Saved $200 By Going To The Supermarket

How did I save $200 by going to the supermarket. Well I think it must have been a "just right" pothole that saved me $200.

How you ask? Last fall cold air stopped coming out of the dashboard vents. I knew it wasn't the A/C because I still got cold air out of the defroster. My mechanic said probably a bad vent motor and with the coplexity of getting to it I was looking at $200 minimum.

I'd bent putting off fixing it till I got some other bills paid but was planning to do it within the next two months. Well I go to the store and when I get back to the car Immediately roll the windows down because of course it is hot as hades from the windows being rolled up. Well as I pull out of the parking lot I keep feeling a chill. I thought at first it was an approaching storm doing a rapid temperature drop. Then I finally realize it was coming from the dashboard A/C vents. Darn if it must have just been a stuck door and I finally hit just the right pothole just the right way to unstick it.

You know how some people give every non-working item a good whack as the first repair step.....maybe there's method to that madness! And just in time for the coming hot weather too!

Time to buy a lottery ticket....

Well, if it happened once it will happen again. I see a $200 bill in your future.

Don't worry Ray I am here to unjinx you I know not a real word but here is a message from my fortune cookie I received recently and I am sharing with you. It says Your Dearest wish will come true. On the back it says Learn Chinese A Moment (hui) (er). Your lucky numbers are 31,39,51,17,56,50. Now go out there and play the lottery while your luck is still good . If you win maybe I will try those same numbers good luck.
