No snow blowing will be required in the quasi-north. However, I may need to fire up the blower for tree debris (plus other cleanup). :(

Well, if Spring Training doesn't happen, I guess there's always college baseball. Tickets are free for the GCU Antelopes' home opener vs Nevada tomorrow!!!

A lot of the high end cars have memory seats, anyway. Or the service advisor can help the customer if they can't figure out how to adjust it.

You can't move the driver's seat in minivan #1. Well, I guess a mechanic probably could, but I'm not paying him to fix it, even though it would only take 5 minutes and a wire nut or a soldering iron.

My new friend in your area has been sending pics. Hard pass.

My neighbor said it took an hour and a half to get home tonight. Normal commute is 20’ or so.

Oh, I ignored that clown's rules. I got pretty good at driving cars with hand controls but we had a customer with extensions on the pedals, I couldn't drive that one. She had to move it around for us and we couldn't test drive it.

I never mastered those breathalyzer interlocks, though. Some of the other guys could start them but I didn't have the touch.

He said it was an oval; that doesn’t qualify as a crit to me. :innocent:

Snow blowing achievement earned.

My days of getting in and out of 20+ cars per day are over.

Grand Canyon University. They're in the WAC https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wester...tic_Conference
but they play some Mountain West teams (and maybe teams from other conferences too? I dunno, don't follow a ton of college baseball, before tomorrow night anyways.)

Thinking about founding East Coast University here in K-Town. What's a good nickname?

Mojo31 02-17-22 08:30 PM

Good idea. Come up with a good student loan program, and you will make bank.
