Nixon's Memoirs: Meeting a fellow blogger

Meeting a fellow blogger

Today I had the distinct pleasure of meeting one of my readers in person. Lamkins, "Figuring it out...slowly" blog author, everyone's favorite barista, pardon, COFFEE MASTER.

Knowing full well that my wife reads my blog, I will still say boldly that she is BEAUTIFUL! (Lamkins, and my wife.)

She also whips up a tasty cup of hot chocolate!

I'm looking forward to regular visits to Starbucks now to enjoy the coffee and the conversation.

I worked my coffee stop into several other errands today, including an oil change, which ran kind of high with my "serpentine belt" service. I thought at first that they were just yankin' my chain on that one, but when he showed me the belt, it indeed looked some dried-out Big League Chew.

Lucky dog. Not everyday you get to have a Mocha created by an official blogger. : )

Lamkins also whips up a mean Grande Iced Soy Toffee Nut Latte! My fav! I'm glad you got to meet her. I've had 13+ years pleasure of her friendship. Looking forward to 13+ more years!

i've heard some shops spray the belt with wd40 and charge you for a new one.

Luckily, I was quite skeptical, and therefore shadowing the mechanic during the whole process, watching him retrieve a new belt, and replace it. But yes, I'm quite aware of dishonest car maintenance places. "Tuneup Masters" was notorious at one point, and I was one of their victims to the tune of $300 in college.

I also supervise my just so I can be sure he's doing what he's charging me for, but so I'll have a better idea how to fix it myself next time!
