Drove a few hundred miles in my car. Also took a friend's Cabrio out for a run. Got honked at because I stopped at a right on red to make sure no cars were coming. Light turned green the moment I stopped so **insert derogatory term here** behind me decides to lay on the horn at the moment I hit the gas again. Thankfully I was in someone else's car or I'd have propped it right into park right then and there and waited a few minutes to give them an example of what waiting is.

Oh and there was a car coming but it didn't run the light like everyone around here does.

Operation update, there were complications, upper back was a success but now where spine joins sacrum needs to be immobilized, vertebra is sliding down sacrum, pinching nerves. So much for her gymnastics classes.

Taking mine on a roadtrip to NW Iowa this weekend for my grandson's 1st birthday. He's carrying B-day presents and 4 Dozen of my homemade Tamale's for the birthday party.

10 hour drive each way.

Had to go back to the dealer for a "check engine" light, only after 500 miles. Turns out, they claim, it was the gas cap not screwed on correctly. (We don't pump our own gas in NJ). Yes, I had fueled up prior to the light coming on.

Comments?

Pump jockey probably does it intentionally to cars they dislike. Just a guess, speculation.

Today I changed the oil and filter on our green smart, to celebrate reaching 145,000 miles. I usually change the oil at about 4500-5000 mile intervals even though the car would let me go to 6000+.

On my low mileage all white car, I change it at 3000 miles....
