Redneck woman

using jumper cables to make sure our problem is the solenoid and not the starter motor

Anna figured out today that our starter is good and the solenoid is bad.

She brought in the jumper cables from the truck this morning, shorted the two main connections on the solenoid and was rewarded with a healthy sounding starter when she turned the ignition switch.

Why did Anna do this instead of me? I'm not quite sure...she sort of did it behind my back. I was still putting my boots on when I heard that wonderful cranking sound. Am I upset that she ran ahead to take all the glory? Heck no! A woman who can fix your dinner and your ATV is a fantasy that most men around here would trade their favorite deer rifle for.

I'm lucky enough to have a woman like that love me too! They're as rare as hens teeth and more valuable than gold. Love them like there's no tomorrow. :)

You better keep your deer rifle to drive off the suitors!
