I had set aside a little money, and was tossing around a couple of options. Pay some things off. Maybe take a little trip. Update the ol' wardrobe.
My car was kind enough to decide for me. New starter and a new serpentine belt.
An afternoon trip to Rockford turned into two days, a rented Buick, reworn clothing, and a revamped week's schedule.
It would only have been more fun if it had been less expensive by hundreds and hundreds of dollars.
