FF: Shifting Gears

Category: Fixed-it FridayLori @ 12:33 am Comments (9)

I’ve shared lots of photos from my travels over the years…in fact, I went on a quick road trip this week and will have some photos to post soon.  In the meantime, check out today’s Fixed-it Friday photos from Mongolia, and thank you to Deborah Greene – a set decorator from NYC, who shared them with us!



Have you seen any interesting doors lately?  I’d love some photos!


Do you need some education on codes?  The DeCoded classes are available on-demand on my training page!

    Do you have to put the door in reverse to open it?

    I need to remember that for my next automotive-related project !

    It only works if you “clutch” it correctly.

    This reminds me of a discussion from last week.
    How many people know what PRND21 is?

      The letters/numbers for an automatic transmission?

      My 15YO daughter saw a VW Bug for sale the other day (coincidentally the same car I had in high school), and said she really loved it…”but I don’t know how to drive a standard.” How about – you won’t have a license for a year?!?!

        A piece of trivia I heard on the radio actually this morning. Only 18% of the population (non commercial) knows how to drive a standard.

        • Lori says:

          Well, my daughter will definitely know how – once she’s old enough to drive! 🙂

          Don’t tell anyone, but my husband doesn’t know how to drive a standard!
