In case you haven't noticed on my Facebook mini-feed, I have uploaded two more Weekly Progress Report videos since August 9th. You can watch me demonstrate my guitar skills. In the video I uploaded today, you can hear a neighbor's dog accompanying me with loud barking while I play.

As a matter of fact, he did! That's because he rode with me and I require all of my passengers to buckle up.

Here's a new adventure, one in which 5 pieces of my car are replaced with brand new pieces.

Yesterday in early afternoon, I drove across town to do computer support for Patty at her house. Then I drove home, ho-hum, no problem.

Later that night, I thought to myself, "I need to get out of the house again," so I decided I should get dinner from ChickFilA. Unfortunately, when I got in my car and turned the key, nothing happened!! It was obviously a battery problem. The no-seatbelt beeping noise had deteriorated into a clicking noise. The indicator lights on the dashboard were all very faint. Even when I got out of the car and pushed the button to power-lock all the doors, nothing happened.

A storm was brewing, and I came up with a brilliant theory, "I know my battery is weak, but maybe the lightning and other electrical impulses in the air are making it weaker than usual. I will try again in the morning." And then I stayed home, made myself dinner from the minimal grocery supply in my kitchen, and continued watching downloaded shows like I always do.

This morning, I couldn't start the car, which blew my lightning theory to hell. So, at two different times, I recruited two different neighbor friends to jump-start my car for me. Unfortunately, the Camry refused to cooperate.

When I emailed Hloaroo at her office to say that I was stuck at home, she told me that she'd just helped another friend of hers with a dead battery within the past 5 days, and she offered to come over on her lunch break and try to help me. So I said okay, and she came over, and we connected our cars together, waited about 5 minutes; WOO-HOO, my car actually started.

So it's true what they say, "the third time's the charm."

I immediately drove to Sears Auto Center at Fayette Mall; it took them 2.5 hours to change my battery, install 4 new tires, and do a complete balance and alignment. No doubt they milked me a bit on those labor charges and "Road Hazard" agreements, but I am not going to complain, since there's no way I would have done any of the automotive repairs myself.

You may wonder, "if all he needed was a battery, why did he also get tires?" The answer is, of course, I did need new tires. Caught a lucky break because Sears Auto Center had the tires I want (Falken Ziex ZE512).

So now I'm much closer to having a good-as-new car! There are some other critical elements, like a timing belt and a water pump, that I think I need to replace ASAP. Maybe I'll do that next week.

I definitely want to get my car in great shape before I drive to my 20-year high school reunion in western North Carolina on September 15th.

End of story.

Ah Ha Dad says, I see the problem. If you had been fastening your seatbelt all along, the battery would have lasted a little longer Very Happy

No, the seatbelt noise only happens when you first get in the car; it's not always going beep beep beep while you're driving around town. By the time I've left my street, my alternator has recharged the amount needed to make the beeping noise next time.

Here is a 3D photo I took yesterday, during the second attempt to jumpstart my dead battery:

In other news, I've just uploaded another guitar video on Facebook. This one is longer than the previous 2 guitar videos combined! Go check it out.

The third time was not a charm - the third person you asked had experience in this area and knew what to do. Saying it's a charm takes away my great feeling of accomplishment. :-/

I agree. They all must be in management. Afraid of the proletariat. Very Happy

OOHHH a big adult word. Good for me.

I think it's that we clammed up when we felt the eye of big brother trained on us.

Today it occurred to me that my frequent visits with Mary Ann and Danielle have, in a way, turned them into substitute sisters.

What they have in common with my two biological sisters is that they sometimes team up and exclude me, which hurts me deeply.

What they don't have in common with Cheryl and ML is that they are both younger than I. Plus, I find my substitute sisters very attractive, and they are forced to tolerate my constant flirting. I would never flirt with my real sisters.

Soon I will post more pix of these two lovely lasses.

Long, long ago, when we all lived in the same house. I can remember when y'all would have friends over, and you'd all be doing your fun little Girl Scout games or whatever y'all did. I was the little screaming boy who was incessantly knocking on the door because I'd been locked out of your room. Remember?

I remember having, what were their names, Cheryl? Mildred and Margaret or something like that? over to play Monopoly and baking banana nut bread and having a chipmunk-cheeked little brother greet us at the bedroom door to let us know that it had COOLED ENOUGH TO EAT, thank you very much! Laughing

This is actually a very favorite childhood memory of mine, and whenever I can somehow steer a conversation to it (hmm... baking... Monopoly... little brother antics), I DO! Cool

Wow, this is news to me. I have no recollection of any "doing our nails" stories involving Heather, but I definitely remember a time in junior high when the girl at a nearby desk offered me $5 if she could paint some of my fingernails (and I refused the offer).
