Good morning. It's early, but it's going to be a sticky warm day. And another busy one. It's all about keeping the car healthy and I hope it's all over today.
Yesterday I took the car in for a check up and to get a new safety sticker. Well, back that up a bit. Pogo and I went out to get into the car. But the car would not start. The (new) battery was dead. This is very frustrating. Now I had to call and have my appointment changed till 1 p.m.
After a couple hours on the phone with the extended warranty insurance company, I finally got someone local to come out and start my car. The other company wanted to send a truck to tow my car. I did not need a tow truck, I needed the battery jump started.
Once the car had been running for a while, Pogo and I got in and headed for the auto dealership. On the way, I noticed the light on my dashboard telling me that the trunk was not closed properly. I pulled over to fix this problem, but could not.
When we got to the dealership, one of the staff helped to get the trunk closed properly. The light on the dash went out. But then another light came on. The engine light. Because the engine light has come on I cannot get a new safety sticker. Instead I will get a rejection sticker.
The car had it's regular check up, and they tried to diagnose the car's problem. It seems that the computer module in the car needs to be replaced. By now, it was late in the afternoon, so I had to make a new appointment for this morning. So, in a little while, I will be heading back to the dealership.
Some days it just never ends.
It's time for me to get dressed to leave now, but fist I want to share a fun little video that I took a couple days ago on one of my steps. It's about a very busy ant and how determined he is to get his job done.
I watched this ant for a while, and he did finally get his prize off the steps and onto the ground. He then made it over to the other side of the yard to wherever he was planning to take his prize. You gotta give this little guy credit for sticking to the job even though it was a tough one.
Now I'm off to start another "car" day. So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay cool and have a fantabulous day.
