A Lesson In Car Mechanics

Thursday, June 24, 2010
Lesson number 1. When your kids get out of the car, make sure they have turned off the overhead lights and that they have shut their doors properly.

Lesson number 2. Be sure you know where your husband keeps the battery charger.

Lesson number 3. Be sure you know how to open the hood of the car and identify the battery.

Lesson number 4.  Make sure that the battery charger works. And is not broken.

Lesson number 5 and the most important lesson of all.....

Be sure that you have got good neighbours - especially a retired farmer who keeps a handy battery charger in his shed and will pop over with it at the drop of a hat and will loan it to you for the afternoon.

Final point: It doesn't matter if you don't know diddly about car mechanics. It's the neighbours that count!

I can't even tell you how many times I have had to tromp through ice or snow or mud to get to the barn to get the charger. Then roll out the extension cord, start up the car, put everything back where it belongs (for the next time I kill the battery). Ugh. At least it wasn't *your* fault. In my world it is *always* my fault.

Praise God for neighbors! And I'm so glad you had a more relaxed day! I also very much enjoyed your "Uncle Jiggy" post. How special to have all that information on your family! Thanks for sharing it with us.

Enjoy your week!
