Just Saved Money

Quick story – Jess and I had some discussions today about the next few weeks. I let her know that I was sort of convinced that I was going to need to buy a new floor jack. Not every one needs a floor jack, but since we do alot of the maintenance on our cars, and considering we have 5 vehicles and a trailer, a jack is nice. Anyway, the old one (26 years old with all original seals) was not working anymore and I couldn’t figure out how to fix it. Well, I decided to give it one last shot because if I could fix it in less than 4-6 hours, then it would be worth my time. But if not, then at least I tried. Short story boring, I FIXED IT! So I saved money!! Woohoo!

The big risk is that having a floor jack that acts up is a risky thing because more often than not, jacking a car up means you want to get underneath it. The good news is that I have lots of jack stands, so I will definitely be making sure the car is secure before I climb under it.

    Reminds me of that commercial where the guy is singing along to the radio and the truck falls off and I think crushed the radio. Then it’s quiet for a second and the guy starts singing again.

    Some sort of motor oil ad.

  2. Is your jack older than Jessica?
