Mikey Sleepy

Man am I paying for last night. After staying up to around 2am on a school night screwing with the last post, I am zonked!

Recently my truck flipped 100k miles. If you don't believe me, I took a picture...

Unlike my other high mileage vehicles (1980 Pontiac Phoenix/Babe Magnet, 1986 VW GTI, 1995 Honda Civic EX Coupe), I have put all but a hand full of the miles on this lead sled myself.

Today I took the old dog in for a service as the brakes were a bit 'lumpy' and it was due for an oil change. I told them give me a call if the bill goes over $300.... Ah, to dream... Basically it needs a brake job, and every seal on the engine replaced! Some are easy and cheap to do, many are expensive. That and it needs new ball joints (expensive again). The joys of a high mileage vehicle. We are well over my $300 limit by a hearty sized single digit multiplier.

I haven't had a payment on it forever so I can't complain too much.

Signing the papers on something new, shiny and sporty is unfortunately not an option. Carrie just got a new ride so I got to stretch this one out a while more. The thought of two new car payments in a couple months time quickly dumps a bucket of cold water over my head. I can still dream though.... Nighty night!
