Tonya's Giveaway Ends Tomorrow~Gas Tank is Fixed~

A Fine Good Eveing One and all ..I'm home from a long weekend working making lots of beds again!! Wanted to stop in and remind everyone that my Guessing Game Giveaway ends tomorrow so I hope you have entered your guess.... I'll be picking the winner sometime tomorrow... if no one guesses the exact amount the winner will be the entry cloest to the total number~in case there is a tie then I will post a tie breaker question~Whoever answers correctly will be the winner...so check in to see who is the winner sometime tomorrow afternoon!!  Good Luck and Thank youf all for playing it has been so much fun reading all the post!!

Everyone will be happy to hear that I am driving safely again... I cleaned two extra houses yesterday to make sure I had the money to get the gas tank fixed or replaced in needed.
Thank God it didn't have to be replaced.
It is a plastic gas tank and on top is a cap of some nature not being a mechanic I can't come close to explaining this thing. But it is 4" round and has some kind of cylinder that goes down in the tank. Well the seal keeps breaking loose and then the gas just pours out of this 4" hole. Really stupid design if you ask me..especially since I have had to have it resealed twice in one year. This time I suggested they put screws in it to hold it in place... Ready ladies for the thumbs up cheer... the mechanic says, " you know that's a great idea why didn't we do that last time?" So they put three screws in it, sealed it and patted themselves on the back... and gave me the thumbs up for the idea... Now I guess we'll see if it makes a difference..
While they had it up on the rack I ask them to change my oil for me and they did that too.
 Best part was they only charged me $80 bucks for parts, oil and labor... Parts were like $20 so I gave them $100.. figured I cleaned that extra house may as well make there day...
Now I feel safe driving again and I won't be pumping $4.00 a gallon gas on the ground either...

Tonight we built a big pin for the Baby Chicks.. I was gona show everyone a picture but seems Blogger is not going to allow me to download the picture.. Anyway tomorrow the Chicks will be going to the barn to start learning all about the real world..hehe... We created the pin out of my portable dog pin..We just covered it with Chicken wire... I had planned on turning it into a cat run so Tasha and Mamma could be outside safely... but for now the chicks need it until they are big enough to fin for themselves..Once they out grow it Tasha and Mama Kitty Will be delighted to go outside and catch some Sunshine and feel the grass on there paws...

Bless my soul it almost midnight already... and it is time for me to wish you all a Good Night... So until we meet again may your day be filled with sunshine and happy moments!!

  2. Tonya,
    Glad you got your vehicle fixed. Sometimes a woman is right when it comes to fixing cars. Men just don't want to hear that. They want to be in charge when it comes to working on cars. I have told my husband many times what was wrong with my car and he said, no that's not it. Sure enough when he got around to looking at it, I was right.
    Love it! But I never say, I told you so or he wouldn't work on it again. I just laugh to myself and think SEE! I was right.
    Can't wait to see how many beds you made for the giveaway. I hate making beds. Don't know why, it doesn't take that long, but it is tedious. I'll check in to see the results of the win.
    Take care.
    Country at heart

  3. Great news Tonya, mechanical stuff can be a real drag, glad to hear you got it fixed. Also looking forward to to answer of just "how many beds" do you make.... more than I care to make for sure. Have a great day, blessings to ya

  4. Hi Tonya, So happy to hear that you finally managed to get your gas tank fixed and that it wasn't as bad as you thought with having to replce your whole tank(you deserve a break). Can't wait to actually see how many beds you really make a day. Thank you for hosting such a fun giveaway! Hugssss Mary

  5. Hey Tonya - great to hear from you again. Get a little worried some times when a blog friend doesn't post. Glad all is well with your gas tank.
