WHERE DID IT GO?

APRIL 07, 2021



Where Did It Go

Patty's attention got pulled in a different direction this morning and, as a result, I wound up running at the gym and picking up the groceries by myself. The caddy was looking pretty bad so I decided to add one more item to the list and take it by the carwash.

I had been to the gym and put in my three miles, ran the car through the carwash, and was just opening the trunk to the car, so the good folks at Walmart could load our groceries, when I noticed something strange. At some point in the morning, the red cover for the tail lights on the driver's side had gone missing.

Back tracking the morning's ride provided no help in locating the missing cover. In fact, even the car wash guys shut down the entire line long enough to look for it, but had nothing to show for all their efforts.

As such, I made a quick visit with my friends at Crawfordville Tire and Auto to check out my options. The quote was reasonable, so I placed my order for a replacement and proceeded home to unload the groceries.

As I feared, purchasing the cover requires the purchase of the entire driver's side tail light assembly. Even with the entire assembly and the installation, the quote was still quite reasonable. Plus, I didn't want the weather to get inside the assembly and cause more serious problems, which my car expert friend said would likely be the case after not much time.

I'm only a few miles away from my 161K miles oil change and will probably get that done while they're putting in the new assembly. Might as well make good use of the time and trouble for the maintenance stop.
