My ride to work today.

Summer seems closer to winding down. I really like fall weather here in S. Carolina. Much nicer riding when it ain't so blazin' hot.

Life is good.

HEY WASHINGTON DC....READ THIS

I am an American citizen. I am against any intervention by the United States of America in regards to Syria. We have our own problems here to contend with. Let the world solve their own problems.

nothing to say

I surely have a lot to say, though not the will to say it.
Just a lot of tough times here I reckon. I don't want to broadcast
my problems. Whining is not going to make anything better. Life goes on.

What is up with all this rain?

a little scare

Had a bit of a scare today.

I was taking my ten year old daughter to the flea market, where we have a business set up in
a warehouse space. We were riding in an old 97 Toyota corolla I recently bought, when the car began slowing down on its own.

I tried to make it into a parking lot, but it came to a dead stop, mostly in the road. The front brake pads were smoking, and locked down solid.

I told my kid to get out of the car, and away from the road, just in case the car got tagged in the ass.
I sit in the car trying to get her to move, motor runs, no move, brakes locked....damn....

The kid freaking out telling me to get out of the car before I got plowed.....I am getting a tad worried looking in the mirror. Ok....yeah, I am starting to freak out a bit.....this ain't happened before.

A pick up pulls up behind me and driver asks if I need help....tells me I am in a real bad spot....I explain the situation, and he lines his front bumper up with back of car and pushes me to safety.....blood pressure begins dropping now.

The fine gentleman suggests it ay be the master cylinder sticking. hmmmmmm......

My wife finally gets there in my big ass Ford super Crew....yay.....

I find myself totally unprepared.....no tools....not even my trusty Gerber multi-tool. I usually never go anywhere without it. I asked wife if there is a Harley Davidson carburetor adjustment tool in the truck...
??????? A HAMMER....... She brings me a 24 inch pipe wrench....close enough. A little banging on the master cylinder.....and my planets have realigned....brakes working again.

She follows me home, then takes the kid back to our "storefront" with her.....all is well again.

Just had to get that off my chest.....
