Sometimes things go better than planned. WIXYjr was having car problems this past week. The battery kept dying on him. My son in law and I went to where WIXYjr currently lives and put new battery cable ends on his car. I started it up then took it for a drive. While I was at a red light, the radio quit and the dashboard lights went dim. Lights turn green then everything come back on. I got it back to WIXYjr's and shut it off. It wouldn't even turn over again. We figured it was the alternator. I called around and that was going to cost around 300 dollars. We found a salvage yard that worked on cars that had a used one. I took the car in, and he tested everything, tightened the alternator belt, tested it again and charged me 10 dollars. Everything now works better. Can I hear a "praise the Lord"?
Need a laugh? Sometimes the Evil Big Box Store(tm) can supply that for you. Mrs74 and I went there. She had to get some groceries and other items. I finally broke down and got a haircut. That's the thing about the Evil Big Box Store(tm), you can go there buy groceries, clothing, tools, get your oil changed, do your banking, get your nails done, and get a haircut(or style). I'm waiting for them to offer an urgent care center.
I got my haircut and Mrs74 got the items she needed. We are waiting in line to check out and we are behind this lady who did a considerable amount of grocery shopping and for every item she bought, she either had coupons, or ad's from competitors. We switched lines and were behind one other shopper there. We got checked out and the coupon queen was still "negotiating" with her cashier. You know, I wonder if the money that that the coupon queen saved was worth the time she spent going through the ads and the time she spent in line? Things like that give me a chuckle just because I know that there are those around her, including the cashier, who are being extremely irrated as they are spending their valuable time behind this lady. Perhaps there should be a lane there marked "20 coupons or more."
We are enjoying some temperatures in the fifties this weekend. Hopefully the snow will melt away before we get any more.
