VW, ducks and a party

August 23rd, 2003

I’m starting to think my car is jinxed, people. First my issue with Walmart Tire & Lube on Monday (I didn’t post about it because I was so peeved, but you can check the details here), and now what happened today (read on) …

The first thing we did when we got into the car this afternoon was roll down all the windows to get a breeze. I heard this sick crackling noise coming from my front driver’s side window, and then I couldn’t get it to go back up! It was 12:35 pm so we drove straight to the closest VW dealership. We didn’t call first because I was sure they closed at 1 pm and wanted to get there in time.

When we got there we learned they were open til 4 pm, but they couldn’t look at my car right away. So we drove back home so Joe could get his van, and then we drove right back to the dealership to drop my car off.

Curious Swan Then we took the kids out to lunch and to the pond to feed the ducks. The big swan came out of the water and practically walked right into my lap which freaked me out. That picture posted above was not a zoom shot. He was RIGHT there. I was a bit nervous since swans can get very aggressive.

After we ran out of bread, we went to Walmart for a few things and then headed over to the dealership to pick up my car. Turns out the window reglator clips for the two front windows are made out of plastic and they broke off. I was informed that they were recalled (thank-you for notifying me VWoA) so they replaced both windows’ clips for free.

When we got home, Joe’s dad and aunt were waiting outside (we had told them we might be late because of my car). The girl opened her presents (she turned nine years old earlier in the week) and we had cake and talked for awhile. The girl liked her presents and everyone had a good time.

It’s been a long day and I’m looking forward to relaxing tomorrow. Maybe we’ll see a movie. Lately I haven’t been in the mood so we haven’t seen anything in over a month.

More pictures to be posted sometime tomorrow.
