TGIF, GN!

It appears Photobucket is down as of this writing (which explains why there ain’t no thread pics).

Maaaaaaaan…I’m glad it’s teh end of the week.

I got nuthin’ else; BBL.

Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!
No photobucket? Maybe the photo-walrus took it back.

The alternator on my car went out last night on my drive to choir rehearsal and I managed to limp into the church parking lot. So now I get to deal with getting back there, calling AAA, and getting towed to the shop we use. I don’t know what it’s going to cost, but it’s more than Mrs. Paddy wants to pay on a 17 year old vehicle. I’ve been looking for a new (or gently used) vehicle for a while, but just haven’t found anything I like that has good reviews and reliability and that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. I know, I’m too picky. I’ve never been one for sedans, having driven small pick-ups or mid-size SUV’s since I first owned a car. All the crossovers look like mini-vans (shudder), and I don’t need a full-size pick-up. Oh, well. What’s a gerbil to do?

I’m not so sure about riding a motorcycle in SoCal traffic.

Drive-by:

Bummer about your alternator, Paddy. What about a rebuilt one as a temporary fix until you find a newer vehicle you like?

Who (else) wants to see Paddy riding a Harley?

ME! ME! ME!

Q: Why did Yugos all have rear window defoggers as standard equipment?

Got the car towed into the shop and they’re taking a look at things.

In re the Yugo: Teh Younger is back from Cuba and said he saw an interesting mix of cars on the road -- ’50s American cars, Soviet-era cars, and new European luxury cars.

Cali -- Teh Younger went diving twice a day for most of his trip. The water was about 80°F and visibility was 30-60 feet.

Paddy, that sounds lovely! It would take a herd of wild horses to get me out of that water!
