Just when a person thinks all is going well, a wrench is thrown in the works. Mike is in Holland shooting in a pistol match, and just before he left I asked which of his two vehicles I could use if my car failed, he said the blue van. I really though my car was OK until it broke down yesterday. My mechanic drove me home and as soon as I had put my groceries away, I went out to bring the blue van up to the house. DANG! it would not start, it was deader than a Dodo. I called the office and canceled work for today, and I can ill afford to lose any wages as I am trying to save for a visit to my homeland, New Zealand later this year. I am afraid the repairs to the car is going to take a large bite out of my savings, I may not be able to afford the trip at all, and that is very upsetting.
Well, that is enough crying, whining for now, just had to get it off my chest, and I really can't see how to make lemonade out of this mess. Perhaps buy a lotto, nuh! "if wishes were horses......."
