After a Month and a half of Being Out Sick…

Sugar Plum is nearly back!
On Fri. March 4th, I came out of teaching my class to see Sugar Plum peeing every possible fluid onto the Biola parking lot tarmac. Yikes!
I had a big debate with myself that afternoon, as I took her to the local mechanic and the cost to replace the oil pan and water pump was the same as the funds I had saved up for food and expenses at SXSW. Yikes!
I called my brother to ask if I could borrow his Mustang until I had returned from SXSW and could get Sugar Plum repaired. Best yet, my brother said that if I brought SP to his house he would repair her.
Over a month has gone by, gas prices have made driving the lovely V-8 Mustang a bit of a pain, but Sugar Plum is almost fixed! This week, Joe took the oil pan out for repair, as we tried to find a new one to no avail. He steam cleaned the engine today to look for more leaks, none. And next week he will replace the water pump.
Super Joe to the rescue!
