I have had my car for about 9 years. I love my car. I have taken very good care of it.
Sure, there have been an occasional race(s) and burnin' of tires but all in all, I have done well at taken care of it.
Like a momma bear with her cub!
It's first assault was the BossMan's son....he was 4ish and out climbin' on it!
I went running out there to pull him off!!!
Whew....Only a surface scratch!
Over the years, things have had to be replaced...water pump...heater hose....none of it cheap!
But the ongoing battle is with the RainGods....And I never win...ever!
When I get to work, I sit in my car and listen to the radio for a bit and decide if I should roll the windows down or not. I don't want it to be so hot when I get in later that I burn my legs on the seat!! Seems reasonable!
One would think that would be an easy decision....no clouds...sunny skies....the weather map looked good....Let's put the down.
Or it's cloudy....with a chance of rain.....leave them up.
It doesn't work that way in Oklahoma.....in the spring!!! It can be the most beautiful day and in an instant a rain shower will pop up. A nice soft gentle rain...no thunder....no lightning....no warning.
9 times out of 10...my car windows are down! In fact, I can almost guarantee that if I roll my car windows down that it will rain!
No clouds....car windows down....it will rain!
I have told people that if they really want it to rain all I have to do is leave my windows down! They laugh...add "and wash it!" HA HA HA!
Washin' it doesn't seem to work....my MoJo doesn't work that way....it's just car windows!
I can be sittin' at the desk diligently workin'....or emailin' friends....look up at the front door and it looks like clear skys....look out the big window to the left and it's rainin'! I can see it in the trees!!!
Soft gentle rain.....look over to the car.....with the windows down.......Shit a Brick!!!
I grab my purse...dig out the keys and head out there. I keep a towel in there so I can wipe down the inside.
It is a fact of life I have learned to live with....NOT to not leave the car windows down...but that I have bad MoJo!!! That little scenario I just describe to you happen Saturday!!!
WE had to go around the barn but HERE is where this whole story ties together.....every time the RainGods sense my windows are down and it rains....it rains on my electronic do-hickeys!!!
More to the point...the button that powers up the window....the one on the driver's side!!
Is that addin' insult to injury??!!!
Oh There's more...........
