Uncle Willie's taxi service was in full swing today.
My Neighbor, Jenni, had a car problem. I told her husband I would take her to work and then come back and diagnose the problem.
When Steph's alarm went off at 620 I was up.
At 730 I got Heath up. We got dressed and headed out.
Once I got Jenni to work heath and I wen to BoJangle's for breakfast. With food in our hands, I came back to look at her car. It had a random misfire on cylinders 2 and 4. I pulled the spark plugs and #2 was broken. So I ran to Auto-zone and got some.
With new plugs the #2 misfire went away, but #4 was still there. I pulled #3 and 4 ignition coils and swapped them. The misfire went to cyl #3. So I called her and told her she needed an $80 coil.
Heath and I loafed around till about 1 then we left for Conover. We stopped at Wendy's because he was saying he was hungry.
I got to Steph's school at 130. Heath needed to be there at 2 so they could leave and go to Virginia.
We went to the playground where some other teachers kids were playing. I immediately had 5 little boys following my every step. They were all fighting and throwing things till I got there. I never said a word to them, but I guess the sight of a 6'5" (with my boots on) 300 pound man straightened them up. We all played cars and then at 2 I had to leave. I am sure they went home and told thier parents they played with a giant.
I headed back to the resturant Jenni works at and picked her up. She was walking lopsided because her back was messed up. Of course at that time I got a call from a guy about the Power King and couldn't get him off the phone.
I drove over to the ABC store and he was still talking. I finally got him off and I went in and got a bottle Makers 46.
We then went to AutoZone. We got her part and headed back.
In a few minutes I had the coil installed and the car was running like a Swiss watch. Her TPMS light was on so I drove it across the street to air up the tires.
My air gauge said it had 46 pounds. I tried again and it said 14. Humm. Heath played with the gauge a while back. I guess he killed it. So I dug around and found another one. Then got her pressures right.
I drove back across the road and she gave me a hug. She said I should squeeze tighter because it made her back feel better. So I picked her up and shook her gently. Her back cracked like a machine gun. Instantly she felt better.
Graham asked if I had a beer and I did so we came over to the house. We had a beer and a shot of whisky and then he walked back home.
I now have the house all to myself till Thursday. Gunner will drive me nuts, but I can bear it. They will have a ball with her mom and the gal who is driving up with her. Tomorrow is the tractor swap meet in Dallas so I will be headed down thereand then JacobD wants to to to my friend Reid's shop to get him to do some work.
I picked up all the parts to tune up CherryBerry. So Sunday it should be running right.
