Rough morning here too...got to bed around 12:00 am...woke up around 4am in a lot of pain and the sound of thunderstorms...didn't get back to bed till 7am....felt like 15 minutes had past and it was 7:55...had to get up to go to the Dr.

Got a refill of Vicodin and an order to report for physical therapy 3x/week for 3 weeks to start. I hope the girls in there are cute at least...you know...to ease the pain.

My first vehicle was a 2000 GMC Sonoma...my first year with it...I had to replace the entire front end...I went to a shop to get an alignment and they said..."ummm...sir...everything underneath there is loose...we could charge you for an alignment, but it won't hold past you getting out of our drive way."

Dad paid for my truck...he said that bill was on me...$1,200...blech.

While we are on the subjects of cars/engines and spark plugs....We have a 2002 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4.0L 80k miles....It starts and then you can hear it cut out...it keeps running but acts like it hiccups...could it be fouled plugs...

Don't think its bad gas...just all of a sudden happened. We haven't checked the plugs in awhile...so was wonderin' what y'all thought as to what the problem could be.

My Wrangler needs to be inspected. It ran out in Oct or Nov, I think.

My c6 was the same way, but got her inspected 2 weeks ago. Gotta see about getting new rear tires for her.

That's all I got.
