vehicle Woes are over soon. It kind of stinks when you can't do cool things for lack of a car.

Even though I understand most of it I found how to translate the text into swedish (as you do when you translate my blogg)Oh it was fun, not perfekt translation I guess but thats why it was so fun.
I am glad that you finally wrote something on your blogg.
When something happends with our cars, guess who is driving?

Oh dear...that is awful!!! One thing after the other going wrong is just too much!!
Do you think that the people who worked on it the last time did something cause the most recent breakdown?? I would surely chicet into it if I were you.

Good luck and I am so sorry.
Hugs, Lura

upps, I don't know how I typed "chicet" instead of check... I meant check it out.

I read your comment on Handbook of Nature Study and it cracked me up. You are a good writer! It would be fun to be friends with you - you'd keep me laughing.
