Marty is on the money with the vicious swinging wrench !
Well almost ! It sounds like the solenoid on top of the starter motor. Give that a solid tap with a boondy stick and away you go. Be aware that eventually it will refuse to co-operate !

@Jacy ... my sympathies.

Hello Jess, Jacy and Shep!

Should be flying through the door soon to go to my appointment. Good thing the Doctor is so good looking and pleasant. It helps. LOL

Read your replies in here and chuckled.

I'm scared, someone hold me! LOL I don't wanna go. Noooo! Don't make me! Time for some deep breaths. OMG, You'd think I was a kid or something. Oh no, my Sister called and is on her way to get me! Ahhhhh!

Wow, I posted that message then got totally lost in lala land...er, work. LOL

Night I'm sure the doctor's appointment will go fine. Praying for you, dear elf.

Timely - there is something oddly satisfying about pounding on a car, though, yes?

I'm just glad it's Friday!

I only know one trick for a starter. Beat it!

Strangely it is one of those things that will make you feel better and might fix it (just a temp fix). Pop the hood and smack it with a wrench. It usually moves it enough for the teeth to grab



Morning all!

This reminds me of my uncles van from years ago.

I got in and he took off the engine shroud(?) between the seats
and handed me a hammer.

Uncle: "Stick the handle down there and pull back."
Me: "What?"

Apparently he was getting it started by leveraging the teeth
of the starter together. I'm not a car handy person, so the
request seemed ludicrous, and even dangerous. (it wasn't).

Another time, when it was winter and the van wouldn't start,
he put a hibachi (a small coal barbecue) under the engine to
warm it up.

anyway, have a great day everyone!

I see no Jacy so I am assuming either the wrench worked or it made her feel good enough to start dancing and the crowd has grown to sizes that she is unable to let us know...
So it's either

She's moving through town happy as can be

Or she's been stopped

and is pissed

A KISS IN THE RAIN

It's when the rain comes down,
I drift away in the noise.
Just noise... background tinkling & chatter.
Distant rumbles, no sense, no logic, no voice.

They grey skies melt and merge,
No single cloud, no shape, no definition.
A blank canvas for the mind to drift into...
Like a void... an echo chamber for blurry old memories.

So, I'll rummage about in the loft,
Dig up my old record player, (yes I know).
And, I'll dust off some musty old record sleeves,
Filled to the brim each one, with a memory... a smile... a kiss... a tear.

I'll pull the black disc from its covers with a "swoosh"
and smile as I recognise the label, like an old long-lost friend.
I'll turn it against the light, making sure there's no dust in the spiral scratch.
Then plop it onto the mat, click off the safety latch, lift the arm over and...

Flump, It's working! Tick, tick, crackle...
Then that old familIar stomp on the bass pedal.
I feel myself nodding with the beat, pulled in with the first note of the bass guitar.
I'm there, in the moment as the guitars come in and rise to their melodic crescendo.

I've travelled 35 years in 10 seconds...
All the lads, singing along (badly!) at the tops of our voices,
Girls laughing... One girl smiling, shyly.
The race of our hearts, a bead of sweat, a tremor of fear.

That first touch. The electricity in the air.
The smell of her hair spray and perfume,
My arm around her waist as we sway to the flash of the lights.
And then, suddenly... the moment arrives and we pull closer.

The fear disappears, we stare so deep and so long,
A moment in time, yet it spans a lifetime.
Our lips meet and... my heart leaps, my head spins, my knees go weak.
Growing up... first kiss, first love, a story that's been told a thousand times.

Brought to life by the rain, blank skies and an old song on my record player.


Happy Friday!
G

Hi Jessie,
Some doughnuts are on their way.... (Guinness flavoured with Baileys frosting!)

It's just been..... yeah. A bit "hectic" in RL these past few days.
Busy busy busy week, but I needed it.

Now officially knackered and chilling with some old vinyl records.

((Stops to quickly give *squishies* to Shep, Night Star, Timely, shlaw & Gordi))

Marty...I'm dying laughing at your pics...but actually, it was more like this:



I followed some directions that I found on a Saturn owners car site...and it worked!!! I grabbed my coffee and donut, did some errands and finished with MIL's lunch! I am now home to relax and pat myself on the back, lol.

Is anybody home??

*waves "hello" to LucidWarrior*

Hey Gordi!!
Yes, when I turned the key it was turning over for a long time before eventually starting. I thought at first that it was the starter itself dying.
Did a little research and followed the advice that I could understand (it was a car maintenance site, so very techy talk) and it actually worked great!!

How are you doing? Spinning some tunes and reminiscing? (real life can be such a biatch, eh??)

I'm doing good actually.
Just been REALLY busy and my auld bones are protesting a wee bit!

I found an old box of my vinyl records when we were clearing out a cupboard upstairs, so I dug out an old turntable and am having a very pleasant evening spinning some disks!
Man, it takes me back.

When was the last time you played some vinyl records?
