Oh my achin' brakes!

Well, it finally happened.  My brakes gave up the ghost this morning.  I was on my way to get some orange juice and a diet coke for breakfast at the nearby gas station.  I took my camera with me so I could get some snow pics of the park before it melted off.  As I was turning into the parking lot, I pressed the pedal to stop in the parking space and thats when it went all the way to the floor.  Thankfully, I was going slow and there is a sidewalk there to act as a bumper, or I would have taken out the Parks and Rec office.  Oh and to top it off the frozen snow/ice accumulation on my driver side window caused my window motor to break and now my window flops in the breeze.  Great- a two for one special! 

So, now the truck is in the shop (aprox. 700 worth of brake repairs) and I have a lovely redneck window on the driver's side.  Merry Christmas to me!


  1. Trust me ... you get used to the redneck window ... it might even make a good object lesson for Sunday School!

  2. Sorry about your brakes I'm just tahnkful you weren't hurt and that you didn't hurt anyone!
    Remember to pray for us about the decisions we are trying to make guess we'll know when we really start to listen????
