Fine. I want it.

Lol, funny. The radio station I listen claimed the 2nd Tuesday in Aug, at 2p is the absolute worst moment of the year. Aug cuz worst month, hot, not much sports activity. 2nd Tues cuz a lot of Aug left, and Tuesdays are the worst day of week. And 2p cuz that's the worst time of day, lunch over, sleepy, and still 3 more hours of work.

Home inspection today on the house I have under contract. Didn't go well, previous water damage and current leaking mechanicals is enough for me to walk. Bummer thought I had a golf course view for a week or so. Still marketing my house but I have a replacement property contingency. Any incoming contracts allow me time to find replacement within 20 days. It's the new thing here. Market so hot sellers don't want to be caught without a place to go.

Was at the course yesterday and when I came back to my car an hour later the car wouldn't start!

Only 1 y 4 m old with 14k kilos on it.. Took it in and te dealer had its electricity cut, and they told me they don't give loaners until after 73 hours of them not fixing problem.

Only thing going for me is that I'll only have to cover half the cost of a new battary install and I live in the city where not having a car for a few days is not a big deal!

Just hate not having my Chevy!

Just curious. What does that mean?

Every time I see an Evinrude boat motor I think of the book In the Lake of the Woods by Tim O'Brien. He's mostly known for The Things They Carried, but we read ITLOTW in high school one year and I liked it so much I've re-read it a few times. Very weird book, but oddly interesting, and a pretty quick read.

There's a boat in the book with an Evinrude motor, and the narrator always refers to it as "the Evinrude," and I remember having to look that up the first time I read it.

Anyway...

Sorry, I should have been more specific. They didn't have any electricity in the whole building, and what I heard while I was there was that the main electric line cable was cut.. I'm not sure if it was from construction orbit was an act of revenge!

I was lucky that I convinced them to take my car in manually as they tried to convince me for almost 45 minutes that because the systems are down they can't receive any cars!

Ah, I got it now. :-D

 

Needing a battery and the "electricity cut" thing threw me.

 

I've been working on my old tractor (that I haven't cranked in 4 years) for 3 days and finally got it going today. Had to replace the battery, change the points, plugs, and wires. Still wouldn't run. Then I completely cleaned out the gas tank which was full of rust and gummed up tar (major pain in the @ss). Went to crank it and noticed that gas was pouring out of the carburetor. Had to take it off, take it apart, and clean all of the parts and make new gaskets.

 

That did the trick and it ran like a charm but I'm hoping that's the end of the mechanic work for a while.

Switched over to Bell's new Fibe finer optic network for cable, internet and phone. Price was right and I get about 3 times the channels I had with my old provider. I hate Bell with a passion and was pretty reluctant to make the change but the wife kept cajoling. 

 

I wonder how long it'll be before I want to punch one of their customer service reps in the face.
