Well, yesterday I decided to forego enjoying a perfect spring Georgia day and replaced my water pump. The bearing failed to the point of rollers actually falling out but it never leaked a drop!! Anyway it only took me six hours and about ten beers. I only
lost about one square inch of skin on my hands and arms, and less than a half pint of blood!
I used to get a feeling of accomplishment when I did a job like this. Now I'm just happy I survived!
