    Totally amazing movie, btw. Funny and good for taking a girlfriend to.
    You donít suck, but your friends might.
    I saw this with my 17 year old son who is generally too cool to hang with dad.
    Climbing may be our only common ground until he ages a bit more.

    Monday... father in law shows up... thrown belt/broken water pump three miles out, he drives it the rest of the way here, pushing steam. Car to shop Tuesday, new water pump, hope for the best. Tuesday afternoon, wife’s grandmother (other side) passes away. Wednesday, get car back. Today, wife/s new(ish) minivan has a battery go south. FIL attempts to drive ten hours home... make it 30 miles, dash lights up, car knocking, dunzo. Go save the wife, give her my truck, put new battery in van in parking lot, go get FIL at car shop, get him a rental, he’s on his way.

    What a day.

    Don’t drive your car if it doesn’t have coolant. It never ends well. Amazing how many people think they can push it an extra few miles after the lights come on... this is the third time I’ve seen it.

    And it won’t stop raining. I am so tired of the trainer.

    Amen, brother. I ruined a perfectly good Subaru boxer motor that way. I promise not to do it again.

    Hope what's left of this week swings the needle the other way and rocks your world.

    Cheers, Tee Aitch.

    Was snow, now ice, then rain at 3AM.

    Sounds like someone outside throwing rice and pebbles at the house.

    Sorry, not on topic but this reminded me of a time and place far, far away. We'd purchased our very first "new" car. A Jeep Grand Cherokee. She came limping into the driveway, car making all kinds of noise. Oil light was on. "I drove straight home" she said.

    Apparently I chapped somebody else's @ss just now in a meeting. I couldn't stop myself. "OK, can you clarify? That's four AM Sunday morning? Not four PM Sunday morning?"
