Where are we today ?In the last week we have added some antifreeze to our car twice and that is not good. I cannot find a leak so its a small one. But small leaks become bigger leaks so off to Pettigrew's Garage in Plattsville 8 am, and have Dale check it out. Just what I thought water pump. So he checked with his supplier they have one in stock and will soon be there. Told him will be back after lunch if that worked for him, no problem.
Back to New Hamburg I worked on the drywall repair for a bit ran a few errands and Suzie and I had a nice lunch, Dropped her off at her Dad's and back to Pettigrew's Garage for 1 pm. They busy but got me in no problem. Mike got to work on it right away and with his expertise and the proper tools was done in about 90 minutes, I was impressed. Just like he does one of these things everyday. I could have done it but did not have all the proper tools anymore, and these guys are very reasonable.
This is for our 2002 Saturn, with 187,000 drive kms (116,000 miles) on the engine and the first repair we have done other an ignition switch tires and brakes. Its a great car and still has lots of life in it.

Our plan was to go to Grandson number 4 hockey game in Ayr about 25 minutes away for 6 pm. Well we left here just before 6 and a hoped to catch at least some of the game. But what do we know? In the small village of AYR Ontario there is 2 arenas. We went to the one we new, found out where the new one was and got there just in time to miss the game. But we did get to visit with our 2 grands and other family members as well, so was not a total loss.
Back home relax a bit and lets call it a night, see what kind of fun we can have tomorrow.
