Monday Morning

Sorry about the lack of entries lately. It's too hot to Blog.

Last night my automatic transmission wasn't kicking into second gear, so today I have to find a nearby greasemonkey to add some fluid.
I'm hoping that's all it is. It's too hot for car troubles.

How's your weather?

It's been muggy and obnoxious. Yesterday was finally nice, but we're returning to more of heat and humidity this week. Why did I ever leave Santa Cruz?? WHY??

hot nuff for ya...?

probably the only thing I don't miss about Texas.

actually, it's been in the mid 80's to 90's up this way...quite unusual for us, for sure...though it usually gets a bit warm round the first weekend or so of August...must be because of Blues Fest...nothing like hot weather mixed with 15,000 sweaty drunk fat white guys listening to the "blues" with nothing to be sad about except the mortgage payment on their lake property and spanking new $30K harley...

My car was perfectly normal when I took it in to be checked...but the mechanic said the shifting trouble I had "could indicate troubles to come.."
:(

"Could indicate troubles to come..." Is that car-speak for we're all gonna die someday??

Sooo... it's too hot to blog. What DO you do when it gets that hot? We're in the 90s here with scattered thundershowers. Ugh. I've been sorting out stuff in my air conditioned space and listening to books on tape. And we go and sit in the White River and throw the ball for the swimming Maddie-dog, too.

Y tu?

The good news is, my mechanic offered to buy my car. Lord knows he knows that it's mechanically sound, transmission notwithstanding.
What I do when it's hot is not think clearly. My thoughts are muddled when the thermostat is too high.
Even the lake near my house is too humid to visit. No outdoors for me in this weather.

If you even think you're transmission is acting funny, its a gonner. Its not bad enough that its freakin' expensive to fix, but once fixed you can't brag about it, like when you get a new stereo or cool rims. You sound like an idiot saying, "I just paid $500000000 for a new transmission." You may as well be saying "would you like to go out with me, I just paid a fortune to replace my worn down old hair plugs."

And hasn't the auto guy already warned you that its going out? Sell that car now, don't delay, the transmission is probably worth more than the car.
