STORIES OF MY LIFE AND TOLD IN ONE DAY....

CONTINUED FROM YESTERDAY....

"I've always trusted this company because my Father was and two of my 

cousins, Leroy and Lewis Cline, are customers of theirs."

I took Mother's Honda to Jenkin's Automotive in Harrisonburg, Virginia just north

of Valley Block at least twice for repairs. I cannot remember what the repairs 

were, all I remember is that they did a good job for the money. If the repairs 

were major, I'm sure I would remember.

Here in Ohio, I take the car to Leaches Auto Repair on Back Orrville Road. They

have replaced the tires (best tires-Michelin), aligned the front end and replaced 

the radiator (new radiator). Several days ago, I took the car to Leaches for an oil

and filter change and to rotate the tires. They checked everything important for

the smooth operation of the vehicle to include besides the latter, tire pressure

and all fluid levels. They added fluid to the brake fluid reservoir, antifreeze to the

radiator and windshield wiper fluid to its container for less than $42.

In Omaha, Nebraska I went to Regency Auto for repairs and oil and filter 

changes. They where located just west about 1/2 mile on Pacific Street from my

son, Michael, and daughter-in-law, Erin's, apartment. Their major repair on the

Honda was to replace a bad alternator. They had to take apart a lot of the car 

to get to the alternator and replace it. The small engine compartments of small

cars in 1986 don't leave you much room for maneuvering.

I left Omaha in January of 2016 and went to Las Vegas, Nevada where I lived in 

Mother's car in a Walmart parking lot for about 3 and 1/2 months.

The only major repair I needed that I remember was to replace the starter motor.

The starter did not fail along the road, street or at the Walmart parking lot. It 

went bad when I was in another parking lot where I went to CVS Pharmacy and

Planet Fitness. In the same lot was an O'Reilys auto parts. Lucky me. I attempted

to replace the starter myself after buying it from O'Reilys, but just like before in

Omaha there was little room for working. I worked on it for 3 days, sleeping in the 

car and the lot, and finally got the starter out. It would have taken more than a 

week or so before I installed the starter, if a young man had not stopped along 

with his wife who had a breast feeding baby in her arms. He said he could 

replace the starter in less than an hour. I promised him $50, but it took him over

two hours to replace the starter so I gave him all the cash I had. $74. I guess if 

that young man would not have appeared, I might still have been there to this

very day.

HEALTH

*I've gotten a little nauseated the last few days. I hope it ain't that lemon juice that

I've been drinking.

*I have not pooped for several days. I told you the other day that poop moves

through your body in 8 hours. Its probably been at least 48 hours for me. That

means that I should have already pooped 6 times. Looks like I way behind.

The reason I'm not pooping can be attributed to several factors. (1) Not drinking 

enough water. (2) I'm not pooping because of a medication I take. I'm not taking 

any different medications right now. (3) Stress, but I'm never under stress. (4) I'm 

wound too tight whatever that means. It might mean pretty close to number (3). 

(5) Maybe I need to think more about doing it? Like concentrating. (6) I'm 

blocked up. (7) My large intestines has become unattached from from my small

intestines. (8) My small intestines has become unattached from my stomach.

(9) My anus is closed. (10) My hemorrhoids are enlarged and blocking my large

intestines. (11) I can't for the life of me think of anything else.

Standing at this computer on my dresser and typing my story of today would 

seem to me to relate to Newton's Law of Gravity. Meaning that my poop would

fall fast through my body. Don't that sound like common sense to you?

I'll keep you updated.

Update: (10:01 AM 1/15/2017 EDT). I just pooped and lost about 3 pounds. It's a 

an absolute miracle. An almost 15 inch long poop that looks like a brown 

foot-long hot dog with tapered ends and soft to the touch. What a delight.

SPORTS

*My predictions of the two playoff football games of yesterday were certainly 

not right on target. I predicted that the Seattle Seahawks would win over the 

Atlanta Falcons 31-28, but in the end the Falcons beat the Seahawks quite 

handily 36-20.

In the 2nd game of the evening, I predicted the New England Patriots would win

over the Houston Texans 35-13. The Patriots did win over the Texans 34-16.

Well, I guess 1 out of 2 ain't bad and to beat it all, my prediction of the Patriot/

Texan game was almost perfect.

*My prediction of today's playoff games are Packers 34, Cowboys 23.

In the night cap I predict the Steelers will win over the Chiefs 28 to 21.

I'm picking the underdog in both games.

Maybe I'll do better today.

*(5:46 AM 1/15/2017 EDT). I'm going to make my 2nd pot of coffee and then I'm

going outside to bring the weather gauge into the house. I will go out wearing 

shorts and barefooted because the gauge is just a little way out the enclosed

back porch on the deck.

*Took all the trash out and retrieved the weather gauge. The temperature is 26°,

the humidity is 79%, no wind to speak of and a frost is covering the land.

Looking at the weather gauge (7:36 AM 1/15/2017 EDT) I brought inside, it 

displays a temperature of 68°and a humidity of 51%. At this time I think I'll have

an Orleans sardine sandwich. My hair is so long that sometimes when I'm eating

I find myself chewing on a clump of hair.

*(8:07 AM 1/15/2017 EDT). I took the weather gauge outside in order to read the

outside weather later. The sun is showing a partial face, the frost, a thing of 

beauty, remains for me to see, the wind is silent and a passenger plane is 

moving north across the sky.

*It has been awhile since I went to Walmart in Wooster, but I need to go today

for a dehumidifier and some other things that both the house and I need.  And 

you know, like both you and I, I'll get twice as much as there are on my list.
