The 'father' of a dw knocked on my door today...
lol! the guy half of the couple i bought the stove from knocked on the door today to see if I still wanted the dw! I'd been wondering if she got her dw changed out yet. I've also watched CL in case she forgot my name /#. But her dh remembered where he delivered the stove and he'll deliver the dw tomorrow. And while here he said he'd check my car - lol! it wouldn't start today - even with a new battery. not even a peep out of it. He saw it setting out there with it's hood up (flipped it's lid). I was so disgusted w/it I just left the hood up all day - (don't get me mad - I can be vicious).
Such a nice couple. I was thinking of that dw the other day when planning my list for the electrician when he comes out. Figured I'd let him put in the other one and maybe if it's old enough I'd check if it had other panels on the door. Now I won't have to think about having him back to put this one in later.
Another weird thing happened - when I left the new place just at dark (still enough light to walk around to the old place) I noticed a light - IN MY CAR! what the heck? the inside light was on! I couldn't get it off either so I just shut the hood (kinda hard) and boom! the light went off. That could have just been good timing since I'd also just shut the front door after fiddling w/the switches. But why was it even on?
ok, ghosts... I'll take the key out in the morning and see if it starts on it's own. either way, it's going to the car doctor.
And what with a guy showing up here in a truck, my car out there w/it's hood up and the puppy barking (and barking - I"m sure it was a leaf or 2" long twig cause the guy was long gone) my neighbor lady behind me called to see if I was ok. After hearing about the guy, dw and car she said if I needed her to take me to the store tomorrow she'd be home. (how nice of her!) Her ds works on cars at a local Nissan dealership - I'd planned to call him tomorrow to see what could be wrong with a dead (new) battery and no sound at all (starter? alternator? there was a time I'd have known the answer to that). But I thought I should wait til I wasn't so mad at the car. Didn't wanna use any bad words even tho he is in his early 20's.
