Well the truck is fixed...

You didn't even know it was busted, did you?

Well it was. Yesterday evening on my way home from the car driving gig, it stopped backing up, that is, 1 wheel, the left front wheel, stopped rolling in reverse. I had to have it towed to a garage... Grr!

Turns out the caliper slide pins on that wheel had seized into the caliper mount and ruined the brake pads and the rotor. Getting fixed at the Firestone store cost $552 tonight! Argh! But everything's fixed now and I was able to get it home tonight. I am very soon- I suppose in January, going to have to put rotors and pads on the back of the truck. One of the pads back there is getting very thin and apparently the caliper back there needs attention too. But I'll plan on fixing all that on my own time just as soon as I can afford it.

I didn't want to Christmas shop this year anyway!
