I know I have been scarce of late and I apologize. I haven't done much in the shop except for rebuilding the benches in the pictures below. We have been doing a lot of yard work. Brought in 5 yards of topsoil and 60 rolls of sod so far.
This last week has been horrible for me. On Monday I took my new truck in for it's first scheduled service, and while I was waiting for it I wandered into the showroom. That was a big mistake.
There was the Camaro of my dreams, a 2010 2LT Transformer Special Edition
. I called the spouse to come see it, and if any of you remember the miter saw story, this one went much the same.
The conversation went something like this: (if you haven't seen the Transformers movies you might not get it.)
Me: "Can we get it?"
Spouse: "Are you sure you want it in yellow?"
Me: "It's NOT yellow, it's BUMBLE BEE!"
So we offered the 2001 Blazer as a trade and struck the deal and we are picking it up on Friday. Waiting all week has been pure HELL!
I have been too distracted to do ANYTHING! The spouse told me to stay away from the power tools!
Then today I came home from a meeting at work and the spouse tells me the Blazer won't start.
I went into PANIC mode. The Blazer has to be running when we bring it in to trade tomorrow! It's the first time since the day we bought it it hasn't started.
The spouse went to work and I called a local mechanic who was too busy to look at it, so I called our regular Blazer mechanic who is 25 miles away. He told me it was probably the anti-theft system and gave me some instructions over the phone. 10 minutes later I had it running like a top! That man is in for a BIG reward!
So if the sky doesn't fall and all the stars align just right tomorrow I will have my BEE! Keep your fingers crossed for me. You can see what kind of luck I have.
