Last winter, my 20-year-old car finally gave up the ghost. Blown head gasket, coolant leaks and electrical woes are simply too much to repair.

A local friend has given me an old Nissan that IS worth repairing. Unfortunately, my funds are frightfully limited as is my current income. I work VERY HARD, but it's barely enough to pay for normal living expenses for one old-ish lady and her dodgy cat.

SO... I believe the best way to get what we need is to flat-out (and kindly) ASK FOR IT. So that's what I am doing now.

My last campaign here netted enough to pay the mechanic for the tow and diagnosis of two cars with around $260 left over. Mechanic now has the Nissan at his shop and is waiting for my okay to start work. After being in storage for several years, the car requires a new timing belt and water pump. Bill for that will be almost $800. There is an elecrical misconnection at the firewall that requires repair, as well.

Can we do this, kids? Can we get me safely and surely back to mobility? It's frustrating and dangerous to live where I live with no way out.

Wishing wildly,

--Kaanii Powell Cleaver
