And Which of the Other Shoes is Going to Drop?

I have been worried that something will go wrong and of course it has to be with my car. Friday when I picked up my granddaughter from daycare, she said "grampy's truck!" My husband's truck is loud. Yeah, my muffler is getting loud. Yay me. Hubby looked online for the muffler and found the prices to be very high. So his time will be spent this week looking for the best price to replace the muffler. He will do the work himself so we will be saving the cost of labor. Thankfully the other shoe that would cost us much more (furnace replacement) hasn't dropped. Hubby was able to fix that at little cost.

I know what you mean about repairs on anything these days. They charge a fortune. That's why i haven't had anything done in my apartment yet. The cost. I wish I was handy with things like that, but I'm not. I hope you find that muffler at a good price.

@inertia4 we had hoped to have it all done before fall. However, it looks like our plans will have to be put off until spring. He will be able to put a bandaid on the problem with the floor, but it will look like heck.
Coincidental, I asked my hubby why his SUV sounds so awful, and he thinks that his muffler is going on it too. But we've got so many kilometers on it that we hate to replace the muffler since we feel its on its last legs. But I'm sure that in a few weeks he'll have to take it in for a replacement.

Car parts are getting crazy high. We have taken to checking on Rock Auto, many many times even with shipping they are the cheapest around. And they ship really fast. You might want to take a look at them online. My son needed a radiator the parts store around here wanted like 120 bucks, we got a brand new one on Rock Auto for 60 bucks and like 10 bucks shipping.
