“Monday, Monday,” …My truck wouldn’t start this morning. Maybe it was because the lights were left on from Saturday evening. (Hint #1, don’t turn on just the running lights at sundown.) So, to get to work I have to drive the van with a flat tire. Ha ha, my first “how to” to the world. It won’t be a “message in a bottle” but a ditty here and a ditty there, sent out across the vast realm that so dubiously sustains our lives.
After work, first project: How to recharge the battery in my cool orange 1980 Dodge truck:
Step 1: borrow antique battery charger from someone. (My dad is one of my great providers.)
Step 2: Stay calm and be energized.
Step 3: Make sure the positive goes onto the positive terminal (RED), and the other connects to the other terminal.
The tires are bad. Real bad! See the cracks and disappearing treads. Also, on the bottom, there are chunks of tire missing. The tire goes flat ever 9 days. Hopefully, new tires will come soon. In the meantime, we don’t drive very far or fast.
How to pump-up a flat tire:
Step 1: Notice tire is flat.
Step 2: Stay calm and don’t cuss.
Step 3: Get long extension cord.
Step 4: Get air pump.
Step 5: Secure the end of the hose thingy to the valve stem.
Step 6: Turn on pump until the PSI is near 32 pounds. (Warning: not all tires are created equal.)
Word of the day: feckless Mr. Smith is not feckless.
