Ever tried tracing an electrical issue in a new german vehicle? It'll grind your gears.

Electrical gremlins always grind gears. Power probes make it a lot easier tho

My brother has a livewire ts that he hasn't used in a couple years since he doesn't have a mustang anymore. Bad thing is it's married to his old car. Bama says you have to send it to sct to get it unlocked, $150.. then you can get the tunes for life, $150. Not sure I wanna spend $300 without just getting a new one. Or if I even want to get a tuner now.

My neighbor and friend and I out patching holes in the road in our little community because the county says they have no money to fix our roads so our community pooled together for us to buy some cold patch to fix the pot holes and the other people who don't contribute to the Village Association coming buy saying "I was going to do that".

I do not dislike winter, but I'd rather have a drink in my hand and my feet in the sand instead of bundled up trying to stay warm..

Snows up here in the far Northern part of California. We got lots this year.
What ground some gears today was, wife got up from breakfast, didn't realize her foot had gone to sleep, stepped forward, foot rolled, off to the emergency room we went. Broke her fifth metatarsal and some nasty bruising. 6 weeks.

That's what I keep telling the "Q"-tips that come to Florida; go to California instead.

"Q"-tip - Retired person with white hair (all you see over the head rest of their front seat when driving and blocking traffic).

With all the flooding there's several bridges and roads ruined nearby. Only way to town or work is a few mile trip down a shady dirt road that avoids all the bad areas. Mustang isn't going anywhere for a while...

When I'm selling stuff on Craigslist, say firm price, but willing to meet near by. (I'm kinda in far from everything) and then get hit with a low ball.... I know what my stuff is worth and what I paid. It's priced accordingly

Buy some dog treats, stop for a minute, introduce your self to the old fart, try to think it maybe all the other idiots on your road that don't have any respect. I'm an an fart that walks his dog in the morning, but I pay attention to what cars and people are doing the offensive speeding in our little village. He may not.
