  •  Cheers everyone! (18+ / 0-)

    Cheers to a sorta warm day here in the teeny-tiny state o' RI.
    Jeers to my car's indefatigable engine light that persistently refuses to go out despite numerous corrections in exactly what it says is wrong.  Has the engine experts scratchin' their heads and between sips of Dunkin Donut coffee saying, uh, uh, we don't know what it is....well guys, that's what I'm paying you the big bucks for, it's an engine, not the mystery of the universe.  Besides, I don't think the police are gonna be quite so lax when they're writing me a ticket for an expired sticker....but, but Officer, they said they didn't know what it was....and here are all the receipts - which are more than what I paid for my first car.
    (In defense of the engine guys, one group has been wonderful, the other....well, one group has been wonderful, and tomorrow I'm off to see yet another who's apparently the wizard of the engine world, hopefully, he'll be able to unlock the secret of the bad boy engine light.)
    And this....

    Cost of a bottle of whiskey made from George Washington's own recipe and sold in the Mount Vernon gift shop: $95
    Cost of a bottle of moonshine made from Uncle Billy-Jo's recipe and received as a gift - priceless (especially when the wizard of the engine world reiterates what all the other engine experts have said....he doesn't know why the light stays on)
    Cheers to a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
    Have a wonderful day everyone!

    I think, therefore I am........................... Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose....AKA Engine Nighthawk - don't even ask!
