This blog is to be a few lines, every now and then, to describe my life. I am writing this blog to have a record of my life. I would love to read of the lives of my parents and grandparents. It is amazing how easily we can forget the dates and years when you don’t write a record. It is also my desire to respect others and follow the standards that are set out in the Bible for our benefit. This blog will not be a platform for my religious beliefs, and as one of Jehovah's Witnesses, it is not difficult for anyone to get this information. We will deliver it to your door, or you can find it at http://www.watchtower.org/ .
Saturday, Alex told me that the brakes on the car were making noise. So I drove the car around and they seemed OK, but were making a little noise in the rear. I jacked it up and put stands under the back and took the wheel off the right side. When I pulled the drum off, pieces of broken springs fell out. The brake adjusting lever was bent and the piece that separates the shoes was also bent. The drum was scratched and shoes were also chewed up. I went to the auto parts store and bought a brake hardware kit and shoes and a new drum. However; the separator piece was a dealer item. So, I went to the GMC dealer across the street and ordered the piece. I won't get it till Tuesday. So, the car is on vacation till then. We finished the day by going to our friend David and Carol's house for a fish fry. Very good time and a welcome break from the brakes.
