Working on the Nissan Maxima…

As some of you already know, our car died last week and we had planned to work on removing the alternator this weekend. I have never worked on a car before but we didn't let that stop us.We had our little manual for the job, it showed photos and directions for getting the tasks accomplished so we bundled up.

This "holiday weekend" sucked!!

I am usually working on holidays which means I am waiting on other people, ensuring they have a wonderful time and all that… Holidays mean overly excited people who are usually also very picky and impossible to please.. I am sure you can already tell that my holiday weekend did not go that great. I went down to Phoenix for my brother's graduation. We are so proud of him, we went out for ice cream to celebrate and then we went to the Scottsdale courthouse to take care of my other brothers warrant. All that went fine and it was nice to see the family. At about 7:30pm I was heading back up the hill to flagstaff. I had planned to head home at right about sundown...
