Open Thread!!!! Vehicle Probs!!!!

Well, the day has consumed my time.  And, it continues to do so.  I wanted to post a couple of posts, and, I may do so later, but, for right now, I’m busy. 

It’s times like this that I yearn for a generic ‘67 Chevy.

    An oldie but goodie: It’s so cold in Washington D.C. today, that the politicians have their hands in their own pockets.

    Good Luck.

    Shared houses when at uni. One guy had an old Wolseley. It had the generator held on with fencing wire because the fanbelt was too tight for the bolt to fit back in the hole. It truly had chewing gum plugging a hole in the radiator.

    Eventually the luck ran out and the water too when the gum plug fell off and the motor fried.

      I got a tiny leak in a pipe near the bathtub fixed with chewing gum. By now the gum is probably petrified. No probs for a decade.

    The folk in DC never stop thinking of ways to abuse the language.
    Illegal aliens are now referred to as “Americans-in-waiting.”
    Yes. really.

      Here in Germany, the “conservative” CDU called the “refugees” “Zukunftsdeutsche” (future Germans). So I’m referring to myself as “Deutscher Der Vergangenheit” (The German From The Past) since that time. I think it gives me some gravitas.

      (Of course, after they got a flood of sarcastic e-mails the CDU (we usually call it the C*DU, to give it a more Turkish flavor) dropped that moniker quickly).

    The weather has been awful here, too; but [thank God] we were spared the worst of it. Yet, we also had motor vehicle trouble and were stranded for a day. Guess what, we survived! Motto? Always have at least *two* working backups :P.

    I really shouldn’t tell you guys this……but I am!

    We’re 83F, blue skies, light breeze………..been out playing with the yard squirrels in the front yard all day! They’re my little buddies….
