It gets Worse!

I was driving Frank home from school (because he can't drive with the splint) when suddenly POOF, out came a cloud of greasy liquid from the front corner of the car! It had been making a small whiny noise earlier in the day. This is what it looked like inside:

I e-mailed the Handy Husband several messy pictures and he talked with the dealer (who had just serviced the car on Monday for $1400!). They say it was a radiator hose or clamp that blew. They are sending a tow truck.

Some better news, after a doctor's visit: Frank's wrist is slightly better and is only sprained. He has an ace bandage instead of the splint. Yay!

Since I am now carless, and Frank's wrist is too sore to use the stick shift, I am going to steal his car for the weekend! He can drive his dad's automatic truck if he has to.

As someone wise once told me, if it wasn't for bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck at all.

Good news about the wrist and mended teeth.

We'll hope for good news about the car.

When it rains it pours. Hopefully it will look up soon and Frank has a fun sporty little car to tool around in for the weekend.

No, Frank gets a boring old Ford -150 and I get the fun sporty little car (mini cooper)! Whoo-hoo!
