And Kitty sayeth, "LET THERE BE LIGHT! ... please?"
When little ol' G bought her big ol' vee-hik-kl, "Yukon Jack," I bought her Blazer. I traded in my '93 rusty Subaru, with 147,000 miles, for a rusty '93 Blazer with 146,000 miles. The Subaru's exhaust system, the whole friggin' thing, was shot. Kaput!
There was a long, comical list of things in the Subaru which had ceased to work eons ago. Nothing which affected its drivability ... that is, until the exhaust system went on a 97* day last summer after I had exited Wegman's parking lot with TWO DOZEN ice cream bars.
The Blazer's exhaust system, on the other hand, was fine. However, the dashboard light did not work. And, as anyone who has had this problem knows, dashboard lights are cheap ... usually less than $1. It's the labor that gets ya!
During the summer, this was not much of a problem. I'd get out of work with enough daylight to see me home. But as the summer waned and fall approached, I began having a problem. So my wonderful boss, Boss, bought me a little flshlight which I mounted on the steering column using velcro. Works like a charm! Now that winter is here, I'm learning that I have to rip the flashlight off the steering column and bring it inside to keep warm. Dog Man says it's because the cold affects the batteries.
The fact that the store where I worked closed and that I'm now unemployed is beside the point. I can SEE! I can SEE!
