Ray's {where everybody knows your naaaaaammmeeee}

"making your way in the world today,
takes everything you've got.
taking a break from all your worries,
sure could help a lot."

"wouldn't you like to get away?"

{with feeling now...}

"sometimes you wanna go,
where everybody knows your naaaaaaameeee,
{dun, dun, dun}
and they're always glad you caaaaaaammmeeee,
{dun, dun, dun}
you wanna be where you can see,
troubles are all the same.
you wanna be where everybody knows your name."

 "you wanna go where you know,
people are all the same,
 you wanna go where
everybody knows,
your name."
this morning i took the kids to Ray's for an oil change.
John owns it now.
but Ray was there today too.
he still visits once a week.
now that he's a retired man.
Ray started the shop in 1975,
and sold it to John 9 years ago.
it's clean,
and friendly.
but most of all,
{my favorite kind of shop}.

while Jiffy Lube lures you in with low face value fees for an oil change,
you end up paying an arm and a leg by the time your bill is done with the things 
they didn't include in the sticker price they had on their sign out front.
Ray's does the work for an honest price,
no gimmics or up sells to sneak up your price.
so MINDY-van got the royal treatment today,
all hoisted up on the shiny red and yellow lifter.
lubed up, and freshened with new windshield wipers for the winter.
MINDY-van sang to me all the way home.
so happy to have all of her parts properly working again.
oil change=better gas mileage.
a car or truck that is well maintained works the way it's designed to,
and therefore uses less fuel.
who knew?!
children using technological devices in waiting rooms,
make less noise.
i knew:) 
so did you.

where everybody knows
{and your kid's names too.}

Call John
and get your car set up for all of your car or truck needs.
new wipers for the winter?
check the tred on your tires?
make sure the air pressure is right for the new winter temps?
and say hi to Ray if he's there.
so he'll know your name too.
see ya there!

I remember taking three kids to do stuff. How many snacks did they go through?

There's nothing better than a good, honest mechanic.

Wish I lived close enough to take advantage of your guy!

Jeffrey and I have been watching a lot of Cheer's on Netflix. That song will be stuck in my head all day now. But as songs go, its not so bad.
I love your kids. They have so much personality and expression. They just make me laugh so much! And finding a good honest place to get your car work done is a blessing in and of itself!
