Murphey’s Law Reversed

We only get rain a few days a year here.  When we do it is often at night.  This creates an occasional problem because I consistently neglect my dried out and heat battered windshield wipers.  Then when it does rain, I can’t see, but it doesn’t last long so I just drive carefully, promise myself I’ll remember to replace them this time, then forget for another six months.

We did our safety inspection early this year, and I actually remembered to replace my wipers rather than get another warning.  This was all one week before it rained!

Cars

Nothing earth shattering today, but a big help is the fact that our car passed safety inspection with no problem.

The car is 22 years old, has 244,000 miles, and does not come with a car payment.  We’ve never had it not pass safety inspection in all the time we have owned it!  Two of our boys have crashed the doors, but those were inexpensive fixes and no one got hurt.  We love our old clunker, and it looks like we’ve got another year with it!
