Lovely quick and cheap fix, though!
That's the best bit. It didn't cost me a brass farthing!

Considering its age, the car isn't doing too badly, although when something minor is amiss I do wonder if it's a precursor to a catastrophic failure.
If today's problem had been say, a major gearbox or clutch problem, I'd have had to give serious consideration to replacing the vehicle.
It's only done 71,000 miles so, in terms of its age, that's nothing.
Given that I do one grocery shopping trip a week, and the usual litany of hospital and Doc's appointments for Dad, it is only chalking up a total of about a thousand miles a year.
That's why I'm attempting to keep it going. There's no point in shelling out vast sums of money for a new, or newish, car and watching it depreciate by the day on the drive.
Anticipating the worst for this morning, I had a look at the VW website last night and prices for the current version of the Passat Estate are well north of 20,000!*
That's not a road I wish to drive down if it can be avoided.

*$27,000

[aside]

Years ago, a friend of mine in Seattle encountered a chair on the curb near his apartment. The chair had a sign on it: "Take me. I wobble."

My friend took the sign (but not the chair) and displayed it on the front of his refrigerator.

I think of that "Take me. I wobble." sign often. I should wear it on my back at all times.

Printing , matting and framing photographs for a group exhibition. I belong to the New England Large Format Photography Collective and we are having our first museum exhibit in June. It's a big deal for us, having had gallery shows previously but nothing on this scale. The nuseum is even using one of my images for their "Upcoming Exhibitions" web page. I'm so chuffed.

It's Lil' Griff's GraduBirthday weekend! Now I am old. Was given a senior coffee at McD's this week... should I be pleased about the savings?

Wow!! She was single digit age just a moment ago.

Seeing the young mens and womens grow up is a true joy. Being a near-step-grandfather now, I finally see it. I would have demanded to be a parent if I had known how totally freaking amazing it is.
