We got a little dusting of snow again this evening. 😀🌨️❄️❤️

Our VW Jetta GLI.

We got our VW Jetta GLI into the shop today to have the check engine light looked at…

And now we’re up and running again. They had to replace the thermostat and a valve that had an slight oil leak. I got to hang out over by Xavier pretty much all day and it’s never cheap. But at least it’s fixed again and we’re back on the road. 😀🚘🔧❤️

57,999.

The odometer on our 2008 VW Jetta GLI rolled over 58,000 miles this morning taking Mack to the vet. And we needed gas in a hurry. 😀🚘❤️

Pause for paws.

Oscar was watching us from the back seat of our car when we stopped at Sidewinder to get coffee this morning…

He was riding with us because he had a vet appointment later in the morning. He’s been having allegery issues with his ears. Poor guy. 😀☕️🐾❤️

Some Saturday errands.

We ran some errands late this morning into the early afternoon. We ran over to the Westside to sign our taxes and get those in the mail. We’re happy to report that we’re looking forward to a pretty nice return from the federal but we owed a little to the state. So we’re happy that taxes are done for another year. From there, we ran over to Tire Discounters on North Bend Road. We’ve been having a slow leak in our passenger rear tire. It’s never gone completely flat because we kept putting air in it. But then a few days later the tire pressure warning light would come back on. While we were waiting for our tire to be fixed, we spied a Skyline down the street. So instead of waiting in the tire waiting room, we walked down the road and had lunch at Skyline! Genifer and I haven’t had Skyline together in forever…

While we were at Skyline, Genifer found this sticker in Swarm that we didn’t know existed. And it’s funny because well, it’s named Oscar…

Mmmm, cheese coneys…

The tire place said your rear tires had near bald spots on them so we had the rear tires replaced. So now we have four brand new tires on our car and we should be good on the whole tire thing for a while again…

Errands aren’t that much fun. Buying new tires isn’t that much fun either. But the Skyline was outstanding. 😀🧀🌭❤️

#TBT Pause for paws.

Milan used to love going on car rides…

Always remembering the good times with the bud dog. 😀❤

Genifer took this photo today. Our car said it was 81º outside this afternoon…

I don’t know that it was that warm outside today. But it was definitely in the mid-70s. And whatever the temperature actually was, it was definitely way warmer than it should have been for a day in the middle of February. And we liked it. A lot. 😀🌡️❤️

Our VW Jetta GLI.

Yesterday morning, our VW Jetta GLI wouldn’t start. Luckily, we could use Genifer’s mom car to get to work. And wouldn’t you know it, our Jetta started right up when I got home from work. I made an appointment to get it looked at this morning and we dropped it off on our way to work. It needed a new battery. I also had them replace the front tires, rear brakes and got it a 50,000-mile tune-up. And it was all set to be picked up this afternoon. I got to ride a new bus, Metro’s Rt. 4 to go pick up our Jetta right by Xavier’s Cintas Center. It was a piece of cake…

It’s been such a great car. I love it every bit as much now as I did when I first got it almost 9 years ago…

It’s good to have it back. Hopefully, it’ll be good to go for another 50,000 miles! 😀🚘❤️

52,000.

The odometer on our 2008 VW Jetta GLI hit 52,000 miles

Not too shabby for a car I bought all the way back in November 2008. 😀🚘❤️

50,000!

Even our clock says pm, this morning the odometer on our 2008 VW Jetta GLI finally went over 50,000 miles

It’s been such a wonderful car. Here’s to the next 50,000 miles! 😀🙌👏❤️
