    my local mechanic told me to not worry about an appointment. He said just drop by and we can change out your belt between jobs. It’ll only take 30 minutes.

    I’ve been here an hour watching him be interrupted by old ladies wanting to talk and parts people needing his signature!

    He came over and asked me about my cable service and talked for about 10 minutes.

    I really wanted to remind him I was in a hurry, but I go to church with him so ...

    I noticed with that picture you sent me via phone camera of a pic of your ceiling fan that you live in a double wide.
    You were trying to tell me you were taking a nap. And I could tell it was a double wide by the ceiling where it was split.

    It does feel good when you prolly have the biggest double wide in the park ......huh?
    That there is a sign of achievement and success.


    "Prolly"..........................YOU LOOZERS! HAHAHAHHAHAHAHA!

    He ended up having to replace the belt tensioner too. Second time in two years.

    No big cost associated with it, but dang ... are they made in Mexico?
