We are up quite early this morning, things seem so quiet after all the turmoil and dare we say excitement of Wednesday. The sky is overcast with a slight early morning mist hanging in the air. The birds are just as chirpy as ever though, just a reminder to us that summer is far from over, well at least not just yet. To go outside the building today, one wouldn’t suspect or detect a thing out of place from the norm. The episode of the guy upstairs is over, and finished as far as we the bystanders are concerned at least, although special service crews are still working with the aftermath. ~ Life goes on.
Today we are up and at it for different reasons, I give a slight grimace when I say that, for at this point in time I don’t know what the end of this day may bring.
For a short while now our ‘Baby’ the wife’s ‘pet’ has been acting just a little strange of late. So today’s the day we had to take her in and get things checked out, hoping of course not to hear the worst.
The ‘baby/pet in this family is of course not a child or an animal but our truck!
At this point you may smile, I had you thinking there for a while at least didn’t I? As I was saying the truck has been acting a little rough for at last a week so Dave, that’s our mechanic took her in to give her the once over. I’m biting my tongue for I’m obviously hoping the news isn’t so expensive, at least not this time around, she was ready for an oil change anyway.
Turns out so far, they did the oil and lube, and we had to have a brake job on the front end $250. As far as the original clunk noise/ hard shift, well we still have that and so tomorrow it’s off to the transmission shop on a wing and a prayer !
Don’t even want to think about the possibilities with that one tonight. Yelp!
