Bev’s brother was visiting this weekend, and when he went out to his car yesterday it would not start. After some discussion we figured it had something to do with the fuel line, fuel filter, or fuel pump. With the use of the internet and some experimenting, he finally got it to start last night. Turned out to be a relay from the fuse, so the fuel pump wouldn’t pump properly. Bottom line…fixing it himself cost $20 as opposed to spending $100 per hour for a mechanic.
Later in the day the hand vacuum quit working. Bev calmly took it apart, found the problem, rigged a solution, and it’s working again. This is the same lady who replaces the brake pads on our car.
Living Simple….getting back to basics….not spending frivolously…..that’s what I’m talking about!
Yes, that is a picture of our backyard. Please notice that laundry is drying on a clothesline, and the lawn is brown because we have not watered it all summer long.
