We adopted another shelter dog Saturday. Ruby, a three year old Mountain cur mix. She will be a companion to our nine or ten year old girl Crystal who is an Australian Shepherd/Rottweiler mix.

I currently have a vehicle which requires the battery and inner fender to be removed to replace the dang headlight bulb! Ah, engineers and computers design vehicles, neither service or repair them, 😡

I hear you! Many newer vehicles require the removal of the entire front header panel to replace a headlight! Ridiculous. I had to put a right rear taillight on out ‘18 Equinox because somehow, a pice of gravel broke the lens and ended up inside the housing. How does that happen on a rear light? Anyhow, I used red photographic opaquing tape to “fix” it for nearly a year until I found a somewhat reasonably priced used light. New OEM was $340, Knockoff new was $190, As new used $147! for a one light plastic housing. At least it was a fifteen minute job to change out. .

A $1627.10 repair bill for this minor hit to the lower rear impact bar cover on my 2018 Equinox. No damage to the sub structure or body either. Two all plastic parts and a half pint of paint. Modern vehicles stink when it comes to any type of body damage. Thank goodness I kept my deductible at $500. Worst part- I’d have never gotten it fixed, except the Equinox is leased and goes back to Chevy at the end of July. We bought a used 2017 to replace it. Never leasing or buying new again.

I ordered my book from Mr. van Oosten a few days ago and it is on its way from the Netherlands. Total to Pennsylvania was $65 US dollars. I had purchased a Asahi Pentax S (the rare bird!) from him over a year ago. He is a nice person with which to deal, and we had a few conversations on FB Messenger. I am impatiently waiting for my trans-Atlantic parcel to arrive!!

I am glad to hear you were able to buy the 555. Mine survived ten years of daily photojournalist abuse in the 1990’s and performs like new to this day. I have seen the PT-2D modules with no cord sell for $50-75 on eBay.
