Clarence the Car and the Honeybees
So this past week has been a bit crazy. Our beautiful Ford Taurus (Clarence) decided that he didn't want to start anymore! It actually started acting up once the weather got a little warmer instead of the -11 degrees the day before. But to make a long story short the car sat at the Virginia Ball Center parking lot for most of the week where I am working on an exhibit about Honeybees, and we had to walk to campus from our house. It was kind of a long walk but only when we got stuck waiting for the train to pass. At least it was a bit warmer than it was though the few days before so it could've been worse. Well on Friday I drove up in a tow truck the 96 miles to Warsaw. We have 100 miles of free towing with AAA and as you can tell we cut it super close. But the car had to get a new fuel pump so for the week I am driving Mom and Dad's big bad blue minivan! It actually is nice that I have it though because for the project we have to take a bunch of 3d models into Burris School for our focus group of 3rd graders. Well that is life for us right now.
