Today I Took The Truck To The Shop.

My husband let my dad use his truck to get gravel this morning.  That means that Tony took my car to get to work. 


Oh well, what's one day, right?  Dad informed me, before he left, that the driver's side door wouldn't close. 

That door has been a bit difficult to close for a while now.  So, I had to take it to the shop this afternoon.  It's gonna need a new latch. 

That will leave us with minus $250. 

And when we want to part with another $250 we need to get the pins and bindings (or whatever they're called) replaced as well.  One thing at a time though.

And the parts won't arrive until Friday. 

So - I get to look forward to trading vehicles again in 3 days.  I wouldn't mind, but I can't take both babies anywhere in the truck.  Only one or the other.  Kind of a nuisance. 

At least they did a temporary fix on the door and it now opens and closes.  And it will be nice to not have to slam that door to get it to stay shut.

I love your label title--too funny. Good luck with getting it fixed. I totally know the feeling. We had to come up with $2500 at the end of the summer to "build me a new transmission." I was not pleased either :) BTW, thanks for dropping by earlier. I will keep you posted on my sewing adventures

That's an expensive latch!

Ugh. Cars are the pits. And yet we love them, need them, can't live without them.
Kinda like men, right?


On the other hand, they're also fun, they make life easier, they can be very good looking after just having been washed (and even sometimes before!).

It's all worth it, isn't it.

those are expensive fixes! but the thing about USA, is that you can't get around without cars or trucks, since there is so little public transportation in MOST areas; at least, that is what i have observed when I first came here.
