Interesting Week

Well we have had a very interesting week. As you know (if you read our previous post) we were involved in a small fender bender on Monday. Besides being an inconvenience it really wasn't a big deal. The other driver's insurance is paying for the repairs to our car since he was at fault. We were not too worried about not having our car, because Curt and Melinda Brown are on furlough and we have access to their vehicle, at least I thought we did. When I went to borrow it, smoke came pouring out from under the hood as we tried to crank it. I have been starting it up and letting it run at least once a week since the Browns have been gone and have never had a problem with it until then. Needless to say I had to call the auto club and have their van towed in to the repair shop. So since Tuesday we have been without a car with two in the shop. I'm just thankful that the public transportation system here in Austria is as good as it as. Without it we would have been practically stranded. Thankfully I was able to pick up the Browns' car a little earlier today so we will have a car over the weekend. We should have our car back next Monday or Tuesday. Hopefully your week has gone a little smoother than ours. Have a great weekend!
