New And Improved . . .

For the first time in days it was nice enough, and dry enough, to set outside with our coffee this morning. In fact I think this is the first 24 hour period in a couple of weeks when when we haven’t had heavy rains during the day. Some days it looks like our puddles have puddles.

About 1pm Jan and I headed over to the Denny’s for our Ultimate Omelets, and then it was over to HEB for some groceries. Before we left I add the last half of the can of Seafoam to the Jeep’s tank in a last-ditch effort to save a trip to the mechanic tomorrow afternoon. But, unfortunately, there was no improvement.

So as soon we got home and got the groceries put away, we headed back out, with me in the Dakota and Jan following in the Jeep. The truck was low on gas and I wanted to top it off before we drop off the Jeep at the mechanic’s tomorrow afternoon. I also added a bottle of STA-BIL Gas Treatment since the Dakota doesn’t get driven all that much anymore, so I don’t want the gas to go bad while it just sits here parked in front of the rig for weeks at a time.

In fact I think the last time I drove the Dakota was back in Nov. 2020 when we drove it up to Conroe to bring the Jeep back to Santa Fe after we bought it.

So tomorrow afternoon after I get home from work, we’ll take the Jeep down and drop it off at the mechanic’s and see what he can come up with.

I know you’ve all been waiting for this to come on the market, and it’s finally here. New and Improved.

Finishing up, I thought you might enjoy this.


Thought For The Day:

Don’t be afraid of the robot that passes the Turing test. Be afraid of the one that deliberately fails it.
