Addendum to Murphy's Law (of my life): If it can go wrong, it will, and expensively.
Car is running again. But Car needed more than double the amount of things replaced then I'd thought. Which of course was more than doubly expensive.
If the foot and a half high ruts on the sidestreets don't get taken care of soon by Mr. Hickenlooper or Mother Nature, I'm going to have to buy an SUV. A really old, crappy one, because after fixing my front suspension yesterday because of the ridiculously rutty roads, I won't be able to afford anything else.
I am happy to have Car back.
Although I only had the rental for a few hours yesterday, it reminded me how much I love Car.
Yes, I realize that's a little odd. If only Car had slightly higher clearance, our love affair would never end.
