1) got some Dry Gas or some such thing to add to the bad gas in the gold car and got it running again,
2) helped me get the washer working again, and helped do a few loads of laundry (!!! :)
3) (along with a little help from moi), got the wire hooked back up to the starter on the truck and got the truck running again.
Woo hoo, it was a good day. We still have a riding mower that won't work, but 3 for 4 isn't bad. It was kind of fun fixing things and getting them to work. Today we need to get the blinkers and brake lights running again so we can get the tags up to date.
