Sometimes I wonder what kind of monster I unleashed when I gave my hubby the green light to build his workshop in the back yard. Little did I know that it was going to end up as a two car repair shop with a power lift, and painting booth and a gantry crane! He had always told me that he loves to work on cars and turn old classic cars into hot rods, but I never expected this much stuff!
Today I spent about an hour reading up on Title Loans Miami so I can help a friend’s son who is in trouble. Actually, she is my sister’s best friend, but they have been friends for so long that she seems like a sister to me and the rest of my real siblings. And if her son is in trouble, it is like one of my nephews is in trouble.
My sister’s best friend is a new widow and lives too far away for us to help her with much. When we have the chance to visit her it is a planned trip that takes a full day of driving to get there and a full day to get back home, so we can’t even just drop by or even spend just a weekend with her. That’s a shame, because she is left alone dealing with a bunch of kids and could use a little help once in a while. All but one of her kids are grown and moved out of the he house, but they still come running back to mamma every time they have a problem. I guess that is to be expected, but I have not had to deal with anywhere near the drama that she seems to have in her life.
So her son has been working and living in south Florida for about two years and he got into some trouble with his job. I don’t even want to know the details, but evidently he needs to raise some cash really fast. So I suggested a title loan. The problem is that the truck he has been driving is in his mother’s name, so we have been trying to figure out how to help him get a title loan when she is not down there to sign the papers.
I was able to find a lot of Miami Information on the internet and think we may have figured out a way to hire an attorney, get the title loan processed and keep her son out of jail. It still takes a few phone calls and some paperwork, but at least a title loan will give him the emergency cash he needs and also buy him some time to get the problems sorted out.
Hopefully she is taking our advice and not just sending cash to him. I think that if he has a title loan that he will make a bigger effort to pay it back and stay out of trouble. And she is prepared to pay off the loan herself in case he defaults. But I sure hope that does not happen, and if it does, then she needs to go there and get the truck and take it away from him. Its one thing to help your kids and its something else to be taken advantage of or stolen from.
When my mother first got her Mercedes Benz, she was so proud of the beautiful leather seats. They were very soft, and a pretty maroon color. Within what I would think was a short period of time, however, the seats started to crack. I asked her why that was happening, and she told me that she had no idea, and was quite upset over it. I told her I would ask my friend Jon if he knows how to repair leather car seats. He’s a custom car fan, so I think he just might know the answer to that.
Have you ever heard of vci paper before? I just learned about it today from my brother. He had ordered something from Ebay for his hot rod and was really excited when it arrived in the mail today. He was unpacking it and was telling me that he was really glad to see that it had been wrapped in vci paper. I asked him what is vci paper, and he explained that it was a specially coated paper that is used to wrap metal objects in to protect them from rust. Well, you learn something new every day, don’t you!
There is never a good time to need roadside assistance services, but if you are going to have a flat tire, finding out about it in a store’s parking lot is a lot better than out in a rural area where you know you will have to wait several hours for a tow truck to come and help out. Now I know you are thinking “why doesn’t she just change the tire herself?” The answer to that, my friend, is this – the lug nuts are always screwed onto the wheel too tight and I can’t loosen them – even with a crow bar! At least, having a flat tire in a store’s parking lot you can usually go into the store and browse for a while until the tow truck arrives, instead of waiting in the dark by the side of a dark country road, feeling vulnerable to any nut case that comes along!
