Good Tuesday morning to all you mylotters up early like me. It’s going to be a gorgeous day here again at around 73 degrees and sunny. We’ve been helping my brother look for a car. His brakes went out and Firestone told him he needed over two thousand dollars worth of work done. Then they “recommended” another three thousand. So Bernie went up there and yes, they tried to “pad the estimate” as they say. So it’s better for him to just get a different used car. There are many nice ones out there too. I’ll be off and on here again today. Let’s all make it a wonderful day.

@crazyhorseladycx My husband knows about cars somewhat so he will be advising my brother. Even when I was alone and bought my own used cars, I checked it out inside out. I get underneath the car and look at it, the tires, pop open the hood, looking for rust or old parts, anything I can find. And I always get a carfax report.

@Rosekitty I don't like ants in the house either. For a couple years they were coming in the side of the house. I don't like to find them in my closet on my clothes. I had to have Terminex come out for a few years.

@Rosekitty They can smell anything. I haven't had any in the kitchen but they like dog food. So I always check the food bowls when I go by them. Bad enough having them in the closet and on the windowsills in the bedrooms. I would freak out if I saw them in the kitchen.

I hope your brother is able to find a car. I don't like car shopping but I love the outcome.

Thank you @simone10. I like to car shop. I've seen at least five cars that I'd like to have. Bernie said no. I wish I had the money to just buy him a good used car but he'll have to take out a small loan. Lots of cars out there in the 3 thousand price range, so that's good.

I suppose could always take it to an independent mechanic just to see what it might cost, but if its already old anything over that 2-3K mark is almost always a newer used car easier. and shees, 5K. There are brand new cars out there for 8!

@Jessicalynnt Yes that is so true so no use putting it all into a 2000 chevrolet. He can get a newer one for the price of the repairs almost.

It is nice here too right now, not to hot. just right. It is supposed to be 71 and it is 67 right now. This is so nice, as the summer was extremely hot, so I am glad for the cool weather.
