My dipstick broke

(opps that's not my volvo!)

Ahhh - the joys of car ownership. My volvo is falling apart at the seems, I guess like car, like owner. At a time when there is no money...sooo

I go down to the auto store and get a one size fits all dip stick. Let me tell you one size does not fit all!! So now I'm driving around with oil spurting out all over my engine. Not happy. I check out the junk yards, no luck.

Then I asked my old, English neighbor to help. The damn dip stick went in too far. I knew it was time for me to leave man and car alone. When I came back Raymond had taken off the broken plastic top and replaced it with a wooden top. "Is that going to burn?!" Raymond assured me that it would be all all right. How many times have we heard that?

To be continued...


  1. thank you! And extraordinary person taking pictures (aka senorita)! The best friend I could ask for. Inspiration came from talking to my friend about the days events. Chloe misses you. And so do I.

  2. Your legs are the first thing that comes up on Google Image Search for "car dip stick" now. Well done!


Thank you for taking the time to read my thoughts and share yours.:-)
