My Ford Ranger pick-up truck, which I have been driving forever, had to be towed to a garage for repairs. I have had the truck for about 12 years and it has been very good to me, requiring only minor repairs and maintenance.
The clutch has finally gone, and there are several other minor problems that need to be addressed. Together I am looking at a repair bill of over $1,000. Considering that I have not made a car payment in 12 years I consider myself way ahead in the game.
People who have owned vehicles for a long time develop a relationship with them, and I am no different. I am eventually going to have to sell her (see I told you you develop a relationship) and she will be missed and much appreciated. But for now I look forward to getting her back as I have been without wheels since we got back from vacation in Hawaii.
In other news, we had a beautiful installation service for our new pastor, Marty Phillips. As a church elder I was asked by Marty to help perform communion for him, a real honor. The church was filled with Marty’s family and friends and it was a beautiful service. We are very lucky to have Marty as our new pastor and I look for great things to come for our church with Marty as our spiritual leader.
That’s it for now.
