I had to call the ambulance for my old girl this morning; she was hot and bothered, to say the least.

Just seeing her on the stretcher makes me nervous. For crying out loud, it’s just a car, but it is my paid for car and she’s been with me for 10 years.

Here’s to another frugal day at the H house… Thank goodness for our emergency fund!


[Update] Thanks to my mom for picking me up and taking me to Auto Scan to get home-girl. She had a busted radiator and boo-rific hoses and thermostat. A few $$$ and hours later, it’s like she had a really nice spa day. Hope you liked it GF!

PS – If you are in the NW Houston area and need some car work done, I definitely recommend Auto-Scanfor all of your auto-induced woes. A testimony to their awesome service: A few months ago my transmission decided to take a hike while I was cruisin’ at a nice speed of 65 on the freeway. Imagine it – cruisin’, cruisin’, cruisin’, BOOM and down to 35 in quite a few seconds and revving up to almost 4000 RPM just to try to get over to the slow lane [yes, I AM that courteous]. HOLY COW! What to do, what to do!? Call Dad, Call Husband, Call my sanity because it’s going to be a big bill! We got a referral to Auto Scan through our friend, ChrisP Taco’s Dad, who actually worked with this guy back in the day [Come to find out, everybody and their Mama recommend this guy around us too!] So we take it over to Randy one morning; 35 MPH in morning rush hour traffic is AWESOME, the looks people give are amazingly cranky, Bless you and have a Wonderful Day!  He doesn’t do transmissions, but he has a buddy who does and he took it on down and had it replaced, and when it was returned to him, he fixed another little lingering problem so it runs exceptionally well. ONE DAY LATER, I have my car back all nice and running. What shop actually works that quick!? Our bill was $1000 less than I had anticipated, Randy was upfront about the charges we might incur before working on our girl, his transmission friend was able to get the transmission in at some discount. You build trust [and business] by being an honest Abe, and Randy and his team fit the bill! Thanks RANDY!!! 

PSS – At payment for my transmission, Randy gave me a card to call if I EVER had a problem within the next year with my car, in which it might need to be towed or fixed. I thought I would never use it, because my car is SO good to me. You see that wrecker truck in the above photos, thanks Randy, you saved me again!
