I arrived early afternoon at the Prophet’s chamber I have been privileged to use, near Spartanburg, and lay down to rest for a while, and to absorb the trip and the arrival.
Eventually I got up to go check out the car situation. For years I have been driving by TLC Motors. It looks no different than all the other used car dealers that dot the area, but it has always attracted me, even though I was not in the market for a vehicle.
Now I was, so I went there and found a used pickup with an eight foot bed for about half the price of what I had seen on Craigslist for short bed pickups with more miles.
I bought it for cash, will fix a few things on it on Monday, and will then have wheels to pick up the furnishings I will be buying for the house. That way I am not stuck home for hours, waiting for a delivery.
Very pleased to have that piece in place.
I asked a 50 year resident for a mechanic, and he was quick to tell me who to go to, and to use his name.
So on Monday, I will drop the truck off, go see the realtor about the three houses he has found for me, then go to the DMV and get a South Carolina driver’s license, get registered to vote, circle back around to pick up the truck, and that should be a solid day’s work on Monday.
South Carolina has been good to me on my first day here.
