    Angry Done and Done

    Hello all - This will probably be be my last post for awhile. I was at the Tuscon VA and got into a commotion over a parking space. I was waiting when a truck pulled in behind me, I was waiting for people to back out. they flashed their lights, honked their horn and told me to move. Folks, I DO NOT BACK DOWN, I said NO and told them, if they heard me, that I was waiting for the spot. I was so shook up, I left my truck unlocked, MY wallet and glasses in the truck. I am quite sure they popped my hood and removed my radiator cap. This caused my truck to overheat and I pulled off the road, and discovered the problem. I made a wrong turn, wound up in the middle of nowhere and AARP Roadside Assistance ( Very bad word - I respect TOS,) was NO help they could not locate me. I called 911 and the officers were great. anyway, I thought (wrong - as in I thought I had there License plate #, evidently I did not have it right. Anyway, It was probably a fellow vet, and that sucks. I have many medical problems a messed up truck, and a very fixed income. Thank God I have a Golf Cart to get around. How I will fix my truck, if it is not Dead, I hear a valve, probably a blown head gasket ( yes, I was A Car Kid, I am now broke, Hope to catch these people and may have to give up internet, Maybe even sell my home. Yes, I am feeling bad for me but as older members know, I am a Minister and my faith WIll sustain me. Blessings to all - I am TRYING and will stay positive. Sorry about the length of this - yeah - it's a rant but I am pissed. I cannot believe a fellow vet would stoop so low.
    Blessings to All
