The Security Guard that morning didn't help.
And my mechanic was being extra cautious.
They checked everything underneath, even something they call "height clearance."
Apparently from what two of the team said, that model is built that way. It allows for lots of "cargo." My back seat folds down, by the way, to allow for extra cargo, so when the truck gets filled, the car balances out.
I suppose after the year I’ve just experienced, and you all know what I’m talking about, maybe I’ve grown a bit over-cautious. Not quite paranoid, you understand, but perhaps close to it.
I love this guy and his team. He could have “taken me to the cleaners.” How wonderful is it to have a mechanic you can trust?
For those in my area, Las Vegas/Henderson, NV, here’s the info on him” Tune and Lube Repair Center, 4251 Boulder Hwy, Las Vegas, 89121. Don’t let the “tune and lube” mislead you - focus on the “repair” - he does it all, from clunkers like mine to high end vehicles. Here’s a link to the Facebook page. He’s got a 5 star rating at the local BBB, on Yelp, and other places.
What I love most is that if there are several things wrong, he will let you know which is most immediately needed, and then which should come next, and so on, letting you know how soon each should be done.
As for your prayers, I have a friend who calls the folks in her unofficial prayer chain her “prayer warriors.” I must think of an appropriate name for each of you - aha! My "prayer angels!" You have no idea how powerful your prayers are and how blessed I pray you will be because you think of others in this way, in spite of your own issues.
Hugs and prayers for all of you, always.
Lord Jesus, thank you so much for hearing our prayers. Bless each of these folks for their loving compassion, and bless them abundantly. Oh, and bless my mechanic, his team, and their loved ones as well.
