    Last week was not much fun in the Priester household.

    Two of our vehicles went down to various problems within a 24-hour period.

    The adventure to pick Derek up from the bike mechanic’s shop was, well, lengthy and frustrating. What should have been a 2.5 hour “quick” trip, turned into more than four.

    Then, the next morning, as I drove our truck in to get a repair, it overheated.

    On Tuesday. Our busiest day of the week.
