Yesterday we received a rather large check from the Fed-Ex man...wasn't that nice of him? ;)
After running to the bank, we had to pick up Big D's crank, pistons, etc., etc., etc.... After dropping over $1K on these parts and other necessities, we had to go to Walmart because naturally, on the day that everyone is calling to see if Big D got his parts, our phone stopped working!
While at Wally's getting a new phone, we had to fill 2 prescriptions for Vicki (ear infection) and we decided to eat some McDonald's inside Wally's while waiting for the pharmacy to finish up her prescriptions. (Bad idea...I'm starting to hate McD's)
Let me back the story up a little bit. Big D had to use my car yesterday to take Vicki to the doctor. So it was a mad dash in the a.m. to get me to the bus terminal so I could get to work. But I didn't miss the bus! (Yay!)
Vicki's appointment was at 4:20, and my bus came in at 5:30. Mr. Fed-Ex guy came at precisely 3:00. I got off the bus, jumped in the car and Mr. Big D drove like a jackhole in a stolen Ferrari to get me to the bank by 6:00. No issues, we got there safely. Then we had to make a mad dash all the way over to Cave Creek Road to get to RamJets to pick up his parts. We made it with plenty of time to spare, thanks to Mario Andretti. My poor Buick will never be quite the same.
Before going to Wally's we stopped at home to drop off the parts. While there we checked to see if we missed any calls. We had like 12 missed calls. Mostly from people here wanting to know if Big D got his parts yet, and if we were going to Yuma Friday. There was one call from Mr. Joker. It was now 7:00 in AZ, 9:00 in MA. I called Joker back and explained that we had been running around like maniacs, but assured him that I would pick him up at the airport as scheduled Thursday night. He said he could take a cab and I said, "Out of the question."
Anyway, I had to tell you all that to get to this:
When I went to bed last night at 10:30, this is what the bike looked like:
When I woke up at 4:30 today, this is what I saw:
Is he the fucking MAN or what?! I said, "When will it be finished?" He replied, "Tomorrow afternoon." Hmmm. I said, "Friday afternoon?" He said, "I haven't been to bed yet, so tomorrow is Thursday for me." So, the Annabelle should be back up and running today. And after spending that much money on her, she better not break down anytime soon! I don't think there's anything left to fix on her anyway!
I'll have another update later today. Peace out!
