Mr. Fix It

I'm feeling grateful for my husband this morning. Yesterday he was able to get our Volvo through emissions even though the drive cycle hadn't reset. This is why you are nice to the guys at emissions testing. Saved us the $300+ it would've cost us to have the drive cycle reset at the dealership.

Then this story: A lady at work had told me yesterday that her air conditioning had stopped working. Her husband took a day off work to meet the A/C repair guy who showed up and said his company didn't work on that type of unit. She was on the phone most the day trying to find a company that would come out to repair it. Most said they couldn't work on that brand, others couldn't come out for a few days. She finally found someone who came out and told her it was a bad fuse. Today at work she told us how glad she was they didn't have to replace the unit, and it had only cost her $200.

Some of you may know that a few weeks ago this happened to us. Except instead of calling a repairman, Col jumped up onto the roof, went to Lowe's and bought a fuse and some kind of breaker switch something something, and one hour and $10.00 later our A/C was fixed and working fine.

So, if any of you see Col today, give him a hug for me.

I also hunt with a Red Ryder bb gun.

I've never missed a shot with that gun.

By the way AUbrey - thanks for sharing the vampire closure. I grinned impishly as I read it.

I'll grin even more impishly if you get me that Hawaiian haystack sauce recipe ASAP

In case anyone is wondering what is on Carl's face... it is dust. We had just gotten off the quads. I led the way.

I think I gave Col a ride to the place to get the fuse. All he knows he learned from me--doing just the opposite, I mean.
