It's how I don't roll.

It’s how I don’t roll.

It’s official. I can’t keep giving my truck Tylenol and hoping for the best. After a couple of weeks of parking face-to-face just in case the truck won’t start, we’ve decided to take it in and see if people with a different skill set can make it all better.

I really should see the movie Cars.

This disturbs me, though. An acorn? Is a squirrel living in my engine? Rent-free??

So mysterious.

Poor truck. Probably has a nut allergy.

    1. Your truck is still pretty. I think that means it will still run.

    2. I’ve only seen the second Cars movie. It was surprisingly good.

    3. Apparently, Germans can’t say the English word “squirrel”. I saw it on YouTube, so it must be true.

    Would you like to watch it this afternoon? I can help make that happen.

    Perhaps cousins of the squirrels in Mark’s yard did what they did to his truck—chewed through a wiring harness and covered it with a nest of leaves?

    I can tell you from experience….once you get to a certain age, some things just don’t work like they used to.

      Lloyd’s car is 123 years old. The truck is at the shop, so I can’t check it, dang it.

      Dad -- I knew that happened to someone! Thanks for the reminder that it was Mark.

      Beth -- I don’t know, I kind of like not knowing the plot. Preschoolers will endlessly tell me different versions of it.
