I thought I'd gotten away from this...

Just sitting around the market waiting for customers and trying to stay cool. With all the rain a couple nights ago there is still lots of mud outside it's very muggy.

We're going seven days a week now and I'm not too sure what my schedule is going to be. I jumped at early retirement to get away from those hours and I don't really want to go back to them in my old age. Maybe a four day week of Thursday to Sunday would be OK... we'll see how it all works out.

First Glitch...

My preferred location of blog writing seems to be the end chair of the waiting room of Manitoulin Chrysler. That probably explains my lack of entries over the last few months since I traded in the Liberty, I just don't get over here much anymore. Not that the Jeep gave me any serious problems but it was always an oil change or tires or tie rod end or some other sundry thing.

I'm here today because I've just had my first problem with the Journey. When I got home from the market last night it refused to stay locked. No matter what I did after three or four seconds up the locks would pop again on all doors and of course the flashers would flash and the headlights would come on.

Pulling the door lock fuse didn't make any difference so I ended up disconnecting the battery for the night and now I'm at the shop while they try to figure out what the problem is.

My theory is that the key fob is putting out a constant "unlock door" signal but we'll wait on the official word and I'll keep you posted.
