headache

Another headache in the middle of the night, woke up with it. I took some tylenol migraine and it's going away. At least it's been a while since the last one. I can't pin this on what I ate or drank last night, unless cashews contribute. I didn't have all that many of those.

Funny. The son of a friend at work brought Hildy to a Honda repair place today to get her checked out. He said it "wasn't so good" - of course there is the air conditioning (I haven't kept that a secret). He also said it needs a valve job and the compression isn't where it should be. The compression is the big worry. I wonder what a valve job would do for that. Not that I am going to get one.

The weird thing is that I didn't really want to sell her to him before he took her in to the shop. I think mainly because I haven't even put her on the market yet. But now that he doesn't even want to buy her I feel funny. What I wonder is, what did he expect with a car with over 230,000 miles on it? That the engine would be perfect? I dunno. But on the other hand my gut feeling was right, that it was time to get another car, before this one bit the dust.
