I got my copy of Tertia's book and I found out I was right about what was wrong with Vic's car. Wait, I didn't tell you about what happened to *Millbarge, did I? On Friday, I had been out running errands and the car was running beautifully. That afternoon, Vic went out to run to the store and when he stuck the key in the ignition, Millbarge didn't start. Everything turned on like it should but it didn't start. Hell, Millbarge didn't even make the clicking noise you usually get when a starter has gone bad. I told Vic (and the tow truck driver) that it sounded like someone had just disconnected or disabled the started. Turns out one single little wire had come loose and, once our mechanic reconnected it, Millbarge is once again running like a dream. Yay...no multi hundred dollar mechanic's bill!
*Millbarge is the name that was picked for Vic's car in the name our car contest.
**Tertia's book is great!!! It reads just like her blog.
