Three out of the four elements....
And none of them are good:P

* Air. That would be what's been leaking from my right rear tire for the past couple of weeks.  It was a slow leak until it wasn't: four quarters for air last weekend kept me going all week, until Friday, when the damn sensor went off again. This time, I got two days out of the topoff, and the PSI back there registered damn close to 10 (it should be mid 30s) when I brought it in for a Real Fix.  Not sure if this will be a repair, or replacing both rear tires; I need all four, but can't do the full job today, with estimated taxes due tomorrow and the renovation continuing to cost.  I've been here since 2 when they scheduled me for, and they've yet to move the car out of the spot I parked it in.

Until then, it's burgers on the grill tonight (assuming we haven't upended the lid to use as an ark), and we'll manage a few more nights after that if we have to.

And that's all I've got for now, trying, as I always do, to keep these entries down to

* Earth;)
