The day started early with my truck not starting so had to jump start it. Went to the post office to mail a couple of letters----they were closed---didn't open until noon..this was at 9 AM---so came home, shut the truck off fully expecting it to start later. It DIDN"T!!!
Called a daughter....they came down and jump started it again for me. Went into town (10 miles away), filled the truck with fuel (it's diesel) while it was running, paid my insurance payment, stopped at Auto Zone and had them check the batteries (it has 2). One battery was completely shot. Since it was a Walmart battery and still under warranty, I took the truck there. They checked the battery and agreed it was completely shot. Well, I had told them to let me know about the battery before they put a new one in...they didn't---they went ahead and installed a new battery and then tried to charge me $118. When I objected and said it was under warranty, they then decided that I didn't owe anything. So I got a new battery free--no way was I going to pay that much for a Walmart battery when I could go down the street and get a much better one for less than 10 dollars more. So now I'm stuck with a Walmart battery for 3 more years......UGH!!!
On the good side----after getting the new battery, I was able to go to the hospital for my first try on the exercise equipment----did 15 minutes on the Nu Step and 6 minutes on the recumbent bike. I was told that was good for the first time.
Then worked 4 hours rearranging books and Bible study material in the library and checking in Sunday School material.....guess I got my exercise today....I will stop back at the hospital after TOPS tomorrow for another exercise session. That Nu Step is fantastic. It is a recumbent stepper......no pressure on the knees but works both the arms and legs...would love to have one at home but don't have room for one right now.
Anyway that was my day..........
