When I used the left one - the flicker went blink......blink......blink.....
Normal. But when I was turning right it went blink.blink.blink
(OK at this point I'm sure it is becoming apparent that I am a little low on clever blog posts tonight)
Anyway, I couldn't figure out what was wrong with the stupid blinker. I didn't know if it had a short in the wiring but since it was a busy day - I ignored it.
Not long after I got back to work after lunch, my phone rang. It was one of our Town Councillors. He said he was behind me on the way to work and my passenger side brake light was burnt out. Hmmm, I said thats funny cuz I'm having trouble with the blinker on that side too. He sort of laughed and then asked if it was blinking really fast. Yes.......... Apparently that is the warning signal that your brake lights are out!!!!
Seriously?? Did any of you know that?? Am I the only stupid one?? Geez, Who Knew?? Anyway, I thanked him for letting me know. I probably would have gotten a ticket from the police if it had been left to long. I stopped at the Chev dealership on my way home from work and its fixed. (Yes, they laughed at me too)
Really people - Does everyone know this??
Anyway - update on last night. Mom and I had the best evening. I got her bathed early and then we both put our jammies on. I put her pyjamas on the heating vent so they would be all toasty for her. Amazingly she didn't fuss all night. She was good as gold. We watched a little TV and we even had ice cream sundaes and cookies. And I did enjoy a couple of glasses of red wine. Actually goes great with chocolate chip cookies!!
It was a very relaxing stress free evening. It was just what the doctor ordered.
