De-Constructed Car

Mr Fixit is living up to his name. Here is the state of my car with its guts scattered all over the garage. Hopefully by the end the old dear will be set for another 20 years (the car, not the husband).
Here is one of the gadgets which will fit in to one of the sockets shown in my last post. This gadget will turn your old FM radio into an mp3 player. It tunes in to one of the un-used FM frequencies. It takes a stick or a usb. There's even a remote control. About $7 on e-bay.
Fortunately I have this cheeky monkey to keep me company. Progress is being made when I'm not playing grease monkey. I'm getting pretty good at fetching a bent 12 or a socket extension (not that long one - the other really long one). And of course the requisite cups of tea and ginger nut biscuits. I have a feeling I'll finish my quilt before he finishes my car.
I do believe the washing machine has stopped, so away I must. Hope you all have a great rest of the week!

We are both glad we have men that can fix our cars then. What would we do without that! Cheeky monkey looks super cute.
