My Son, he is making me happy today. He is just few months older.

What's making you happy today?
 
Got m'car back from the car doctor yesterday afternoon.

New drums, shoes, spring kit for the rear. Apperently, there was a miscommunication and no work was done under the hood, so, I still have the intermittent very high idle issue. If/when I take care of that, that'll be everything mechanical that needs attn.

I was expecting a very large bill, but got out for under $200.

That's not bad at all! Half the time they charge that much just to look at you sideways.

agreed.

Wish I could lend you bikerboi -he's a dab hand on the engine side of things, but you're a tad far away. He bought a "project" bike this summer for $700 including a shitload of spare parts and tools that he had to push to the workshop (my garage), has only spent a few hours actually working on it (several more on research, I think) and maybe $100, but has done all sorts of weird shit like changing the diameter of some holes on the carbs so all the cycles are correct (do I sound like I understood ll that he told me? ;) ) and now he's riding it as his regular bike. Reckons it's worth a few $K. He does similar things with cars too. Weirdo.

oops that turned into a rambling brag, didn't mean it to, but he does impress me. His money sense outside of cars and bikes is for shit tho..... :D

I was ok with the bill, but it really was just a glorified rear brake job...[/meh] I was expecting fair-to-serious problems.

Not to mention the fact that I know the guy. Prolly charged me extra cuz he knows me!:lol2:

monster 09-16-2020 01:21 AM

$200 for any brake job is pretty unheard of up here.....

Not bad for a drum job but I wonder what took so long. I guess he figured he could slide it down the priority list because you couldn't come yell at him... he had your car. ;)

That is a cool brag. If he's ever bored he can come rebuild my Dad's Farmall H.

You can save a lot of money by walking around to face them. Mechanics hate that one simple trick.

Gravdigr 09-17-2020 04:45 PM

Noted.

wear scarves, with summer here the same 5 dresses, but different scarves, changes it up!

Also, keep a list of things you need. Great idea...

Also have a couple go - to outfits, when you can't find anything else.. I have some that are comfy and cute, so when I'm feeling bloated or the days that nothing works, they always do! :)

Bit of a non-sequitur there, Metalhead, but welcome!
