I'M NOT DRIVING IT



Despite all the good words, intentions, and efforts of all the local car guys, I’m not driving it.

Yes, the gauge read complete discharge.  Yes, it started once.  Yes, it overheated the trickle charger.  Yes, AAA told us they were having troubles with this made for Chevy batteries. Yes, bot G and the AAA guy agreed that it was probably the alternator.  Yes, out long time mechanic told me, and showed me, that it was charging to manufacturers specs.  Yes, it’s still discharging. 

No, I am not driving it until it is fixed, and I am not happy about it.

  • Herself:  Found a new author.  Showering an off to work.
  • Captain Poolie:  Meeting with her board today.
  • Gratitude’s:  That I’m perky today.

  5. This is maddening. It wouldn't happen to a Honda. All these decades later, and the American companies still can't keep up. That's my take anyway, but I'm a bit grouchy this morning. Stomach aches will do that to a guy.

  6. Hold fast to your standards!! I have started the project of replacing the stove-top and the on-line process and already too tired.

Please, take just a moment to leave me a note. I really appreciate notes.
