A not so jiffy lube....

I haven't changed the oil myself in my car since before marriage.  We used to do it with Dad growing up at home, but that was before the onslaught of Jiffy Lube.  Well I decided to change the oil myself instead of paying someone else to do it.  I actually enjoyed it, and so did Drew.  It took awhile, and I made a huge mess, but it was fun.  The oil filters on our 2 foreign cars were impossible to get to, but I managed after I borrowed a different fuel filter wrench from our neighbor Marvin.  Next time Drew and I are committed to being as fast as Jimmy Johnson's pit crew.  I wasn't happy about the puddle of oil on the garage floor, and Becky wasn't happy about the oil on Drew's nice shorts.  Oh well, next time, we will do better.
