Pecked to Death by Ducks!

Think about that.... Could someone really be pecked to death by ducks? I don't think so, but while they're pecking would become very annoying after some time you wouldn't die from it. Why am I asking this profound but silly question, you ask?

Remember the car that I procrastinated about putting up for sale.... Then actually put it up for sale and never sold? Yep, that one.... Well, with the gas prices up, we took the signs out of the windows. Since it really does make sense to drive the car that has the best gas mileage. Any who... the car started do weird things and making funny noises.

Grim got out there and checked it out. He thought that the anti-freeze reservoir had a crack in it. Seeing as how there was anti-freeze all over the engine and the reservoir. So we took it to the dealer (still under warranty as its only a 1 1/2 years old). They replaced the reservoir and sent me on my way 2 days later.

I picked up the car, got gas ( a full tank ), went home... A couple hours later I drove 8 blocks to get pizza and came home parked the car for the night. At this point your wondering where I'm going with this aren't you... especially since the car is suppose to be fixed... Right!

We get up in the morning to take a family trip to Tractor Supply.... I turn the car on and it is sputtering, the check engine light is blinking and we can smell anti-freeze. So Grim hops in the big car and follows me to the dealer.... Where I again drop the car off for repairs.

Grim gets a call the next afternoon to tell us that the head gasket is blown and that's why we have anti-freeze everywhere. I guess while Chevrolet while re-figuring how they were going to make a better car with the buyout money from the government they must have missed a couple steps.

The car is under warranty and it will be fixed. So essentially, it is just a big pain in the butt... Hence being pecked to death by ducks! LOL!
