Well yesterday I to drop the truck off at the garage because I could smell the rear brakes burning (locking up) and the truck pulling to the right in the front. Total damage, $850.00! It needed new shoes and all new hardware for the rear brakes and for the front ones, new pads, calipers, turn the rotors, re-pack all the bearings, new brake hoses. The mechanic said I could have lost my brakes at any time because the brakes hoses were so dry rotted... That would have not been good!

So, tomorrow I'm putting the mini van in the shop for a once over before I head down to Florida and back (about 2000-2500 miles) depending on how much I drive while down there. I do this every time just to be on the safe side of things. Boy, I hope nothing wrong with that one, the last thing I want to do is break down, on I-95 in another state somewhere. That happened to me once about 15 years ago as we were driving to Bush Gardens in Virginia, about 20 miles to go to the hotel, the alternator went up in my old Chevy Blazer right on I-95. Had to get a tow truck to tow it to some garage (Bob's garage in Bob's town; lol...) and it cost me $500.00 for a rebuilt alternator.

Boy, I bet you that guy was licking his chops when he saw those out of state tags, I could have heard him tell the rest of the mechanics there that day, " Ok boys, we got a sucker here, shops closing early today.....", ....

I had all my brakes done last year, fortunately I have a mechanical brother who looks after this stuff. I do need to check all my fluid levels yet before I leave on Saturday

Well, I about thought I was going to fall off the couch from laughing so hard, especially when Nathan lane was trying to walk like John Wayne. I was screaming, laughing so hard, I had tears coming from my eyes and gasping for breath laughing soooo hard. My daughter was rolling around the floor from laughing so hard, I just kept on saying, "that's not right"...

Anyways, when you get the chance watch the movie, you'll pee yourself from laughing so hard....
Oh my goodness, I love that movie. there's so many funny scenes in it. you are so right!!!

I plan on going to Target later this morning, I have a list of things that we need. And while I am there I'm going to pick up a couple of tubes and maybe those noodle thingies to throw in the pool. I read that they may keep the ducks from landing in the pool. We'll see what happens. I also want to stop at the pet store for some new kitty cat toys. So many of their toys seems to vanish, I don't know where they go.
My daughter has her first driving lesson today after school with an instructor. I hope she does well with the private lessons. I just can't teach her. I am a nervous wreck.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!
we did the driving lessons for our daughter & she did great. I think it was worth it. she was much better driving afterwards, & I didn't have to do it! lol

Maybe there must have been some sort of maintenance thing going on or some upgrades with the servers this morning!
Dude, I have issues E v e r y d a y!!!!

HmG, that's a great idea you have about the floats & noodles keeping the ducks out of the water.
what flowers did you guys plant?

Made, I read back in the pages where u thought about going away for a break. UH.......HELLO...... dude, u r so stuck w/ us. If u take a break-we break w/ u. that's ur only option man! besides, who else could keep Seawaters & Coach in line better than u? Nobody!

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It's going to be a hot one here today!!! Ugh. We are looking at a high of 86 with 80% humidity. So needless to say my a/c is going to get a workout. My plans for today involve working on my movie script and then helping my neighbor's granddaughter move a bunch of stuff into storage. Then I'm going to pass out from heat exhaustion. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!

$850 for all of that is pretty good. $500 for a rebuilt alternator is crazy!!!
