Hello. Welcome.

I'm a very determined kind of individual. Sometimes my determination is misplaced and things get very ugly. But, sometimes my determination leads to laughter, deep thoughts, and words on paper.

I write everything. I'm not very good at filtering ... so you will see it all. Maybe there will be a little inspiration for someone else along the way. I hope so. My sister also likes to guest blog and I'm sure you will appreciate her wit and wisdom.

car repair on a shoestring

....no, I don't think you understand.
I mean literally on a shoestring.

Yesterday, early in the morning before I left for school, I tied up my dangling car part with shoestring. Yep, I sure did.

I rummaged and rustled until I found shoestring and a piece of crafting wire and out to the haula I went to examine underneath the engine where this strange piece of protective plastic lay irresolutely on the ground. I pushed and shoved and jostled into place the shoestring (which was actually several tied together I had previously used to hang pictures in my room in Austin.

Who knew that a couple years later it would be holding a piece of my car together?

Here's the best part: It's still in tact!! Check out another from my long list of car stories: Bittersweet Taste of Humble Pie
