Favorite Things

"Mom, I went to get the new tires put on last night in the storm and they're done", said my son when I answered the phone.

"Good.  Now it will drive better in the snow," was my response.

Continuing on he said, "Mom, I'm not done.  It was spitting out antifreeze when I got there.  They said you need to replace the water pump and thermostat.   But don't get it done at this place, Mom.  They're too expensive.  I can have my mechanic look at it and give you a much better price."

"Really?  Are you sure?  Bring it when you have the time and then let me know what I owe you," I responded.

Two days later...a new water pump and thermostat had the old '98 Wrangler kicking heat like there was no tomorrow!!  And the price had me smiling!

It's nice to have children that care and help...:)


Sharing some family time with you and

So sweet that he takes care of stuff like that for you. Car troubles are no fun. You sound like me. When I get a vehicle, I tend to keep it forever! Glad you have a Wrangler!

Yes, it is. Aren't you glad you moved back near them!

Our two don't live close but we know they would be here if we needed them.

It is lovely that you are being looked after. By the way, that's a lovely Christmas Cactus you've got in the window. Looks really healthy from what I can see.

And this winter with all the very cold temps it's sooooo important to have a vehicle running properly. No one wants to be caught on the side of the road!

I was so sad when I moved and left my old mechanic as he was so reasonable and super nice but thankfully we found somewhere up here that's as reasonable and friendly. It's always great to have a dependable mechanic.
