Superb & Sorta Sorry Saturday!

Last Update: September 25, 2021

Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

The first order of business for me was assisting Monica as she sorely climbed out of bed! Her first day was hectic, and as she had suspected the other people there in her department had left the place in a sorry state!

Moreover, she was tired when she got home and tired when she got up, so I hope she can adjust to the added hours all jam packed into four days including the weekend in between>

When she was off to work, then I sat down and worked a little in the Wealthy Affiliate Community (I had also done a little bit in the wee hours of the morning as well!)

Tig-Tig wasn't around, likely in Samantha's room, oh wait, I found her!

She was worried about her belly as usual!

Of course, Blog Dogs were up to their usual antics!

Anyway, when the morning sojourns were done, I had to drive across town and rescue some equipment from my car. It broke down at a tavern last night where I had to go unlock a car for a female Realtor of mine!

She tipped me handsomely, even bought me a couple of beers, and when she heard my car was broke down, she even took me as far as the eBay house where I had another vehicle with which I could go home in! So it wasn't all bad!


The drive over there to get some things out of my car was quite beautiful! I called Frank & I's associate, Tommy Williams, and he will come trailer it over to the shop to replace the serpentine belt, and to see if there were any other issues ailing the car.

I'm still waiting on him, but it could be anytime today! I have permission to leave it there for a couple of days if he doesn't make it today!


While I have been waiting, I have been putting the time to good use. I did a little more Wealthy Affiliate research, and some more lawn work and clean-up tasks to stay busy! Of course there were also more of my requisite weekend phone calls too!

Tommy Williams showed up around 3:00pm. We ended up being able to drive the car to his shop.


The new serpentine belt was installed, as were the spark plugs! A lot of work, and still the car doesn't run quite right, it still is misfiring a lot, but at least it is at the eBay house safe and sound!

Ah well, so I have some serious transportation problems right before winter, but things could be a lot worse! There are many people far worse off than I am!

I am writing this post late because I got the car back late. When I release it, then I will head home and talk to Monica, although she is likely asleep and exhausted from her second day of work!

I HOPE THAT EVERYONE HAD A WONDERFUL SATURDAY!

I sincerely hope that they are not working Monica too hard on her return to the office Jeff?

Her surgery was not that long ago really, so it would be more beneficial for all involved to ease her back into the job gradually.

More transport problems for you?? This seems to be a never ending problem my friend!

But what a place to break down! There is no alternative than to sample an ale or two in this case!

Was it a "strategic" breakdown I wonder?🤣🍻

Especially as the car seemed to make it back to the E bay house a little later unaided!!

I hope that the end of your Frisatsu is more relaxing and less vehicle troublesome!

Haha, Nick! I know it seems like it was strategic, but I really didn't want to deal with how bad it was shuddering that late in the evening!

Transport problems are plaguing me coming into fall, and with about $3K in property taxes due in mid December, there is very little in the auto budget to put out the fires!

Things will happen for the better in some way.

I hope you are having an excellent Sunday, my friend!

It is difficult to drive when there are 2 roads to choose from. Lol.

Best not to risk these things Jeff, especially if there is a Tavern near by!

But how many properties do you own in total? Must be at least 4 I can think of.

I think we pay about $3k yearly for one property here!

Things will certainly get better my friend, I believe this!

We got home safely yesterday which is always a blessing and enjoyed a reasonably relaxing day!

Haha Steveoi! That's one reason I haven't owned a car since 2013!

I'm glad you made it home safely and had a relaxing weekend!

$3k a year for 4 properties doesn't sound too much to me then Jeff!

One of the few benefits of living in a city (in Europe anyway) depending upon ones work of course, is a car is not needed.

Public transport works well, we have shops, restaurants, taverns and supermarkets round every corner. If I need a car to travel, then I rent one!

No problems with insurance, parking fees, having a garage or maintenance for me!

That's for half the year, Nick! I pay the second half in May! The properties are run-down, not new stuff, so I think it a bit pricey, especially in a couple of the neighborhoods they are located in!

Ah well! You are lucky you don't need a vehicle! You are like Les Green (Chuck) in the Netherlands--he doesn't need one either

That makes a bit more sense to me now my friend! So you are looking at around $1.5k a year per property.

Is it not worth thinking about selling one at least, and consolidating what you have slightly?

For me here it is just like Chuck's situation, but I haven't heard from him for a while, I hope he is ok.

I would say no--a couple are not insurable for financing purposes, so would take a bigger bath financial, especially considering a lot of things are stored in most of them! Things that if I had more time could be sold!

Chuck is okay, but disgruntled, and so he is working on other endeavors right now!

You will have to excuse my naivety here my friend, but what does "insurable for financing purposes" mean?

Or is it just another "new" term from the bank which means "we can't help you".

My warehouse property is 120 years old! Insurance companies won't touch it for less than $15-20K / mo. in other words, they won't insure it! If it is uninsurable, no financial institution will touch it with a loan--too much risk, Nick!

Mmm? So in that case isn't it best to just sell for what you can get for it Jeff?

Or, holding on to it, could prove to be more profitable down the line?

I need to sleep my friend, it's getting very late here now!

Catch up tomorrow ok, I'm intrigued by this situation you are in!🐫🐫

I have thousands of dollars worth of saleable items in there, with no way and no where to move them too, so, as one person, a pretty insurmountable task, indeed!

Nick in Vietnam, the public transport is terrible. So everyone has a motorcycle. Drunk driving is rampant. I saw a guy on a motorcycle and he fell off , lost one shoe, turned around and went back the way he was coming. Lol. I hear he still hasn’t got home 5 years later. Haha.

And we know what those items are Jeffoi. I’m just going to the warehouse to ahem work Monica. Lol.

No task is ever insurmountable in my opinion Jeffrey!

Thinking outside of the box with a little help from our friends, there is nothing we can't overcome!

We had a similar issue with public transport in Brazil Steveoi!

Imagine a bus with a capacity of 30, you could easily see 100 people on it, hanging out the windows and front door trying to get to their destinations!

This was a safer way to travel than taking a motorbike though!

I certainly hope so, Nick! All of you here in WA help me to overcome some seemingly insurmountable obstacles!

The most people I saw on a motorcycle was 6, I think it was the whole family. True story. It is common to see 3 or even 4 . But I hear India takes it to a whole different level.

Wishing Monica well on her journey through the maze. Perhaps it will only take her a short while to get use to her new schedule and the headaches that come with it. Nice that a client helped you to guzzle down some suds. Not to many nice people anymore.

Thank you, Canty! Slowly, but surely, Monica will adapt!

Yes, it was fun drinking with a client--just wish one of my primary sources of transportation would have held together!

Enjoy your day!
