Now that we’re back to staying home because of Covid and not seeing Addie, more because of cheerleading and her schedule, my car isn’t being driven.
This morning Vince asked me when was the last time I drove my car. I had to think about it and the best I could remember, it’s been 12 days since I drove it . . 12 days since I left the house and that was just to take Addie home, drop her off and return home. It was time to hook it up to the battery minder and get the dry erase board out so we will know when to put it back on the charger. We definitely don’t need three vehicles but with them being old, insurance is low and annual taxes are low so I’m sure we’ll just keep them all and try to remember to hook the Highlander up to the battery minder every 10 – 14 days. The Honda can go almost a month. In fact, I don’t think the battery has ever discharged enough that it wouldn’t start. The old pickup would sit for months without being started and it always started just like it had been driven yesterday.
I still can’t believe I kept the Highlander and Honda charged for six months when I was here by myself.

While driving up the expressway on Friday, a truck dropped a half pallet and I ran over it. There wasn’t time to swerve to avoid it. Yes, my front tire was flat yesterday. Got it fixed and my back tire was flat today. What a nuisance.

So sorry! That kind of stuff happens way too often. Hope you don’t wake to a flat tire in the morning.
