AROUND THE HOUSE
My Jeep gets out of the “car” hospital Thursday. Unfortunately I have to park it under trees. During one of the recent storms a falling limb hit it and put a dent in the frame above the driver’s door. I am driving a rental 2017 Hyundai Elantra in the meantime. I’ll be glad to get my Jeep back. I use my Jeep like a truck and I have to keep this rental car sparkling inside and out unlike my trusty steed.
