No where at all...pathetic.
I have an RV.
I live in an RV.
This RV & I need to leave this driveway!
I don't know...
So, what have I been up to then? I worked on my jewerly blog yesterday, so put some photo jewelry pieces up & new tabs. As ya'll know, Thursday my van was hauled off for repairs. Good news is, that it was only some kind of transmission relay something or nuther that needed replaced, so the damages weren't that bad after all. But it would not pass inspection. They had to reset the check engine light & the sensors would not read till it was driven 30-60 miles. So I picked it up on Friday. They told me to drive it over the weekend...I was nervous about that. I did not want a ticket for driving with an expired inspection sticker. Soooo, in my fashion, what do I do?? Well, it's 10 miles from the repair shop to the RV. So I drove it home. Then on Sat, I drove it around the 2 mile block 10 times!!! Hahaha. I'm pretty sure folks thought I was nuts. Oh & did you know that turtles can RUN!! Yep, they can. On my 8th go around a red eared slider turkle was crossing the road. I didn't want it to get hit, so I stopped the van, went to pick it up to get it across the road, it RAN!!! Ran under my van & out the other side! But I guess that's as far as it could run.So I picked it up & put it on the grass. Then a guy came walking briskly down his driveway.
Him - Can I help you?
Me - No, I'm just moving a turtle.
Him - Are you lost?
Me - I laugh, no.
Him - Well do you need help?
Me - No.
Him - Are you sure? I've seen you going around this road a few times now!
Me - Now I'm really laughing & thinking oh boy, he's gonna send me to the funny farm! So I tell him that I have to drive the van at least 30 miles to recalibrate it.
Him - Oh ok.
Me - thanks for your concern though!
One of my friends said I should have told him, I'm not lost, just confused...
So I go around 2 more times, then done. And there's a small ranch down the road that has ponies & donkeys. Even the blasted Donkeys are now looking at me going WTF??? Really, I could hear their minds. And of course, this place also had pony parties on weekends for families & their kids. So here I am looking like a predator. Circling the block 10 times. Ok, ya'll can stop laughing at me now! Or with me...cause I was laughing at myself too. But good news, the van ran great!!
A few other things to pass inspection - new windshield wipers. (which were a pia to install), a new low beam head light (which is easy to install), a new lug nut & lug nut stem (forget what it's really called), which they will install. I took van back today. They are to install the lug nut & post. And inspect the van for the inspection. I also asked for an oil change & new air filter. So she'll be good to go -- hopefully! They didn't get to fix it today, they said they were waiting for a lift to lift it onto so they can change the lug nut & post. Van is nearly as heavy as my RV! No one here wants to work on it or do oil changes on it. Probably also because it's a hi-top & doesn't fit in most garages. It's old, but it's paid for & mine. As is the RV. As am I...yes, I'm paid for too. I was way cheaper when I was born than kids are now! :-p
So maybe tomorrow, I will get my van back. A friend of mine calls it "The Green Hornet". Actually it did have a hornet's nest in it!! I had my trusty vacuum as I was vacuuming it & a hornet got sucked into the vacuum. Then the nest. Then a few more hornets. Then I wilted because I'm allergic to them, but I was brave. A brave Sucker. And the tow truck driver was happy too when I told him I saved him from them going after him too.
Here is my van parked beside my RV when I still lived in Galveston County. It snowed that day! Really! A rare snowstorm in 2008.
The van says, what the heck is this stuff?
