There's a movie called "Cars" but my ol' Jeep is nothing like those cute, animated little creations. I took it in Saturday for an oil change and the air conditioning was gargling so I asked the service manager if they could look at it. Of course there was no air conditioner guys working Saturday, but I could bring it in Monday (a holiday).

Monday morning, bright and spiffy I reported back to the dealer. He got the mechanic to take a ride with me and of course there was no noise. No gargling, no chirping, no whining, no hiccoughs; just a quietly running engine.

Good part is I didn't have to leave it at the dealer and no repair bill. Bad part is summer has arrived in north Texas. I figure it'll breakdown the hottest day of the year.

Anyway, I went home and dusted off the table saw and worked on a long overdue project. That didn't go well either. I forgot to measure twice and cut once.

New Toy

I'm sitting here playing with my new toy. I treated myself to an iPad 2. Yahoo, what a great tool. I just have to learn how to use it now. Remember we're talking about someone who doesn't even have a smart phone.
