I found some one to fix my brakes. or my son did. a classmate of his. he is a certified mechanic who works for himself out of his place. i take the car to him today. glad i don’t have to wait a week to make an appointment.
my sons friend will fix my brakes for 50 bucks an axle and I buy the parts. I bought the pads for the front brakes for 46 dollah. I don’t know if I need the back ones yet. if I do, I will go to topeekie to get them. rav4s don’t have brake shoes. good deal.
I remember a good ol’ rez boy that was gonna work on marys car once. he said ‘i’ll get a crow bar and a sledge hammer’. I thought crow bar? sledge hammer? if my life was gonna depend on my brakes i don’t want someone smacking them with a sledge hammer.
saved a few more on my mower. I was gonna move the tree branches I trimmed. I jumped on my mower. it started up and I backed out of my tool shed. then it died. it wouldn’t stay started. it would fire up then die. I thought great. just what I need. I aint got a way to get it to a shop.
my nephew came over with a trailer. he checked it out. I tried to start it. it fired up then died. my nephew checked the gas. it was empty. I went to nation station and put some in. it started up fine and ran. that was embarrassing. all it needed was gas. I swear I seen gas in it when I looked straight down into the tank.
I wont forget the look my nephew had, like I was back on the smoke or something. no no I don’t smoke it no mo. I saved a few bucks by not having to take it to the repair shop. most places charge you to just look at it.
my drivers license finally came in the mail. whilst I was at the motor vehicle place I asked the lady if she needed my passport. the website said to bring it as proof of i.d. so I took mine. the lady said it wasn’t needed but asked if I had my social security card. I said yeah. she asked if I wanted a real i.d.
I didn’t know what the hell that was. i asked her what it was. she said they put a little star in the corner. when I go to an airport they use it as proof of i.d. I can get thru lines quicker some times. I said yeah I will take that. I will always travel. lately i have been getting some pre-clearances. must be making up for all the ‘random’ searches i had to go thru. my mild mannered native elder look didn’t work i guess.
I dyed 5 deer tails yellow and 4 black yesterday. while I was dyeing the yellow ones I also dyed some yarn to use as a base. I will use them on the next roach I make. I finished the last one and wrapped it to shape it. I have 10 roaches done now. I just haven’t posted pictures of all of them on my website. gotta do that next. the photographer in me went tribal. don’t wanna do it right now.
after i drop my car off this morning, i will get started on my next roach.
