Ceci n'est pas une personne.

My sister is automotively cursed, all of a sudden...

Last week the clutch went out on her car. She paid the $1200 and got it fixed.

This weekend the radiator on her car died, so she bought a new one, and she and I replaced it on the roadside in Capital Hill.

At this point, I think her Volvo is just old and showing it's age, but then...

We get home after replacing the radiator, and she wants to go to the store to get some more radiator fluid, so she borrows my truck. I go out this morning to go to work and the dash is completely dead. The fuse blew for the dash.

She's not allowed to drive my truck till this bad juju is cleared up. :-p

I forgot to mention, in the heat last week, I thought I would do Lilly a favor and get her a kiddy pool to cool off in, while we were having 100 degree weather. I drove all over, and there was not a kiddie pool to be found anywhere.

But I did see at the Feed store a galvanized steel 6' diameter, 2' tall 400+ gallon water trough.

I spend $280 on it, find someway to get it home on the back of my truck, and....

Lilly refuses to get in it, even with just a couple inches of water in it.

On the plus side, Libby and I have a nice wading pool, that we put to good use this last week.

Went to Schucks today, so I could get a fuse for the dash and Libby could get a thermometer while trying to ditch the curse. I was a bit surprised to see a car out from with a Confederate Flag on it. I hope it just means they are Dukes of Hazzard fans. O_o
