I know that you are all worrying yourself to death over the fate of the Minty Squirrel. Let me assure you, everything is okay. It is now happily in residence at my house again, running, and basically happier than ever.
A special thanks to KOM who gave me absolutely brilliant mechanical advice when it comes to the squirrliness that is a Festiva. I, however, did not need to use any of his brilliant ideas.
I am not telling you what was actually wrong with the car.
I decided the time for pampering this wonderful chunk of a car was well past due. I washed it AND had a car phone installed....
Happy Valentines Day ya bunch o' schmucks! I love you!
If you love it so much, why don't you marry it?
