Lube Oil and Filter

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I took my SUV in for its 5K maintenance today. Surprisingly with all the football running around, it still only has 4300 KMS on it....not bad since I bought it in January. That will change once out of towns games start at the end of May....Ottawa is first on the list 5.5 hours driving each way.

In under half an hour, oil was changed, filters were replaced, fluids topped up, and an overall inspection done. emoticon And I had a coupon, so I got it all done for $20.00

As I'm sitting waiting, sipping my coffee, emoticon I thought to myself. "Wouldn't it be great if we could do that? Boy would it save some time if we could just change out the parts, top up our fluid levels and we're in tip top change till the next 5K rolls around. "

I'm kidding of course......oh to dream! We'd certainly get to the finish line quicker! emoticon

Have a great day Sparkers.....hope you get to your finish line! emoticon

    but we DO things like that... as if our body were a machine...
and sometimes we treat them as if we were in some kind of rally, like the monster trucks or something....

    Great thought. I would like a cell change (empty the fat cells) and a top up on water, please.

Have a great day!

    Well, at least we can heal with a few days in the "garage" instead of a few days with the mechanic!

  Yeah, that'd be good... I keep wishing I could just learn things like they do in The Matrix, just a quick download and it's all good!

    Great analogy Shortie!
A good reminder maybe that it's important we keep an eye on our fuel levels and keep the spark plugs,,,,errr Sparking emoticon

    Yes that would be great! Cute comparison. I guess it takes more to keep the human body more in order to stay a well oiled machine!
