The story is just too long .....

I'm just entering a short post to say that Petunia will be towed from Burns, Oregon to Portland today and I'll follow with Floribunda and the kids.  I really don't have to be in Portland today as the tow company won't deliver her to Mercedes Benz of Portland, an authorized Smart Car service, until tomorrow morning.  Then I'll probably have to be in that area until at least Monday, if not longer.

I'll post some of the gory details later; now I'm preparing to leave.

It's been a trying two or three days and it's only just begun....

Thanks for stopping by .....



  1. Oh I just hate car problems. But this too will pass and you will continue your wonderful travel through America!

  2. At least in Portland there are a lot of RV parks to choose from...none cheep, all have close neighbors, but there are choices. Good luck Mary-Pat, hang in there. Dave

  3. I posted your battery problem on One person who tows a Smart Car posted that a battery disconnect was installed on his car to keep the battery from going dead. Here is the link and notice the poster gotsmart. He even posted pics.

  4. Mary-Pat, sorry to hear about this blip in your life. We hope it comes to a rapid conclusion, without too much pain to the pocketbook. Wishing Petunia a speedy recovery! xo
