Here I sit in the waiting room
Nobody's sick, nobody's hurt

You asked where I am this morning
You ask who am I waiting for

Waiting for Betsy to repair
Waiting for my car to get fixed

Twenty years old her battery died
Don't cry for her, don't cry for us

We're both happy Walmart will fix
Tomorrow will be our new day

Oh, what a relief!! My battery died during our worst cold weather this battery makes things good as new!! My timing has been off, all winter, I need to go to the store, don't go, pantry bare during snow storm...what is wrong with me? I just can't seem to get it right.

Betsy will be her cheery self, even a bit flirty, once she has her new battery! I could do with one myself, lol.

Car problems...Oh I hate them, but when it's fixed the sun gets brighter. :)

You captured a nice slice of life, when we are forced to wait and really just accept that we are waiting for the next thing. Thanks for sharing, Jim!

Cut and Shoot! Wow.
Love this tiny snapshot. I bet that felt like a pretty big moment while it was happening... but then it fades to the mundane

My little VW Cabrio convertible turns 20 in September! Here's to all the old gals out there!

I think cars should give you a 30 minute warning that your battery is about to die as it always happens at the very worst of times and places! Great piece Jim.
