  •  It was all your fault, (13+ / 0-)

    PK, that I ever came over to Daily Kos. It was your story that reeled me in. You reminded me of all the toughies I met during chemo. So bully for you! Throw more parties so you can wear your lovely necklace.
    I just came in from lying on the cold ground removing a starter from an old Corolla (my oldest daughter's car). If I hadn't made it through cancer, she would have had to marry a mechanic! (not that that's a bad thing).
    Have a great week, PK. Love to you and all here.

    •  joemac, it is WONDERFUL to have you here. (12+ / 0-)

      If it was my fault, I'm more than happy to take the blame.

      What are you doing working on a car in the middle of another storm? Or isn't it up your way? Hope you managed to get it right.

      I had a Corolla I kept till it had 214,000 miles on it, or thereabouts, at which point the cost-benefit really shifted since neither my dad nor my husband was a mechanic ;). 1994, I think. Solid car. My older daughter nearly totaled it in 2002 (I got it in '97) but it was repaired well and kept on going. Oh, it had some weird engine thing that my mechanics thought would doom it, but it never did cause a problem. For all I know, it's still working for the guy who bought it from me. Cars!

      I am going to take your advice on the parties and the necklace, which I wear regardless of the day's events. It is a beautiful piece.

      You do the same, joemac, and hugggs to you as always.

      Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.

      •  The things I learned (4+ / 0-)

        about that Corolla! Starter in back under intake manifold! Single wire held on with regular spade connector (which I never would know if I didn't remove the starter). That single wire was the problem, solved this morning and back in business.
        I always enjoy learning new things.
        I would often tell my students when they wanted to know "Why do we have to learn this?"
        "Ya never know..."
