Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Stuck in BFE

Lab Kat here, blogging on behalf of Army of Mom.

As you know the AoM family was headed to Seaworld in San Antonio over the weekend. Unfortunately, on the way back today, the vehicle died in what AoM termed "BFE outside of San Antonio." The vehicle has been acting snotty lately and it picked right now to die. I was not privy to all the names it was called, but I'm sure the paint has been peeled back. When I spoke to AoM, it had been towed by some redneck who informed them that it would be really bad if it was the evaporator core because "the last time someone had that problem, we didn't have 'em." Nice. Always good to get reassurance from Bubba. Sometimes you just want to turn around and reply "Why do you even open your mouth except to drink beer and belch?"

This will delay her surgery for the catheter insertion, scheduled for tomorrow. I asked her to call me tomorrow, so I may be providing an update then. Hopefully, it will be AoM herself.

On behalf of her and the entire AoM family, I ask for your good thoughts and prayers through this.

    Wasn't evaporator core. I have no idea what he said before. AoD will know and post it here. I am so REALLY bad about car stuff that I don't remember what he said, but who knows what I told LabKat because I was so freaked out.

    Cashin is right it wasn't the evaporator core. We thought that it was the fuel pump since the engine just died while we were driving (pulling out of traffic on a rural Texas highway with little steering and brakes sucks). Turns out the timing belt broke. Of course they didn't have that part and had to send off for it too. We didn't leave there yesterday until 5:30 and we finally got home around 11 last night.

    LabKat - thanks for doing this when you felt like poop. I just knew "enquiring" minds would want to know.

    Sorry to get the details wrong. I was under gastrointestinal distress at the time.

    I'm glad you guys are back safe.
