This weekend, Steven and I had a chance to work on his Handyman badge for Cub Scouts. He had to check the tires on his bike and a car, lube his bike chain, change a light bulb in a car and the house and change a tire and check the oil on a car. Volkswagen's are great to learn how to check the oil on because they always need some. Steven did great. I wish I had grabbed the camera earlier but I managed to get the oil and tire part of it. Steven actually checked the oil on both the bugs and added a 1/2 a quart in each one. Here he is checking the dip stick.

I started checking out bus routes and what bus fare is nowadays because 3 of the 4 cars we have were down for the count. The new transmission that was installed in my truck was throwing a code and surging on the freeway, Tugger the baja was down still with the engine and pedal cluster removed and Ed the bug was running horribly and about ready to die. I figured it was time to do something about the collapse in our transportation. I swore when I got off my mission I wouldn't ride the bus again! Anyways this picture was when ed was running good and I needed to get some mulch for the trees in our yard. The roof rack came in handy. The truck is full of scrap metal and I didn't want to remove it.
