I finally finished the Mexican Red series of stories. Now I have to get them all together and start making a book.
The truck transmission went out again. I cleaned it out and put a for sale sign on it. After twelve years I've gotten attached, but as George Harrison said, All things must pass.
You can’t say you didn’t give it your best shot.
Are you changing mechanics too?
The Transmission shop was a rip-off. It has been there for at least 15 years and has a lovely web site. I would never go back.
You could say that their business is slipping. Quite a shifty bunch. Better clutch your wallet as they’re geared up for the rip-off .
Got that off my chest. Now what about a replacement? Any leads?
We're looking for a deal. Nothing solid yet. I went to Capitol One and prequalified, but I haven't found a deal I like.
… but as George Harrison said, All things must pass.
He also sang “Isn’t It a Pity”
Lol. Just like Ragman. Should we deal with him now, or later?
I probably can't get what I want for the truck, but it's worth a lot to me. I would just keep it if nobody pays enough.
Fingers crossed. Finding a new or used car around these parts is crazy expensive. I guess it's the chip shortage I've read about making even used vehicles a fortune.
I've been running into that. WE live on a fixed income, so I need a really good deal while needing a decent vehicle.
We are still just getting it organized. We've done lots of on line browsing. I've been asking a few friends and a couple of mechanics. Still gathering decent size of down payment money before getting too involved with most of them.
To raise some money Southend United Football Club decided to sell spobsorship of its West Stand.
The successful bidder was a local company called Gilbert and Rose.
Now the club are in a dilemma because they can't call it The Gilbert and Rose West Stand.
The name might not mean anything to Americans, but Rosemary West and her husband Fred are a notorious pair of serial killers.
It would be the same as naming a baseball stand after Jeffrey Dahmer.
The team are looking for axway out, the stand is still sponsored by Gilbert and Rose, but neither the club, nor the sponsor want their name on there.
When it's resolved I'll post an update.
I would call it the Gilert and Rose Occidental Stand.
Today begins a third week without me picking up the street trash. It looks increasingly trashy. True to my vow, if I step over a bit of trash I resist the urge to pick it up.
Good. They don't deserve you, and never did.
If they got together and offered me a steady influx of folding money I might reconsider.
