Monday 7-29 New Battery

Our Equinox

Yesterday, I mentioned that Larry had to jump start the car using a small jump pack. It's amazing how well it works. He has used it to start the motorcycle and now the car, worked great on both. It has so much power for being so little. It comes in a good looking case with everything you need to jump start a vehicle. It is easy to store and use. The actual jump pack fits in your hand.

Look how small it is

When we got home Larry let the car sit for a few hours and then checked the voltage on the battery, it was very low so he knew he needed to replace it. He removed the battery, it's was a little complicated because it's under some electronic parts. The battery was six years old, that's pretty good for a battery that is used every day. He shopped around online and found Walmart had the best price. This morning off to Walmart we went. We had no problem finding the battery. We had the old battery so we weren't charged for the core. The new battery has a five year warranty so we stapled the receipt to a piece of paper and put it in the glove box for safe keeping. Larry put the new battery in the car and I helped when needed. The car started right up. Now we're back in business. LIFE IS GOOD!!!

In the afternoon we read a bit. I also worked on my annual book and watered my flowers. While I was walking down the steps I noticed a big bug on one of the post covers. I don't remember seeing this type of bug before. I went and took a picture of it and realized it was missing a wing, I don't know if it will be alright or not. We have been watching the hummingbird feeder and we have had a couple of hummingbirds coming to get a drink. They are smaller than the first hummingbird. I'm so exacted that the feeder is being used.

What type of bug am I?
After dinner we went to Sun City for the Sundancers Monday dance. This week started their new schedule. The dancing starts at 6:00 for the class to review moves, at 7:00 to 9:00 the dance level will rotate back and forth from mainstream to plus at class level as long as the class members are there. From 9:00 on it will be either advanced or challenging plus, it depends on the dancers. For the class review we had four squares. The dance started out with five squares. We had enough people and an extra person for an A tip. Brad did an excellent job of calling. Everyone had a super time dancing.
