Well the cold snap has passed and we have survived without any broken pipes or power failures. Our brand new roof gutters have survived the ice storm and they did fill up completely with ice but hung in there.
Now it's just rain at about 50f.
Got the email from Ford I've been waiting for officially allowing me to order my reserved Lightning pick-up truck. Went down to the dealer to order the build options and after settling on all the extras I wanted was told the price increase of the base model went up almost $6000.
I politely told them no thanks, I'll keep my ole Mazda.
I still have a reserve on a Tesla Cybertruck, but I will probably pass away before it hits the market.
The old Mazda ('86) has 374k miles on it and now has become a personal challenge to push it to half a mill. Looks like crap, never wash it. Got stolen a few years back, but they brought it back that night with some gas in it.
Great farm truck though. Taught four grandkids how to drive a stick shift in it. Couldn't bang it up any more than it already was. Other drivers kept their distance, wouldn't even park next to it.
What the hell, if and when it stops I'll just ease it over to the side of the road and call an Uber. Only paid $1200 for it back in '98.
I will take the Weinersnitchel hot dog off the antenna to keep the memories alive.
No fuss, no mess, just walk away.
The thread is open. What's on your mind?
