A week of jumpstarts

April 4, 2014


Well, it’s Friday night and I’m too tired for complete sentences. Except for that one. Here is the story of my truck’s yearly death. (Dang. Another sentence.)

Last Thursday: Jump start/ after work

Monday: Jumpstart/before work

Tuesday: Jumpstart/ after conferences

Wednesday: No jumpstart!

Thursday: Jumpstart/ after Open House

Friday: Truck at battery place for replacement/repair

Saturday: Still there.


Haven’t I told this story before?

    At first, I ready “…my truck’s early death” and thought that you had very high standards for how long a vehicle should last.

      Yeah, the truck is really doing better than can be expected for being 15 years old. On the other hand, I think it has only had 20,000 miles put on it in the last 13 years.

    Did you get your battery? Someone once said driving short distances doesn’t give enough time to recharge. That from nonmechanical me, would not know if true.
