I Come Down To Talk To Me Tuesday at the MSC

Post by PetalMel »

Good morning, folks!

Long time lurker, inconsistent poster here. Coffee is on and there may be some pop tarts in the pantry. It is looking to be a wonderfully sunny 80 degree day here in Michigan. My garden is starting to produce more than I can eat and the puppy is starting to enjoy sitting and relaxing more. Life is good today.

Take care :)
well, ummmmmmm, yah, I guess I better come up with something witty to put in this spot since everyone is reading it.......

There's not much going on at Ringville today. We dropped off our new car "Shelly" at the dealer last night. I've been noticing some issues when the engine is trying to shift. Some hesitation, then revving, etc. Kevin did an on-line investigation and it seems this was a big problem from 2015-2017 with this problem eventually being a recall issue. The problem seemed to have been resolved after that....ours is a 2019. Good news is she is a "certified pre-owned" car and we have the original 100,000 mile/10 yr warranty and transmission is on that list of coverage. I still dread the call.

Well the rain has eased for now.

A bit over 6" over the last couple of days.

The toothache has eased.

Had tacos for dinner - street-food style rather than texmex style.

Long Story Short....

Wife broke a button off of the washing machine, and i got tired of listening to her complain about it so we went to Lowes last night to purchase a new washer and dryer (they have to match you know). She found exactly what she wanted but they didn't have it in stock. She said she was in no rush as ours works, and would wait. They wouldn't allow her to order it.

We went to Home Depot, and found the same set. They had the washer (which we ordered) and is coming Thursday. They did not have the dryer. When we got home, my wife went on-line and ordered the dryer from Lowe's (which they wouldn't allow us to do in the store). She got an email this morning indicating that it will be delivered this morning, and it indicates that this is being delivered from THE SAME FRICKEN STORE !!

The price on-line was $135 MORE than what it was tagged at the store. As soon as it is delivered, she will be heading up there for a price adjustment. Let's all pray for the poor representative that she will be facing.

She can't change the load size of the amount of water that goes in. Stuck in the low position. I took the panel off, and switch it to Large and it overflowed.

Good Morning Gang!!
As Mel mentioned IT IS a beautiful day in the Neighborhood!
Wishing it could be a stay at home day but alas not in the cards.
Construction project next door to office was crazy yesterday. Cow pasture stench at all time high. Dumping dirt, moving dirt etc....end of day my car looked like it had been parked in a Great Plains dust bowl. Seriously, looked out the window at times & visibility was amazingly blurred. Thank goodness for a brief early evening shower to give it a quick rinse. Hoping I'll be able to look out my window & actually SEE those clear skies today!
Enjoy your July 28th Y'all!

I'm sitting in the parking lot of my doctor's office. I always misjudge the time to allow for traffic and so I'm about 30 minutes early. I have an insurance paper she needs to fill out with my latest blood test results. Hoping this request goes well.
Then I'm heading to the shop to work but it's at least an hour drive from here to there.
Have a great day.

UPDATE ON SHELLY

For once when the tech drove the car they were able to duplicate the issue. However, it appears that this is a result of the "dual clutch transmission". Even though it was a recall problem few years ago it does not apply to the 2019. Basically, they tell us that's the way it is supposed to be :o. so, this is a good thing/bad thing about the dual clutch transmission.........I guess I need to (re)learn how to drive. They did put it on the computer diagnostic whatchamacallit and it didn't throw any codes....... At least there was no charge .

Morning one and all and everyone in between....

Dropped sister off at work (she broke her right foot and can't drive right now)
One meeting down, another one is just a bit
Bought some new flip flops
Waiting for the cleaning lady to show up
Need to reposition my work at home desk. It is right under the AC vent. Brrr!
I must be wishing on someone else's star....
