Glinda Meets Mr. Grinder
Yesterday, the stars aligned and there were no excuses so I ventured out through the snowy expanses to find the side door of my garage. I fired up the kerosene heaters and forty-five minutes later Victoria and I went to work on her car. We removed the window molding from the windshield and backlight and dug out the hefty bead of silicone caulk from the groove between the glass and the side of the channel. She also took my grinder with wire wheel and attacked all the rust spots and bubbles on the car. That allowed us to assess the extent to which I’ll be utilizing my MIG welder. Finally, she coated all exposed metal with rusty metal primer to protect it.
