Fix It, Fix It Real Good

Friday, September 7th, 2012


I'm not married to a mechanic.  But you wouldn't know that, would you?


What?  You don't rig up the engine of your broken car by hanging straps in your garage beams?  Pshahh!  Whatev!


Why yes, it is dangerous!   Ain't skeered!  Ok, I lie!  I hid in my room while this was going on.



That's me yelling for mercy. I don't handle broken stuff as well as the normal gal. I fret and stress. But when I hear drilling and strange noises from my garage … I can't help but get a little nervous.  After seeing these photo's, do you blame me?

Somehow the problem with Ally's car is buried under all that engine stuff. The rigging up of a homemade engine holder upper was his only choice.

I had to leave.

Please somebody tell me other husbands have great ideas too??

After many nights of shade tree mechanic work, the car is still not right but the assistants are top notch, of course.


Yes, that's my beautiful prissy girl under her own car!!  She'll help her dad with anything.  Even in her pj's.

I think I've finally talked hubby into calling a mechanic friend for help. Maybe soon we'll be back to driving our own cars.

The last few weeks have been like a test.  Plumbing issues, 3 different car problems and some whacky virus or something (me). Thank goodness it's Friday, right?

May your weekend be filled with flushing toilets, running cars and a healthy immune system!
