Jump Start

This day started out on a sour note. Mom was going to go to her doctor this morning, because her prescription meds were running low. She gets in her car, it won't start. I know little about cars, so she calls Uncle Floyd. He gets here, cleans the terminal cables on the battery. Still doesn't start. So he gets his jumper cables, we hook them to the battery in my Ranger, and her battery. After a while, her car starts.

She's had the car about 5 years now, and it still has the original battery. So, before she goes to the doctor, she's going to stop by Advance Auto Parts to get a new battery. She'll be away most of the afternoon probably, because after the doctor visit, she'll go to Walgreen's to get her medicine, then to the store to get some groceries.

  • Safety First

    Nasty storms moving through the area. Started hearing a steady, low "roaring" sound along with the thunder. As a safety measure, I muted the stream…

  • Rare Snow Day

    The view out my back door this morning. Also, currently 17ºF...

  • Melting Weather

    Is it any wonder why I tend to stay as "stripped down" as possible this time of year?
