JUST A MATTER OF TIME....One of Us Was Going To Break Down First !
I thought it was going to be me !
After All...My '94 Honda Accord has been been the most reliable, dependant partner one can ever ask for...Everyday...getting me here & there..in bumper to bumper traffic...in the heat of summer...in the frigidity of Chicago winters...Every morning without any doubts, she was willing and ready to motor me ...of course, oil changes...regular maintanance was extremely important....I wish I took the same care of myself....for I was positive she was in better shape than I.... Just looking at both of us...anyone can figure that! Ha !
JUST ANOTHER DAY IN A REALTOR ROUTINE !
Yesterday..after driving 70 miles round trip to show a prospective buyer a "REO" Bank Owned property..I thought it was a good time, in between appointments to take her in for an oil change....perhaps a bath ...after all, yesterday was like in the mid 90's..with high heat index..etc etc. So we went to our regular "oil/lube/ detail center" ..drove into the stall....turned off engine..and "BANG"/EXPLOSION from engine compartment....steam/smoke/ instantly all over the place.....RADIATOR EXPLOSION ! Dont ask !! I had no idea "why" or "what".... figured at that moment....there went my plans to show anymore homes..time to contact 'AAA".....yep, first time in 18 yrs....it was necessary.
So Thats it...
after 1 hr of making arrangements...tow truck took her to our favorite mechanic...and we'll find out today, what caused it ...At 18..she's still a young car..and Im becoming an Older man..Time for my CheckUP...!
With 22 yrs of real estate experience....nothing rattles me anymore. Just another day! Wishing all of you..a pleasant day and Happy 4th...Get your Check UP !
Today, my '95 Chevy Pick Up Truck..gets to work with me !
