This is an offshoot of the original Liam & Janet blog. That blog has become overrun by Liam's inability to keep his mouth shut when something annoys him. The serious rants there seemed incongruous with the humor columns. The plan for the humor columns continues to be to post a new one every Friday, plus occasional extras when the mood strikes.

Follow Up

I just wanted to throw out this follow up to last week's essay. This isn't really funny, I just wanted to give a quick plug to the people that helped us.

The Mechanic we worked with is a gentleman named "Danny" at "Dee's Service Center" in Bloomfield, NJ, in a gas station just a spit in a good wind off of the exit of the Garden State Parkway.

We were absolutely stuck, and I think I've made it clear that they could have told me the "frambulator" was "discombobulated" and that it was going to cost $2500 to fix and I would have bought it, and yet Danny and Dee's charged us a reasonable and fair price, did good work, and generally were kind and helpful.

The thing that made me decide to post this was when we got back, there was a flat tire in addition to everything else. Danny took a break from his work and found the hole and plugged it and didn't add anything to our charge.

When you're driving in a place like NJ (trust me, I grew up there) and you have an auto emergency and go to the kind of little garage we ended up at, you sort of expect to be taken advantage of. It's so very pleasant that we weren't.

So if you ever happen to have a car problem near the "Brookdale South" rest area on the Garden State Parkway, go to Dee's. They're good people.
