I'm guessing this guy thought the store would be empty for the holiday. One shouldn't assume. Link here. This shop is a couple miles away from me been there quite a few times. Glad only the intruder was hurt hope It didn't ruin the employees Christmas.

Google came through the tip I got about the Ignition Control module worked like a charm. Of course changing it wouldn't be that easy who ever gave the Honda her last tune up stripped all the screws for the distributor and I had to resort to needle nose vise grips to get em out 1/8 turn at a time. A wise man would have made it a point to change the screws but I don't know who he is and didn't have transportation to such a place to buy em so I switched some from a more accessible spot on the car and put the stripped ones where I could work with em. So long story short I'm on the road again.

I have had a really good month so despite not keeping my own advice and getting out there to hunt, fish and such. I have been knocking down some long worn projects left and right. And even still, old uncle Murphy keeps fucking with my vehicles. But no fear I have tools and I am just dumb enough to use em. Last night on my way home my 20 year old Honda just quit. It didn't surge, spark, flutter,or lope, no it just stop running like someone shut her down. Except it was on radio blaring, lights shinning and all. No check engine no warning she just stop then would not start at least not for about twenty minutes. I did the usual rundown of culprits on the side of the road the best I could but then just like that she started and we went home. Good I thought maybe she hiccuped some bad gas lord know I feed her the
good stuff. So this morning I jumped in fired her up and off we went, purred like a kitten for 6 miles then notta nope stopped again. So now I stand baffled I have had a lot of car and lets be real before I bought my jeep that up and died most of my cars were from the wonderful decade I was born or when Reagan was president hell I paid 1000.00 bucks for my first 5 cars combined , all together. So let say I have heard cars make a bunch of strange sound and have drove them for years with valves tapping and oil burning but I have never had a car run and sound perfect then just turn off no warning no sounds or smoke ummm wtf. So google here I come for a few hours of searching I found exactly 1 person on all the interwebs who had my problem and ask the question wtf. And apparently he did what I was about to do and start throwing parts at it but because of this guy hopefully I have the part I need a Ignition control module ( didn't even know they existed I'm so out of the loop). So here I pray that I have Murphy by the balls and this small not so cheap part fixes my problem and otherwise does not tarnish a hell of a week. Well lets be real probably wont work and it still won't matter Ill cuss it figure it out drink a beer and still have a Merry Fucking Christmas. Hell Yeah!

November up and walked away on me. The last month has been a whirlwind round here not much bloggin' there has been a lot of work and to little play but I have gotten a bunch of those pesky life projects out of the way and if I can keep Murphy in check I might just accomplish some hard earned goals that I have been working towards. Had to let some things go though my jeep Ole Blue had to go to much to fix needed the cash for something else gonna miss that jeep. One shouldn't get so attach to a vehicle but I have some memories in that one we have been through hell and back. not much else to speak of so I will end with pictures from November
