Murphy Won The International Championship

Started hearing a small noise...

Sooo... Detached in the Thunder Valley Casino Parking lot and took the old '99 dodge mouse farm to a tire shop to check things out...

Small noise was a bad caliper that came apart... Which, while it was eating the rotor on the left side, hid the sound of a bad bearing disintegrating on the other side at the same time... which all together masked the vibration of a failing tie rod end... Ooooofffff...

Bottom line... We're robbing Peter to pay Paul... And rolling one poor old drunk who made the mistake of stumbling past the Les Schwab shop at the wrong time.

Older, thinner and juuuust a bit poorer.

A fresh copy of an old story. The consequence of living with man made things.

Bummer. Hate those surprises. Part of 'it' I guess, we've had two of 'em so far. That is repair surprises, the TAX BILL would be three and it was by far the worst of all. Plans for recovery are in the works. Hang in there.
