    Default Been a busy day...

    I was heading to my hometown(100 miles away) to go get my wedding license and pay off the wedding hall. I was pulling away from a bank and saw a large water puddle where my truck was. So I popped the hood and found the return line from my heater had broken away from the firewall due to a broken plastic nipple. I was able to bypass the heater by going to the walmart net door and buying a 6" by 1/2" stainless steel shower head elbow and shoving it into the hose ends. Then I got to drive the 100 miles and got the license and paid out the rest of the money to the wedding hall. So I just kept losing money eft and right.

    Enjoy the process of the marriage, try not to focus on the money so much. I know it's hard, but remember a happy wife is necessary for a happy marriage. Let her live it up some, and grats in advance.

    Awesome fix on the leak by the way. Good thing it's not winter right now.

    Thanks for the congrats. And yeah, I try not to worry about the money, just a lil hard with me having the only income. And yeah, I'm just glad I didn't get on the interstate before noticing the leak. And don't worry about winter, I barely used it since I'm in south LA.

    I hear ya..
    AND I HATE YOU.. Heat to us is what AC is to you up here in Northern MN... WE NEED Heat... I get to try and flush my heater core, and if that fails then i need a new one since my heat even in 30degree weather doesnt get real warm... And you never see cold enough to turn it on..
    gotta rib ya some... Congrats on the marrage.. i

    Thanks guys. And I feel lucky to need A/C instead of heat because I cannot stand cold. I'm ok if theres no wind, but when a little breeze picks up, I'm heading inside.
