Poor car. She probably deserves the rest. You'll be happy as hell when you get it on the road again.

I visited it today, to get my ice scraper!!
I figure she is good to go as long as all the tires hold air, and the battery remains un hooked!

And Bill, i agree, we needed some time appart, so when i get back in it, it will be like purchasing it all over again!

Matt, be careful she don't get too lonely, or feeling too neglected in there. See the attached post for details

The Plot Against The People

Inanimate objects are classified scientifically into three major categories: those that break down, those that get lost, and those that don't work.
The goal of all inanimate objects is to resist man and ultimately to defeat him, and the three major classifications are based on the method each object uses to achieve its purpose. As a general rule, any object capable of breaking down at the moment when it is most needed will do so. The automobile is typical of the category.
With the cunning peculiar to its breed, the automobile never breaks down while entering a filling station which has a large staff or idle mechanics. It waits until it reaches a downtown intersection in the middle of the rush hour, or until it is fully loaded with family and luggage on the OhioTurnpike. Thus it creates maximum inconvenience, frustration and irritability, thereby reducing its owner'* life-span.
Washing machines, garbage disposals, lawn mowers, furnances, TV sets, tape recorders, slide projectors- all are in league with the automobile to take their turn at breaking down whenever life threatens to flow smoothly for their enemies.
Many inanimate objects, of course, find it extremely difficult to break down. Pliers, for example, and gloves and keys are almost totally incapable of breaking down. Therefore, they have had to evolve a different technique for resisting man.
They get lost. Science has still not solved the mystery of how they do it, and no man has ever caught one of them in the act. The most plausible theory is that they are able to conceal from human eyes.
It is not uncommon for a pair of pliers to climb all the way from the cellar to the attic in its single-minded determination to raise its owner'* blood pressure. Keys have been known to burrow three feet under mattresses. Women'* purses, despite their great weight, frequently travel through six or seven rooms to find hiding space under a couch.
Scientists have been struck by the fact that things that break down virtually never get lost, while things that get lost hardly ever break down. A furnace, for example, will invariably break down at the depth of the first winter cold wave, but it will never get lost. A woman'* purse hardly ever breaks down; it almost invariably chooses to get lost.
Some persons believe this constitutes evidence that inanimate objects are not entirely hostile to man. After all, they point out, a furnace could infuriate a man even more thoroughly by getting lost than by breaking down, just as a glove could upset him far more by breaking down than by getting lost.
Not everyone agrees, however, that this indicates a conciliatory attitude. Many say it merely proves that furnaces, gloves and pliers are incredibly stupid.
The third class of objects- those that don't work- is the most curious of all. These include such objects as barometers, car clocks, cigarette lighters, flashlights and toy-train locomotives. It is inaccurate, of course, to say that they never work. They work once, usually for the first few hours after being brought home, and then quit. Thereafter, they never work again.
In fact, it is widely assumed that they are built for the purpose of not working. Some people have reached advanced ages without ever seeing some of these objects - barometers, for example- in working order.
Science is utterly baffled by the entire category. There are many theories about it. The most interesting holds that the things that don't work have attained the highest state possible for an inanimate object, the state to which things that break down and things that get lost can only aspire.
They have truly defeated man by conditioning him to never expect anything of them. When his cigarette lighter won't light or his flashlight fails to illuminate, it does not raise his blood pressure. Objects that don't work have given man the only peace he receives from inanimate society.
