On Reading and Riding
And did you catch that self-portrait in the book cover?
Another procrastination item off the "to do" list. I had been asking to have my car detailed for about three years (every birthday, Mother's Day, Christmas, etc.) I put it on my list. Even though I was promised it for one of those events, it never happened.
But along came teenage drivers. And just in case you didn't know, teenage drivers are hazardous to the health and well being of your vehicle. One young lady scraped the drivers side front bumper into the garage door jamb and covered it with white latex paint transfer. A few months later, another young lady ran the passenger side into the garage door jamb, leaving paint transfer from the passenger door to the end of the sliding door. My car looked like crap!
But look at it now! The interior looks brand new. The detailers did such a wonderful job cleaning the leather and carpets. And the exterior, well all the areas where paint has chipped off or cracked is still there. The dent in the passenger side sliding door from the latest mishap is still there. But 98% of the paint transfer was successfully buffed out! Yes, it was worth every last penny.
