Advantages

Ah, the beauty of being a former mechanic.

I can decide to address the funny sound the front right corner of the car is making, look up the specs on wheel bearing end play, yank the front tire, set the end play with a dial indicator, get it all put back together, and be cleaned up in less than an hour.

Of course, the car is still making the same noise, but ....

Who's right corner? Yours or the car's?

My right wing makes occasional noise.

Ellen said...

You have wings? cool.

Milly said...

Are they feathers or paper? Cause paper wouldn't be the same.

codepoke said...

I'm just a wingnut.

Ellen said...

Wingnuts...yeah, we have a couple of those around here, too.

Milly said...

I can sale nuts soon. Love the orange store.

codepoke said...

Milly,

I think maybe you are confusing this post with another one. :-)

And no, my car is not orange.

Milly said...

I work at at the orange home improvement store. We have nuts and bolts. I'm told I will bleed orange after a while.

codepoke said...

AAAHHHH!

Tossing oranges (la naranja) into the discussion totally threw me! But I can see where it came from now. Also explains your facility with hand tools....

I can sell ya a garbage disposal they have a very cool one.

I've always tried to do as much work as I can when it came to fixing things. Women who can't do it need to learn.
