Sort of overdue for this.


Sure missed it for the 3 months or so it was not running.
Not a lot on power, but it sure beats the lesser alternative.
I am going to have to start paying attention to walking every now and then.
I'm not quite getting the exercise I should, now that I'm not working.

2006 Chev Uplander with about 40 000 miles on the clock when I bought it.
It quit on us Christmas Eve, just after turning over 100 000 miles. Got it running Mar 24.
Fuel pump and sending unit were gone and there was a bit of a problem with the spark control that may be squill related. Fortunately, all it took was a fuse.
Kind of a big repair bill with most of it being labor to install the pump and trace the electrical issue.

However ;) we are extremely happy to be mobile again...

i understand , i think that is great that you got it fixed - everyone needs their mobility inspite of those that wish to steal it from us , i get the need for exercise as well , in retirement ive found i actually need to think about it for the first time in my life - never been real big on it but mostly got what i needed in my job and recreation , thats changed a bit

i have been working 6 days a week for a couple months but its a short term thing , ive got two part time jobs for a couple more weeks then back to one - i stand a lot but dont move very far , im starting to think walks will be required
