A Familar and Sad Sight

Some of you may remember a recent "issue" my momma had with our beloved truck, Big Red.

Well, Big Red, is not so beloved anymores.........cuz look what just happened with Big Red AGAIN (insert more HBO words here)

The last time Big Red broke down, Mr. Wealthy Repairman couldn't find any problem, cuz Big Red started up like a champ at da Repair Shop.  So, my momma took Big Red home......butt knew da real problem was not fixed.

And........TaaaDaaa!  Sure enough, Big Red broke down again.   

 Now Uncle Tommy-da Harley Man teached my momma how to BANG on da gas tank underneath to get Big Red moving again (how REDNECK can my momma look like........crawling under her truck in da office parking lot to BANG on truck parts??????   I am glad that I was not around to be associated with this behavior)
 butt, alas.....that trick no longer worked.    See above foto fur evidence.

Now in case you wondering why my momma did not take Big Red to Mr. Wealthy Repairman, instead of using da above BANGING technique........."Mr. Wealthy Repairman-who we will NEVER use again" said he would not work on Big Red again until it would not start at all.  WTH????   

 Needless to say, after being stranded AGAIN, Big Red is on his way to NEW Mr. Repairman (soon to be wealthy)
See you laters, Big Red.....  Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Now this was just a slight diversion in our preparations for Thanksgiving Day and all the fun posting pawties going on!     My momma and I are already enjoying the STORY OF ME that my furrends have posted.....and we be looking forward to see more!

And I think I have a new item to add to my shopping list for my momma (see above fotos) when I pawticipate in Frankie's Christmas Shopping Spree!

Buy a Ford! We know peeps are real loyal to truck brands...but, we have had every brand of pickup in our landscape business over the years.
We beat them up good and at the end of the day, the Fords always have less problems.
Hope Big Red gets well soon. Have a good Turkey Day!

So, I has been reading these stories and somebuddy should haves told me to stock up on da kleenex! But, they are all so beautifuls and touchiong and inspiring...thanks again fur doin' dis!

Twas da night before Thanksgivin' and all through da house, not a creature was stirring...not even a squirrel.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that Mr. Repairman soon would be there.

The doxies were burrowed all snug in their beds,
While visions of rednecks danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and Uncle Tommy in his cap,
Had just settled their brains for a long winter’s nap.

Oh noes! I just had to put a thermostat in my car (money money) and the new computer system they put in a couple of months ago is bad, so they have to replace it on Tuesday. Fortunately, that's free under warranty, but it cost me $750 the last time!!!!

I hope Big Red recovers soon.

The Oceanside Animals said...

Bye bye, Big Red! Hope you are feeling better soon! Tell the new repairman to enjoy the yacht he's going to be buying!

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Sorry to hear about Big Red! (Although tell your Mom not to feel like too much of a redneck - she's just a responsible owner... it's like when Mom pulled a race-standard tire gauge out of her Jeep to check her tire pressures at a grocery store because the car "felt weird" (one tire was down 3lbs...).) Happy Thanksgiving to you!!!

How sweet of you to wave goodbye and wish Big Red a Happy Thanksgiving! He is sure to be very lonely without his office mom and the rest of his family tomorrow! Poor thing! We have had our share of rich repairman and I'd love to know where all of the poor but honest ones are, wouldn't you?

♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

Your poor red truck. May it RIP. Mommy has told my adoption story so many times but we sure would like to win $50.00 for Pilgrim @ ATDR so I'll get her to do it again tomorrorw.

Hi Minna Krebs:

Happy Thanksgiving,

Another rich repairman? Oh boy. It's time for a new car!


Alien said...

Perhaps I can fix your traveling machine? I'm good at fixing spaceships....

By the way, Sallie and I did a post in honor of your celebration. Here is the link. Happy Birthday!

I'm glad you found a NEW Mr. Repairman (soon to be wealthy). It sounds like that old one had no clue what he was doing. Hopefully the new one will be able to figure out what's wrong and get it fixed once and for all! And hopefully it won't cost you an arm and a leg either.

Hope you had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
