It's Always Something


What a way to end the year. No sooner had AAA towed our Ford Escape off to the dealers than The Mister noticed that our only remaining vehicle, his little truck, not only had a flat tire-it also had sprung a major leak. I spent the day talking The Mister off the ledge while trying to figure out if replacing power steering lines was something we could tackle ourselves. The jury is still out until we get the lowdown on the Escape. We were out looking at Christmas lights on Monday night when all the gauges stopped working and all the warnings came on. We've got no big plans for tonight but I'm pretty sure there will be booze. For The Mister at least.  2020 is sure going out with a bang.


  1. Oh no! I stared and stared at that photo trying to figure out what I was looking at. Ha! Maybe rent a car until you get the escape back and then send the truck in for repair? No way would I tackle power steering lines, but then, about all I can do is put gas in the car.
    I hope it's good news and can be fixed quickly.

  2. Wishing you and the Mister a very happy 2021.

  3. Sorry to hear about your car trouble! I always feel so nervous about that because I really no nothing about cars and feel I am going to be taken advantage of! Hope it is easily sorted out and doesn't cost too much!
    Best wishes for a happier New Year!

  4. Dang! I hope you’re able to get both vehicles repaired without breaking the bank.

  5. Nightmare re your cars! There will be booze involved in our New Years celebrations too!
    Wishing you and all your family a very happy and peaceful New Year, Jillxx

  6. Oh gee! Here's hoping 2021 brings better things

  7. Not a great way to end the year. Hope the news is good for BOTH cars.

    We ended with needing some roof repairs and a tree down. One of our cedars uprooted itself this afternoon. Guess 2020 didn't want to leave without one last surprise.

    Hope 2021 is uneventful for ALL of us. Enjoy that "adult beverage" tonight!

  8. Well does it help to think you can't go anywhere anyway so going without a car isn't as painful as it could be! lol Seriously, sorry for the break downs!
