    I am fairly confident with minor stuff. Looks like a fuel filter requires a couple of very unique tools. Might be a shop job.

    Depends on the car. Last one I did, I had to get a tool to disconnect the filter from the fuel line, which was pretty cheap. The big challenge for most cars these days is how accessible the thing is. There will be a little bit of spillage so you'll need a plastic container of some sort or some rags. Check Youtube / google; it should be a much easier job than trying to paint a car.

    P.S. " anyone able to gauge if that's something ..." (I see what you did there! lol)

    No too much since he had enough sense to marry you.

    I beg to differ. He might have been right, if it was a VW van. Millennials are gobbling them up and living out of them now; they're the latest rage. Even failing snobby East Coast media elites are noticing. http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/20...media-movement

    P.S. What did you spray paint? Any interesting colors or designs? A big giant "9F" on the hood? Inquiring minds want to know!!

    Although he had a van, oh yes, with curtains on the back windows, the red spray-paint was applied to his VW Bug. No idea which neighbor of his decided that car was good for "Mr. Fixit" to take care of. Likely the neighbor's wife decided that the nice young man down the street looked goofy enough to inherit the old Bug.

    And as to old fads coming back strong at the whim of the Millennial Patrol...

    Ladies, attention! Are you noticing the resurgence of high-heeled clogs?! I asked my daughter if she had kicked herself in the ankle with those beasts yet. GOOD LORD!!!!

    Niece Elizabeth is driving from PA to Atlanta. She called me as they were leaving Durham. She had never seen the Duke campus so she and Max stopped for a quick look around. They did not go the few miles down the road to look at the unc campus.

    That sounds reasonable and completely appropriate to me. 😎

    To Pop Tart or not Pop Tart, that is the question.

    I think it depends on the flavor.

    I thought the question was whether or not to paint the Skylark? If so, what color?

    Frequently, places like Autozone and Advance Auto have specialty tools that they lend out. You have to put down a deposit, but are credited when the tool is returned. Not sure if the tools for fuel filter replacement are available, but it wouldn't hurt to ask. (They will also offer advice on location of the fuel filter, and how to change. They are probably more helpful if you actually purchase the fuel filter from them.)

    I ended up having brisket tacos, my Friday morning staple. I did purchase some strawberry frosted Pop Tarts for consumption over the holiday weekend.

    Yes, that one is still on the table. Original factory color was if Fire Red and I will likely stick with it.

    Cake is fine at anytime.

    Being at the office at 6am, now that is the problem
