Ted’s essays

Ted’s auto shop open for business

I haven’t had this since moving from Idaho to Montana. No big deal, but sometimes the little things are bigger than they look.

The “shop annex” extension we put in last summer gave me the ability to do auto work in my shop. That little space made a big difference.

Today Missy bought me a mechanics rolling stool in exchange for me swapping her Mercedes from winter to summer shoes.

Good deal for both of us.

I pulled off the tire swap without blowing out my knees. That has not happened for years. Nice to know a simple, inexpensive tool can extend my mechanical capabilities.
