The Two Rings

Here is the ring that broke on Del's car that caused it to have to be towed home. We had to buy a new cable for it because they don't sell just the ring. Dad and Del fixed his car in about 3 hours. It broke on Sunday and they fixed it on Monday.
 This is the same ring that broke in my van on Thursday...with me and all six of my kids in it...at the Pediatrician's office. Lovely. You can see the tiny ring fits inside my wedding ring; it's a size 5. Such a little thing and it brought down both our vehicles in four days. Del and Dad make a good team; they fixed my van at the pediatrician's office in about 40 minutes.
Here's my ring on my hand for some perspective.

Oh, my! It is amazing that such a small part has so much control over the whole vehicle! That reminds me of a small part of me (tongue) that controls my entire vehicle (body), too. Ugh, gee, thanks for the reminder... :)

LOL, you're funny. But it's so true. It often gets us into one form of trouble or another.

That was a neat perspective! And by the way, I really like the background on your blog. It's relaxing and pleasant.

Oh good, I'm glad for the feedback. I thought it was rather nice, too.

That's crazy that the same thing happened to both vehicles within a few days! It's nice that you have a husband and dad who can fix it though! That mess would have cost us a fortune!
