Saturday encore ~ Mechanics on duty

Alan and George were kind enough to perform a vehicle inspection for me on the Ranger. 

Alan: Every inspection must include a thorough tire-kicking.

Alan: Suspension system seems to be in working order. Surprising given the way she drives this thing.

Alan: Tailgate appears to be stuck.

George: How in the heck do you pop this hood? 

George: Maybe there's a secret switch hidden up here.

George: Hey, Alan, come over here and see if you can figure this out.

Alan: Beats the hell out of me. Maybe we should ask the shop steward?

Lucy: I could open it but I don't want to ruin my manicure.

Alan: Your vehicle is safe to drive, ma'am. That will be $100. We accept cash, credit cards, or carrots.


  1. they deserve many carrots for just being so adorable and add the mechanical inspection, give them a whole bag of carrots.

  2. nosey fun critters. yep, I'd say the cost of adorable in this case is payable in carrots. These are priceless shots.

  3. Once again ... great photos, love the captions, wish my truck repair could have been done for a bag of carrots, LOL.

  4. I wondered who did the maintenance work on your vehicles. Now I know. They appear to do a very thorough job and happy to do it.

    Or watermelon. How funny!! I am surprise the gang doesn't try to take a chunk out of the ranger.

  6. You always have the most creative posts!! Thanks so much for the smiles! Love, love, love George, Alan. My twins Daphne and Chloe would like a date!! But then Lucy might get jealous??
