Thank goodness for roadside towing. I hope they get you up and running soon.

I've seen one somewhere in my travels nicknamed (painted on side) "crash collector"

They're usually pulling disabled 18-wheelers

That's correct boo, while I was researching my predicament I realized we have a bunch of these kind of tow trucks down here.

OK, for the heck of it....

redecorated Buffy's bedroom! The lighter quilt makes the room appear much larger.

Cheaper than a new rig. Looks great.

Thanks, OC.

We tried to buy that same quilt when we were here last year (pattern is "Victorian Treasure") but nobody had one in stock in the size we wanted.

Got lucky this year! Our bed is queen sized, but we wanted king size so it fits more like a bedspread instead of a comforter.

There's another pattern we want for the S&B called "Cades Cove" but no one here has it, and so we found a source on line.

BTW, I *so* enjoyed Frankie showing me all her family heirloom quilts....amazing stitching talent! AND, she's got me HOOKED after she showed me her mom's button collection. Who knew Goodyear made rubber buttons in the 1800's before automobiles were even dreamed about?

Ask her if she knows Colt Firearms made buttons too? Look at this....reportedly very expensive and very rare:

And I felt SO privileged to get a *private*, one on one presentation of her buttons, sitting out there in your 5er while you and Sneak blinged out Buffy.

And, I *do* have pics to prove you put your magic touch to Buffy:

This is OC drilling our bumper for the end piece keepers. He used some "retaining pins" which are very unique and easy to use.

(chuckle) just realized I snapped this just as you were getting under the bumper...looks like you're levitating.

Love the SRX! Easy to tow. No fuse to pull. Ignition off. Just push the transmission button and place into neutral.

And it drives and rides great!

I'm about the buy the DW an SRX, I've read about the button to push to be able to tow, but how do you re-engage to be able to drive the SRX again?

The button is just to unlock the shifter so u can put it in neutral. It's pretty easy. The shifter cover just snaps out easy and you press the button and move the shifter to neutral then snap the cover back in and that's it. Once you arrive just put the car in park and start it up. I learned the hard way that you must turn the car off while in park. I thought I could start the car, put it in neutral then turn it off. This leaves the car in accessory mode and it WILL kill the battery! So I run the car for about 5 min now then turn it off and then put it in neutral and it's ready to tow.
