PostSubject: It's been a long week...   Thu May 21, 2015 2:57 am

First off about 7 days ago we discovered our used car had oil in the radiator water... affraid
A car mechanic said it would be an expensive fix of up to $1200.00

So I made the decision to purchase another used car... Well 5 days after purchasing it the transmission went on it... affraid

In the meantime I took our first car that had oil in the radiator water to two other car mechanic garages for 2nd and 3rd opinions. Well turns out $300.00 would fix it... scratch

So first car is in auto mechanic garage right now getting fixed and our second car we just bought is back at
the car dealership getting transmission fixed as we had a 90 day warrenty on the car...

So what a week! Shocked
Two cars and were still walking... lol!

Jim, this is why you need to get yourself a private car mechanic, ask family and friends if they know of any. My dad has his own private mechanic at very reasonable prices, he always comes out on time and does a very thorough job. My dad has used his service for years. Try looking in the Yellow Pages for a local one Wink

Hopefully a better week to come.
Also try a small independent local garage who will be looking to earn your trust and future business. Something the big garages fail to do through arrogance.

lol! lol! lol!  @  Hawkeye!
That gave me a chuckle...


Sadly things got worse... Rolling Eyes
Our big TV blew up! Electric power went out and came back on quickly and
it smoked it! Mad
Yes even though it was plugged into a surge protector! scratch

A few months ago we bought a used TV to use as a backup so we hooked it up
and it ran for about 36  hours before the picture went from full screen to 1 inch tall... No

Oh then we got a FROST May 22 which killed all our backyard flowers... Shocked

Pinch me I've gotta be dreaming.... lol!

Oh damnit Jim you've had some bad luck mate. Hopefully it picks up again well regarding the TV have you heard the old Springsteen song "52 channels and there's nothing on", well that's usually about right so you probably haven't missed much. But joking apart I hope you get yourself a new one and doesn't cost you an arm and a leg Shocked and then your flowers Nooooooooooo now that has really pulled on my heartstrings that is the pits. Jack frost is a mean pixie albino hope to see the new ones when you get them established flower Wink take it easy mate they send these things to test us Mad

Don't worry, Jim, that gloomy cloud will lift and fade away soon. Everything is balanced in life (yin yang), there will be a sunny time coming soon Wink

I would get some potted flowers and plant them where the original ones were in a few weeks time. At the moment it's all flowers at my HQ, nothing beats that beautiful and cheerful color during spring/summer. Don't forget, you've always got A.M.M.O to make you happy.. chin up and forwards! Smile

I replaced all the dead backyard flowers...

And we are using a real small TV we forgot we had so that will work for now...

No word on the car yet...Place where we bought the car is waiting to see if the
insurance will fix it... We took out 3 months worth of insurance on the car...
But insurance companies try to weasel out of paying all the time! Mad
We only had car for 6 days before transmission quit...

My wife just started having trouble with her blood sugars dropping to low so been helping her deal with that situation...

I have a small brain tumor and brain cyst that they found back in 2010. We had a car accident and when they did a Cat Scan to check and see if I had a brain they showed up.
But anyhow I have MRI's every so often to check and see if they have grown. Just recently I had a MRI and it showed it has NOT grown since 2010 so that was great news!
(I was kinda worried after having all this bad luck hit us...)
