Grandgirls! Cars! 2.25.21

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:19 pm  

It’s been a wild day.

I picked up my car yesterday from our mechanics. They couldn’t really find anything wrong. That’s never good.

Got to Global Mall without any problem.

The temperature gauge stayed exactly where it should.

When Ashley got there I could immediately tell she had been crying. She still did her best to not act too upset around the girls.

Miles had been in a wreck. He is ok, but the car is a mess. I called him and told him to let me know and I could come get him and then take him to my sister-in-law’s house where we kept Jesse’s car.

While I waited for his call, the girls played with dolls and sidewalk chalk.


It was what I call “Nakuru weather.” Fabulous!

Certainly put a smile on my face to break out the Ecuadorian Fedora!

I found something for the girls to ride on.

After I got the call from Miles, the girls and I went to Doraville to pick him up at the car repair place. My car drove fine all the way into town and back. At the very end of our trip back home, the car started overheating again. Clouds of smoke rose from the engine and then the fumes came in through the AC vent! I quickly rolled all the windows down. There was radiator fluid all over the engine, but because the radiator had been completely filled up the day before, the engine never ran hot.

We made it to my mechanics ok. Miles’ dad came to pick us up and took us to Ann’s house. But now, the picture had changed. I needed the car, too! Miles’ Mom let him drive her car and I was going to use Jesse’s car.

I let the girls play with the dogs for a while and then we got in the car to go home. Sadly, the engine light came on! Now I didn’t know if I could depend on this car or not. Worst part was that our mechanics were closed because of doctor tests until next Monday.

I called Ashley and she came to get the girls after getting off work. Neither of them are going into work tomorrow so I won’t have the girls until Saturday afternoon. After she drops the kids off, they’ll go on to S. Carolina for a missions conference while I keep the girls over the weekend.

Studied Spanish.

Ashley’s phone’s screen got messed up. We have insurance on it.

I thought this was great news.

I think Al Franken is really funny. I enjoyed watching this.

Ashley thinks it’s fun to hear what the girls want to listen to. I sent her our playlist. This is just some of it.
