I bet you thought I knew how to turn windshield wipers on in a car. Well I guess I don't. Maybe I should explain. If you remember from my older blog, I had a blowout on the Jeep and it tore up the fender liner and some of the fender trim. The fender liner done disappeared but the trim was partially hanging on to the fender. I removed the fender parts and took the Jeep up to the Geiko claims center. They said it would take up to three days to get the parts in and get it fixed properly, so they gave me a rental car to drive. It is a Fiat. I seemed to be able to drive it OK but then it started to rain. Guess what, I couldn't find where to turn on the windshield wipers. I did find where to turn on the rear window wiper and did so. My wife suggested that I drive the rest of the way home in reverse going backwards so that I could see were I was going. I was going to but couldn't find a place to turn around (grin).
I got home and the wife Googled it and I watched the video. Dang, it is like a combination to open a safe. Hey, I am old and I like things simple. This wiper control is not simple. Anyway, it is cold and rainy, unlike the last few beautiful days when the frogs were singing. Of course the frogs love the rain but not the cold. I guess those 70 and 80 degree days we had have spoiled me. It is still winter, right? At least the birds are enjoying the bird feeders and are giving me a show at the same time. I smeared Vaseline on the small metal post that holds the bird feeders to keep the squirrels off the feeders. My wife tells me that it is comical when they leap as high as they can, grab a tight hold on the bar, and slowly slide back down to the ground. Now, you all have a great day today, you hear?
