Tuesday was installation of fuel pump number 4!!!! Four fuckin pumps! It began on a trip back from Des Moines, my vehicle died horendously! Replaced the fuel filter(*I always go from the cheapest, to the utmost expensive!)Got a second hand pump from a wrecking yard(1). Didn't work. Bought a new one, installed it(2). Worked a week, then died. An 80 dollar tow a block and a half. Got another. This time it came with an upgraded wiring harness, due to the oem harness failing.Dropped the tank, installed another. The sensor on top of the new one dropped off while attaching the harness(3). Took it back. Waited this following Tuesday to pick up a new one. The roomie and a friend installed it, and used dialectic gell on the electrical connections(*pump 4 , not including the origional). *Knock on wood, so far so good! I so need to go to town to x-mas shop. But I have to regain faith in my vehicle for traveling distances! If it broke down away from home, I may as well leave it where she lays!
Next Sat is our companies X-mas party! Didn't know if I wanted to attend. Not like I can stand most of my jobs employees! I don't go huntin or fishin, or give two rats asses about sports!But free food and booze are always welcome:P
Another year minus a significant other during the holidays. That makes 7 in a row!On a better note. My middle brother may be coming to visit for the holidays. Haven't seen him in 6 years(*talk frequently though). That ought to be good:)
Coffee and shower time, with a head shaving beforehand.......
