I'm going to miss that car! lol I jest.

But dang it!! I really wanted a Teruyasu!!!!!
Or a Moritaka.
Or a Takeda.
Or a Takamura.
Or a Kamo.
Or a Koishi.
AHHH the list is endless.


That sucks your car needs work when you have something else planned with the money. I couldn't go without my truck, no good public transportation by me, and ridding a bike is not a option with the current -30 wind chills.

What kind of repairs does it need? Most all repairs can be a DIY job. If it is a timing belt and waterpump even that can be done yourself. Mechanics just make it sound more intimidating than it actually is.

I'm not intimidated by it so much as I don't really have time to do it myself. When I was a teenager I spent a summer redoing a Chevy Camaro pretty much from bumper to bumper and my dad was a mechanic for 40 years before he died. I guess I should have become a mechanic. lol

I just kind of fell into cooking.

"Hey, you!"
Who, me?"
"Yeah, you want a job? Can you flip an egg? Get in here you're hired!"

I grew up across the highway from a diner.

Life isn't as hard as so much as it just sucks.
